    JAQUAR V-8 CONVERSIONS

    Why should I convert my Jaguar to a Chevy driveline? Which Chevy engine should I use in my conversion? What about SMOG requirements? Which transmission is best for my conversion? How much will a used Chevy driveline cost me?

    Jaguar is world renowned for the beauty, comfort and luxury of their cars: Unfortunately, Jaguar is just as notorious for the gremlins exported with their cars. Converting the English engine and transmission to "Made in America" power provides you with reliable , low maintenance motoring at an affordable price. Imagine, driving it there and back again Our Conversion provides you with three main benefits: The Chevrolet V8 is easy to install and maintain, meaning fewer problems and expenses now and in the future.

    And if you have the grueling commute every day, your conversion will pay itself with mpg in the city and mpg on the highway. Wrecker bills and car rentals will vanish instead of your day off. Reliability and economy are the reasons why most people convert their Jaguars, but driveability is what they love the most. The V8 possesses more torque and power than the Jaguar 6 or 12 cylinder, giving you more GO off the line and more passing power on the highway. Also, the V8 driveline moves the center of gravity slightly rearward and lower, improving handling.

    All in all, the conversion will give you confidence and peace of mind. With a Chevrolet V8 in place, you "exorcize" the typical demons: Unfortunately the lack of oil on your driveway will cause it to rust and the local dealer will probably refuse to service your hybrid kitty.

    Other engines fit in the space but all require compromises: Plus the Chevrolet V8 and parts for it can be found the world over. Everyplace has a Chevy water pump. Use a 5. Other V8 sizes, , small block etc. Four OEM systems are available, throttle body injection TBI that uses a carb looking unit with two centrally located injectors, tuned port injection TPI with an injector at each port, the high revving LT-1, and the completely new Vortec V8 motor.

    You must buy a custom harness or modify an original harness from the aftermarket FI guys. There are many businesses that sell tech manuals, complete harnesses, ECMs, filters and FI related hardware, here are two we use:. GM completely redesigned the small block with the LT It is a very clean setup - not the 80's bag on snakes, plumbing and servicing nightmare.

    The LT-1 and derivative have the EGR plumbed externally into the rear of the intake because GM deleted the exhaust crossover passage in the heads. It is best to keep the EGR because it reduces spark knock, reduces emissions, and allows the computer to signal more ignition advance better performance.

    I have a pair of exhaust manifolds with the required modifications, parts, and plumbing necessary to retain the EGR. AIR - air induction reaction - is also accommodated with these manifolds a must in communities with emission controls requirements.

    AIR only functions the first minute or so of operation - it helps complete combustion and light off the catalytic converters sooner.
