That is some really interesting and awesome information regarding the early 85 injector info Probably safe to assume there are only 10 or fewer of that original 42 left.
One key thing is to heat the manifold up before welding and let it cool as long and slow as you possibly can. Last time I welded my manifold that had cracked there I put it in the oven (the baking oven in our house) at 350* for about 15 minutes, took it out, used my mig welder with just standard flu...
Of the 9 Xr's I've ever owned, the water cooling lines to the turbo are the first to go when removing that POS heater control valve. Most aftermarket turbos don't have water-cooled jackets neither. Go for it, you shouldn't see any ill effects other than maybe burning more tires off with the upgrade ...
Verified cam timing is correct? Spout plugged in secure? Correct firing order? Set base idle correctly? Verified ignition timing? Not jumping on you here! That's just the order of things that I usually ask myself and/or check if I'm having an issue. If all of those check out, look for a vacuum leak,...
Theres honestly way too many variables to say for sure, but, if you have a good one and you are very nice to it, it should handle 250- 275 fairly well behind our xr's. Now, a lot of mg and lotus guys like the t9 for their setups, but those things easily weigh 500-1000lbs less than our xr's!
You could run that intercooler with the stock radiator, however, you will have to flip the intercooler upside down so the outlets are on the bottom. I actually ran mine like that initially, but it's a lot of piping. I ended up having to get a new radiator so I went with a saab unit (cools better tha...
I ran about 22 psi through mine without much issue, the car only made 265 rwhp with that setup though due to a leaking upper intake(long story there). I would say they are pretty efficient up to about 300 crank hp, beyond that they definitely become a restriction. Let me see if I can find some pics ...

I know there's a lot of PNW guys around, just thought I'd let you all know that the hot streak ends tomorrow! Wilson better watch out for Weatherspoon.....he loves to hunt down and lay out QB's that like to scramble!
If you're feeling it on acceleration and decel, the u-joints are probably bad. Also, you need to make sure the driveshaft is balanced and aligned properly after install. I'm assuming you have the 460 adapter for the Mustang driveshaft? Unfortunately, most people never fully get rid of the vibration ...
Last time I went with my last xr, I ended up destroying my motor and trans mounts on the launch. Didn't have my tune down as well as I though so I let off around or near the 1/8th. Mods were bob log, mild head work (short radius, unshrouded valves and 3 angle valve job), volvo fmic and around 21 psi...

3 jaw puller should work, you might need to pull on it from the back of the plastic piece. I believe that's how I got my last one off, it's been a few years since then, however.
Thanks adam and jeremy, I've already found a couple things I wasn't sure about! One thing for you Jeremy, I'd make another post.....like now, that 666 post count is an extremely bad omen!
