  • Sold my Camaro last week, so now I have freed up some money to start doing a lot more on the Jag, so first things first I need to start looking for LS1 motor and gearbox (6 speed manual ) , but I was also thinking maybe a LM7(5.3L)

    • I've been told that the 5.3 motors are very receptive to boosted applications...

        It is funny you should say that, I was thinking I could slap a turbo in the engine bay, I think it would look very nice

        • Alot of guys are starting to run the 5.3 in demo derbys.. Aftermarket intake, Holley 500 cfm 2 barrel dizzy instead of the stock stuff..
          Just a cam change.. I've seen many get very hot running without water.. So boosted should be a piece of cake.

                  Hellinor- 2005 Mustang GT-Bolt ons, in need of a turbo

                  War Wagon- 1966 Bel Air Wagon-355 Crate motor, 700r4, flies pretty good for a brick...

                    Hi there it's a steel body, I'm thinking of painting gun Metal Gray and doing the chrome in Black

                      My kid is going to the University of Auckland next semester. Leave the US on February 8th. I

                            She had just opened a letter saying she had just got her airfare reservation to Auckland. We were visiting her at her dorm. I'll keep you in mind Bryan! Thanks for the offer,

                                That would be bitchin'! sorry, Should have caught on sooner that it was steel. I was under the assumption that Jaguar made all their cars from Aluminium.
