Rotary and General Chit-Chat / It is time...Winter is here
« on: October 17, 2007, 11:36:18 PM »
The time has come...:yes

Well winter is pretty much officially here. Heres a quick check list of things to do before winter sets in fully:

1 - Take care on the roads when driving in the wet.
2 - Dont drive in the snow or ice.
3 - If your running crappy old hard rubber get new tyres.
4 - Change your coolant for a fresh mix.
5 - Underbody Seal your car.
6 - Check your Discs & pads have plenty of life in them.
7 - Take extra care at junctions, give ways, and especially roundabouts
8 - Never give the car full throttle when wet...gradually build boost & revs
9 - Always Keep a pair of gloves & spare jacket or jumper in the car if going on long journeys
10 - & FFS dont try racing anything in the wet...

Overall drive carefully & use common sense :driving

If you have any usefull tips please add them :Thumbs-up


General Technical / No Boost After Shifting?
« on: October 12, 2007, 06:25:15 PM »
Im usually quite good at troubleshooting but this one has me stumped...

The car was mapped 2 days ago and this problem wasnt there when it was mapped or being mapped. It happened afterwards...possibly on the way home.
I noticed when i got home that the Charge Control Actuator (Y pipe one) wasnt connected to the plenum & there was a split in my elbow. Both have been rectified, but now have another problem.

If i drive nice and steady. I.E 1/4 throttle...when the car gets to 2-3k it starts burbling/sqealing up to 5k...not like its a mapping issue, more like a turbo/vacuum issue...if i floor it it seems to disappear :Hammer

If i shift through the gears...I.E 2nd to 3rd. I lose boost and have nothing until i lift off and re-apply which point i have positive boost

BUT if i leave it in 2nd from e.g 2k and floor it, it goes all the way to redline without incident...

:Hammer :Hammer :Hammer Its difficult to explain...:Hammer :Hammer :Hammer

This sounds similair...

"Chris Davis Adds
After reassembling everything on the car I was getting full boost in both turbos including a nice transition from the primary to the secondary. The problem was between 2000 rpm and 4500 rpm I kept getting a loud squeal coming from under the intake plenum. I narrowed down the noise to the air control valve (ACV). I removed the intake plenum again but could not find anything wrong with the ACV. I finally received advice from Dave at Blackstone Performance. I told him my problem and he told me to open the ACV and check to see if the metal disc had slipped down a little while I was reinstalling the valve. I loosened the three nuts on the valve and sure enough the disc was not flush with the intake manifold (I could tell because it left an imprint in the black carbon build-up). I tried to pull the metal disc up with a screw driver but the disc kept falling back down. In order to make the disc stay in place, I had to remove the solenoid rack (again) and pull the valve completely off. Next, I put a little rubber cement around the disc (from the advice of Dave) to give the piece a little tackiness so it wouldn\'t fall off again. After reassembling everything, another sore back, and much frustration the car runs perfect with no annoying chirps.
I also learned in the process (from Dave) that the ACV is only active between 2000 and 4500 rpm which is what clued him in to the problem. I can also remove the intake plenum in about 15 minutes but I hope to never have to remove it again. Anyway, I just thought you might want to mention something about the ACV disc to save someone else the headache of having to remove the solenoid rack twice. Once, as you know, is plenty.

^^^^^That means nothing to me and really dont have a clue what hes talking about but the problem sounds similair...^^^^^^^^ (Or is that just me being thick)

John (Warthog) had the same problem a few years ago and said it was something that could only be done under the me it sounds like an actuator on the turbo...

Tmrw im gona check all the one way check valves to see if thats the problem...but i thought id best post incase its something simple to fix

O ye great FD guru\'s...please helpeth me in my hour of need...

3rd generation RX-7's / We have Heat!!!! Thx RX Motors!!!!
« on: October 09, 2007, 11:55:01 PM »
After over a year without a heater...WE HAVE HEAT!!!! I really have to thank Matt @ RX Motors for the great job he did on the heater matrix today. (Although i do have 3 minor rattles now :Hammer )

After a 8 hour drive in sh!tty sh!tty weather from home to Tims with the windows steamed up all the way down...blasting COLD air into the cabin just to be able to see!

It was well worth the manic drive just to see actual human, wriggle, writhe & squirm actually inside of the FD dashboard :Laugh

Anyway it has to be a world record! 2 Hours 12 mins for a Heater matrix replacement and Aircon matrix ditch...

:cheers Big up Matt!!:cheers

I went to the Instructor College today. Iv not really researched it but iv been thinking about it for a while.

Anyway i thought id give them a ring and see what its all about. I went down and went through the meeting, when they explain whats involved. It all looks pretty decent.

I know locally there arent enough instructors never mind young asian instructors. So financially i think its viable. Iv taught a few people locally how to drive and they all say to go for it.

But £3495 is a sh!tload of money for something thats gona take you 4-6 months to gain the qualification to be able to use it. Id have to use my dad cc to pay for it so i dont wanna fcuk up...:Hammer

Out of everything i know i can do, or cant do, i know im a good driver. Call it arrogance if you like but thats what i think im best at.

Anyway i know there are a couple of you on here so any advice would be great

General Technical / Compressor Surge
« on: September 28, 2007, 08:09:34 PM »
Following on from another thread...

Does comp surge actually happen on twins? With stock re-circ valves does it happen? If the wastegate is ported will it cause it?

Wastegate chatter/compressor surge is there any way to replicate the sound safely?

I have comp surge on the yellow car and its such a gorgeous sound, i just want it on the Rz aswell :p

I know its the compressor wheel stalling etc etc but hey it sounds cool :p

P.S - I know we\'ve had this thread before on but i thought id bring it up again

« on: September 20, 2007, 06:14:11 PM »
When im in traffic im seeing crazy intake temps! Water temps and Oil temps are fine!

Iv got a HKS FMIC and iv relocated my primary filter to my side light to have a ram air effect...i.e under the front drivers headlight...

Im thinking of butchering my bonnet to let the heat escape but been told it can have an adverse effect when the car is on the open road...

WI is next on the agenda but atm i dont have a penny to my name, so that will have to wait :Hammer
