"HOT DAMN ---------- I can see again."

XR4Ti Quad Headlights
Lights shown above installed with Cosworth grill panel - not included.

This is the all new XR4Ti Quad headlight kit by Rapido Group.

  1. User installable in less than 2 hours.
  2. No special tools required.
  3. No cutting or welding -- a true "bolt up" installation.
  4. Fully adjustable light aiming.
  5. Includes plug in wire harness with relays.
  6. Fit standard and Cosworth grill panel.
  7. Can be restored to O.E. headlamps in minutes.

NOTE: The European Cosworth headlights are absolutely gorgeous and they put out a prodigious amount of light, BUT be aware that installation of the Cosworth headlights requires cutting away the sheet metal to which your original headlights are attached. This procedure is very labor intensive (expensive) and it precludes any easy return to the original headlight, or quad headlight, configuration.

Place your orders now.

XR4Ti Clear Corner Lights

XR4Ti Clear Corner Lights

These corner lights replace the XR4Ti fog light, and turn signal, with a one piece clear light. Installation requires the use of a Dremel tool but the work done does not interfere with returning to original lights in the future. Provided complete with bulb, bulb holder, and wire harness, these lights can be installed in less than an hour.

Order Product #:  06-1000CCLK


Rapido Refurbished Headlight Exchange

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!!

Order Product #:  03-0116

Scorpio Front Fenders

Scorpio Front Fenders

Sheet metal repair panels are also available from Rapido. Since the stock fenders are welded (rather than bolted) in place, new fenders may not be any more expensive than attempting to salvage reasonably good condition "used" fenders. Be sure to call us for your repair panel needs.

Cosworth RS Hood Louver Set

Cosworth RS Hood Louver Set

The original Cosworth hood louvers were injection molded from a high temperature tolerant resin. Replica louvers made with fiberglass and ABS materials are not compatible with these high temperatures and will not hold their shape. Rapido has chosen to create replica Cosworth RS louvers in cast aluminum. These do not distort from the extreme heat conditions and they may be painted to match your vehicle color, or polished to a chrome like luster. Provided with mounting instructions and hardware.

Rapido Reproduction Grill for Scorpio

Rapido Reproduction Grill for Scorpio

Broken-cracked-wired in place, or worse yet GONE! If one of these best describes the condition of your original Scorpio Grill, Rapido has the fix for you. Our hand-laid fiberglass "reproduction grill" , shown here resting on one of our equally beautiful Scorpio (embroidered logo) floor mats, fits perfectly (no muss, no fuss). Installation takes less than 2 minutes (literally!). It is provided in a black gel-coat finish and ready to install "As is" or "paint to match".

Rapido Replica Grill Panels for XR4Ti

Rapido Replica Grill Panels for XR4Ti

Both our Cosworth Replica Grill Panels and our OE XR4Ti Replica Grill Panels are manufactured using hand laid fiberglass in our molds. They are lightweight, strong and absolutely gorgeous. You cannot tell them from the original unless you look at the back side of the part. Our manufacturer is here in the U.S. and specializes in production of fiberglass and carbon fiber parts for Kamanari and Panoz, among others. If you want the best in a fiberglass reproduction Grill for your Merkur, look for the Rapido logo which is laminated in the back of every Rapido grill panel.

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.

Rapido XR4Ti Evolution IV Car Cover

Rapido XR4Ti Evolution IV Car Cover

We have had this car cover tailored to our specifications because we think this is how a car cover should fit. They are tailored from Kimberly Clarks Evolution IV material and have a 4 year warranty. These car covers feature fitted mirror pockets, and grommets are installed for a security cable. If you are not impressed with the one size fits all "KKK" look, this one should please you. Look for the Rapido logo silk screened prominently on the back of the cover.

Coolant Fill Bottle/Resevoirs

Coolant Fill Bottle/Resevoirs

We keep them all in stock as well as the correct pressure caps. We also stock the coolant level sensor and grommet, and related mounting parts. Don't wait until yours has a "Blow-out". The reservoir is not cheap, but it is less expensive than being towed.



Maybe a broken connector on your TFI Module or your Idle Speed Solenoid has created drivability problems. Rapido has the Repair Connector and Pigtail Harness for these as well as for other relays, solenoids and switches in your XR4Ti or Scorpio. We also stock most of the necessary relays, solenoids, modules and switches to replace any that may be worn out or have become "intermittent" in operation.

You want switches?

You need switches?

We GOT switches!


Window switches, mirror switches, light switches, ABS brake switches, power seat switches. Whatever your switch needs may be, give us a call -- we got switches!

Assorted Mounts, Bushings and Isolators


Motor mounts, Transmission Mounts, Differential Mounts, Strut Mounts, Anti-Sway Bar Mounts, Steering Rack Mounts, Cross Member Isolators, Suspension Bushings, Bump Stops, Strut Dust Covers, and more. If you want it now -- If you need it now, we probably have it in stock NOW.

Rapido XR4Ti Leather Shift Boot

Leather Shift Boot

The Rapido real leather shift boot is tailored expressly for the XR4Ti. It fits over the factory rubber boot, retaining the much needed heat and noise insulation the the stock boot provides. Top it off with one of our real leather, or carbon fiber and leather, shift knobs.

Try it you'll like it!

We also have burlwood and burlwood with leather shift knobs for the Scorpio and the XR4Ti as well as leather wrapped steering wheels.

Just a few of our "Go Fast" Goodies

Rapido XR4Ti 2.3L Turbo Aluminum Cyclinder Head


Rapido 2.3L Turbo Aluminum Cyclinder Head

The Rapido Aluminum replacement cylinder head is not a high flow, high performance, racing cylinder head, although it does flow marginally better than a stock cast-iron cylinder head. Out of the box, it will IMPROVE your vehicles performance by virtue of "better power to weight" and "lower center of gravity". These differences will be immediately noticeable to all but the already "brain dead". Particular attention has been devoted to improved coolant flow to "eliminate the combustion chamber hot spots" the original cast-iron head is famous for. This trait contributes, in large part, to the cast-iron head tendency to blow head gaskets and to develop (and ultimately fail due to) cracking.

Rapido 2.3L Turbo Aluminum Cyclinder Head w/Valves


It is a direct replacement cylinder head that will accept all the stock valve train and accessories while keeping all the manifolding and accessories mounted in the their stock relative positions. This was done intentionally to keep the power-bands (torque and horsepower) similar to stock. If you want to port and polish, install larger valves or aftermarket camshafts, these things can be done more easily than with a cast-iron head and the results will be measurably better than if you had started with a good cast-iron head, if you could find one.



Rapido 2.3L Turbo Pistons

Rapido is now offering 2.3Turbo Forged Pistons. We have these "off the shelf" for Standard Bore as well as "20-over and 30-over". These are stock "Low compression" with the correct (combustion chamber matching) "D" dish in the piston top. Since "Hypereutectic" pistons are not suitable for turbocharged engines and the original equipment (OE) pistons are no longer offered by Ford, we suggest these forged pistons may be exactly what you are looking for. Only $454 for the set of pistons, pins and locks. Turbo piston rings (pictured) also available...call for prices.

NOTE: For your engine rebuilding needs we also offer gasket, seals, bearings, oil pumps, freeze plugs, high flow water pump AND MORE. We stock ARP rod bolt sets for your stock rods (P/N 07-6002). If you intend to push past the 300HP level, we suggest you consider replacing your stock rods with a set of Sportsman rods (P/N 07-0164).

Rapido XR4Ti Valves

Rapido 2.3L Turbo Valves

We also offer replacement swirl polished stainless steel valves, high flow radiused with hardened tips and undercut stems. Choose from stock diameters, or the popular 1.59/1.89 big valve combination.

Many (not all) performance enhancing products and accessories are illegal for street use and are "for off road use only". It is your responsibility to use them accordingly.
