I think deflating the tyres from 35 to 15 would do the trick.

TD4 has been quite reliable to me on my 2013 car, closing up on 70,000KM

Just normal service and changing the intercooler hoses to Entreq SS to withstand the heat and a Turbo Manifold Gasket to replace the weak OEM one because on turbo spool up it whistles (Air leak). 2013 Defender 90

So have it for around 6 months now and the following modifications are on the way,

Rainbow Audio 4" Component Speakers for the front & 4" Coaxial for the rear.

BAS 170 remote map (in the future IC pipping & Intercooler will be done).

Planning on keeping the Defender in Dubai in the near future. 2013 Defender 90

I hope you enjoy the remap as much as I do. I think I'd want the bigger intercooler asap with your heat out there!

Any new scenic photos? Very Happy James

I will be getting it, it is just a matter of time.

I have contacted Entreq regarding their Intercooler pipes but so far no reply. I have the pipes along with Alive Ultimate Intercooler & BAS map on my 2013 Defender and very happy with the outcome. 2013 Defender 90

Intercooler for your viewing pleasure, Bas Remap already done and very pleased with the pickup from midrange which is now more enjoyable to drive.

The intercooler and silicone pipes should be done by midday tomorrow.

Great work. Interesting to hear if you feel any difference with intercooler or if it's just more gentle on the engine.

Look forward to seeing more. James

Its in between gentle and performance...lets just say its more relaxed getting a move(based on my 2013 which has similar mods).

I will not push it as crazy as my 2013 Daily Defender which started leaking in the turbo manifold gasket due to high EGT. Recently got CEL with a code P2336 and now fitted Nakatanenga Turbo Manifold gasket for both defenders for the peace of mind. 2013 Defender 90

Speakers installed momentarily,

Rainbow 4" Components upfront and Rainbow Coaxial rears

Much better clarity and should listen to it louder midrange and top end when the amp is connected. For the sweaters modified the OEM housing to fit the new Rainbow one's for OEM + look.

You wont notice a visual difference unless you look under the dashboard and see the speaker looks different yet still OEM + look.
