Re: Rebuilding an XR4TI

With winter approaching in SE Michigan, I figured this thread needed a update.... Last winter I made the decision to swap the boring old open diff to a 4.30 Supra LSD unit. The following pictures are when I bought the diff (dissembled), assembled the diff and the fabrication of custom CV/Half-shaft ...

Re: Rebuilding an XR4TI

Far be it from me to ever suggest that a person could ever learn anything from any body elses' experience but when Ford was using this car they said the best placement of the fuel cell was between the rear shock towers and directly over the diff....the claimed that in that position it had the benef...

Re: Rebuilding an XR4TI

Looking good! :cheers Thanks, Mike! :cheers I agree with your dad about the bend in the hose from fuel filter to.pump...unless it's a pre-formed hose, it's likely to constrict flow and also crack earlier thsn expected. For short runs like that, use double that length curled in the middle so tension...

Re: High School Drift Build

Alright.... I guess its time for me to up date this build thread. So about in the middle of the summer (July-ish) I decided to go on a painting/body work spree. Since I did have a fair amount of rust on the passenger side rear quarter panel as well on the rear hatch area where the tail lights are. A...

Re: "Ray's AKA demonfire's XR4Ti build up"

Hey Ray, any updates on how the V6 t5 swap went? I'm kicking around doing the exact same swap this next winter, and haven't decided weither I want to use the spacer technique since there a debate on weither or not the input shaft is hardened.

Re: Rebuilding an XR4TI

Or ditch the stock valve cover and get a stamped sheet metal one from an early 80s n/a 2.3. Painted black it looks nice (in my opinion, much nicer), and you never have to worry about over tightening and damaging the aluminum one again. I went through two stock valve covers before I went that route....

Re: Rebuilding an XR4TI

Update! Alright, so the car had its first start up about a month ago (April 15th). When I first got the car running it was blowing blue smoke like crazy..... Now I know a little blue smoking in the beginning is normal but it just kept smoking, so i ended up tracing the problem back to the turbo... I...
