Basically I want to determine what the original purpose was of the blanked off water outlet on the block underneath the turbo ?

Maybe for a water cooled turbo as often used in marine applications?

As far as I know it was intended for the EGR system which wasn't fitted on the SA vehicles

Hi Hennie  I spoke to my LR mechanic and apparently it was for a pipe to the fuel cooler but on the early Discovery automatics but remained on later models and blanked off.  All I know it is that outlet and the rubber pipe connection to the turbo that have been a cause for many a TD5 engine water leak as the turbo heat evaporates any water egress making it difficult to identify.
