LS Series V8 Engines

This conversion kit is for the installation of a Chevy / Holden LS1, LS2, LS3 V8 engine to the standard Range Rover / Land Rover 4 and 5-speed transmissions.

The kit will also suit a Land Rover 109" and 110" wheel base including the Land Rover Defender and the Discovery fitted with the Rover alloy V8 engine.

Engine Kit

The GM V8 engine kit consists of an adaptor plate that bolts to the rear of the engine. The standard Range Rover / Land Rover V8 bellhousing then bolts to the rear of the adaptor plate. The transmission does not need repositioning for this conversion as the GM V8 engine has similar external dimensions as the Range Rover / Land Rover V8 engine.

A spigot bush, spigot bush adaptor, bellhousing cover plate and all the required bolts are supplied with the kit.

See below for kit information.

In addition to the engine kit, Marks 4WD manufacture and supply the following kits that are used as part of the conversion process.

Flywheel
Gen3-Hilux Flywheel

The new flywheel with the 153-tooth ring gear must be used. The original flywheel fitted with a 168 tooth ring gear will not fit inside the bellhousing.

The LS engine can be fitted to the vehicle without the need to reposition the transmission, or alter drive shaft lengths.

Starter Motor
Gen3-153T starter motor

The standard LS starter motor is designed to turn a flywheel with a 168 tooth ring gear. Marks 4WD Adaptors manufacture a new starter motor that is designed to turn a flywheel fitted with the 153 tooth ring gear.

Clutch Kits

A heavy duty pressure plate must be used with the LS engines. Two kits are available. One for the Range Rover / Land Rover 4-speed transmission with a 10 tooth clutch spline. The other for the Range Rover / Land Rover 5-speed transmission with a 23 tooth clutch spline. A Range Rover / Land Rover clutch kit can be used but the GM flywheel will need to be re-drilled and taped to accept it.

Refer to the MCK410G3 Clutch Kit or MCK410G3F Clutch Kit for further information.

PCM Anti-Theft Programming

The Commodore and Chevy engine management computer require a stream of data to be sent to it from the body control module prior to starting the engine. This is part of the vehicle’s anti-theft system. The stream of data required by the PCM is unique. It is possible for the input to the PCM to be switched off by changing the program information. Marks 4WD Adaptors can reprogram your PCM.

Interface Wiring Loom
LS1

An interface wiring loom for GEN3 engines has been developed which replaces the original GM engine loom. It is fitted with all of the required relays, fuses and plugs to connect the PCM to the engine. The loom is fitted with the standard GM diagnostic plug to make fault finding easy. To help with the installation a Tacho output wire, a VSS output/input wire and a TPS wire are included.

Also manufactured is an interface harness for the VT engine harness. The harness plugs directly into the VT 3 plug harness, it comes with all the required fuses and relays.

LS2 Engine Management

A full engine management kit for the LS2, L76, L98 engines using the E38 two-plug ECM is made. The kit comes with a full engine harness, fitted with all the required fuses and relays. The kit also includes the O2 sensors, MAF sensor, pre-programmed E38 ECM (No VATS) and a new pedal assembly. This kit will pass emissions testing as it includes the fuel purge wiring and ECM programming required.

For those into racing, an off-road racing engine management system is available for purchase. This kit is similar to the above management kit but is designed solely for racing purposes. This system will not pass emissions and therefore is not legal for road use.
