I have just bought a 1992 swb Trooper 3.1 turbo diesel (with
intercooler) to replace my old faithful G reg 2.8 turbo diesel. Is
there anything in particular to look out for when buying this
particular second hand vehicle of this age?
I got mine cheap out of a scrap yard with no mot and have not had a
chance to have a really good look at it yet. The engine sounds great
and picks up well compared to the 2.8 and you can hear the turbo which
you could not do on the 2.8.
Can it match the 2.8 for fuel economy? I can easily get 34+ mpg out of
my 2.8 if I keep the revvs around the 2500 mark and dont go silly when
Any advice would be gratefully received!
