XK8 XKR Sports Catalytic Convertors (Cats) 200 Cell
Do your XK8 / XKR Exhaust Catalytic (Cat) Convertors need changing or are you looking for an improvement in performance ?. Then in addition to our standard 400 Cell Cats why not consider replacing with these high quality 200 Cell Sports Cats. These on average will give a 5% to 7.5% power gain so on the Standard V8 engine with 290 bhp - 15 to 22 bhp.
With the Jaguar XK8 and XKR's now over 16 years old it is not surprising that the exhaust catalytic convertors (Cats) are starting to fail. Indeed some specialists in this area say that they are a service item and should be replaced around the 10 year mark. The internals of the Cat can deteriorate and they are also prone to fracturing as they are bolted to the manifold and exhaust system. Therefore, there is limited flexing in the system especially if the car / exhaust gets a shunt from the rear and also driving on very poor road conditions do not help here.
A Cat is made up of tiny little cells where high value metals are deposited which take care of oxidizing the gases that were not fully oxidised in the engine. This helps eliminate harmful gasses. A 400 cell Cat means there are 400 of these cells per square inch. With these 200 cell Cats the number of cells is halved therefore generating far fewer constraints on the exhaust flow.
This results in improved gas flow and increased performance typically through an improvement in throttle response.
