  1. I know you're not one to chat/blabber about things, so you have proven data to support this I guess?
  2. http://www.ebay.com/itm/84-85-86-87-87-JAGUAR-XJ6-AIR-CLEANER-/252541506536?hash=item3acca593e8:g:q88AAOSwKfVXEbdc&vxp=mtr http://www.ebay.com/itm/1986-Jaguar-XJ6-Air-Cleaner-Assembly-used-/140490543288?hash=item20b5e390b8:m:mpUV3A-N40MD4fxw409qTow&vxp=mtr http://www.ebay.com/itm/84-85-86-87-87-JAGUAR-XJ6-AIR-CLEANER-ASSEMBLY-OEM-ACS-/322258483814?hash=item4b081a3a66:g:o64AAOSw~oFXD6y7&vxp=mtr
  3. Mid 80's XJ6. Quick search shows a few on ebay now.
  4. I like that look also! Could always use the Jag CAI. I used a smaller battery, but turning the battery sideways works too...
  5. Kind of bittersweet, but the car is SOLD!
  6. I know his mom would rather see him in something a little bigger but he did the research, drove them both, and said the Fiesta's handling is what sold him. Barely enough room for his ice hockey equipment though!
  7. What shop is doing the work?
  8. If you're talking about the mounting tabs, no they are not broken. The dash is solid. if you look at the picture that shows the dash, you can see that a section of the woodgrain is missing above the instrument cluster. Actually not in a bad spot since the steering wheel hides it for the most part. There are cracks in the plastic section along the lower part of the windshield, but that is fairly common in most of the 850's that I see.
  9. Yes, the BBS come with the car! Was offering to swap the Volans from my car if you wanted wheels without any rash...
  10. Some on each wheel but not hateful. I'd say from about 5 ft away it's not even noticeable. I'd also be willing to swap the reconditioned Volans (zero rash) off of my S70 onto this car. They are dipped black but that could easily be stripped off...
  11. Up for sale is my son's 1995 850 turbo wagon. Lot's of time and money have gone into this car, but he's decided to buy a new car. He's been driving it for the last 6 years, but the real fun started when he graduated from college 3 years ago. Instead of getting a newer used car as a graduation gift, he decided he would rather keep his car with a few "upgrades". Odometer shows 210k but there isn't much that hasn't been replaced on this car. Here is a list of mods and a few pics. Thanks for looking... 5sp manual trans single mass flywheel and R clutch IPD lowering springs front and rear IPD sways front and rear Koni STR.T front and rear 302mm front brakes handbrake cables and e-brake shoes replaced BBS SR 18x8 wheels Continental Extreme Contact 215/40/18 JVC KW-V200BT double din DVD Alpine type R 12" sub Kenwood amp for sub Rockford Fosgate amp for door speakers Alpine type S 5.25" door speakers RN 2.3l motor from 2001 S60 T5 bored to 81.5mm Wiseco pistons H-beam rods balanced rotating assy. rebuilt head R exhaust manifold K24 turbo green injectors FMIC with 2.5" piping Gizzmo IBC-R boost controller Coolingmist progressive WMI ARD tune SNABB intake pipe HID headlights 6000k Innovate wideband Innovate boost gauge OBX exhaust with high flow cat
  12. Pocket screwdriver, very high tech and highly accurate! lol
  13. Google "printable cam degree wheel". I printed it and attached it to an old paint can lid. With a degree wheel and a dial indicator you can check the cams lift and duration.
  14. Problem is, the cam specs aren't readily available for the various cams. The only way to be sure would be to measure them both.
