If you would like an even more powerful TGV/ TDI clutch kit please contact us, we can manufacture a range of Ceramic and Kevlar Paddle clutches to suit all applications too (Including racing/ Winch challenge/ Big power Engine conversions.

TGV kits can cause Gear chatter if the gearbox is worn (lots of backlash) We suggest running the R380 gearbox using MTF 75W90 with a higher viscosity to avoid gear chatter. (Stronger springs in the driven plate can reveal the symptoms of a worn gearbox, but 100% necessary for high powered TDI engines!)


Developed by request for Motor Diesel Engineering (UK Specialists in the 2.8 HS International engine remanufacturing) :

The International HS 2.8 engine is a larger capacity version of the 300 Tdi, it still utilises the simplicity of the 300tdi yet with more power and significantly more torque. The HS 2.8 comes as standard with a VNT turbocharger and suitably uprated fuel injection pump, these, in conjunction with the extra capacity the engine produces 135bhp as standard with 277lbf ft of torque at 1400 Rpm.

LR 300 Tdi & HS 2.8 comparison:

LR 300Tdi                                                        International HS 2.8 TGV

Power: 111 bhp @ 4000 rpm                        135 bhp @ 3800 rpm

Torque: 195 lbf ft @ 1800 rpm                     277 lbf ft @ 1400 rpm

These engines have remanufactured 300Tdi cylinder blocks rebored to 2.8 with a VNT turbocharger fitted. The engines produce the same power and torque as the standard International HS 2.8 TGV engine, all engines include the following NEW parts, cylinder head, injectors, Injection pump (reconditioned), 2.8 crankshaft, 2.8 connecting rods, 2.8 pistons, timing case, timing cover, gears, timing kit, waterpump bracket, waterpump and all gaskets. The engines are complete with NEW alternator, power steering pump and vacuum pump.

The POWERspec is the next stage up, ideal if you use your Land Rover as a work horse. If you tow regularly or carry any extra weight like expedition trucks do then this is the spec for you. It’ll handle highly tuned road monsters or hard worked off-roaders all day long. If you want reliability and driveability from your mapped motor the POWERspec will keep you moving forward!     (Pedal weight is similar to a TD5 Defender- slightly heavier than our TDI kits)

  1. Colin Argent

    Good advice, great service and a clutch that is both heavy duty and light to use

    A couple of weeks ago I had to change the clutch on my 200tdi 90, was doing some research and gave Luke at LOF clutches a call very helpful guy. I ordered a power spec clutch with hd release bearing and rear seal, the parts arrived the next day and I was very impressed with the quality of everything and the care that had gone into packing. I fitted the clutch myself and had some problems fitting as I’ve never done one before so though I’d drop him a message and was expecting a reply in the morning as it was 8pm, no I got a phone call back straight away and helped me though everything now that’s service!!!!! I’m very impressed with the clutch it’s made my 90 so nice to drive with a very light pedal weight now. After 500 miles of Bedding in I had some hay deliveries to do and it’s proved it’s worth and doesn’t slip at all unlike the old one

    I have one 110 with 2,8tgv gen2, renforced r380 and 1,22 lt230 and 37″ tires. The 2,8rgv are tuned a lot so have changed clutch a lot because no one stand the challange of holding the torque. Some where around 450 NM.
    Now I got the TGV clutch kit with heavy duty release bearing from luke and lof clutch. Now the worries is over. Easy to drive and holds every heavy pull I give it.
    Tumbs up
