Re: Whats "wrong" with the Modern Performance cam?

That "reference" sounds a lot like Nick's ad copy write-up rather than a true reference. I've driven a car with that cam, and it's definitely more peaky than a stock cam, as you should expect of any performance cam. If you don't mind that, fine, life is full of trade-offs. Bear in mind to...

Whats "wrong" with the Modern Performance cam?

So I have a Modern Performance cam, that was once a VERY desirable piece. Whats the deal with it now. I have one, that I dont need to sell, but have it offered up for a price or trade. From what I've gathered, the cam that I have is the same spec cam that helped produced 1000 HP 2.3T. Other referenc...

Finding my old Scorpio

Anyone on here from northeastern Virginia, that bought a blue Scorpio off of me about 3 years ago? I was in Delaware, and delivered it to a small town (forgot) in north eastern (mainland) Virginia. I would love to know how the car is doing, and possibly get it back, if you might be interested in sel...

Lower South Carolina/ Savannah, GA area Merk owners??

I moved here about a year and a half ago, and seems like I'm the only Merkur owner in this area, with the exception of an older retired fella, that only drive his once every blue moon. I would like to catch up, with, and hang out with other local owners....

Re: What oil to use

Very good info there, and once I find a Royal Purple dealer in my area, I might go that route. I'm a believer in not changing different oil types, and sticking to only 1 specific, but since I run my car hard, I need to know that its properly protected. Like I said, I've only ever run Motorcraft oil ...

What oil to use

I know this has been gone over before, and should be in the FAQ, but I cant find it; I use the always faithful, Motorcraft semi-synthetic 5W-30, and Motorcraft oil filter, but what is a good alternative; Budget alternative, up through the Royal Purple. Viscosity, weight, and all????

Re: Young merkur enthusiasts?

Got my first one at 21. I traded a 1978 Suburban for it. I've always wanted one when I was a kid. I saw one riding around, and loved it. Same with the Taurus SHO. I got the fever when I was probably in my single digit age.

Re: That XR4Ti is one dangerous car!

I get odd stares, and even rednecks in their big turbodiesels attempting to run me, LOL. I get bikes riding behind me alot, for a distance, and finally pass me with a thumbs-up. Also, at our local Sonic meet, the Honduh guys will stick to themselves, but always notice them talking about my car.....L...
