Seems obvious to me
Why do you need 320 hp on an off road vehicle? Better fuel economy I can see but you could achieve better fuel economy by going diesel - using either the TdI, TD5 or ZSD




BTW you know that you'll also more than likely need to change axles and of course springs ... the stock probably won't take the additional ponies. Interesting project though ... wish you luck .... post pictures

BTW - here's my underpowered, thirsty, unreliable 4.0 Discovery on the way back from the arctic ocean
