Title: RX-4 shell on RX-7 base
Post by: McPie on May 18, 2008, 09:26:10 PM
Hello
 
I always like oldschool cars like ford mustang GT500 aka ELEONORA :)
 
but I also like RX-4 coupe:D
 
now I have clear body of rx-4  without transmition, steering stytem, nothing except
interior both hood.
 
and I bought dead rx-7 FC NA next week starting the rebuild
I want cut of rx-7 shell from transmition and steering system and stick rx-4 shell
 
Has anyone done that before? any suggestions how to do it
I want to copy that idea :)

I used to live next to a guy who\'d put a 2.8 Granada lump in his Moggy Minor, it was utterly hilarious. Looked totally stock except for Minilites and side exit-exhauts, and the look on people\'s faces when it owned them off the lights was worth the price of an admission ticket!
 
Do, it, dude!

whel my FC TII turbo died :mad:, so project still waiting :)
 
but made somce calcs :)
(http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/4092/calcaz0.jpg)
 
there few problems
a) some how I need to make FC NA base 8.75cm longer:2eek
b) rx-4 shell width is 2cm shorter will be problems with R18 wheels.
front 225/40 rear 265/40
c) new rx-4 will be higher for 12cm tan FC, that sucks drom with springs will give only 4-5cm
 
good news car will be lighter by more than 200kg:Thumbsup!
 
here is the FC DONOR, it looks very good it is sad to cut it of

McPie That rx7 looks too good to be cuted!!!! interior is awesome!!! you should look for other donor i think. rx4 easy can fit 18" wheels. mine has 17" now.

there is one more FC with 1.8 WV DOHC KR 134kw
but there wate of time and money it has now full FC wire, sot ir means more problems
here I have everything.
One day  20B replace 13B, but I don\'t know when that day comes :)
 
 
any way who can tell where I have to cut if want to make 8.75cm base longer...
center, fron or end? I think better way to dot ir near rear side.
 
any solutions how to make driveshaft longer?
Title: RX-4 shell on RX-7 base
Post by: apex_lt on June 02, 2008, 08:25:09 PM
Drive shaft will be smallest problem you need to solve. then you will need drife shaft, just call me and i will give you number for drive shaft specialized service. It\'s easy to make it longer or shorter.
If you need longer wheel base easyiest way to cut car in half under drivers seat. IMHO

I did some cutting, sorry for mobile photo quality, but some people say that it is better to make rx-4 shell shorter by 8.75cm

maybe, but today the master :D will find out what he will do to my project
make rx-7 longer or rx-4 shorter.

what\'s your opinion?

Oh and one more, I think that rotory project price is the same as eletro car so if it is hibrid of two cars anyway maybe convert it into zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzoom electric car :)

Post by: McPie on July 17, 2008, 04:52:30 PM
few weeks was away from project...
had some redline tour:Viking
 
so back to business, I\'ve decided to save money, to save rx-7 base and even almost to save RX-4 shell
 
so here we go finaly cutted and ready to put on new sheel, this will be this week
 
(http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/2098/pict0016au0.jpg)

so what will you do with shorter wheel base?
Title: RX-4 shell on RX-7 base
Post by: McPie on July 19, 2008, 01:14:16 PM
so I did some cutind and then f*ckin cuting tool had broke, that was bad, all day I was in bad luck, so tried to use another tool electrisity and started to cut further, but then electricity just gone....
 
back to rx-4....
here is my idea. to move whole shell a little bit in to front as shown in picture below(sorry had no time to install photo shop - paint rulezzz :D )
(http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/4525/shouldbena6.jpg)
 
so I understood that I need more cuting on rx-7,
I\'ve disconected brakes, clutch, that some mazda wires and I\'d like to finish cuting this week if some will turn on the electricity :)
 
now it looks like...

also searchinf for drawing of engine mounts from 13b rew to 13b
and searching for info how to swap 13b rew in to fc :)

[FONT=\'Times New Roman\']The allure of swapping to a newer engine with more power is attractive, especially with the FD3S utilizing twin, sequential turbos and producing 255hp stock (over 55hp more than an Kouki FC3S).  In reality, swapping a 13B-REW twin-turbo engine from an FD3S into an FC3S is not easy.  There are two known methods of addressing the engine mounting problem, and we well cover both options.

The most popular method is to adapt the stock 13B-REW engine mounts to the FC3S chassis.  Trying to adapt the stock 13B-REW engine mounts to the stock FC3S engine mount locations on the chassis is a difficult proposition, and it\'s not a recommended design.  The stock 13B-REW engine mounts are both located on the rear, side housing; the stock FC3S 13BT engine mounts are located on the center, intermediate housing.  This makes for a sharp angle to connect both "points".  When researching engine mounts in general, the weight load vector is universally in a vertical plane; the engine (above) loads the mounts (below) straight up and down.  Thus, we should try and keep this design structure in mind.  The easiest way to accomplish this is to keep the stock 13B-REW engine mounts and weld in a new crossmember toward the rear of the FC3S engine "cradle".  There is just enough space to weld in a 3" crossmember, and getting the 13B-REW engine mounts to mount nicely is pretty easy.  This allows you to keep almost all the 13B-REW components.[/FONT]
 
[FONT=\'Times New Roman\']The optional method to welding in a crossmember is to drill and tap the 13B-REW center housing to accept the stock FC3S 13BT passenger engine mount; three M14 x 1.50 holes need to be drilled and tapped into the underside of the center, intermediate housing of the 13B-REW engine to accept the three 17mm bolts that secure the bottom of the engine to the passenger side engine mount.  This requires a custom oil pan or the stock FC3S 13BT oil pan.  The stock FC3S driver\'s side engine mount is secured by two nuts on already existing studs on the 13B-REW.  The passenger side engine mount is mounted in the middle of the engine, necessitating the oil pan change.  If you decide on using the FC3S 13BT oil pan, you need to seal the front edge of the 13BT oil pan, as it\'s longer than the stock 13B-REW oil pan by about 1/4". `
(http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/3343/tvirtinimasup5.jpg) (http://imageshack.us)
(http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/tvirtinimasup5.jpg/1/w694.png) (http://g.imageshack.us/img210/tvirtinimasup5.jpg/1/)
[FONT=\'Times New Roman\']Once you take care of the mounting problem, the rest is pretty easy.[/FONT][FONT=\'Times New Roman\']  An FC3S clutch can be bolted onto the FD3S stock flywheel if on a budget.  The stock FC3S transmission should mate with the 13B-REW with very few problems; if the 13B-REW came off an automatic transmission equipped chassis, there is an extra bolt hole in the bell housing, which will not mate up with anything on a stock, 5-speed FC3S transmission.  The FC3S starter should fit with little fuss.

If you\'re going to run a stock FD3S stock ECU, you\'ll need the engine harness, ignition system harness, ignitor, and all coils from the FD3S, minimally.  Going to aftermarket [/FONT][FONT=\'Times New Roman\']EMS[/FONT][FONT=\'Times New Roman\'] fuel and ignition control gives you more flexibility but may require additional ignition components.  Choosing a Haltech EMS for control will allow you to use the stock 13B-REW ignition input (trigger wheel and magnetic pick-ups) and the stock FC3S coils/ignitors!

Due to the 13B-REW already using a front-mounted intercooler, this will pretty much require you to do the same.  This would probably be one of the most expensive aftermarket components to get this conversion completed.  A popular option is to run the GReddy elbow into the throttle body, as this is a polished aluminum piece versus the stock plastic pipe.

An upgrade fuel pump is almost a necessity, as the 13B-REW uses 2x550 + 2x850 versus the stock 4x550 on a FC3S 13BT.  A Walbro 255lph is more than adequate for this application.

The radiator hoses are slightly different for the 13B-REW, so mating up with the stock FC3S 13BT radiator will take a little custom work.  "Universal" ribbed, radiator hoses can be used as a cheap alternative.  It\'s highly recommended to get an upgrade radiator if you still have the stock unit.  The GReddy pulley kit is another option to slow down the radiator and alternator a bit and comes with it\'s own special size belt.

Stock twin turbos will easily fit into the FC3S engine bay, but a custom downpipe is required to fit with the rest of the FC3S exhaust system.  You can stick with the stock intake system on the twin turbos which will minimally require a pair of cone filters or equivalent.

Oil lines will need to be custom made to fit the 13B-REW oil fittings to the stock FC3S oil cooler up front.  The front oil cooler lines is close to the 13BT set-up, but the rear oil cooler line mounts higher up on the engine by the oil filter.

[FONT=\'Times New Roman\']I have mirrored Paul Ko\'s infamous 13BT versus 13B-REW write-up here:  http://fc3spro.com/TECH/SWAP/FD3S/rew.html[/FONT][/FONT]

I believe the Na box won\'t clear the Fd\'s flywheel (bigger diameter) you may also need an fd starter.

Best thing is to get hold of a Turbo 2/Fd box or an Rx8 6 speed as they will both bolt up fine.

Off the top of my head i can\'t think of much electrical stuff that goes on the box? (reverse lights being the main one) so in theory it would\'nt take allot to swap the box.
Title: RX-4 shell on RX-7 base
Post by: McPie on September 05, 2009, 06:08:09 PM
so you offer take TII or RX-8 box or place an FD gera box, wich I also can get with drive shaft and ect. But then I\'ll have to veld more because FC and FD gear connections to body are different. Same as engines 13b rew and 13b NA
 
Reverse light is not a problem can make other wireing for it, bet what about ecu? Ilso woud be intrested to have 6 gears in this project, but as I heard those gears are short so there is no big diference between 5 and 6 gears....
 
oh one more thing I have missing few parts and seeking for

Hello McPie Nice blue pictures. Beautifull woman and baby siting in the car. I think I know them :)

Please hold on and stop for some time. As I told you i might have some parts. Unfortunately I don\'t have much time.
i know that i ordered door handles from Australia, also i think i have one or more Air vents (those round things on rear pilars) they are not the best condition but quite good.
Then i start my project i start to collect parts didn\'t paying atention to quality of parts so i have some parts 2x.

From memory what i have -
door handles (without lock\'s)
Air Vent (s)
Door trims (need to retrim them)
From USA ordered door window lift mechanism (need to look 1 or 2)
So i can sell those parts to you.
As i finished my car know (95%) will sell some parts on ebay or else.
Front grile I told that i will give you as it belongs to that body you bought.

First you need to make your car running. those bling bling things are not necesary now.

Its been a while since i swaped a Na engine for a T2 one but from memory i think the mounts where the same, i can\'t tell you if the fd/rx8 mounts are different as i\'ve never fitted one to a t2.

I think you can fit the Na flywheel but if you did that you would have to use a NA clutch and starter (flywheel is smaller dia on the na and uses a smaller dia clutch) of cause you could go this way and use an uprated na clutch but i don\'t know allot about the gear box ratios or how strong they are?
Title: RX-4 shell on RX-7 base
Post by: apex_lt on September 08, 2009, 09:08:31 AM
Just a question for you McPie.
Why NA flywheel is smaller than turbo?
Don\'t you think about problems that are waiting for you by fiting "honda civic 1,4 flywheel and clutch on chevy big block crankshaft" ?

My advice don\'t play too much, concentrate on those problems that you have. Don\'t mix parts (my car now has Mazda, nissan, BMW, ford parts, and that\'s not good thing in future repairs). So try to find turbo gearbox that will wit engine without any problems.
If turbo gbox twice NA, still these money are nothing compare to all project price.
I\'ve done lot of mistakes trying to make something cheaper.

Best way - think about everything (making, exploring, repairing, searching for parts in future).

Mounting of gearbox is not a problem anyway. You can make custom mounts. as i did to my engine, gearbox, propeler shaft. usaly it takes few hours to thing "how" and few hours to make if you have materials.
So concentrate on other things.

a few month ago I thought like J. Clarcson...

if I want to build an RX4? well I can do it, seriously how hard can it be?

unfortanetly I was wrong..

so there no time to loose for chit chat

all my plans to avoid rx7 base cut off and make it longer by 8.75cm died, when some people putted rx4 shell on the rx7 base...
in this case I need one more fc shell for spare metal parts or at least part of fc base.

here some pics what is done for ELEONORA project...

hm quite interesting. have you some drawings of how car will look like after adding some lenght to fenders?
draw a shape of the car. yes 929 needs longer bonnet, this could work out...

THESE ARE SEALED BEAM INCANDESCENT GLASS HEADLIGHTS, NOT PLASTIC!!!

THIS LISTING IS FOR A SET OF 4 NEW 5-3/4" GLASS INCANDESCENT HEADLIGHT BULBS. THESE INCANDESCENT SEALED BEAMS ARE THE SAME STYLE YOUR CAR CAME WITH WHEN IT WAS NEW. THIS SET INCLUDES 2 HIGH BEAM & 2 HIGH / LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS. THESE HAVE THE ORIGINAL SHAPED PRONGS ON THE BACK SO THEY WILL PLUG RIGHT INTO YOUR ORIGINAL WIRING HARNESS PLUGS.

hmmmmm I have all interior parts available except front panel, mid panel, rear seat and carpet. Front seats later can go for 40 both, pick up only.

but those are like 2200km from myself. I could arrange delivery of those, to UK it would cost around 30pounds and to you have no a clue.
You can pick up on your own or I could send by post. Parts are free of charge or if you insist I would take a bottle of Jack Daniels :)

If you need I can take all the red interior, bring it to uk and give you all. cause it just take space in garage.

How urgent do you need it? Because I could deliver it within one week. But those need to go away realy fast.

Emailed you RE: the red interior :)

Mainly I am just looking for the red door cards, as most of my red interior (carpet, roof lining, seats) are still intact and still there, but my red door cards have been replaced with black ones long before I bought it and I don\'t like them.

Red door cards are the most important thing to me, but I am also on the lookout for if they are in good condition, a replacement glovebox hatch / lid, the center console storage bin that sits behind the gear shift between the two seats, and the red door kick strips that sit along the bottom of the door well and say MAZDA on them.

Aside from that I am always on the lookout for red interior trims and plastic panels, possibly red rear pillar (speaker) covers, and bits of trim etc like on the vents.

So mainly door cards and some trim, the rest I think is fortunately still intact and has not been butchered by previous owners. :)

These 3 things (both driver and passenger sides) are the items I am wanting more than the rest, the door cards being the most important of all to me.

OK I'm back.I know nobody missed me :D

in general everything sucks.. first "my mechanics" lost 1 year and more for rolling shell build due to $ were invested somewhere else  :angry5:

well I gave some money to get my car back then came time for sanding oh c'mon again the money went somewhere else and was lost more than 2.5 years :angry5: in general I lost more then 3.5 years. I was ready to beat and go court and blah blah, luckily after long waiting I got my project back. So it left a little more than 1 month to finish body work, paint, put in all glass and not bling bling parts.

Count down 2016/01/30 O0

Good to see your back and you have a car you can work on again.

Sadly your story is the same story we hear over here again and again, which causes lots of stress and loss of monies and in some cases the car lost completely :(
