Power Up
Defender Performance



When considering modern power options the LS V8 package is a handsome upgrade to the traditional lower horsepower Rover V8.

The GM performance "crate" package includes a 5th generation 6.2L 430HP LS3 engine (Camaro SS, C6 Corvette) and a 6L80E - 6 speed automatic transmission. The crate combo comes ready to assemble right from the GM factory. Built with the very best components and backed by a limited 2 year / 50,000 mile warranty.  

We prepare and modify the Defender chassis and engine bay to receive this power plant. This is a dialed in combination of technology innovation and high performance. 

Technical specifications

  • New motor and transmission mounts are welded into preset positions.

  • New fuel system - tank & fuel lines

  • New brake system to match the increased hp & torque

  • New wiring GM harness

  • Upgraded high performance headers

  • Custom (single or dual) stainless steel exhaust system

  • Larger capacity radiator / cooling systems


Our Rover Trophy craftsmen designed and engineered these power train modifications to fit into all of our Trophy collection models.
