Thanks Kent and Rob,

A local Landrover specialist has been trying to sell me a 3.9 for the SD1
but I said I would only consider a 4.6 engine. He caught me by surprise and
said he has a 4.6 available soon. Thought I should find out how easy the
conversion is before I next talk to him.

1986 VDP

It's worth chasing down an "interim" front cover for the 
better oil pump.  SD1 is one of the few saloon 
applications with enough room in the engine bay to 
accomodate the extra length. You would also have to switch 
to a serpentine belt arrangement, but that's not too
