JEEngineering boosts TDi power
OWNERS of Land Rover vehicles such as the Defender, Discovery and Classic Range Rover can boost the power output from their 300 TDi engines.
Coventry-based JE Engineering offers a conversion service to increase power output in the low to mid-engine speeds – primarily between 2000 and 3000 rpm.
The conversion, which is carried out at its premises, takes a day to complete and involves a modification of the fuel pump.
"It is not just a matter of increasing fuel output," says JEs Ron Hall. "Emission problems make this impractical. We replace a number of pump parts to increase its overall efficiency."
Typical gains claimed by the company amount to 20bhp, which equates to a two second cut in the time to 60mph from a dead start.
Mr Hall insists the conversion does not affect manufacturers warranty. The increase in power is not such that transmissions and other components become over-stressed. Price of the conversion is £948.n
