Re: Antifreeze

I can't remember the capacity of the factory XR setup, (anyone??) but generally, for the minimal investment in fluids, I try to remember to change mine every 2 years.
Brake fluid goes every year.

Any chance of finding an old HKS? Totally happy with my 2 stage EBC.

Re: Antifreeze

It's more important to ensure regular changes, than whatever you decide to put in it, IMHO.
Next to brake fluid, it's the most neglected fluid I see after 40+ years of working on motor vehicles.

Re: Oil leak

Still using the cheezy factory oil feed to the turbo? They can develop hairline cracks that open under higher rpm/oil pressure.
Same for the oil pressure sender, if that's still in play.

Re: I forgot all that T5 stuff.

Was it Motion Dynamics that also made a bushing?

Photobucket used to be great, but for the last few years....
Happily, there's alternatives, and Pee-Bucket will soon go the way of Myspace...

Re: Hello from a new member in Australia

I've shipped parts (a LONG time ago...) to a fellow XR4Ti owner on Australia...
Just to be clear, are you after a XR4Ti Bi-wing, or a set of RS500 wings?

Re: Duracool refrigerant

Legal here, as are a competitor or 2.
It's my "go to" before I decide whether the car is worth keeping or not as a "driver".
AC repair here is a racket.
