Well yes and no. The first problem is that the filter has a 3'' outlet and the VAM is something like 2.5'' or so, so i'd have to find the right size reducing coupler to make it fit.
Or a big VAM...

I'm happy with what I have, and it would appear(from looking around town) that a bigger garage could be in my future. Just need to finance it somehow...

I guess I missed that part. But in my defense there are pieces that folks are overlooking or tossing that are "obvious" but never pulled from the yard, or junk cars. And I have NEVER been able to find one of those Mazda or nissan check valves at the auto parts stores, incuding NAPA. I always get a b...

I agree with Brad I don't think it's the PCM either! As was stated you can get a used PCM at the local junk yard for $20-$40.

Maybe in Kurplunkistan, but here in CO I have paid upwards of $100.00 for one. And almost all the yards around here want a minimum of $100.0 for ECMs.

I always guessed they put them in there because the single wing was less effective at controlling such things than the biwing. Probably because the biwing did a fantastic job of keeping rain from landing on the rear window at 50+MPH, and the single wing didn't. Hell the Scorpio does a great job kee...

I seem to recall Graham Robsons The Sporting Fords Vol 4 as saying that the Cossies were .34. I'm gonna have to spend more time in the book again, beacuse I can't find the page in 30secs. I don't think he specifed which Cossie(RS or RS500). But pne of my brouhcures for the XR states it has a .33CD.

Keep dreaming. Try 14x5.

Odd that they're laying out in front of the car like that though... :?
Stamping on the wheels say 5.5Jx14x41. It seems to indicate a 5.5" wheel. Or am I reading it wrong. I'll take a pic later.

Every relay from the fuse panel. And any relay that has the same specs from other Fords. They are $25.00 a pop new, and sometimes hard to find. Also TFIs, 2.3L dizzies, CFI injectors(for possible E-85 conversions, or injector upgrade), all the switches for Merkurs, and basicly any Merkur specific pa...

Code 10 during KOER test means mash throttle to floor for TPS check. The comp must see WOT. If not TPS is either misadjusted, or needs replace.
