Wanted Items / Wanted FC NA Aftermarket manifold and Silencer
« on: November 27, 2017, 09:28:30 AM »
Bit of a long shot, but does anyone have an aftermarket exhaust they'd be willing to part with for an NA FC.

Just from the engine back to the Y pipe.

If not I'll have to buy a racing beat thing, and they're a little expensive!

2nd generation RX-7's / Anti after burn solenoid pumbing
« on: October 11, 2017, 07:42:55 PM »
On my car the AAV solenoid (the yellow one) only has one end connected to the rats nest the other end is just capped off?

Is this normal?
On the vacuum diagram from the training manual it appears to be capped off as well, but why fit a valve at all if its going to have one side capped off anyway.

Can anyone shed light on this?

Wanted Items / FC Vert Seats

Looking to get hold of some nice black vert seats to replace my cruddy beige Coupe ones.
Anyone got a set in reasonable condition going?

Hi guys,
I'm restoring an old FC NA that I picked up cheap on eBay last year, I'm still in the process of stripping out the engine for a rebuild, and I'm hoping that I leave out some of the emissions stuff and that awful looking reactor / manifold when I put her back together.

I've done a search but can't really find an answer, and a lot of info relates to the American version whereas our UK version seems to use an older emissions and ignition system.

From what I understand, I don't need a cat as it obviously never came with one, but I do need to pass my idle emissions test, so my question is, providing the engine is running well, can it pass this test with an aftermarket manifold and no air pump chucking extra oxygen into the manifold?
