John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 7-11-2017 East Coast Defender blends English ownership and tradition with a U.S.-based workforce in Florida to build amazing Land Rover Defenders. The classic compact SUV is quickly becoming one of the hottest classic restoration segments in America, and East Coast offers some very interesting updates on what is perhaps the defining European "contemporary classic" compact SUV. East Coast Defender's latest project involved adding a Chevy small-block V8 to the classic Defender 90. The East Coast Defender 90's LC9 has 326 hp, up a smidge from the 68 hp the vehicle originally started with about 30 years ago. East Coast Defender adds a six-speed transmission, stainless exhaust and brake lines, EBC Performance brakes, and an improved cooling system centered around a Ron Davis aluminum radiator. “We have an incredibly diverse client base who come to us from across the country,” said Elliot Humble, East Coast Defender Co-owner. “I believe that speaks volumes about the broad appeal of our handcrafted Defenders. Like a finely tailored shirt, each SUV we build exudes the character and personality of its owner. ‘Project Blackout’ is an attractive vehicle that’s a stunning extension of its new owner.” This off-roader looks like a cool combination of old and new.

Engine swap help LC9 - LY5
Simon101 posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500Hey there everyone, New to the forum and seeking help! I spun a rod bearing on my oil burning 2008 Silverado 1500 LC9 @145,000kms (don't ask me how, I have no idea) When it comes down to it I can not find a lc9 for a reasonable price up here in Canada. However, I have found a low km complete LY5 for very cheap. I realize they are both afm, but my previous LC9 has flexfuel. I have never ran e85 nor will I ever. That being said will the LY5 drop in place of the LC9 without wiring / programming / any issues? I am in a bind and need to make a decision quickly. Thanks in advance for any help! Simon R
