Agree, I have read that as well, prepared to get a set and take the chance, shouldn't be too bad I don't think.
I'll post up how it goes when I get it completed.

Thanks for that...It's a bummer there are no pictures there, sounds like that post has a lot of useful information.

Hmmm, it wouldn't for me earlier, this is the table of contents though, but I was able to get to the link that way.

Grommet free! http://www.sacsaabs.org/sacsaabs.org/misc/xr_anpcv.jpg New oil cap, too! I'm crossing my fingers this results in less or no leak... but really not counting on it. ;) It looks nicer, and is a good platform if I ever decide to put in a catch can. I'm looking, but not seeing what you're ...

Re: Transmission Mount

Agree, it is a little difficult to come up with a polyurethane solution for the trans mount. I've 3d printed quite a bit in polyurethane. For something like this it is better to 3d print a mold and then use pourable curing polyurethane to make the final part. You can modify Thunderbird motor mounts...

XR Engine mounts

Hi all, I am looking for information on XR engine mounts. I've used the search, and read some, but when your search has mount in the title, you get anything with mounts. I recall some using Thunderbird mounts and modifying them, some originals are still available. If you have any info on options and...

Re: New here

Best thing to do would be to get the shop/service manual for the vehicle, I'd say get the EVTM as well. By now, there are probably more manuals than cars available, so each car should have one. Fuel filter is inline, under the drivers side of the car, beneath rear seat.

Where are you located?

Re: Passenger tail light out

I tried tightening the harness connectors but no luck. Have you tried clipping a ground wire onto the lighting frame and then to the body? Usually would use the latch bolts which hold the hatch, but you could do a quick and dirty check by finding a ground and trying it. Do you have another lighting...

Re: Greetings & 8.8 IRS

You could also search cliffxr here and send him a PM...He is another that had an 8.8 in his XR which he just sold. He was selling off a bunch of parts, not sure if he may of had any for that configuration.

Re: Greetings & 8.8 IRS

While the Supra/Anembo diff choice seems most viable, I'm wondering if there are any 8.8 IRS options still out there? Seems David Godfrey is out of the game. Perhaps someone is sitting on one of these kits they might never use? Welcome to the forum. Please feel free to document your progress as lot...
