A Land Rover Defender is a true go anywhere, do anything classic icon. It has a purposeful design and is highly sought after by enthusiasts and collectors alike. Although purposeful, the original Rover V8 engine is underpowered, leaving Defender owners searching for engine conversion options for the Defender that offer more power and reliability.
E.C.D. Automotive Design offers an engine conversion for your Defender through the East Coast Overhaul division. Getting rid of the 2.25-liter diesel engine or the 2.6-liter six-cylinder engine and replacing it with one of several Defender engine conversions offered by East Coast Overhaul is a must-have upgrade for your Defender.
The most popular engine conversion for Defenders is the incredibly powerful 6.2L LS3 V8 engine. It produces 430-hp, yet is able to be upgraded and tuned to produce 600-hp. When upgrading to the brute force of the LS3 V8 engine, additional components may need to be upgraded as well. The Master-Certified ASE Technicians at East Coast Overhaul will thoroughly inspect your Defender before the engine swap, ensuring that all components are suitable for the upgrade or will be upgraded as part of the engine conversion.
Another popular engine conversion for your Defender is the GM 5.3L LC9 V8 engine. While it does produce slightly less horsepower than the LS3, 320-hp to be exact, it’s still an excellent choice for the perfect balance of power with maximum reliability.
The GM engine conversion for your Defender, regardless of which option you choose, will come with a 2-year/50,000 mile warranty from GM in addition to the 1-year warranty from East Coast Overhaul. You get peace of mind knowing that maintenance is easy and parts are readily available should you need to replace or want to upgrade any components.

A brilliant 4-cylinder twin-turbo diesel that produces 2x more horsepower and 4x more torque than the original Rover diesel. The Cummins diesel is proven to be efficient and reliable, making it an excellent choice engine conversion for your Defender.
An engine conversion for your Defender from East Coast Overhaul will significantly increase the performance and reliability of your classic British icon.
