I'm inclined to say they are, but the VAF openings are different sizes between the NA and XR2. could still be the same box, though.

Guess I'll have to take both apart and check it out.  I want to drop a pipe out of the bottom below bumper level for a cold air intake and yes a Rocketchip will be my next

How did the pipe out the bottom work out. Was it worth while doing. The logic behind it seems good, but in practise ??

Is there a easy upgrade to the air flow meter /Mass Flow Sensor.
I'm looking at upgrading my air filter to a pod style and looking at how to get a larger/longer pod into the space. As it is now I can only fit one that is 89 mm long. I could trim the last 2 cm of off the intake pipe but that only gives me 2 cm more length of pod. There dose not seem to be much available between 89 mm and 150 mm long pods around.
I have done a little bit of research and found there are other sensors that seem to be more accurate and smaller in size. Air Flap Type v Hot wire sensor type. Or would a sensor like this (Air Flow Meter Ford Courier Econovan Laser Mazda Bravo B2600 323 MX5 FP39-13-215) be a better unit instead of the bulky OEM units. What would need to be done to fit one of these.

Red car, new trunk struts and mounted the rear view mirror, AGAIN!  White car, replaced the fog lights, fixed the dangling front bumper, finally applied the Roo wheel center decals and started on my MR2 front spoiler mod.

Super nice car. You might also want to list it on the 91-94 Capri FB groups. They are more active than the forum and pictures are easier to post. Good luck with it.

1991 Mercury Capri. Purchased in October 1990. Car is red in color with grey interior and a black top. Manual transmission. The car is all original other than tires (@ 12,902), brake booster, (@ 12,900 approx), and clutch repaired (@12,895). Top is pristine and the back plastic window is clear. There are a few tiny dings and a small dent in the drivers door (grocery cart) was fixed in the 1990's. The seats are original and have no wear or holes. The rear seat looks to have a stain on it, but I believe that will come out pretty easily. The seat foam has deteriorated over the last thirty years on the driver and passenger seat bottom, so they are not as soft as they used to be.  To my knowledge, all records, books, brochures, and window sticker are available (I need to check the file). The oil was changed on a regular basis and the car serviced, whether it needed it or not.

This is an unmolested car that was the pride and joy of my mother for close to 30 years. I think, hope, the photos speak for themselves.

What other questions do you have?

Hey Guys,

I have a 1991 Mercury Capri that was purchased new by my mother in October of 1990 at a dealership in Connecticut. The car was moved (with our family) to Georgia in 1991 and has remained garaged ever since. The car was a 'Sunday Driver' for my parents and thus has not seen a ton of miles (12,977.3) We would like to see the car go to someone who loves and enjoys these cars. If you are interested, please reach out and make an offer. The car is in North Metro Atlanta.

I'm not sure how to post photos here. So feel free to reach out to me at I have a ton of photos.

As the XR2 Turbo's rebuild nears the finish. I'm looking to upgrade the Air filter to a K&N Pod type filter or something similar..  So can any one advise me of the best size or type of Air filter and  adaptor required to fit the air filter.
