FS: Scorpio hubs - all 4 corners (upgrade your XR?)

Dismantled my Scorpio and thought I'd offer these up here since some like to upgrade the XR with beefier hardware. I rebuilt one corner of the vehicle at one point, but I don't recall which corner. Otherwise, I'd recommend close examination of the bearings and at a minimum replacing the seals and re...

FS: OE, lightly used Scorpio radiator

Picked up this radiator a couple years ago after my stock one exploded. Genuine stock replacement in excellent condition. It does NOT have a trans cooler in it, so you'll need to hook up an external if you're running an automatic. $75 plus shipping from Tipp City, OH. Pics will be provided if there ...

Re: No longer looking ..WTB: Auto XR in or near OH

Good luck with the Mitsubishi. It is really difficult to find a good, reliable car for $3000. Some years ago, my son was shopping for a Honda or Toyota in the Dayton area, and couldn't find one for a reasonable price. So he shifted gears, and found a nice, low mileage Mazda Protege in Cleveland tha...

One hopes not Rice like... :( But then maybe he valued dependability and reliability higher than boost addiction... :) YMMV :<) 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS. Very nice body/interior. Any required maintenance items are minor. Great first car for him. With a 3K budget, we were running into a bunch of j...

You can't attach them, but you link to pics you've put online on an image hosting site.

No longer looking ..WTB: Auto XR in or near OH

Son is looking for his first car. Thinking about an XR. Anything in the 2 to 3K price range? Let me know what you have. Has to run, drive and have good all season tires. Minor Merkurisms ok.

Close to Dayton, OH is preferred, but will travel for the right vehicle.

Re: Flood damage pics and videos

I definitely don't want to scrap the shells, if I can get them to someone can use them. I know I could get them running perfectly. I have however lost the ambition to do so for these vehicles. Also, I don't really have the time and financial resources to sit on these while I fix them. The Scorpio wa...

Re: Flood damage pics and videos

that is the worst Tony, what makes it disgusting is that the insurance companies don't cover it. Why do we let them get away with that? Well, with just liability coverage, that's what I get. The flood coverage I have only covers the dwelling. So, damage like garage door, patio door, drywall, water ...

Re: Just joining the XR4Ti crowd hoping someone knows this c

Oh, and make sure your ECU ground is good. You'll get all kinds of weirdness if that isn't grounded properly. Orange cable. Strapped on turbo somewhere.

Re: Just joining the XR4Ti crowd hoping someone knows this c

I've not read much of this thread, so you may have already been down the path of replacing these items: 1. TPS. XRs seem to be very picky about TPS quality and adjustment. If you're getting weird response at certain throttle positions, look to the TPS needing replaced. 2. Smoke? Could be turbo seals...

Re: Flood damage pics and videos

Jeeze, Tony, those pics are painful to look at. I actually feel sick. I'm so sorry. It was really unreal to watch it all happen. I had time to move the cars, but had no idea that we would flood so badly. I've had 12" or so of water in that area before, and never in my wildest dreams could I imagine...

Flood damage pics and videos

Witness the horror of a Scorpio, XR and Contour being almost completely flooded. This happened a few weeks ago in my back yard. I'm most likely going to part out the vehicles and scrap the remains. Unfortunately, insurance doesn't cover this loss, so I'm without a running vehicle. Luckily, my wife's...

Re: Scorpio Change Delineation Thread

Something else to add that I cannot confirm exactly, and I don't know if this is even of interest, but it is something to note. The environmental control computer thingy had a change at some point. The control voltage for the high speed fan operation was increased from about 5 volts to around 10 vol...
