    Default Lt1-xjs swap is almost 21 years old

    Hard to believe I did this swap almost 21 years ago and put 48k miles on it, so far. It sat for a few years, started but never driven until here lately. I repaired the split brake line, put on a new steering rack, new beehives, plugs, wires and rubber on the rear. It still rips like always. Original 1993 engine and trans / 1989 Jaguar XJS

    These are the Proform 141-131 tall valve covers. You do have to grind a high spot on the back of the alternator which is a simple procedure. I've seen pics posted on this mod and I've done it twice on my 1993.
