Not sure but I’ve been told it’s good for more than you’d think provided you’re gentle on throttle and don’t just stand on it suddenly. If I get time this week I’ve been planning to pop in to see the bloke who built it as he’s a bit if a legend with them and ask the question
Oops. I generally do exactly that lol.
I'm interested in the result. Mine is shuddering already. My fault.

My experience is similar to Leethal and BJM - once you get over 2000rpm the TD42 is pretty good, so if your overall gearing gets you about 2100rpm or so it would work well. I can really feel the difference as the revs nudge over that 2000rpm mark. Manual box of course, so not quite apples and apples.

Been giving this a lot of thought and wondered has anyone looked into putting a modern 6 speed auto behind a 4.2td?
All the modern diesels run better with the auto due to quick shifts smaller gaps between gears.
I wonder which transmission would best suit the td42.
Nox Vidmate VLC
I think this could give a vehicle more performance gains than most engine mods.
wasnt there a guy trying to put either a zf or 6l80 behind a zd a year or so ago?
