What about the belt you run if using a double alternator pulley (after removing airpump). Isn\'t it one from a mini or something?

I will get the part number as I got mine from Halfords for the belt. (comparison in size).
Think Grinder is right, I think we should keep this going as long as possible but try to pick out what is a direct fit, maybe even a part number if you have it and what sort of car its from. We can then create a parallel list to show what items you can get that fits with a bit of modding. That way we can cater for the people that want just a direct bolt on item and who may not have the necessary skills.
We can include some of the most common items such as coil packs of TII\'s to fit EGI\'s etc and maybe the reason why as well.  If there is any info within this thread that people disagree on then please free free to speak up as I know some people can have better results than someone else for the same item.

I needed new front light glass for the popups - im sure other models fit but the MK2 MR2 ones go straight in.  Also handy if you want Raybrigs!

They seem similar to a CIBIE 5x7 fitting - but I know some lenses I bought were\'nt an exact fit and needed a filing down - but they were naff anyways.  Are the MR2 lenses a direct swap ?

FD thermostat will fit an FC and there is a Saab one that fits that has a lower opening temp.

FD Diff internals will fit an FC TII diff casing and give you an LSD.

FD Brake Master cylinder will fit TII and give better braking pressure

Rear FD Braided brake line can be used as a clutch line for the TII

FD RZ front callipers can take a 32mm front disc so bigger and wider front discs (from anything) can be fitted. Callipers will need a bracket to relocate it. I fitted M5 discs  (335 x 30) to my FC using stock FD calipers with a spacer in the middle from Billet Bitz who used to advertise on here.  The RZ caliper already has the spacer from mazda.  The brakes were fantastic on track.
400 BHP - 650 KG\'s = 616 BHP Per Ton of Rotary Power

That\'s the way to do it! :Thumbsup!

I\'ve read on the rx7club site that Evo IX brembo brakes fit with minor mods on the FC fronts.  Apparently you need to drill out the caliper bolt holes a little, and the rotors need machining down a small amount and the centre hole is a little narrow for the FC centre\'s so that needs to be machined out just a little.  This will only work on 17" or above wheels, and may require a spacer as the calipers are a little wider.
