A friend and I are building a heresy endurance race car using the 3.8L from a Pontiac GTX in a stripped out Etype Jag with a 5 speed from an Fbody.
Less than half the drivetrain weight & better weight distribution of the V12, more efficient motor, lots replaceable gofast parts, and 19.7 fuel capacity.

I am sure I will be on here for tips/tricks and sharing progress.

Sounds like a cool project. Someone back in the old clubgp days swapped an L67 into a XJS
Thanks DGPB,
My Build partner had an E with a Ford 302 and it was good as a street car. We considered the LT V8 swap but we wanted something more heretical and not put us too close to our point value limit in the build for ChampCar/LuckyDog series. A lot of ppl expect an LS under a Jag bonnet but not many expect a Supercharged Pontiac V6. Will keep updated as we can!

Cheers
