By the mid-1990s the Rover Group knew it needed to produce some new designs that would be able to meet emissions legislation for the foreseeable future. The recently-released K-Series gasoline engine fits the bill. But Rover had no diesel engines suitable for both its cars and its 4×4s.
Rover then decided to engineer a new diesel engine design to be produced in various forms for all of Rover’s needs. Project Storm’s design and responsibility was that of Land Rover who were to build the engines. The Storm utilized Electronic Unit Injection by Lucas and an aluminum cylinder head on a cast-iron block. The overhead camshaft operates both valves and the injectors and is chain-driven. The Storm design engines come in 4, 5 and 6-cylinders. Only the 5-cylinder version made it to production as the power-plant for the Defender and the new Discovery Series II as the ‘Td5′ in 1998. Offering more power and better manners than the 300Tdi the Td5 greatly improved the market appeal of the Discovery. Early engines suffered from flaws causing premature engine failure in many cases. Although these faults were fixed within 2 years of the engine production and the Td5 is now the most reliable engine Rover offers. The engine has proved itself on numerous expeditions in hostile terrain. The engines’ mechanical strength and electronic control systems makes the Td5 much more tunable than the older engines.
