The Td5 engine fitted in Defenders and Discovery’s is one of the most ‘tuneable’ engines available and it responds well to modifications including a PSI power tune box, larger intercooler, EGR removal kit and decat pipes. However the turbo will only boost to 14.7psi in standard form and this will quickly limit the potential from the modifications you have made. The ECU will cut fuel to the engine if it detects an over boosting situation, but there is a solution.
