My first thought is that the timing chain is loose and has jumped a link. I had a V8 Jeep that did that.

four GI's in a Jumpin' Jeep~ These V8 engines aren't too much different than an ordinary GM mill from what I've been told...also been told that an Oldsmobile engine and transmission are a 'bolt-in' retrofit for these...Land Rover gets a bad rap...probably earned it as the reputation of British engineering hits home. How could this be? are there like a ton of miles on this mill? wouldn't you start hearing the engine sounding like a can of marbles? we need an inspection to see of all is right stateside. THECOUNT---one, hahahahha~

Check for vacuum leaks and get the fault codes read, that should be a start. Personally I'm thinking fuel problem (pressure or flow), most likely culprits would be pressure regulator and pump. If not that, the MAF sensor might have packed in...
