Can anyone point me into the right direction as to what engine I should use. I have all the mechanicals in place just need help on engine selection.
As I understand it will be a lot easier to run a M57D30 engine with dde4 ecu. I would like to run the M57D30TU engine - 2003 150kw 410nm@1500-3250rpm engine. Is it dde4 or dde5/6/7? The torque at low rpm and flat torque curve would suit the Defender well. And if it is not dde4 is there any way I can run the ecu standalone?
I have been in contact with Rally raid and they have looms for dde4 and dde5 but apparantly I will also need a cpu for the dde5 at additional cost. I do not mind buying the loom but loom and ecu is £1250 plus postage and taxes and with the R/£ exchange rate it becomes VERY expensive to go the dde5 route.
If the M57D30TU is dde5 is there another way to get it running standalone?
Any help will be greatly appreciated
