    XJ6 x300 engine swap

    Good day

    Planning engine swap on my XJ6 x300 155kw with xjr6 engine 267kw. Any posts here on the forum about this or any thoughts what you think?

    Is it possible to swap to manual gearbox aswell?

    All info welcome

    All the best!

    Anything is possible with enough time and money.
    It’s worth noting the XJR6 has many more different parts to the N/A models. More than meets the eye.
    Full car wiring loom.
    Fuel tank (with twin pumps).
    Diff- a different ratio plus LSD, rear ARB.
    Transmission, ECU, radiator, S/C oil cooler.
    The only realistic way to do a full successful transfer is to have a complete donor car. But ultimately the cost and time involved makes it not worth it in my opinion, when you could buy a real S/C car.
    The manual conversion is of course another thing altogether. That’s a desirable upgrade for many owners. If you can find the parts.

    I would love to read the notes from someone who did a manual conversion.
