Re: New to forum Intro

I'm splitting your post off into its own thread. Two separate discussions about new members and their cars in the same thread is likely to get confusing, quickly. Also, could you elaborate on what "ReTimed 18°out" means? I have some concerns about that. Welcome to the forum! "ReTimed...

Re: EGR Removal

EGR is the exhaust, already burnt air mass in the cylinder.
Since it is already burnt, the oxygen content is much less than fresh air.
By mixing this in the cylinder, you're putting inert gas back in, less oxygen, less NOx.

Re: For Sale: XR Red Koni Struts - Newly Rebuilt by Koni

I agree those are a nice item. Especially when you consider the new Konis/Bilsteins you see online listed as "in stock" are actually not in stock at all. You will spend your money and then wait around only to be refunded. Always go with one of the vendors here or fellow members selling ex...

Re: XR tail lights, Merkur trans fluid

Curious if you can say how many containers it takes of these to fill the manual trans?
I'm at that point right now with a rebuild engine/trans that I am installing.
May be interested in some of the other stuff as well.

YMMV

Most likely need to remove the winter air and replace with summer air.

Re: XR Vs. Scorpio Front Sub-frame / K-member

I guess I have a question.
Do the front sway bar bushing and brackets that hold these bushings for the Scorpio the same as the XR ones?
I've got a Scorpio front bar, but somewhere in time I think one of the bushing brackets has gone missing.

Re: Alignment, rack, or strut issues???

If it was me, I would lift the front up, remove the wheels and torque everything where it should be.
Do you paint mark them? If not, I would...That makes it easier to inspect and see if they're moving any.
