    I have more information.

    I just got off the phone with Superlift. While they couldnt tell me which model works with the Discovery, they did tell me that there are actually only two basic models. "Module A" and "Module B". Now the quest is on to find which one is the one that works for the Discovery.

    I tried to find a picture of the actual unit being installed on a Disco so I could make out "A" or "B" but I could find none. Slunnie did not post a picture of the unit itself, only pics of the wiring and such.

    It seems there has never been any mention of a "Module A" or "Module B" for use with a Disco on the internet. This information is critical and would solve my problem and I would suspect many others.

    I would be a willing U.S. market test dummy for a speedo calibration for the Disco 2. If I get this info and order and install the unit I will post my findings on the 2 or 3 Land Rover forums Im registered to. This would be very helpful to many, many Disco owners in the U.S. and I would suspect there would be a run on Superlifts Truspeed units.

    Hi. My name is Kyle. I live in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    I read on a thread that you know Slunnie from Australia and that he/she did the speedometer convert from Samras.

    Im looking to do the same on my 2004 Disco and was hoping that you could help me out or get in contact with Slunnie to pass on my query.

    Im aware that Samras makes a "Truspeed" unit specifically for the Disco in Europe and Australia/NZ but there is no such product with the Samras name sold in the U.S. market. There is however, a product which aside from rebranding is identical to the Samras Truspeed unit and probably is manufactured by Samras for the U.S. market sold specifically to a company called Superlift. It was mentioned in the thread I spoke about. The unit is physically identical except it says "Superlift Truspeed". It can be found at - TruSpeed™ Speed Sensor Recalibrator · Superlift · www.superlift.com

    The problem is that Superlifts website does not list Land Rover in the application chart, only U.S. domestic brands and Toyota. Its possible that Superlift wrote out the application chart and overlooked the Disco because it isnt as popular here as the others mentioned. I doubt highly that Samras redesigned their units for this one company. Its more likely that the different Samras Truspeed units just happened to work for other vehicles since most speed sensors are fairly similar in function. That leads me to the main problem.

    Superlift lists 4 different models of the Truspeed unit. 33001, 33002, 33003, 33004. Again, because Land Rover isnt listed in the application chart Im not sure which unit to order. Ive tried prying this info out of Superlift but the not-so-gentle-man I talked to was much more less than helpful. I also tried emailing Samras in Iceland but I cant type in Icelandic and apparently they cant read in English.

    What Im looking for is some indicator on the Truspeed units that worked on the Disco 2 in other countries such as yours. Maybe an obscure number printed somewhere on the plastic housing, sticker label or packaging so I can relay this information to Superlift to differentiate between the different models they list and order the right one for my Disco. I would prefer an indicator from the housing itself since this is more likely to not have changed since the label and packaging could be completely different.

    The lack of this information has caused me to delay making a decision on new tires sustaining the inevitable highway tire blowout from my 255/55/18 factory tires. If you can obtain this info or relay it to someone who can I would be forever grateful and would play great host should he/she ever come vacation here to New Orleans.

    Thanks,
    Kyle C.

    Ian I have got some interesting issues on my 99 P38. I haven't torn into it much yet but far enough to know I have an OVERFILL showing on the dipstick and gas in the crankcase. I asked my RR dealer tech about the oil cooler being plugged and he said he had never seen it before. Your post about sludge plugging the pickup and maybe the cooler made a lot of sense to me. Have you seen or heard of a cooler getting plugged?
