303,190 miles (487,937.1km) on original engine.

Replaced/upgraded items are listed here, in post #5 -- it's easier to reference that than detailing what's original.

Same, I still have the factory warranty papers too, even the firestone tires warranty =P I also have a Ford pen in there too, most likely it was from the dealer.

Most of the exterior is original with the exception of the front bumper and hood. The interior is original except for the seats, door panels, and center console. I wouldn't call the drivetrain original since it's from a 90 SC.

On the DOHC 90 XR7, 904 miles:

The shell, doors, fenders, trunklid, hood, front door glass, K-member, steering wheel, rear bumper and rear bumper cover are the only original parts on the car. Everything else, including all of the wiring, isn't original to the car.

On the Splitport 94 LX, 133,XXX miles:

Pretty much everything but the engine, engine harness, EEC, ignition system, transmission, radiator, driveshaft, diff, halfshafts, exhaust, seats, and stereo is still original.

most of the wiring, and I'm sure some of the glass is original (my car was in a side swipe accedent before I bought it) And I've replaced all of the drive train except for the engine shortblock, 110k Under 9psi boost and still going strong, long live the 3.8L n/a
