Re: Rarest of Rarest XR4Ti

The above numbers are best estimates from magazine articles I have been able to find. I can't find very much on the Exposure or Bondurant cars. If anyone knows more about them feel free to chime in.

Re: Where the heck are you guys buying air filters? (stock airbox)

Re: Knock Sensors, Again

I have always been told to disconnect the knock sensor when you have an intercooler. Yes I know the intercooled Thunderbird and SVO had a knock sensor, and that the Rapido instructions don't say to disconnect the knock sensor. Those instructions mention moving it to the SVO's location. That seems li...
