Re: Original owner since '86 planning updates...

I would still have my Scorpio if it had a manual gearbox instead of that POS A4ld. If you are going to do all this work consider upgrading to a T-5!

Re: Airbox Alternatives?

You could do what I and many other have done. Remove the stock air box, and pipe the intake through the sheet metal into the space in front of the wheel well - there is room there for a good sized K&N type cone filter. Works great and sounds good too!

Re: Some brake upgrade questions for weekend driver

When I first purchased my '86 XR I thought that it seemed to stop on its "nose" since then I've made a few mods to improve braking, but the first was the most significant and one that I would recommend for all! Here are my mods: 1. Upgrade the rear brakes to discs and bypass or gut the proportioning...

Re: WTB: T5 for XR

Tim, I always thought that with the T-9, First gear was to short and third gear too long. It seems that the 2.95 1st would be more driveable bringing all gears closer together and improving the transition from 1st to 2nd
