Rapido XR4Ti Air-to-Air Intercooler....07-0102This is Rapido's XR4Ti Air-to-Air Intercooler for all model years.It features maximum reduction in Charge Air Temperature for both XR4Ti stick shift and automatic. "Turbo lag" is reduced via the bypass valve incorporated into this super efficient intercooler system design. Legal in all 50 states including California (CARB EO D-140-25). Installation by professional mechanic takes approximately 2 hours. The mechanically minded "do-it-yourselfer" should be able to install it in 3 hours. Detailed installation instructions are included. Spend your money wisely the first time - order the Rapido XR4Ti Intercooler!
SUSPENSION MODSSuspension upgrades and modifications are popular items with most automobile enthusiasts. We feel it is unacceptable to throw comfort out of the window for "pure" handling, unless your vehicle spends its highway miles on a trailer going to and from competition events. With this in mind, and a wealth of personal knowledge and experience, we offer a variety of suspension components as well as complete suspension kits. Now be advised that anytime you lower a vehicle with "semi-trailing arm rear suspension" (i.e. XR4Ti and Scorpio), the rear suspension will go out of alignment (both camber and toe). These are "nonadjustable" from the factory. The result of lowering these vehicles would normally be less than optimum handling, and a severe reduction in rear tire mileage (as much as 70%). In every lowering kit we supply, Rapido provides the necessary components and installation instructions to realign the rear suspension. This is a Rapido exclusive and part of the Rapido lowering kit. Here are a couple of things for you to consider as you contemplate up- grading the handling of your favorite vehicle.
- 1. Do I want to lower the vehicle - can I afford to reduce ground clearance?
- 2. Will I retain stock wheels and tires?
Rapido/Koni XR4Ti Complete Handling Kit... 05-0107/A*Lowers Vehicle 1 3/4" (plus/minus 1/8) from "stock/new ride height". The kit includes front and rear springs, heavy duty valve front struts and rear shocks complete with Rapido's rear alignment kit. This kit also includes 28.5 x 19 mm anti roll bars for superb handling characteristics and complete installation instructions. (*)Also available with KYB and Boge shocks - Inquire.
XR4Ti Exhaust System....07-0101Here it is, the Borla Dual Outlet Stainless Steel Performance Exhaust System for the XR4Ti. Our Rapido/Borla stainless steel, dual outlet exhaust system frees trapped horsepower. It is legal in all states, has a distinctive appearance and a "purrs like a kitten" sound. The actual rear wheel horsepower gain is as much as 20 HP. Turbo boost comes up about 300 RPM sooner than with the stock exhaust system. There is no increase in noise level and it has a lifetime warranty. Installation time is about 1 1/2 hour. In addition we also offer our single outlet Exhaust System (catalyst back) for the XR4Ti(P/N 07-0101S) and for the Scorpio 07-0101B. Replace a rotting factory exhaust system and enhance performance (as much as 10HP) for about the same cost as the Ford replacement system- which we also carry. All Borla exhaust systems are "bolt up". No cutting, drilling or welding is required.
Rapido Replacement Control Arm Bushings....05-0119XR4Ti and Scorpio. We developed this much needed product to make the front end less "sensitive" and likely to "nibble" or "twitter" at the steering wheel. Designed for the anti-roll bar/ control arm connection, you'll say "Hallelujah!" after installation in your vehicle. Rapido also imports many European Group N Spec Suspension Bushings.Although they are still made out of rubber they offer better performance than the Ford USA Spec Bushings
Rapido All Metal 3-Row Replacement Radiator....07-0135MYes! We have both the OE style light weight radiators as well as our all metal 3 row high coolant capacity replacement radiators available. No more non-repairable plastic tank radiators. If this one gets whacked, it's repairable. Order P/N 07-0135M (XR4Ti Stick); P/N 07-0135X (XR4Ti Automatic); P/N 07-0135S (Scorpio); P/N 07-0135MX9 (1989 XR4Ti only). "Identity Crisis: Merkur XR4Ti or Sierra Cosworth ???"

You can make major improvements with one of our "Do It Yourself" headlight refinishing kits (P/N 10-0107) OR we now offer REFINISHED HEADLIGHTS "EXCHANGE". You will be absolutely amazed at the difference you experience in night-driving visibility. Most drivers report having "twice a much light or more" after installing a set of our "refinished" headlights, even with STANDARD bulbs.
NOTE: If your reflectors are in poor condition (generally from water damage or "exploding" bulbs) our refinishing will not improve the condition of the reflector.
Take it a step further and replace the stock bulbs with a pair of our "SilverStar" bulbs and the difference is "Supercalifragilistic". These bulbs (P/N 06-9004C) are stock wattage so they will not "FRY" your headlight switch or "TOAST" the bulb holders, but they do deliver a much "WHITER LIGHT". SEEING IS BELIEVING, and you will believe!!

NOTE: The Rapido Cosworth grill panel is provided with an aluminum grill opening insert. By popular demand we implemented this as a cosmetic improvement. It is intended to be installed after the grill is painted.

|Order By Phone||(541) 544-3333|
It's direct and efficient. Use the Ford or Rapido part numbers and product description; supply your credit card number and expiration date, and the address where your Visa/MasterCard/Discover statements are mailed to you.
At this point in time we are not offering on-line ordering. We want to be able to discuss your parts needs with you, one-on-one. From our experience we know we have the best chance to get you the part you really need on the first attempt, thereby avoiding costly time delays, and additional out of pocket expenses for you. If we can understand your problem, or need, rather than just what you may have been told you need by some third party. We have found that even though a problem may have been accurately identified, the name of the part to be replaced may have been misquoted or misunderstood. Since electrical parts are generally not returnable under any circumstances and all other parts are subject to a 20% restocking charge we think you will agree that our offer of this one-on-one clairification is worth the additional time and phone expense you will incur. If you disagree, or are confidant that you know exactly what you want, simply fax your order to us and it will be processed immediately.
We can also accept orders by mail, but you will need a freight quote
first. Then include with your order the proper payment amount (money order,
please), complete delivery address information,and a phone number where
you may be reached during the day, should we need to clarify any issue.
|Want to Fax us your order?||(541) 544-3100|
If yes, please fill out the order form and fax it to us. Our fax operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Be sure to include your vehicle year, model, and if auto or manual transmission, along with part number(s) and a description of the part(s) you are ordering. Also if faxing, include your current Visa/MasterCard/Discover number with expiration date along with your name as it appears on the card. Again we need phone numbers and proper delivery address with zipcode.
NOTE: We are not currently staffed or equipped to deal with requests for email responses to your fax communications. If you fax an order, request for price quote, or a request for information, we will respond by return fax. Please include your return fax number with any fax communication.
