3rd generation RX-7's / Whats she worth
« on: July 21, 2010, 03:29:16 PM »
hey guys after 4 years of ownership im going to be selling my rex due to buying my first house and cant afford it as my daily drive sad times, i wish i could keep her i love it so much,
I would like you guys to tell me what you think it is worth.

Its a 93 red fd3, Its done 113km and was rebuilt by jason at super7 about 5k ago, Had a recent service at howard rotory which turned up no problems and the compresson test came up with 7 all round so a strong engine,

Ive had wider front aches put on and a 99 rear spoiler added some red leather seats, i bought 19\' alloys for 2k ( which i have curbed over the years)

The engine is standard with a just a dump valve

Its had a full respray b4 i bought it (no prove), The rear wiper and boot lid key was blended in, paint work still very good no pinking,

Inside it in very good con few little bits added, cubby hole ashray and tray under the jvc dvd player head unit,

Wil add more detail when i put it up for sale in the next few months just after what you guys feel it is worth

Photos taken today

Thanks for any help all comments welcome

Anything Engine/Performance/Tuning related / remap needed?
« on: October 21, 2009, 03:40:35 PM »
hey guys im thinking of geting my rex remapped but i dont know anything about it. The cars running rich this is the main reason i was thinking it needs a map i stuggle to get it through mots, but its also only running 240 bhp which as far as i know is under powered, i got a 93 fd3 standard engine and its only boosting up to 0.8 this normal? would a remap help?

General Technical / ecu\'s????
« on: July 12, 2009, 06:15:52 PM »
having just failed my mot on emissons i was wondering if my ecu could be the reason. i was told by super7 i have a knights sports ecu would this be y its running rich and making my emssions to high? was wondering if i got a standard ecu woud this sort it out? my rx7 is standard only a dump valve and hks back box. i also rolling roaded it and i was bit down on power only made 245 would a standard ecu maybe sort this out to? this is just a idea would it work? not sure y the ecu is knights sports if its just standard anyway, knights sports any good?
