    5.0 EFI Install in Series 109

    After buying a 1995 5.0 GT engine and wiring Harness, having it rebuilt and balanced here is the result. I had to custom fab the intake to fit. Ran stainless lines from the gas tank, modified the stock sending unit to house the return line(fuel pump in tank). Custom fabbed 2.5 inch into single 3 inch exhaust using ceramic coated stock headers. The hardest part was modifying the stock harness to eliminate the unused plugs and figuring out what the engine needed, in the end had to have it Dyno tuned and a custom chip installed to eliminate the EGR. While this was beeing done I had Roberts Differentials build the front and rear diffs with 4:11 gears, this goes nice with the Ashcroft Transfer mods already done.

    I second the burnout vids. I met a guy at parts planet a few years back with a LS1 in his 88. He could do 4 wheel burnouts and get scratch on the highway. For him, the worst part was figuring out how to keep he soft top from ripping off at 80+!!

    Nice conversion. Is it driving yet?

    Still working on the tuning, switching out the 23# injectors for 19# stockers, running too rich. Moving my shop and house to SD has taken time away from dialing it in, but at least we will be closer to some nice terrain. Main reason for the conversion was fuel mileage and extra power, the 289 was tired. I will post some more pics later of the truck with the full length rack.

    I know die hard Rover guys will cry at the sight of this, but I think it is bad azz. A classic Rover with a 5.0? Hell yeah!!

    Ford owned Land Rover at one point so okay in my book. You could also use the .6L from the Tata Nano. Good to go! Not even sure that motor could spin the spare tire though!
