If you need more power, an ECU remap, larger intercooler, transfer box ratio change or the fitting of a overdrive will in most cases be sufficient to improve your drive. For your convenience we can also upgrade your Defender with an automatic gearbox. For the bigger ambitions Plower offers complete selection of performance engines. Whether you prefer to have a low maintenance and reliable 300TDI Diesel engine to a high performance streetcar engine for added power and speed. As an example, we can install the Corvette LS3 6.2 liter v8 430bhp 540nm with a 6 speed automatic gearbox or Ford 3.2 Tdci 5 cylinder Puma 200bhp 475nm connected to the original 6 speed Puma gearbox or convert to automatic.

Soundproofing and thermal insulation
There are multiple ways to soundproof and thermally insulate the Defender to make your driving experience more enjoyable. We use tried and tested products on the market that make the difference. This can be the form of spray coatings, butyl rubber aluminium skin matting. We use a combination of these for the best overall result.
If your Defender is heavily loaded or if you have engine upgrades we advise you to upgrade the brakes system as well for your own safety. We can set you up with a variety of improvements on your standard braking system dependent on your needs. Or you can go all the way with oversized discs and callipers, this requires 18” wheels and will not effect your ABS and traction control. Stopping never felt so good.
No defender is the same and a suspension setup is always a custom job. A fully loaded Defender going on an off-road overland expedition is in need of totally different setup than you demand for your precise corning streetcar. We will help you deal in which specific type of springs, shock absorbers, brushes and anti-roll bars will suit your purpose best.
Most modern cars today have LED lights for improved visibility and safety. They are more energy efficient as well. Next to the standard front and rear lighting of your Defender, we can also add spotlights, work lights, light bars, front fog lights and interior lights. Plower enlightens your path.
For off road driving and engine upgrades, improvements of the drivetrain are needed to make it stronger and more reliable. We can supply you with differential lockers, differential pegging, heavy-duty half shafts, cv joints and upgraded prop shafts.
Rollcage and protection
For long expeditions and off-roading some extra protection is desirable. We can install both external and internal rollcages of the well known and thoroughly tested Safety devices brand. Next to this we install everything from chequer plating, bullbars, tree/rock sliders, differential, underbody and fuel tank protection.
