Apparently the mustang fuel pump will fit in the 1st Gen Probe LX.

all the 1st gen pumps are the same. so if it worked for the lx, it would work for any 1st gen.

also, i found out 2 days ago, a stainless clutch line for the 2nd gen works on the 1st gen with no mods.

Heh, good stuff

FWIW, FrankenProbe has been running a '94 Escort clutch line for the past year...mine had blown and I needed one ASAP, so I picked it up from the junkyard for $3. It's still in there right now...prolly the reason the car is so fast

That sway bar kicks ass

Also, GM fin type door clips will do wonders for those falling off 93-94 door panels! I've had mine for a couple of years and the panels stay on nice and snug.

Also, Inner Door Panel Fasteners or clips for '98-'01 Ford Explorer work great for replacement Sideskirt clips or for installing stock groud effects or door caps on a base model or newer SE.

1-wire Oxygen sensor from early 80s Buick/GM can work to replace our 3-4 wire sensors without throwing a CEL (and will get rid of the CEL if its because of your oxygen sensors.
$18 each instead of the $50+ each that a 3 or 4 wire sensor costs for the Probe.
I have been running 1 wire sensors for a year now without problems. Gas mileage is the same. Might be a little rich when started on cold mornings.

I would assume the Protege calipers and whatnot are the same if the rotors are the same and Rafi's BBK will fit Probes and Proteges.

I found that the chrome centercaps for a mazda RX8 fits the chrome swirlies perfectly. You can pick them up at a dealer for $7 a piece or online for as cheap as $4.50

Part number L082-37-192

Looks damn good

Awesome info!

What about the miata pop-up headlamps?
I was going to ask BeatJunkie, but he's no longer here, due to silly mistakes.

I saw a MazdaSport magazine tonight that had a headlight conversion...it was the one with the AWR Miata.

I wouldnt say it necessarily "fits" or is a stock replacement. It just happens to be a popular racing radiat that does fit in the probe with very little work.

Quick question. If the calipers from a 911 carrera fit on a 2G will the Brembo calipers that they make for the 911 work? Since Brembo doesn't make calipers for the Probe.

I installed the escort strut mounts and I used a dremmel to router out the upper hole to make it larger but keep the "D", worked great, no impact needed.

and my opinion, these are great with eibachs, the car sits level now, well, perhaps a "slight" rake to the front.

I had these on the car with coil overs, and cranked all the way down, the car tucked the 18s on the front and was "drivable", but my front end would have been ripped off in under a week.

but it looked SICK!

anyhoo, back to daily driver mode. Eibachs + EFM = elite.

The vulcan 3.0l V6 engine found in 90-92 LX can also be found in the following cars, trucks, and vans...

All years of:

Ford Taurus
Merc Sable
Ford Tempo
Merc Topaz
Ford Aerostar Van
Ford Windstar Van (early years)
Ford Ranger Truck
Mazda B3000 Truck

Think of all of the cheap junkyard parts.
