  1. I drove it again today and it seems to be even worse then yesterday. I think I will get the Cat removed or hollowed. I dont think any shops are open on Sunday or I would be getting it done. I was going to Drive it to a car show today, but that is the way it goes. In regards to the Timing belt, I replace all belts and seals three years ago when I bought the car. I leaked oil everywhere as it sat for 5 years. I just installed my brand new in mopar packaging upper timing belt cover I bought on ebay this winter. You do not have, or know were to purchase the correct spark plug wire holders/seperators that mount to the valve cover. Thanks, Tom
  2. Alan, I drove the car again and it seemed to me that I was getting some "ODD" noise from the exhaust and the turbo came on about 1/2 throttle in 3rd gear a couple of times. It almost sounded plugged, and then wouldsond ok when the turbo was on. The funny thing is is that I am used to removing catalytic converters not replaceing them. This is the first car I own newer then 1969! I believe I will change the catalytic converter and I also need a new muffler. Any specific reccomendations for better performance? The last I bought was headers and glass packs for my 65 mustang! Thanks for the advice, I think I will get it replace early next week. The weather is just getting nice in Miichingan for Top down driving. Tom Stroud 1989 16V TC 1965 Mustang GT 1969 Lincoln Continental
  3. I got my 16V out of storage last week drove it over 300 miles and everything was great. I had great acceleration and performance, as I put a new upgraded BOV and stage 2 computer from RDI performance in last year. Today I drove my car and it feels like the Turbo is not doing anything at all. There seems to be no point where the turbo kicks in and acceleration is about 50% of what it was. It feels like driving a 2.2 Stick shift, not a turbo 16V. Everything appears OK, and I am not sure where to start trouble shooting. This is my first turbo engine so any guidance/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Tom Stroud 1989 16V

  9. I was there with my yellow 16V with the top down. I had my 2 year old son strapped in his car seat next to me, and no room for Mom. I was not fortunate enough to see any other TC's. Then it started to rain, this was only the second time it has seen rain since I have owned the car. It was still a good time, hopefully next year it will be sunny. I also took it to the Downriver and Telegraph cruise's.
