this used to be a discovery..........

currently has EGR & standard fan removed, kenlowe electric fan conversion, fueling & boost will be tweeked in a couple of weeks to give a bit more guts at low revs, sitting about 1" higher than standard at the moment but many more mods will be forthcoming when funds allow!

it does what I need form a car - fit lots inside, tow lots behind, get over big hills where there aint no road!
