Anybody have an 89 XR4Ti near Orange, Ca

Post by Rat Rally » Tue Jan 17, 2017 8:12 pm

I am trying to get our car running and really need to look at another car!

We are working on an 89 XR4Ti.

Mods so far:
LA3 engine control
3" exhaust
New / refurbished cylinder head
Cylinder head ported and polished, and installed larger valves (I dont have the specs)
Roller lifters and rockers
Custom Crower cam grind on factory Ranger cam
70MM Throttle body
Ported lower intake
Upper intake opened up to large single runner

Need to look at the cooling system and a few wiring issue and this car could run!

Anybody local please call or text 714-742-nine-six-zero-six

Ever get this thing running? I've got an 89, but the cooling system has been.. modified to use the 85-88 radiator.
