2.3t for 5.0w swap. Anyone interested?

It seems I can't let go of doing another 5.0/XR swap. I have a ~75k mile 87 XR with some "ok" engine mods. (Bolt-ons...IC, PE computer, 3" mandrel bent Stinger exhaust...) Also have the T9 and short throw shifter. I'd like to find a 5.0/T5 from a Foxbody that's in similar condition. With harness/com...

Re: Light scraping/grinding noise, not speed proportional

See if you can get it up on a lift, running, in gear and see if a mechanics stethoscope can isolate the sound. Noises from these drivelines are not normal. Could be the CSB, as well. Btw, just because a part "looks new and feels tight" doesn't mean it's not at fault. Best bet: Switch to a manual tra...

Re: XR featured on Wheelers Dealers this season

I love this show! Gonna be interesting to see what road they take on the XR. That said, who gets sort of tweaked that no matter what they do or how much they make, they NEVER consider the price of the labor hours involved in repairing/modding a car? I kind of "justify" it by believing that they are ...

Here's the description from the Jeg's website. Says 10-bolt from '75-'89.

Re: Eaton LSD

Well, it's funny that you would ask that question. I did want the TrueTrac. When I ordered, Chris thought I wanted the clutch type so that's what he sent. Being that I was on the fence about which one to get, I decided to keep the clutch type. We'll see how that works for me. If I don't like it, I c...

And you'll actually save money because the C3 and T5 use the same speedo cable.

Re: WTB 7.5 Bearings and Seals

It should be the same as our own non-LSD 7.5" stuff. I bought new ones for one that I thought was LSD. It wasn't. So I have the pinion seal, the side seals and the rubber orings for the adjusters. I'd sell them for $40, shipped. I got them from Jeff at MPM just a week or two ago.

Dumb question: Will anyone please share the part number for the correct diff for our application? For posterity?

Re: Post-Carlisle Survey - Your Input is Needed!!!

1) I certainly did! 2) ‘Bout the same. 3) The Radisson is a Merkur/Carlisle tradition! 4) If I’m honest, this food truck is just “ok”. There have to be better ones available. (There’s no going wrong with brisket/pulled pork. Although TexMex should have been a winner, too.) 5) The T-shirt is cool! 6)...

Re: WTB 7.5 Bearings and Seals

Well, I am also asking around for info and no one seems to have any. I have this diff, as well. Needs the o-rings replaced, which I have. I'm told if the seals aren't leaking and the bearings aren't howling to not worry about it. The "source" for info seems to be Chris Grayson at MC2Racing. He could...

Re: Comprehensive Upgrade List for XR?

From "bone stock" and all required maintenance items (coolant/hoses, timing belt, brakes, etc) addressed, I would start with a 3" exhaust system. Bang for the buck, this does more to wake these cars up more than any other mod. (You'll spend $200-$300 or so on a decent used one. As much as $500, new)...

Re: 88/89 XR4 master cylinder

I have one on my shelf (not for sale) that NAPA rebuilt for me. Check with your local NAPA and see if they'll rebuild yours. It will take a little while but at least you have some recourse.

Re: LA3 question

The 190hp '87/'88 TurboCoupes were intercooled... that's where the power came from. :) You're not gonna see any useful increase with just the ECM. Drivability and probably emissions? Sure. But not power. Actually, those were just about the worst intercoolers ever devised. Sitting right over the hot...
