The cylinder heads have an integral fuel rail. The heads are around R18k to replace.

Injectors are expensive and unique to that motor.

Basically take the vehicle to a good LR independent workshop before you buy it for a full health check.

LRExtreme and Landyworx are two of the best in Gauteng.

Make sure the ABS is working properly. A new ABS pump will set you back about 30k or more.
