1999 Jaguar XK8 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 56000 miles

Can a Turbocharger or Supercharger easily be installed on an XK8? If so, which would you recommend (details on what to order and install, and any complications to be expected), and is it necessary to install a different hood on the XK8 (I've heard it takes more hood room if one of these units is added).

Do you
have the same problem?

From just the little bit of research I have done, looks like there are several companies that make kits for your car.I think your best bet would be to do some reading from people that have used them and what problems they have encountered. Anytime you add aftermarket equipment to a vehicle there is going to be issues of driveability and possibility reliability. It also depends on how much you are willing to spend (HP is created by the cubic dollar) Try this site

there are links to many different makers of s/c kits for your Jag
