I have not been here or posted on the site for a while. So I sold one Cougar(73 XR7 Q code convertible) and bought a 89 XR7 with the factory 3.8 and a Eaton supercharger sitting on top of it. It needs some work, doesn't idle very well. Once the engine hits about 1000-1200 rpm the engine smooths out. The body is ok, could use a repaint, grill and few other odds and ends. The interior is pretty descent shape, it needs some speaker covers and a new power antenna switch.

I have it up and going, runs pretty good, been driving it for a month now. I had to replace the whole ignition system, the DIS, cam position sensor, crank position sensor and coil pack. The car has a real bad oil leak out of the valve cover need to replace them. I figure I will change the plugs and wires on it at the same time since they are very hard to get to. Since I will have half the engine removed to get to the valve covers I figure I should do the plugs at the same time.

These little SC 3.8 cars are pretty quick, but my 73 Mustang would still hand its azz to it in a race,lol.

I had a 1993 for 12 yrs 95-07 it was an XR7 3.8 v6 it was a great car, body rot on the rocker panels killed it. I had to sell it.
