Upgrades 
 

At Roach Classics we have developed a number of performance, safety, and ride-enhancing upgrades. We modify classic cars to make them easier to live with and cope with modern driving conditions. 
 
 
Electronic Fuel Injection and Programmable Ignition Upgrades 
 
At Roach Classics, we have developed a modern Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) upgrade for classic Jaguar engines. Our electronic fuel injection advancement and programmable ignition incorporates the benefits of improved fuel consumption, easier cold starting and gains in torque/horse power over carburettor and Lucas D and L-Jetronic equipped engines. Being a fully electronic system, reliability and consistency of performance are assured. The system can be fitted at our workshop within a few days, and is then rolling road tuned so that it is tailored to your engine. This system is equally suited to standard or modified engines, and its versatility allows the car's original system to be reinstated at a later date if so desired.
