    2011 LR4 Apple CarPlay upgrade?

    Yeah, I'm thinking about it myself as it's really the only way I've found to upgrade the NAV/multimedia system seamlessly. There are a lot of bluetooth modules that work and people are using with great success. However, the tablet seems to be the only way to upgrade the entire system while...

    2011 LR4 Apple CarPlay upgrade?

    Yeah, I've been searching for a long time for something for my truck. (I have a 2010 LR4). The problem exists because our trucks have the MOST 2.0 network and the 12+ trucks have the MOST 2.1 network. I'm still trying to figure out a way to swap everything over and upgrade to the newer...

    Please help

    x2 on the above...my gut reaction is that if the timing chain skipped, more than likely you have some valve/head/piston damage. But, perhaps if the skip is only 1 tooth you may be fine. Easy way to check is to run a compression check of the cylinders. That said, if it's the wiring...

    5.0 supercharged into an LR4?

    Yeah, I agree, one would think given the difference in expansion coefficients of the dissimilar metals the bolts should be ok....but I also thought the whole point of TTY was you torques them until they yielded....and it was this stretch yield that give you your compression. That said, it the...

    5.0 supercharged into an LR4?

    5.0 supercharged into an LR4?

    Well, the manual has pretty much nothing about the main bolts. All it tells me is that it's a cast iron main cap that is cross bolted for rigidity. It doesn't even list the torque specs for the mains. Seriously, this is ridiculous....there has to be something out there....that's why ARP...

    5.0 supercharged into an LR4?

    Hmmm.....Lemme dig through the service manual and see if it says anything! Thanks for the input! As for the ARP custom machine, I may think about it, I just feel like it's going to be cost prohibitive....and I'm already WAY freaking over budget. It doesn't help that I picked up an SC...

    5.0 supercharged into an LR4?

    Ok guys, here's the newest problem I've run into...and I'm worried it's going to hold everything up. The main bolts in this engine, as I understand it, are TTY stretch bolts....aka they're a one and done style bolt. Not a problem....typically. Unfortunately, it appears as though JLR doesn't...

    5.0 supercharged into an LR4?

    Well, it's official, I found an SDD tool for $1300. While it pains me from the bottom of my wallet to shell out that kinda money, I think it'll be worth it in the long run. BUT! I have to ask, @SCV8LR4, will you be able to provide a little tech support when/if I run into issues recoding the...

    New engine

    Just a lesson I learned recently, @djkaosone is absolutely right! Swap out the timing chains tensioners etc... What you don't want to have happen is find your "new" engine is running the old 6.5mm chain hardware. (This is my recent lesson). Long story even longer, if you have to make the...

    To upgrade head bolts or not?

    Actually, yes, that's where I found the Porsche studs....but even he couldn't stomach the $$ ARP wanted for them. That said, I think the Porsche ones are M10 and I want to put M11's in there....so hopefully a Honda stud will fit or something! LOL!

    To upgrade head bolts or not?

    Yeah, I'm trying to find some ARP studs that'll work, but dealing with them is a bit of a headache. They don't list anything by its' specs anymore, it's all vehicle based....which they "don't make anything for a LR 5.0 engine." Actually, I'm trying to track down ARP studs and bolts for the...

    Different Style Timing Chains?

    Thankfully, the supercharged and NA engines share the same timing kits. Honestly, I was originally planning on converting my NA engine into the SC variant (I have a 2010 LR4), but after buying all the internals and heads and a supercharger, I found out the blocks have like 1 or 2 small...

    Different Style Timing Chains?

    Actually, yes I did! I bought their timing kit and I thought if anyone would know, they would. So, I talked to their guy in sales/tech support and he basically told me he had no idea what I was talking about. That said, if he would have asked one of the techs, I'm sure they would have known.

    Different Style Timing Chains?

    Well, after scouring the internet, trying to look up the stamped part numbers, I FINALLY tracked it down!!!! I have the original 6.35mm chains! That's what they look like! The new chains are all the "upgraded" 8mm style. I found the above on a different forum. It's funny, because they...
