Hi,
Anyone done business with Wildcat Automotive?
How about their LS3 V8 conversion?
Any comments, advice?
regards,
Sam

Hi Sam
I spoke to Wildcat about 2 years ago and I believe that their vehicles are now built in Milton Keynes by Urban. There is some ambiguity about this for some reason but that was the case when I spoke with Urban around the same time ....

Mark,
Thanks for the quick reply,
I am looking for recent experience(s) with them regarding the V8 conversion.
I'm ordering their 'export kit' as my vehicle is not in the UK.
cheers,
Sam

Try doing a search on here for LS3, you'll find a few people who have used them.

Please do let us know how you get on, we all love an LS3 build on here! Thumbs Up James

Hi Sam
I remember looking at the spec of the Wildcat and the Urban. If I was to go ahead now I would probably ask JE MotorWorks (Coventry) to provide the vehicle complete. Had some dealings with them in recent past (auto conversion, remap, etc) and they are impressive (in my opinion).

Mark, James,
Many thanks for all that info Smile
JE did some work on my 2016 D90 Adventure Edition in Dubai, they were great. I drive that vehicle on a daily basis.
I am throwing everything I have at my '97 D110, starting with the LS3+Autobox, which I have ordered from Wildcat Automotive, without doing too much research into their business I might add, hence my posts here, fingers crossed I guess...
regards,
Sam

A pleasure, Sam. I’m sure you’ll be looked after by Wildcat.

They built MCMA1 (Andy) last year, not heard anything bad about them.

Please do keep us informed, some photos would be great Thumbs Up James
