Looking for Your Next Project? Tune Up a Land Rover

20 Jun , 2019  

If you simply live in the garage after work, and enjoy fixing things, you might be looking for your next big project. There are plenty of things you can do to a car to tune it up, customize it, or even sell it on for a profit.

In case you are undecided, you will need to make sure that you are choosing a popular model and one hat has the potential to customize. Land Rovers are great for customizing, and they are fun to work with. Find out why.

Ignition

No matter how old the Land Rover is, you can make it start faster by adding a sport ignition. There are different kits available, such as a sport thermostat, a sport ignition switch, and coils that will make your vehicle pull away and start faster.

It all depends on the mileage of the truck, and the condition of the engine. You just have to make sure that the vehicle can take the upgrade and the electric switches are up to the task.

Classic Land Rover Models

The more legendary the car is, the better you will be able to customize it to the needs of your family or your potential buyers. Look at old movies and see which models made it to the big screen and became as popular as film stars. You might want to look at the very rare Series I, II, or IIA, or – if you have a smaller budget – some of the ex military models that can be turned into custom vehicles. Land Rover Classic can also be a good project to start.

Land Rover to a Modern SUV

Modified trucks and SUVs are having a comeback, and you can create something amazing and unique with a bit of imagination. Modifying the suspension, gearbox, or the bodywork might require a bit of skill, and you are likely to end up at a specialist garage, but the experience will be worth it.

Adding modern features and comfort is always a good idea when you are tuning up or modifying a car. Alternatively, you can look at a Used Land Rover and turn it into a luxury truck.

Land Rover Engine Tuning

Modified trucks and SUVs often suffer from a misfire problem. You might also find that the engine is less efficient that you would like it to be. You can overcome the misfire issue by checking and changing the spark plugs. You will also have to take a look at the  wires. Make sure that you check and make a note of all the wire positions before you start working.

You can use your mobile phone and take notes of what you captured, so you will not end up having to call a mechanic to sort out your wires. It is crucial that you don’t cross-thread the spark plugs when replacing them.
