swapping engines on a GAS range rover 2002 to a DIESEL 2010 one

Asked by Aug 27, 2013 at 02:41 AM about the 2002 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello all... i'm new here... i'm purchasing a 2002 Range Rover based on "i love the look and ride"... however... i hate the gas mileage.  I have the opportunity to pick up a 2010 4.4 diesel range rover motor (Ford) for a great deal... (get's good mileage) however, will that new diesel 4,4L v8 FIT where my current gas guzzling v8 is now? (i'm sure i'll need to fabricate the motor mounts, but, how can i know if it will fit under the hood or not? thanks!!

May be you should rethink this. the electronics are not compatible with a diesel so all of that will have to be changed, check RPM redlines on the gas then compare with the diesel, gearing is different from gas to diesel, fuel system will need conversion to diesel, exhaust will need to be converted to diesel demands. So if you still want to do this then you need to have very deep pockets and a good access to an auto salvage that will have all of the stuff you will need to do this change over. You better check with your DMV and emissions stations, your rig may not even be allowed on the highway after you complete it. Just some things to think about.

It is probably not a great idea to do it on a smog required car.
