Re: Saab 9000 Heater Core

Better hurry up Mike, I'm starting to actually get this car together and don't want to rip out the dash again. Looks like a custom piece like your radiators. I'm happy you're having this done. You are correct...and...they're done. Tricky to get them right, but I'm happy with the results. www.merkur...

Re: Merkur Depot Exhaust Fitment

the question about the exhaust was, is there a section missing where the catalyst goes? Or is the system complete from front to rear? http://merkur.50megs.com/photo2_4.html : "Connection between the downpipe and the "cat-back" system is at the owner's discretion. (There will be a void where the sto...

Merkur Depot Exhaust Fitment

3" exhaust, the info is up on the site: http://merkur.50megs.com/photo2_4.html The 3" exhaust uses all of the factory hangers. It hangs where the factory exhaust hangs. Downpipe bolts to the turbo where the stock downpipe bolts to the turbo. Downpipe uses the factory hanger on the trans mount crossm...

Re: Comprehensive Upgrade List for XR?

Its tough to nail down as there are so many options in 2019. Most of the info on the encyclopedia, merkurxr4ti.com, mc2, merkurtech is a little dated, but still pretty good. 75% is still sound advice today. The other 25% is simply outdated as "better ways" have come along long since the [insert webs...

Re: Tachometer Repair

A thought. You/your father now have a Scorpio I think. If that Scorp's tach seems to work okay, try swapping the coil from it into the XR and observe that tach's operation. YMMV Ed, do you think think the V6 coil might make up for the 1/3 difference in the tach reading? Since the V6 has two more cy...

Like the Saab 9000 one, but about a third of the price.
Also direct bolt in to any XR / Scorpio.

Re: Tachometer Repair

Sometimes you can see a really obvious crack in the one soldier joint on the back of the tach once you have the tach out of the cluster. Usually the red wire. Its a 30 second fix once you have the whole thing apart. Anglin has some nice pics detailing it here: http://forum.merkurclub.com/forum/viewt...

They will if you power them (using Scorpio seat harness).
My Scorpio seats are powered in the XR and they have more of a "lean forward" function vs. "fold forward" function of the stock XR seats.

I love the full power Scorpio seats in my XR, especially on long rides.
Scorpio front seats in an XR are fantastic.
(Only downside is they don't fold forward for rear passengers to get in.)
