Since Goldie went bang, I'm doing some research.

And what better place to get opinions and experiences than here!

Currently leaning towards LSA or Barra.. thoughts?

Yeah depends on Budget. LSA Crate engine around $10k LS3 $7k. 6L90e $4k and Marks transfer adaptor kit $1850 or could use Patrol manual box with Marks adaptor kit $2750

Budget could probably handle LSA. I have looked into costs more weighing up opinions of if its worth doing etc

I would love to say Barra, but surprisingly I'm going to say anything LS2 upwards

I'm saying this purely because LS conversions have been getting done for so long that there is a bucket load more info for diagnosing any issues, unlike that Barra that is still pretty new in the scheme of things.
Mine seems pretty well sorted now and it is awesome to drive and I'm loving it, but it has taken a loooong time to get there as you know.
You're on the FB page so know this is getting better though as more and more get done.

I admittedly know bugger all about the LS conversions, apart from one member that I've had contact with that had issues due the quality of instillation. Knowing bugger all about them I could be wrong with the electrical issues faced here also?

With your passion for mud, whatever involves the least electrics is my choice

Yeah that Christian King does some good work. https://www.facebook.com/KING-BUILT-...ref=ts&fref=ts

Reckon that will be next conversion. Should get a good price for my TD42t considering how non existent genuine new engine parts are

"Other" would be something diesel for me. I like the old oilers.

It would be a lot cheaper finding a written off car with a lsa as you will get trans, loom and accessories. Honestly a lsa and a barra are going to be 2 completely different in power, reliability and cost. I had a ls3 in mine which didn't really cost that much after selling the td and buying my ls3 cheap. In SA you will need an engineers report when you go bigger than 5.7. Under 5.7 just requires Regency approval.

LSA if you want it to sound good.

Barra if you want it to be quicker than an LSA and cheaper. Plenty of people have done the conversion without issues..

Ahh I'm no petrol fan, however don't underestimate the Barra.
My daughter has a 2003 ex taxi dedicated LPG BA wagon with 730K kms on it. The oil is still gold at service intervals.
They're very tuneable, easy for parts and the trick ones with turbo spec match pushrod and even OHV V8's in performance.
Instant low RPM 6cyl torque too, very handy for 4WD which is largely torque hungry for most applications.
Remember that the Charger 265's were quicker than the 192 XU1 and the big 351 GTHO on the quarter mile due to smooth and early torque.

Instead of a turbo barra, what about a turbo TB48?? The conversion itself should be relatively hassle free
