    NIMBY I reckon. The 2.2/2.4 were used in the Transit, the 3.2 wasn't.

    Don't forget Ford sold Jaguar Land Rover in 2008, so access to the parts bin got a bit limited after that.

    So curiosity got the better of me and I did a bit of digging into the torque/power outputs of the 2.2 in the regular Defender, vs. the "Autobiography" tuned ones.

    Nice of Land Rover to put this info in their brochures and tech guides, but I had to make a new one to combine/compare the two though.

    Can see why it would go a bit better...

    Had a bit of a chat with my ex-JLR mate about this as well, LoveB you can blank your EGR now if you want to, the tune we flashed is a Euro 2 emissions spec and the EGR is not monitored, so no codes if you blank it off.

    woohoo. how do I blank it off though? I dont think you can buy blank off plates aftermarket cause everyone had the issue of codes coming up so they had to be tricked to stay open
