I just found this board and it looks great. I have a 97 Xk8, one of the first few made, and I was thinking of putting a new rear end ratio on it. The dealer is looking into some racing program in england for me, that might have a unit that fits. I also have a 99 XJR and I was wondering if anyone has raised the boost on their xjr or xkr???<p>Spencer<br>97 Xk8 topaz<br>99 XJR Silver

Spencer,<p>I think both Aston Martin and Jaguar have an in-house works department for such upgrades. If you are looking to have your car upgraded in England, it might be a good idea to go to the actual car manufacturer (Coventry) first before looking at upgrade programs from non-Jaguar companies. I hope this helps.<p>Darrell<p><br><i>: I just found this board and it looks great. I have a 97 Xk8, one of the first few made, and I was thinking of putting a new rear end ratio on it.

One quick question: although the XK8 could conceivably benefit from more power, why not sell your XK8 and order an XKR? 370 hp is more than enough for most drivers and I doubt one could improve the Eaton blower on the XKR.<p><br><i>: I just found this board and it looks great.

The only dealer I know of for their products that ships to the U.S. is <a href="http://www.mgracing.an/">MG Racing</a>, a reputable company that has been supplying the people on bimmer.org with quite a lot of accessories.<p><br>--Alan
