Who's Merkur did i see in Indio...

Well i spent the day in Palm Springs for work and spotted one of the nicest examples of an Xr4ti i probably will ever have the chance to. It was in for an alignment at the Firestone in Indio, and it was a Red. Only had 31,000 miles on the cluster and definitely looked the part of showroom too. The i...

Waste-gate ?

Cant remember where i read it, but someone mentioned to connect the vaccuum line from the actuator to strait manifold vaccuum if it wasnt operating. Since i did that, my turbo actually would bleed off boost above 10psi, however that only lasted about 5 or 10 good pulls now it seems like it wont rele...

Re: Turbo Ford Meet at Frisco's

Sorry i didnt make it, the heat and my autobox would have surely left me pucking red fluid all the way down the street... but next time i will be ready. Im personally not a fan of huntington beach, or much of the OC for that matter.

Re: Spotted Xr in Lakewood,Ca

I dont know the make or model of wheels, but they surely werent stock.. Some style of a straight multi-spoke design, i think they were black, but could have been a very dark gray, looked like 15's but could have been 16's. i wasnt thinking, i should have snapped a picture of it. The car was in prett...

Off to Charlotte for the week...

Anyone have any suggestions for the Charlotte area. My job is sending me there for the week and i hate being inside, let alone in a nasty hotel room. I was wondering if anyone has any good ideas for ways of spending some time while im there?

Re: An autocross story - 2011 OVR SCCA Governor's Cup

White,

where did you go? I went to El Toro about a year ago with my old T/A. 180k miles and still placed 10th in SK1 for my first showing was pretty well i think. havent had the nerve to go back yet since my Merk barely moves a mile a week.
