D3 4.4 on LPG

#1 Post by Mogwyth » Thu Oct 02, 2014 12:20 am

On the verge of getting a Discovery 3 V8 4.4 that has a Prins lpg set-up. Its currently in the garage having reconditioned heads fitted due to a valve seat problem, as far as I know it hasn't got valve lube fitted, would it be worth doing this?

Definitely, The D3 engine isn't the same BMW unit as fitted in the L322 Range Rover, but is the Jaguar/Ford unit as in the Sport and has valve seats made from butter.

My local guy has said he cant fit electronic flashlube fro £150 or "German Oiler" for £350, any thoughts is one system really £$200 better than another.

There is a sequential si electronik system that does seem very advanced. Electronic flashlube for £150 is also a very good, proven unit. On both I would be asking if it was a multipont type ?
