My flux capacitor is rattling!

I just returned from 1985 and after I came to a stop with my wheels on fire I noticed a rattle. I think it is my flux capacitor...anyone have any experience with exchanging the 2.7L Flux for the 3.2L Mr. Fusion?

I also would like the put the hovercraft conversion on...any idea on the wheel spacers?

Due the extreme speeds of bending space and time...I am going need something a little more substantial than the GT3 front end...looking for pictures of someone who installed the Concorde nose.

I'm new to the forum...thanks for your help!

You need to be sure it is producing 1.21 gigawatts. How's the ride from 0-88mph?

I've noticed something about brand new boxster owners. They really have nothing to fix or repair on their cars, and they also have very few upgrades on the aftermarket from which to choose. Hence the humorous threads!

I sure wish I had your concerns, Rail.

I got a seat out of the car all torn down to the metal, a console hinge replacement project that's gone undone for at least three months now, and I really ought to replace my coolant resovoir before it springs a leak due to age.

KREEM It?

Randall, there is a product that used to be available for fixing "holy" motorcycle gas tanks called "KREEM". I can't see why that wouldn't work on a coolant reservoir if you wanted to go ahead and prevent the problem by pre-lining the reservoir - could save on the replacement part cost. Of course, just as much work to drain and get the tank out of there... but it appears you may have a thrifty side that can appreciate the part cost savings.

I already bought the part, however, I might just put this stuff inside the new one to make it last even longer.... unless someone can tell me that they've fixed the radiator overflow to NOT leak when it gets older.

Randall...such negativity. Turn that frown upside down! 987 owners have plenty to worry about...the CAR PAYMENT!
