  • My introduction

    Hey everyone,
    I'm BIGBADBRAD and I'm currently living in Brisbane, I'm a Diesel Mechanic by trade but I'm currently out of action due to a recent knee surgery that has allowed me time to watch almost every episode of MCM
    My daily drive is an old reliable diesel Mitsubishi triton 2.8L that I've had almost 9 years with no major issues.
    My project car is an old Jaguar XJ6 with a 350 chev pushing it along that I've had for about 5 years. It's mod plated and registered but no longer in a road worthy condition. Once my leg gets better I hope to fix it up this year and do some mods to it
    hope everyone is doing well during these tough times.

    Welcome mate

    Jags are brilliant, 350 is a real popular swap in the US, is it common in aus as well then?
    I stripped my car out so much it now has 49/49 weight distribution.

      Hey mate,
      yeah jags are great....... to look at lol lots of electrical gremlins especially in mine. But I love it. And yeah the 350 is the easier conversion than a LS1 swap and is fairly common around Australia, but we have to pay a pretty penny for a 350 crate motor over here.
      I had a series 3 xj6 before this one with plans to do the conversion myself but found it was cheaper to buy this one already done.

        Mod plates? I'm in the USA and have never heard of this what are those? also is the 350 Carburated or EFI?
