Borla Muffler on a 2002 Mercury Cougar
I got a Borla Type-S for my 2002 Mercury Cougar. It has a 2.0L 4 Cyl. It
sounds really good, especially for a 4 Cyl. I did a before and after of the
muffler, the muffler also added a little bit of power to my car. It isn't
one of those crappy sounding fart can mufflers that sound like something is
about to blow up. It has a good deep tone to it. I say this was a very good

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

Video tribute to my 1999 Mercury Cougar
7 years ago today I brought home what has turned into a very important
piece of my life. This car has helped me mature as a human being, has given
me some of the happiest times of my life, and helped me meet some wonderful
friends along the journey. I decided to put this video together so that
others can take the journey of the past 7 years with me, and experience
some of the highs and lows I have gone through. 99% of the work that has
ever been done to this car has been done with my own two hands and with the
help of some very talented friends. In the past 7 years, I have probably
put enough money into this car to have bought a new one perhaps multiple
times over. I wouldn't trade the past 7 years for the world, they have been
an amazing part of who I am today.

Door Panel Backer Boards - How To Replace (1967-1970 Cougar)
Since door panels aren't reproduced for Cougars, good used originals are
valuable. Sometimes, the front vinyl side is usable, but the backer boards
are toast. Luckily, there's a solution. We now carry brand new,
better-than-stock backer boards made from a more durable pressboard
material. We have a version for 1967-1968 Cougars, as well as another
version for 1969-1970 Cougars. See links below.
In this video, we show you how to separate a vinyl door panel from the its
old backer board, repair the metal hanger piece, and reattach it and the
vinyl to the new backer board. We also cover removal & replacement of the
inner beltline strip (the felt-lined trim that touches the door glass).

How to Reset the ECM
After watching the Smack resetting the ECM and getting a huge increase in
mpg, I started looking up how to reset the ECM.
There are a few different ways, but they all pretty much say the same
thing, just in different ways. The majority of the info I gleaned was from
high performance car sites where people add after market parts and need to
reset the ECM so their vehicles will adjust to the new equipment and
variables. Hopefully this will help us with our cells/systems.
BTW I am NOT a mechanic or an electrician - IOW this is for informational
