Great photos. Can you tell how the cage is attached to the frame? In photo #49 I can see where they boxed the subframe and in photo #56 I see the block attached to the top of the frame but the block looks vibration dampening, I don't see any holes for mounting

Studs
I'm looking at photo 57. There are some studs sticking up out of the smaller rubber parts. Maybe these are some motor mounts or something. Has anyone found the magazine article to go with the pics? If you look at photo 40 you can see how the stock shock mounting area has been modified to allow the Jag cage to nest up between the beefed up rails. You can, also, see holes that look like they match up to the studs. I would like to see some more support for the cage and some radius rods instead of the jag arms with the cushy rubber bushings, but overall this is one nice modified Mustang.

The only info I have...

is the photo bucket account. I have tried to contact the owner of the account by photobucket does not give me an option to do that, so at this point I have no way to get any further info.


If it isn't broken..... modify it anyway!!!!

Re: Check out this Australian Mustang with IRS

Hi Guys, & girls?

I built the mustang shown here back in 2004. Still have it and the jag diff , from a mid 90's XJS has been fantastic.  Originally a 2.88 ratio (Im told Jaguar wanted to advertise a very high possible speed as a selling point.)  It was too tall for my 5 speed Tremec gearbox so I swopped a 3.4 into it.  Just nice, 100KPH @ 2000 RPM.  

I'd be happy to answer any questions. I have some pics not on the photobucket album.

Nicely done, I like the color combo. Where did you get the finned cover?

Radar the finned alloy cover came with the unit when I bought it.  I was told it came out of a late model XJS V12.
The machined alloy plate on the bottom a friend made on his CNC machine.

I will check my build pics and post some here in the next couple of days.

Re: Check out this Australian Mustang with IRS

Re: Check out this Australian Mustang with IRS

Yes Kev. Steel tubes were welded in so the bolts and nuts do not protrude into the boot space.  There is rubber blocks between the Jag cradle and the floor to cusion the whole IRS. Jaguars have this so I wanted to replicate what Jaguar engineers did.  I note many applications just bolt the diff centre direct to a crossmember.
