Re: $400 Key Fob???!!!

This looks like 87 bucks. There are some cheaper ones on Amazon but this one says oem. Also some refurbished ones about 60 bucks. You would have to have someone cut it but that shouldn't be that much. https://www.keylessentryremotefob.com/product-p/oem-8609-5b-ford-flex.htm?gclid=Cj0KCQjw3ZX4BRDmARI...

Re: $400 Key Fob???!!!

I got a whole shoebox full of fobs, and a bunch are 3 and 4 button Ford ones. If you give me the little fcc number on the fob I could see if any of these match. You could have a "utility key" made which is really cheap and has no chip inside. Then put the plane key on the ring with the button from s...

Re: If I want cruise control...

I remember driving West of Carlisle on I-70, in 1989 white and yellow SVP car. Those are some long gradual hills, but enough to get into boost a little so I can imagine you would run out of vacuum. I remember thinking it was weird (first turbo car) and worried about using up all my gas or overheatin...

Dash Speaker Pods

So here are some pics of the different setups for speakers in the XR. The middle year range with 4 inch speakers that stay vertical, and the late style 5x7 speakers that aim downward towards your ankles. Both seem to mount easily with the 3 screws in the same location. Guess the lower dash didn't ch...

Re: If I want cruise control...

The ball that is part of the mechanism actuating the throttle body should hold some vacuum for a while. Just like the ball over near the battery holds some vacuum for the hvac items that run off it. Like Matt said you would want a check valve in there. I understand it won't hold vacuum forever, but ...

Re: Ford Raptor Engine, Porsche PDK Trans, sign me up

Notice how this guy, who seems to know what's up, says he is running 205 width tires or possibly 215 width. Man I wish the XR came with 15x7 like his and not these 15x5.5 rims. Currently I have some 195/50/15 toyo extensa hp tires and like them pretty well.

Re: more off idle performance from a 2.3t

I also run my PE at 13 degrees instead of 10. 12 is nice since it starts easier and still feels fast, 14 works but too hard to get it to start. Try getting the car to run like a scared rabbit with wastegate unhooked. Then add boost on top of that. Maybe you have a different cam from a previous owner...

Re: New Radio for xr4ti

I found these older Polk 4 inch speakers at pull a part and planned to use them. Previous owner used a hot glue gun to install them I guess. The only problem is they are not round like the ford ones, so they don't fit real well. The rear sound wave will cancel out the front sound wave basically. You...

New Radio for xr4ti

When I got this car it had both stock front speakers (4 inch 2 way speakers) hooked up to an Acura tape deck that was stuck on am. Lame. I popped in a pull a part pioneer super tuner real quick powering those same two speakers. People at work were very surprised at how loud it was, you could hear it...
