My XR4i and Capri
« on: August 20, 2008, 21:02:46 PM »
The capri i've had for 13yrs but the sierra is a recent addition   Sooo much smoother in town driving and a hell of alot better fuel consumption    bought from a very nice guy who spent loads of £££££££££'s on it, it now sports a bored/stroked 3.2lt with stage2 heads, spax lowered shox and a cossie 3 door interior.

I want to put power steering on it as this one didn't come with it, so if anybody has the parts laying about or knows where i might be able to get them please let me know

think youl find the granada wrack is the same but youl need the xr4i track rod ends on it, p/s pump from the early xr4x4 will complete the system,

p.s ijust love white with coded bumpers n plastics, looks cool.. gonna spray the bonnet white?

Well as and when i get the bits together the P/S will get done   as for the bonnet i'll probably leave it black for now cos if i get it painted white i'll need to get the wing tops blended in as well as white is a bugger to match

Hi, well despite the weather i took the capri to fordfair and had a hoon around the track  
so you could of looked at the interior   mind you it needed a bloody good wash when i got home (the car that is not the interior   )

Yes the sierra is quite spritely, very good low down grunt but the power tails off around 5k    but it still has the standard exhaust fitted at the moment, ive got some janspeed manifolds and a ashley system to fit when i get the time hopefully that should let it breath better up top end
