Burning diesel across the lower 48 United States, the pair averaged 58.82mpg (3.99L/100km) over 20 days. Previously the record for l...

That thing is PIMP-TASTIC!

All you need to do is pull side cladding off and put the Cossie gear on there.

My only question about this build is do you have any issues with the Intercooler or the exhaust scraping? They look very low.

No Merks on Monday nights lately. If any of you So Cal Merk owners want to see some cool German Cars including Minis, BMWs, VWs, and even a Volvo or two.

Come on out!

I am in fact buying the car. I already have a set of wheels for it so if someone wants the SAAB 9000 wheels they are more than welcome to them. They have like new tires on them. Make me an offer. I have no clue as to what they are worth.

OK guys. What is this XR worth?

Hey guys. There is a red XR here in So Cal that is available and I'm thinking about picking it up. Any of you guys have any suggestions as to what I should offer for this XR? Here is an email from the guy describing how the car is currently set up and photos from the owner. The guy certainly knows w...

Any pitfalls found in the engine removal? Is it a complete pain in the sack or? I'm still waiting for the car. I'm hoping the leak isn't in the rear main seal at all. I'm hoping it's a turbo oil feed line leak. The guy who has the car says that white smoke comes out the right fender when he drives it.

Rear Main Seal?

I'm supposed to be getting an XR soon that is running fine but appears to have a rear main seal leak. I've done rear mains on 351W and 302s and even helped a buddy do it on a 1.8T VW GTI. I've never done one on an XR before. From folks who have actually done this how difficult a process is this? Any...

Well I didn't mean Spool in the literal sense like a welded diff. I don't know why but I've always referred to that actual part of the Diff a spool. Maybe it goes back to my old days of RC car racing.
