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.

Great. Another mod. What's the advantage of the Scorpio column?

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...

Re: Best Front Brake Setup for 14-inch Wheels?

As the guys said, stock XR rotors with Greenstuff pads worked pretty well on my XR for a long time. Would be better on your lil Capri. Not sure where you're located but, I have a complete front brake setup with vented rotors and "unknown" pads. Almost new. Came off a rolled-over car I bought. I have...

Will do. Still waiting on some caliper mount brackets. I bought some ebay calipers that showed the brackets and hardware in the auctions he had but then saw fit to not include them in the shipment. Lol.

Re: Focus Brake Mounting

I have 278mm Contour rotors. Will these work with this setup? This mod requires this "kit", a set of hoses and some 12+ Focus calipers to work? Works well with my OE (87-up) master cylinder? Where do I send my money for your kit? (Edit: I just ordered a pair of used Focus calipers so I'm going this ...

Re: More Carlisle parts sale, Focus SVT wheels, door cards, Big brake spare tire

Got the spare in the trunk and chucked the old one. Another step close to big brakes on the front. Thanks for a great transaction! FYI, if you need a place to stay even if you can't get a room, most guys have space and are happy to split their room. (Sometimes 4-5 guys stay in the same room to save ...
