Sorry it’s been a bit quiet on here. Been busy with things in the background, mainly designing a supercharger adapter Twisted Evil

The adapter is machined from aluminium to mate with the 5.0 Range Rover supercharger and intake manifold. The Eaton TVS1900 is a common choice for the 3UZ but none of them look very aesthetically pleasing so cracked on with solidworks for a few hours (weeks) Rolling with laughter

Love this Matt, got loads of questions though Thumbs Up

I’m looking at supercharging options already lol

I’m interested in seeing how winchesters gearbox holds up to some boost.

What figures are you looking for, power wise?

I’m thinking of going down JLRs route with their older blower which has the two heat exchangers on both sides of the charger. Solely for the “supercharged” casting lol

Did you got stand-alone loom?

EDIT: is the 5.0 supercharger based on the old M112 or is it new new? Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/the_black_td5/

Thanks, appreciate it.
No doubts in the LT230 at all. Probably the strongest part of the LR driveline.
Looking for 450/500hp and anything over would just be a bonus Very Happy

No the 5.0 is the new twin vortices charger. The older m112 and m90 are roots style which are basically just heat pumps Laughing
I also think the 5.0 is easier to adapt than the older 4.2

Yes it’s already running Link G4+ 1989 90 4.3 V8

I've just re-read this thread from the start, absolutely brilliant work.
I've not seen a V8 conversion with a supercharger on this site yet, although I have suggested the supercharged G.M. LSA crate engine for those who may be interested.
But the work here, using a somewhat unusual V8, and then mating it to a supercharger, is something I've not come across anywhere before.
Will you put your Defender on the rollers after completion of the work?
You have great skill, Pickles.

Thanks all for the kind words.

What can I say, I like making things fit together that shouldn’t Laughing

Yes once complete it will be back on the dyno for a re-calibration of the ecu. This is just a test fit for now, I’ve still got some other things to sort. Belt routing, intake pipes, and some other small mods….

I’ve going some other changes coming up also, so I’m wanting to do them all as a package - probably a bit of a winter project.

Stay tuned Thumbs Up 1989 90 4.3 V8
