Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
The Jag S Type 'box arrived today. It must be half the weight of the Essex V6 4 speed, I could lift the Jag 'box with one hand (just about). It is a lot more compact than the Ford Essex 'box. Also it is 5 speed (hopefully if it works). Until this arrived I was still unsure which way to jump, stay will the Essex or go Jag AJ V6 (Duratec). This 'box is so compact and light, it has to be the future. I know this will be a challenge as I know nothing about engine management, but it is time I moved to the 21st century. Now just need to check out the 'box fully, currently can't find reverse (it has no lever with it), then find and engine. I know this is complete madness and you don't need that much power in a Phaeton, but it would be good cheap fun.
