A grand won’t net you the best mod of them all; the ZF 4HP22 ’box from a Jag XJ-S.

However, it’ll sort out the Stag’s Achilles heel, the cooling system. A Supergill radiator from E J Ward will cost £174 while. £204 nets you an uprated header tank.


The V8 responds well to more pep and 175bhp is attainable but busts our budget. £500 will get you a Weber carb conversion with air filter both from Stagweber. Rimmer Bros sells a Lumenition Optronic electronic ignition kit for £186, which should improve all-weather usability. Total spend so far, £924 or you could keep the SUs and concentrate on a sharper chassis care for uprated dampers and springs at roughly the same cost as a Weber; uprated induction kits make the SUs breathe better at £74 from Rimmer Bros.
