X-type Upgrades and Tuners


The following is a list of some companies offering upgrades for X-type and other Jaguars.

Torque Development International

Based in the UK, this tuner offers a variety of options to increase performance of the XK8, XJR, XKR and also XJR6 engines, mostly thru exhaust and intake work.  Various stages are offered, some offering as much as 100 extra HP, but in some case for track use only as some modification will cause the cars to fail emission or noise tests.

For those of you who wished the XKR came with a manual gearbox, TDI has a partial solution thru a push button shifting system installed on the the steering wheel. For just under UKP 3000, you can play Eddie Irvine and shift like an F1 driver, regaining some of the control Jaguar gave up by not offering a manual gearbox...

TDI also offers some suspension upgrades ( torsion bars and springs ) to improve handling.

Jaguar Monthly magazine had an article on the company and test drove one of their modified car, in the december 2000 issue.

This German company has been working on Jaguar for years and offer a entire program of upgrades and accessories.

On the engine, they offer different packages to raise hp along with an improved exhaust system, and push button shifting. Also available are front and rear spoilers and other trim pieces which, while nice, have a disctinct German look such as what you would expect on a BMW.

In the UK many of Arden products can be found thru Racing Green Cars LTD (see below). In the US, Arden is now (2003) represented by XKs Unlimited.
