Don't even bother with it. There is just A LOT of things you would have to change over like the fuel tank, lines and pump, wire harnesses, computers, engine mounts, engine transmission ect. Go buy a factory made diesel Discovery.

Ditto. Pasted from a Land Rover forum on that swap: Custom motor mounts, tranny mounts, exhaust, coolant lines, PS lines etc etc will have to be fabricated as well as custom drive shafts with Discovery flanges on the axles and toyota flanges on the tranny side. And more.

Keyword: FABRICATED, other words, there are none to buy have to be made yourself

There can be a car diesel donor for the discovery, in Europe there are many.
