Hey guys, I need to know what the width of the rear end from a Fox Mustang is, backing plate to backing plate. I can get an 8.8 nearly free and I want to put it under my '64 Falcon--and yes I know I ...

We were at $1996 before I bought the replacement rubber items. Scott had 2nd degree burns on his torso and neck and 3rd degree burns on his arm. My wife and 2 year old came to see the car about 5 min...

My friend Scott and I were tuning the motor in the Grassroots Challenge car today when the upper radiator hose burst and scalded him pretty good across the left side of his upper body. The hose was a...

It is 12mm (don't know the pitch) into the exhaust elbow and 7/16"-14 on the stud end. Ford was really into this mix-match SAE/metric stuff in the 80's. Part number's are: N 800064-S2 or (Ford) AW-36...

Kevin, that is exactly what I needed to know. Thanks. Mike :worshippy:

When you mount a battery in the trunk (rear) portion of a hatchback (in this case a gutted XR) do you have to use a case or box? I know the Summit and Jegs kits come with boxes but is it required acc...

Huh--Jegs, Summit, PAW or just about anyplace else...The 8" is very, very common and easy to get parts for.

I believe they are 7/16"-14. They take a 5/8" socket.

Drum brakes actually stop a car (or truck) better the FIRST time they are used simply because there is more friction area (this is comparing stock type sustems--of course there are huge disc brakes th...

He is auto-xing (Solo II) not road course racing. Even in Solo I time trials there are no other cars on the course. There is no need to pass anyone, he is the only one on the track. It is vitally im...

OK I will probably get trashed for saying this but for an auto-x car an IHI turbo from an '87-'88 Turbocoupe would be better. Very fast spool-up and better throttle response. I auto-x an XR4Ti so I ...

Amesoil literature specifically warns NOT to break in a fresh motor with synthetic oil. Amesoil claims that it can take a motor as much as 100K to "break-in" with synthetic! As far as the GM and BMW...

Galen and Hal--thanks for clearing that up. Do you keep the stock Merkur spider gears? That is the part I keep breaking!

I know Corvettes have an IRS :rolleyes: but it is not readily available cheap, it uses universal joints not CV joints nor is it a 7.5" Basically it is completely different from what we are talking a...

Galen, I have heard about that swap for a long time but have never seen one or heard of anyone that has done it. What GM cars have IRS and are readily available?

No offense taken. The 8.8 I was refering to was the center diff from a Thunderbird SC. They had IRS and 8.8s. The expensive/PITA part is the half-shafts but you get a bullit proof rear end and keep...

I agree completely with the "too many Mustangs" concept. All I'm saying is that you will ruin one of the best attribute's of the XR if you remove the IRS. The only real solutions for high horsepower...

A solid axle is much worse as far as handleing goes on anything other than a completely flat surface. An XR4Ti will never be a GREAT drag race car unless a solid axle is installed. In my opinion why ...

My '86 XR made 202.5 RWHP and 243.4 lb/ft in 95+ degree temps with the following mods: OverBoosted 3" exhaust, Volvo intercooler, rotated and gutted upper intake, Gilis valve set @ 20 psi, big VAM. T...

Were still here but I don't want to go crazy on an Alfa link on a turbo Ford site! If you have any questions feel free to email me, I have a few Duetto parts left over--even a vintage early '70's Har...
