Keep the reaper.
One: Twin linked two shots will almost always give you 2 hits. With three shots on the bolter you will average about 2 hits as well. May as well have those hits be at higher strength.
Two: It is the piece that comes with the model. Don't add work for yourself by trying to do this conversion if the result is it is a worse tank.

ok thanks i realy like the advise
Any vehicle that has an ordinance blast should not upgrade their secondary weapons. Remember, you cannot fire the ordinance blast and the secondary weapons. The reaper is a conditional weapon that only comes in handy if the battle cannon is destroyed, or if the enemy is on the verge of charging the defiler (in which case you won't want to risk the scatter mechanic of the battle cannon).
What about living vehicle? Is that a good upgrade since it says you can use it in addition to any other weapon in the shooting phase.
Don't change any weapons, and don't upgrade any weapons either.
The only things to think about are:
Should I use Indirect or Mutated Hull? Completely up to your play-style, but those are the end of the points.
[edit- I should clarify...one or the other, never both.]

I'd say Indirect all the way. It allows you to hide and still provide great cover fire for your troops. Plus, if you're tactically minded it gives you the initiative - it forces your opponent to change plans and at least use one unit to try and take care of the Defiler. Status Quo.

I like indirect fire more than mutated hull, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't consider it. Mutated hull is great to take against opponents that don't take many heavy weapons. If they plan on popping you with some Melta Guns, chances are thats going to be a fast unit anyway.
Also, Defilers aren't that bad in CC. Against MEQ's they hit on 4+ and then only need 2+ to wound. It could be worse.
Quick question on defiler as well... if you are firing the Ordinance weapon point black, and it scatters onto your defiler, do you just conclude the results as normal? I guess you have to, but I just think that it seems kinda silly that you can shoot yourself with your own gun when your opponent is 1" away.
