Re: OBDII Engine Swap?

I think someones done a 4.6L swap, but don't quote me. I do know that the XR/Scorpio are old enough that there isn't anything(that I am aware of) that non-drivetrain related that is controlled by the EEC-IV. Those 2 cars just weren't that advanced. What are thinking of for a donor? If you check out ...

Re: Eliminating/Disabling ABS & Accumulator Issue?

Thanks much, Bob. CA restrictions on what you can and cannot swap are tight. I've rebuilt this 2.9L, with WP upgraded heads, and it runs very smooth for a V6, but the only way I'd keep it for "performance" is if I can build a bulletproof A4. But I have no skills w/ automatics, and I think that even...

Re: Photobucket 3rd party???

We've been having this discussion on my model train forum for a few days now. There seems to be no rhyme or reason. It almost seems like it could be a ransomware attack, or they are just being really flaky about who they target. I only use PB for posting photos to forums, so it's no loss for me. I h...

Re: Little project on the XR

Swapped in an EEC to match. There's a write up here somewhere that someone else did.

Do you know what happened at the right rear, by the taillight? It doesn't look like it got fixed properly. Hows the trans shift?

Re: Trade my rapido exhaust (+$ if need be) for a turbo back

I may be interested. Hit me up with a PM, I'm in Longmont. You'd wanna get a muffler to put into the system I have though, as it is 3" turbo to tail, with nothing but the cat to muffle the sound :headbang

Re: Looking for a good transmission shop in Oregon

The only reason to keep the C3 is if you wanna maintain a stone stock condition for concours shows. Elsewise yer better off with a manual. If you have to have an auto, find a really good reputable shop(read: not Aamco) and have them build it up right with all the upgrades: http://www.explorerforum.c...
