1JZ Powered: 2003 Jaguar S-Type

After seeing this next project, one could imagine that if you could wrap a few coils of wire around Sir William Lyons' coffin, you could probably generate enough electricity to offset the potential costs due to Brexit.  Not that the founder of Jaguar would really care about someone putting a Toyota turbo inline-6 into a Ford DEW98 platform Jag from the Ford era... no, Sir William would be spinning in his grave because the project is such a mess.  Find this 2003 Jaguar S-Type with 1JZ power offered for $3,000 in  Mascotte, FL via craigslist.

For the sake of posterity, here is the entire stream of conscious listing:

  2. ...and with the blower V8 S-type R models going for relative peanuts, half-baked is being charitable.

  3. Me thinks the owner probably ends every sentence with the word yo!
    1JZ power bitches, Yo!

    I love placing the turbo where ever in the engine compartment to give the feeling that it actually runs.

    1. I think that was the 'Look, I said it was disassembled, but yeah it really DOES have a really special turbo RIGHT HERE!' part.

      I don't doubt this thing ran, I have serious doubts that all the OBD-II/CANbus stuff in the Jag worked with his swap. And I'm 110% sure that - apples to apples, his pics show a slushbox shifter - an '03-05 S-type R backdated to an 00-02 rearend pumpkin and an 8.8 Ford Truetrac or Torsen diff would work 100%, would be a nicer drive, and would cost $0.00 more than this thing plus sorting.

    2. Hey yo? Im the owner of the jaguar I have a video of it running if your interested... it is running at the moment if your doubtful and you think im putting the turbo where I want lol! Give me a text the add has been updated
