We intend to put a Cadillac Northstar V8 in a non-running Disco! A clean broken Disco can be purchased for about $8.00 USD and nearly free is a perfect starting point. I am pretty sure I have got all of the details sorted out but we are a couple of years away from starting. If anyone is interested in attempting this feat, I would be happy to assist.
You need to address the head gasket issue on the Northstar first. Best solution is http://www.northstarperformance.com/sgstuds.php
Then that motor would be awesome in a Disco.
I had those studs put in my son's Deville and it is has been perfect ever since.
I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch.
Here it goes down, down into my belly...
