Late 6.0 V12 Coupe,convert to a Manual Box??



Hoping to take early retirement next year and not buying a new car and I'm going to get my 1995 6.0 Coupe how I want it,after owning it for 18 years and everything is DIY.

I already have the AJ6 Engineering full performance kit on it, but together,later with other engine mods (hoping for 370-420 bhp max- H.E heads!), rads, brakes,suspension and body restore etc.

Looking to hear from other 6.0 owners who have converted their cars to a manual box.

I totally get it will change the car and might be worth doing if you have a 5.3 V12 and prefer to get away from the GM TH400 3-speed slush box and there is a lot of info out there.

I like what the guys do at Simplyperformance, but not too sure if it is worth doing for the late 6.0's, as my auto has the better GM4L80-E 4-speed one.

Would there be too much rear wheel spin?(although it will be in top form at the rear).

I guess I just don't want to regret it and waste money.

Any thoughts please.

Kind Regards

  • Hi, I’m afraid this is a cry for help, a plea for some sanity. I have a (Once beautiful) 1994 XJS 4.0 coupé with an AJ6 engine. just over a year ago I thought something was up so I took it to a Mechanic who said that the Head Gasket was bringing to show signs of Failing. Great I said can you fix it? To which the Mechanic in question said yes. Fantastic I said so I left. Long story short, I found My once beautiful XJS languishing near a river after a year of hounding the mechanic. Last week finally took repossession of my car. The Head does now need doing and the brakes and cooling system. My question is this. Does anyone know a mechanic in the south hopefully near Brighton who could breath life back into the old girl. I would like it to not be left languishing outside again but be fixed and returned this time. Anyone know someone that knows these cars and is capable of doing the job?
  • Hello all I don’t own an xjs but an etype with an efi v12 in place. Need to remove all extraneous bits from an HE efi engine from an xjs now that is in an E type. It has already lost the A/c system and the emission control stuff but I’m still left with other bits and pieces variously attached with wires pipes and the like....any tips to find a good explanation of the position and function of these things, i‘m used to RR v12’s but not jaguar. peter.
  • Hi every one. I have a 1992 4L Facelift. Once the engine has reached 'working temperature', turned off and left for say 1 hour, on restart the engine the engine falters when moving off. I thought it was fuel starvation, but a new pump has not solved the problem. The car has had many sensors replaced. But, is there a sensor that controls a warm start up? Ant ideas welcomed. Cheers.
