Reading Andy Broadbent’s recent reply in another thread has made me curious.
What is involved in converting an XJS automatic to a manual beyond simply having all the mechanical parts? Is there engine set up and ECU changes involved ?
It is something I’ve been pondering doing for some time.

This I do know – but for V12s only not for straight six cars.
V12 cars with the 6CU, 16CU & 26CU ECU require modification to the ECU to delete the fuel injector over run cut off. The 36CU cars do not require this modification – the revs drop between upshifts BUT the engine does not stall.

This is interesting , and I’d like your thoughts on an issue I am chasing , and whether this may be the issue.
I have a 9/87 XJSC with a manual 5speed in it, I have been chasing for some time, and annoying gremlin, that I wonder if the absence of the above modification ( I’m not sure whether its been done or not ) could be the cause of.
When driving lightly , and approaching a roundabout , or bend etc, and I back of the accelerator and ‘coast’ through or around bend/ roundabout, upon re- applying slight throttle, at the very first application I get an annoying miss/ hesitation / jerk from the engine, and then the car is off again, if I drive spiritedly around said bend / roundabout, keeping revs up with a blip of throttle and higher revs, no such, hesitation / miss / jerk occurs.
Could the absence of above modification be the cause?
