    Default 94 lt1 into 83 jaguar xj6

    Havent started the swap yet, but I did purchase the motor/trans with all ancillaries, plus harness and pcm.. motor is stripped now, block and crank at machine shop.. had to order special adapters for motor and trans mounts, so it's a bolt in installation...
    I'm not pulling motor out of jag (as it's still running) until new motor ready to go in!!!
    I will no doubt have plenty of questions!

    Well, its finally underway.., I got the old 4.2 straight 6 out, and am now sorting out the wiring and cleaning the engine bay before the actual swap!!! Engine bay is massive, as some of these cars came with v12s 20191214_114056.jpg20191214_114056.jpg20191214_125109.jpg20191214_125109.jpg20191214_125109.jpg

    Shes alive!!!!! After a few weeks of chasing issues of my own creation ( many thanks Injuneer) she fired up, didnt get to drive it as I have no belt on it yet due to a power steering hose issue and also no exhaust yet, but she sounds mean and strong! The hot cam gives her a gorgeous lope!!! Moving forward now gotta get her road worthy!!
