Re: Another header post

Poor quality materials, the SS header is the same as the EBay header and all the other $100 headers. Randy Heinlen makes a nice one, others make nice ones as well, the going rate is around $550 or so give or take... Thanks! Sorta figured it was from cheaper materials. Thanks for the Heinlen name-dr...

Re: Did you like the Wheeler Dealers XR episode?

The 'Rapido' reference that Brewer made was not Russ Harness's company. The word 'rapido', in several languages, is an adverb having to do with 'speed/fast/quickly/rapidly'.

Re: Another header post

All things being equal, perhaps... hard to say for sure. But if you think about it, an exhaust system only moves a little, but there's a hell of a lot of leverage to be had from a metal pipe that long..! John, agreed. Even Boport says " We do however recommend the use of a flex joint and bracing of...

Re: Another header post

If you are going with a header, be sure to utilize a flex pipe portion in your downpipe to take most of the load off your header welds. Thanks for the info John, I wonder if that's where the cracking is typically coming from? In other words XS (or one like it) might be a 'decent' header but without...

They will crack in short order.
Yeah, that's kinda what I gathered. Some older posts referred to 'Ebay headers' and I figured they were referring to stuff like these.

Another header post

I've browsed some header posts, and most of them seem to be a few years old. So...…...I'm wondering about the SS headers by XS Power. Wondering if anyone has bought one / used one / or something similar and if they're worth a crap. They list a couple of them on their site: http://xs-power.com/ford-t...

Re: XR featured on Wheelers Dealers this season

I just watched it on YouTube, if it's the same one. It's an '85 model / white / no sunroof / velour interior. Kind of disappointing. They didn't do much to the car at all. It was a relatively clean car to begin with. It had a Cossie grill and an intercooler. They scrapped the intercooler, put in som...

WTB - Xr4Ti windshield wiper arm / with aerofoil

Looking for one of the earlier (factory) windshield wiper arms that had the blade/aerofoil on it. I believe only the drivers side had them?

Thanks in advance,

Re: WTB - OEM/Factory Xr4Ti jack and lug wrench

You could probably get one cheap, aka free with a little rust on it...clean the paint off of it and then repaint it. Same for the lug wrench...I've got both if you want to go this route, just pay shipping. I think I have a few of the rubber straps as well. That would be great. From what I remember,...
