Here are the links to make it a little easier for people that can't see the images in the original post (like me). These are hosted by Facebook, so you may have trouble vi...

Re: Getting ready for cold weather...

Why do I mention brands and part numbers in these posts? If you need something local you probably can find Gates parts. I would prefer the silicone hoses offered in here, certainly, but maybe you need a part now. So, thanks for reading this and hopefully it offers info you can use. Thank you for po...

Re: 86 XR4Ti

There are links at http://www2.merkurclub.net/pages/resources.html and I can say I'm comfortable with recommending any of them. They've all been around for years and have g...

Re: 1987 Cosworth for sale in Ohio

I'd like to have one, but I hear that parts availability for those makes an XR look like a Camry.

Re: Turbo life...

The original manifold had a 1983 part number, hence the "E3". It was prone to cracking, making the E6 the preferred replacement.

Re: Hotter cams and stock ECU

What I'm really reading here is that the EXP with the HO engine uses the same type of engine management system as the 2.3 Turbo (VAM for air intake measurement, fuel injected, EEC-IV ECU) and has a wiring harness that's either plug and play or close enough that a few pin swaps will make it so.
