To tighten up the handling of this big heavy saloon we’d fit uprated shock absorbers.

GAZ recently launched fully adjustable front and rear shocks which allow you to tailor the compromise between ride and handling to where it suits you best and £62.30 per corner will buy you a full set from Air-Lift. We’d look for a five-speed gearbox too to make the most of its power and torque curves; Jaguar XJ6 Series 3s used a derivative of the BL LT77 gearbox commonly found in SD1s and Range Rovers. Kelly 4x4 sells reconditioned boxes for £600, though we’d consider used ones via eBay at around £75.


More power easily gobbles up our budget. An S3 cylinder head and cams is good value plus a session on the rolling road. Any pennies left should go towards an uprated radiator.
