The Story of Alternative Conversion Engineering
By Land Rover Enthusiasts, For Land Rover Enthusiasts
Alternative Conversion Engineering LLC was started after a friend reached out to Todd to find an alternative engine option for the Discovery 2 instead of replacing the factory Rover V8.
Todd has been a lifelong fabricator and a frequent participant in the Swamp Buggy Races. After seeing the capability of Land Rovers, Todd agreed to start on "a little engine swap project" that turned into over a year of work.
From the beginning, Todd wanted to create a 'clean' conversion: no welding or cutting, favoring bolt-on and off-the-shelf components. He wanted something an enthusiast could do in their own garage at a reasonable price. After seeing the success with the first conversion, Todd decided to start producing conversion kits for the Land Rover community.
