After buying the RV, we quickly realized we needed a tow-behind. See: https://www.pilotsofamerica.com/com...ng-about-an-atv-tow-behind-for-the-rv.127870/ And we ended up getting a 1997 Land Rover Discovery: We do really enjoy driving this thing. However the one thing neither of us like is the engine. The 4.0 in these is only rated at 182 HP, and so the 0-60 time is best measured in ice ages. It also doesn't offer any real redeeming qualities. It's prone to head gasket failures (this one apparently had one and supposedly has new head gaskets), known for blocks cracking, and very prone to leaks. This car leaks both coolant and oil at a rather impressive rate, probably leaking a quart of oil every 500 miles and a quart of coolant every 100. In spite of these impressive consumption rates I've not been able to positively identify where the leaks are coming from, although I am thinking the oil may be from the valve cover gaskets (which are remarkably not as straightforward to get at as you'd think). The smart thing to do would be to just fix the leaks on this engine, which is temporary since new leaks will spring up from elsewhere, and maybe that's what I'll do. Not like I really need horsepower out of this thing for its mission. I could find a 4.6 and either rebuild or otherwise reseal it myself and swap it in if I wanted more power. But, even though I'm very much not one of those "LS Swap The World" people (in fact I generally dislike LS swaps because they're so overdone). However as one of my friends put it, "it's maddening how much sense LS swaps make sometimes." I kinda feel like this may be one of those times. Even a 4.8 LS (which they generally recommend as the ideal one) is rated at 285 HP, which would be a significant horsepower increase and really be plenty. Adapter plates exist to either mate to the 4HP22 transmission in there (this strikes me as a good way to blow up the transmission) or adapter plates exist that would let me bolt a normal GM transmission to the LS engine and then adapt the LT230 transfer case. Of course a manual transmission would be what I'd want to go with here, and some are available. The other fun option would be the Cummins R2.8 (which is a package that I've found extremely appealing), but that wouldn't help the horsepower complaint and at over $8k I think is still a good value, but a lot more money. The LS engine in this case is by far the cheapest part of the equation. Local Craigslist guys will sell a 4.8 complete with harness and ECU for $500. Basically every component after that will cost more, so the logical thing remains to fix the 4.0. But, it's really tempting.
