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

Just like I remembered it! 3. Don't remember where we stayed in '04 and '05, but that was nice-- offered in re other comments here on the current venue. Hotel Carlisle. Take a look at this video (or just a portion of it) and you may want to rescind your recommendation. :mrgreen: https://youtu.be/zDn...

Re: XR4 Targa

I'm glad it didn't make it here and water down the brand anymore! That said, some people will buy anything ie the Aussie Capri, and some people will make anything ie Brad and his Brat!, and Martin w/ the yellow chop top XR.

Re: Type 9 (T9) Short Shifter Options

No. 2: The link you have there appears to be the same, or similar to the "Comp" shifter I got from BAT years ago (I believe it's what Burton Power sells/sold and is from Quaife). If this is the same, this is one of the best modifications I ever made to my car (I replaced the shift rail nylon bushing...

Re: 1997 Mercury Mountaineer AWD_ Notchy Power Steering

It’s a spare vehicle, so it hasn’t went very far. I guess I’ll have to go out some miles on it.

Re: Outdoor Car Cover

They keep adding to the 172-41046; I bought the last one the other day, and wanted a 2nd and settled on a lesser quality one for use in my garage......dammit.

Re: Outdoor Car Cover

Wolf is what Rapido sells (or at least did several yrs ago), and these are a fraction of Russ' price (I'd typically say support our vendors, but the difference is about $290).

1997 Mercury Mountaineer AWD_ Notchy Power Steering

My belt tensioner's bearing failed and caused the serpentine belt to be destroyed. After I left the shop the steering was VERY notchy. They stated that this was normal for Fords after running w/ the belt off, and would self correct. Does this sound correct?

Re: T-5 Swap - what handle?

My handle is mounted the same way, I couldn't remember how it was off the top of my head. I have a pro 5.0 shifter and purchased the Steeda Tri ax handle separately: https://www.steeda.com/steeda-triax-mustang-shifter-handle-555-7153.html The general idea is that it moves the shift knob back a bit s...

Re: LA3 question

I did an LA3 years ago w/ Big VAM, ACT & MP IC, full 3", CAI, on a slightly modded head/block= Great improvement on the butt dyno; Then I swapped to a PE and that= DAMN! My butt dyno says the swap is well worth it. Last year I installed an 8UA and big VAM in my otherwise stock automatic (cold air in...

Re: XR4Ti Manual Links

Ive spent hundreds to have original documents. Don't know where your $15 remark came from. $15.00 is not significant, also there is plenty of other literature on the CD that is well worth the cost. This is in no way a shot at MC2racing, if at all I hope it solves a lot of questions before they get a...

Re: Virginia emissions and other off the wall questions

True, and true again. If he goes through inspection w/o it, and it's noticed it would fail. However, w/ antique plates, unless you are doing something stupid---- you should be safe. And, as I've actually did going through inspections in the past- when they were trying to fail me for illegal parts, e...

Re: Virginia emissions and other off the wall questions

If you leave the NOVA area, slightly west (and probably other areas), there are NO emissions in this area of VA. Also, w/ antique plates, you don't have to do State inspections. edit, already posted :cheers
