1996 Cougar XR7 - PI Build/Swap w/ Magnaflow Exhaust System
This is a video of the start up of my built up ported PI engine, the Exhaust system, and a short drive off.
This build took about a year in total, gathering parts, rebuilding the
heads and putting it all together. I still need to get it Dynotuned but that will be for
later on. It runs on 94 octane as I want to avoid pinging until i get a
tune done. It was fun to see it all come together. Was a lot of work but I
never gave up on the project. The Audio level is different in some clips as
I used a different camera for them.

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

1992 5.0 HO 25th anniversary cougar 0-100 mph. This is a bone stock car.
The cougars from this era were known to have a restrictive Exhaust system as well as a power-leeching smog
pump. I plan on putting a full cat-back Exhaust on it.
Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes,
and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers
matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet
convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in
this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major
components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your
numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto
Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible. Visit him

The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first
production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the
"record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how
the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it
eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some
of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques
used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail
than the 'average' Cougar.
Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the
images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.

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.
