Re: more off idle performance from a 2.3t

I have an auto XR with and 8UA and an auto with a PE. The PE timing is at 13*. The 8UA with ACT connected gets strong as the ACT signals air into the TB is cooler than at idle. The PE XR friggin' LEAPS. Anytime. Anywhere.

Re: If I want cruise control...

Don't think so. The XR's secondary PC system routes boost into the compressor intake.

IMO the XR CC is decent. And its speed sensor seems bullet proof.

Re: Scorpio Lumbar Replacement?

The stock Scorpio lumbar bladders are well made. They are essentially truck tire inner tube material. Two sheets vulcanized together. My passenger bladder was fine. It turns out that the squeeze bulb was bad. So I decided to convert to the bulbs that came with the the new bladders. How are the bulb...

Re distributor position/working clearance, all one will need is the bit (either end) and a small vise grip tool on it to loosen the two hold down screws if anything precluded using the tool itself.

Re: If I want cruise control...

I mean there is one dangling plug in the car that you plug the CC wiring sub harness into. Plug and play set up. So where does the dangling plug derive from? YMMV Thanks. I was trying to ask what do you assume that wire originates from? IOW, if one added the CC harness to it, what circuit/what part...

Re: Fuse 11 & Fuse 12 More common culprits short to ground

The fuses themselves can blow but don't short to ground.

The a/c pusher fan can fail; disconnection to see if it's the site of the excessive draw is easy.

The rear cigar lighter has been the source of an issue for some in the past.

Re: Scorpio heater core replacement

You didn't note if the current dampness in the footwell is clearly coolant or not (rain water). The cause and solution would be different if it is water.
