    I know right away the first gen AJ-V8’s differ significantly. Was reading a Jaguar forum where a guy decided to buy a Lincoln LS motor for his XK8 (he blew something deep in his 4.0 XK8 block), tried using his XK8 heads with the Lincoln LS block, and the heads were slightly different and could not bolt up without modification.

    Considering the Lincoln variant is different from the Jags in the same generation, I find it very unlikely that second gen heads would fit on the LS either.
