Re: XJR Janpeed Bi-Turbo

Well, it's gone. Fortunately to someone who already has a XJR-4.0. I'm so happy that it's going to go back on the road rather than parted out. Hopefully the gent will post up some updates over the next year. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7833/47421396352_471eeb7b06_k.jpg IMG_20190323_134536 by Darc...

Re: XJR Janpeed Bi-Turbo

Well, the clock has run down. I'm moving house within the next couple of months so this has to go sadly. I'll upload some fresh pictures and details this evening when I get back from work. Will be advertised on this forum only for the time being.

Re: XJR Janpeed Bi-Turbo

Well, seeing as Halloween is approaching, I thought I'd dig up this thread from the grave. So, where are we then...unfortunately the car is no longer running, or in a road worthy state :( It has been sat on my driveway for the last couple of years getting neglected due to my lack of enthusiam and di...

Re: XJS XJR project

Well, after some serious thinking and change in my priorities (mainly getting on the property ladder), I've come to the conclusion that I can't complete this project in the near term. Therefore I'll be scraping the project and vacating one of my storage areas. So, just a FYI that I'll be listing a l...

Re: XJR Janpeed Bi-Turbo

I've seen a couple of people who can make up sets for the 40, but they're not cheap. Making my own has never crossed my mind to be honest. I've tried sewing by trousers once, it did not end well.

Re: XJR Janpeed Bi-Turbo

The bonnet still needs wet sanding and polishing to bring it up, hence it looks matt. Its was fortunate that the hydraulic pump I bought came with the rest of the parts as I wasn't expecting to have to replace the accumulator. I just need to now sort out the rest of the minor problems with the car. ...

Think I saw it for sale on ebay a while back, with a blown engine.

That whole low compression/standard piston issue make itself known??!!!


Nope. Definitely not this one. Hoping to drive this up and down to Gaydon while I replace the turbo on my daily driver(Saab).

Re: XJR Janpeed Bi-Turbo

Guess who's back... Well, had a few issues to work through, mainly the loss of brake assist. Turned out the pump had seized which sheared the drive gear. A replacement pump and gear still didn't sort it. Seemed that the accumulator had also given up so that was replaced with a working second hand pa...
