About Us


JE Engineering was originally established in 1975 as JE Motors, in Coventry. It became a limited company in 1986 and changed its name to JE Engineering LTD in 1991. In 1996 JE moved into new purpose built premises on Siskin Drive. In 1999 Jonathan Douglas became managing director. With a history of over 39 years of constant trading, JE Engineering has become one of the longest running and most respected names in performance engine building in the UK, most notable for upgrade work on the much loved Rover V8 engine.

Over the years, JE has developed the Rover V8 from the original 3.5, being among the first to introduce 3.9 , 4.2 and 4.5 upgrades. Indeed Land Rover were so impressed with the JE 4.2 upgrade that they bought the rights to that engine for their ultimate, last-of-the-line, Range Rover Classic LSE.


In recent years JE Engineering has become the leader in Land Rover modifications developing a wide range of upgrades from performance diesel tuning for standard engines up to our bespoke range of ‘Super Defenders’ including our 500 Bhp ‘Zulu’. In 2012, we became UK agent for the Startech range of body styling parts and accessories for the most modern Land Rover and Range Rover vehicles. We have used these exciting styling products together with our engine tuning as a basis for our ‘Dakar’ models of all the Range Rover vehicles.
