United Kingdom 1989 Defender 90 Other SW Bonatti Grey

Now a soft top UZ would make sweet sounds between pubs!! Very Happy

The UZ engine family is a nice lump, it makes decent power out the box with the potential to go forced induction and put out 1000hp. Id say its a much more modern engine when compared to other v8 swaps, quad cam, vvti, sequential ignition and injection, drive by wire. A lot more complex, but they rarely go wrong. 1989 90 4.3 V8

Yes the whole loom is built from TE 55A wire (M22759/32). I usually buy from RS or Hilltop products, just whichever is cheapest - I say cheap, when you need 400 odd meters it starts to add up Laughing 1989 90 4.3 V8
