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...

Re: The 200mph Merkur

Is there a link for the TurboFord story? I want to follow that.

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 ...

I also just added a set of solid aluminum rear beam bushings to the 'for sale' pile.

Re: Long Distance Purchase XR4Ti

Why not just buy one from one of the guys on this forum? Or even the FB page? Most guys in this little group are pretty honest about cars they're selling. (Because if they get a reputation for lying...it's a small Merkur world.)
