Heater fan

Hey guys I have an 88 turbo coupe engine with the la2 computer in my Ranger. I am trying to set up a relay for my radiator fan. I was wondering if pin 52 (primary fan) was just a ground. Meaning it would go to ground when the fan was supposed to turn on. I have it set up as if that is true but the f...

Turbo Drain Tube

Hey guys I messed up the oil drain tube on the Garret in my Ranger. Does anyone know where I can find a drain tube and the 45 degree elbow that comes out of the block? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have asked for both Turbo Coupe and SVO rings same result. John I checked out the link. That auction is for .030 over rings. I emailed the seller and asked if he had standard. Thanks for the help.

Piston rings

Hey guys I am rebuilding my engine. I have everything I need except the piston rings. None of the parts stores around me can get them. Anyone have any suggestions where I can find them?

Thanks,
Justin

Oh yeah I almost forgot I have standard size pistons.

Dual Wastegates

I thought I read about this on here somewhere but I couldn't find it again. My Merk is no longer a daily driver so I am going to intercool it and run higher boost. I just planning on changing the compressor housing and fan to a larger setup hoping to keep the spool time down a little. To solve the p...

Third Row Seat

My wife and I are about to have another daughter and we are looking into getting a wagon with a third row seat. I know that some Taurus/Sables had them and most of the Vovlo wagons had them. Does anyone know of any other WAGONS, not minivans, that have a third row?

Yeah it was a pretty good game. I guess the saying that a good defense wins super bowls has some truth to it. Brady just didn't have the time he was used to, and I think they peaked too early in the season where the Giants peaked during the playoffs. I think the pats peaked right around when they cr...
