At the same time as an engine swap, many people opt to upgrade their transmission to either the 6hp (6 speed) or 8hp (8 speed).
This upgrade completely transforms the drive of a vehicle. A Land Rover Defender with a silky smooth transmission and seamless gear changes we hear you ask?! The answer is yes!
