It was long enough yes... Just!

I ran it down the side of the dash centre console, under the carpet and over the front seat box, then through the floor at the top/rear of the seat box just in front of the seatbelt receiver bracket (shown circled red). Then it goes under the rear floor and back into the cabin at the rear of the sub to be plugged straight in. I used a depinning tool from amazon to remove the sub connector molex plug in order to keep the holes in the floor as small as possible. Also fitted grommets

Can get some proper photos on the weekend if required, until then I have the following...

New brakes built up to fit all round...

Would really like to fit a Pioneer 4x4 complete hard line replacement kit but they don't seem to list one for TDCi / ABS. Will have to contact them.

Looking forward to fitting these when the weather breaks

Defender developed a squeaky aux belt recently so seemed time for a new one. 80k on the original LR belt which I thought was reasonable

Nice easy job, was half expecting it to be a pig

Whilst I was there I removed the idler pulleys and tensioner and repacked their bearings with grease as they had gone a bit dry. Also cleaned/degreased all pulleys and rolling faces

Nice squeak free running Thumbs Up > 110 XS Double Cab

It had sometimes confused me why I couldn't get my sidelights to illuminate on their own.

From the forum I came to learn of the dim/dip "feature" and was keen to remove/bypass it

There are a few ways to do it... unplug engine bay connector, use jumper wire, fit LR bypass relay YWZ10003L (£30!!) but I decided to modify the existing relay.

Some steps should anybody else want to do this...

Remove the big pink relay from the board under the steering wheel and unclip the cover from the base

Cut/desolder/remove everything but the two necessary pins - these are the two that remain on the left hand relay below

I managed to source a bigger GT2256 turbo from a 3.2 TDCi

Externally it looks to be physically very similar to the factory 2.4/2.2 GT2052. Manifolds are the same, same hole centres, bores etc. Turbo outlet diameter is the same etc.

Plan is to build a Hybrid turbo by fitting the 56mm compressor side from the 3.2TDCi GT2256 to my 2.4 original 20mm hot side resulting in a GT2056

The 3.2TDCi GT2256 has a six blade compressor wheel vs the factory five blade

Below are some side by side comparison photos.

Hybrid turbo built up and fitted and initial impressions were not great! But Pete Bell provided me a tweaked map to provide the extra fuel required to match the extra boost and it really came alive. All in all a good outcome, especially considering the new turbo was under £100 and only took a couple of hours to fit. To be completely honest though not worth it if you're looking to pay £1000 for a hybrid turbo

Seams to be leak week

- Leaking AC condenser. Replacement sourced from https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/363436234249
- Leaking intercooler (Alllisport). Replacement sourced from BAS
- Leaking heater control valve. This will be the third replacement I have fitted. Went for a genuine JLR part this time rather than the cheaper ones available online
- Oil leak spotted underneath... Not sure where it's coming from yet. Have degreased in an effort to better locate the source. Possibly sump gasket or a PAS hose union.
- Cash leaking from bank account. Source suspected to be Land Rover Defender

Love the dark interior. It’s one of the less technical modifications I’ve done over time but still smile at it every time I’m in the car.

BAS intercooler is in. First impressions… Immediate obvious difference in power. The turbo still spools up the same but since the boost is actually getting through to the engine now rather than spewing out of the split intercooler the engine picks up immediately and comes on song nice and low down in the revs then pulls right through the rev range.
I’m not saying the BAS one is better than the Allisport, just saying that having the pressure side of the intake system sealed is a definite bonus Laughing

Also fitted the new heater valve complete with cold temp return spring mod… Works a treat

Great work going on there Hank, liking the new intercooler Thumbs Up

I too had the same problem with my Allisport intercooler developing 2 holes like yours, as you had more of a choice other than Allisport i was not so lucky but in the end i found Airtec and had the choice of colour Thumbs Up 1996 Golf Blue 300Tdi 110 Pick up. Keeper.

Clayton.

Tbf after 3 years in mine my Allisport popped as well, though they replaced it within a few days of reporting it so cant complain!

Good to know about the darker interior. I dont think ill bother trying to recover it, experimented on my 90 and it didnt go well Embarassed it looked ok but not good enough tbh.

So dying/painting is a better option! What did you use? Instagram @defender_ventures
