I want to see the Capri in the picture.
I was thinking it was a toyota, but capri does make more sense.

You guys have numbers off the intercooler?
Its the one from the turbo diesel isuzu box trucks. I got one from Mike a couple years back, but it's not installed yet.

Re: (used) Aluminum radiator & intercooler combo

That's cool, the intercooler should be bigger than the radiator, and also out front. And less like the 4 or 5 layer madness I see at pull a part on the vehicles missing the front bumper.

Re: New 2.3 EcoBoost would be great in a Scorpio...

Check out the youtube video where the guys sneak an ecoboost into the coyote drag event. They put the 5.0 badge on the side and zip tie the engine cover on top of the ecoboost (I don't recommend this). The tech guys looks under the hood and says yep everything seems to be in order. Pretty funny.

Re: Eaton Detroit Truetrac ?

Quaife (or just the honda lsd) would be good if your drag racing, not ideal when the inside tire touches the candycane. Seems like the actual Cosworth one would be ideal. It's expensive to import for us and our XRs, but you should be able to find one in the UK. Why couldn't they just have come with ...

Re: PCV tube blocked?

Some bolts go deep enough to get to an oil passage. Coat the threads with Indian Head Shellac. Hitting the rev limiter seems to push oil out of all kinds of places also.

Re: Sierra Camber plates or others on a xr4ti?

I like the welded washer idea. I don't think I would like the adjustable plates because I would be worried they would loosen up and move on me. I once had that big King nut on top of a strut strip off on me. I think a shop installed new front struts on the taurus and reused the old nut. Also NE Ohio...

Re: Scorpio Euro Headlight Wiring

Don't the lights found on cars from Germany and France aim over the one way, and the other euro lights aim in the opposite direction?

Re: Always fight photo ticket

Just ignore it? Won't they put the unpaid ticket info into the computer system? Then the bmv people won't give you the little sticker. I know people used to ignore out of state tickets (I realize they are signed in person) back in the day, but now the states are all tied together. Too many people di...

Always fight photo ticket

First off I didn't get a "cop in a box" ticket. But my Moms sister got two in the same week a few years back when they first appeared in the area. This applies to red light cams, speed cams, ez pass lane violations etc. If you decide to fight the ticket you may have to miss work, and waste a good de...

Did you do the full tune up procedure including spraying carb cleaner through the iacv until the run-off is clear?

Re: Best Smog Test Stories...I know you have them

Another option that may help some of you. Search downstream O2 sensor anti fouler, spacer, non fouler etc. You can use the cheap spark plug anti-fouler like this one https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums/attachments/c5-tech/48147995d1501528106-spark-plug-non-foulers-o2-simulators-not-needed-o2project...
