Re: whos car is this?

i just saw the bottom of the 1st post about the exterior mod list. that's really pretty simple.

rob booth front bumper
rob booth arches
rob booth grille
chevy silverado headlights
polished tail lights
saab 9000 spoiler
and i believe 8" wheels up front and 9" in the back.

Re: whos car is this?

sadly that car is no more!

the sealer was flawed and the paint ripped off in big sheets. rob then stripped the whole car down to the bare shell and i believe it still sits that way now since he found another shell to play with.

Re: XR4TI's with Jetta Bumpers?

Re: Looking for 4.6 32V Mod motor into XR4ti info.

i'd say the best place to start would be to contact jim deberry. him and chris crawled all over a stock xr8 taking measurements and his stuff is the best. not cheap, but the best. he can tell you all about putting a 4.6 in an xr. demitri also can give you bunches of info. rob booth can give you almo...

Re: The 200mph Merkur

if this is the wing you are talking about, then yeah it is just coincidence. this one was imported from europe to trade to nick for the original moonstone blue wing from my cossie. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Ford-Sierra-Cosworth-rear-spoiler-Merkur-XR4Ti-/190728098901?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_...

says the guy who grafted a grand prix nose to his xr.

i don't like it. the front doesn't match the style of the rest of the car.

sort of like putting a mk4 supra wing on the back of a 84 nissan stanza.

Re: fuel level gauge problem

you would be 100% correct on hat assumption. that plastic spacer breaks the circuit to send the signal to the slosh board and then allows the slosh board to send the signal on to the gauge. if you leave it there, it will definitely keep the circuit open and the gauge will always read empty.

Re: Ecu question

ok, i will try the same thing on my car and see what happens. i'm wondering if it is something inherent to the t-bird ecus that they simply function the egr differently than the stock ecu, since you said both your t-bird ecus don't work the egr , but your stock ecu does. i have an 8ua and a la2 here...

Re: Ecu question

ok, looking at the pinouts between the two ecus, the xr uses pin 35 for the egr shut off and the t-bird uses pin 33. these are two pins that i swap, so i don't know why your egr isn't working. can you describe a bit better just how you can feel and see it so i can try and replicate the symptoms n my...
