You'll need to be a bit more specific. For example, Range Rovers used the old Land Rover V8 dating back years up until 2002 in the P38, then went to the 4.4 BMW in the L322 up until 2005 when it was replaced with a Ford 4.2 litre job. Year of manufacture will be a factor in the others too.

and it's not the manufacturer of the kit you need worry about but who installs it. Even the best kit bunged in by a numpty won't work but the cheapest of the cheap, installed properly will work fine. Just not for that long which is why they are cheap......

'93 Range Rover 4.2 LSE, Lovato LovEco, sold
'98 Ex-Police Range Rover 4.0, Singlepoint AEB Leo, my daily motor
'97 Range Rover 4.0SE, eGas multipoint, a project.....

That's a question probably best directed at who you're planning to get to fit the kit, as some of them aren't exactly run of the mill cars so would be best to find someone with prior experience! I know that some of the installers here have done the X5 and the RR Sport, but don't know about the others.

Trouble with RR sport is lack of a nice tank option

I looked into Bentley W12 but it didn't happen - I seem to recall a possible snag but don't know what; maybe it was just inlet access or space.

I'm sure you already know none of those cars are cheap to convert properly, as said be guided by the fitter for something truly suitable for the car.

They can all be converted but also have slight snags.

The worst of the list is the RR Sport as they are best with a remapped ECU and are also known to suffer VSR.
