End of an era. The condition of those IMON stickers on the rear glass from <1999 are a pretty good indication this has been kept in a time capsule garage for quite some time. (My IMON stickers from way back then turned into plain silver after about 4 years.)

Re: XR vs. Scorpio Inner Tie Rods

I think this was just recently moved to the FAQ. My original post date shown is from 2012, so I don't have these sitting in front of me to measure right now. However, fast forward 7 years and I have new inner and outer tie rods available for the Scorpio ( and XR4Ti ).

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 The other 25% is simply outdated as "better ways" have come along long since the [insert webs...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...

Sneak peek...

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