  • Re: 1954 MK7 Jaguar

    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.

                so the next step is to buy the motor and gearbox (LS1 )

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

                      Man, that's a nice looking car! I have to say at first I was look warm on it but now I can see you vision of it and it's great. Turbo 5.3 and 6 speed, awesome.

                            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.
