3rd generation RX-7's / Look What some ....... did!
« on: May 24, 2003, 07:09:53 PM »
Great eh, had the car 2 weeks and then find someone has done this!
Any ideas if this is the sort of thing a valet company, or chipsaway type place could deal with? The scrapes are not that deep but its not great.
As you can imagine im well f**ked off!

General Technical / Front Side Lights
« on: May 18, 2003, 03:11:34 PM »
Hi there,
Im wondering how best to clean up my front side lights. Im a bit reluctant to remove then as I think they are sealed on?? Is it best just to remove & clean or what?
Any ideas would be great.


General Technical / Back Fire!
« on: May 11, 2003, 06:02:45 PM »
I\'ll be quick with this one as im sure it\'s fine.

A little pop, bang (Back fire) normal with thr RX7? Its got a wide bore back box on it made by WGT.

Another question, with the addition of the back box, will this of added a couple of bhp? or just freed it up a little at the top end, speed wise?

Finaly an owner
:D   :D   :D

3rd generation RX-7's / My Car
« on: May 08, 2003, 12:48:50 PM »
Well tomorrow I pick my car up! It\'s taken a while but I will now have a \'94 RX7 type-R with a rebuild engine from RX Motors. I also got an aluminium AST fitted, just in case. And I\'ve bought a strut brace for the engine, just got to fit in when I get the car.
Here are a few picture\'s, looks a little dull in the pics though.

I\'ll be a happy man tomorrow.  :D   :D   :D

3rd generation RX-7's / Wing Mirrors
« on: May 04, 2003, 06:30:30 PM »
Quick question,
Do all 3rd Gen\'s have electric folding wing mirrors or was this an option at new?


ok guy\'s ive a problem, im not sure what RX7 I should go for.
I\'ve been looking at getting an RX7 from down south, the car has been in the country for 3 years. It is currently getting a rebuild engine from RX Motors, new clutch, replaced vacuum hoses. Its a 94 type-R with 49K miles on the clock. Ive been looking into this car for months now. I know another guy on this site looked at it after me so I wont say the price im offering. The down side is that its bog standard, no alloys nothing, its also the metallic green/blue colour. I was really after black. The car looks great and my head says go for it, but........................
I came accross this car for sale, its got a fibre glass hood, with the slats at the top of the hood (MazdaSpeed copy I think, possibly the real thing), its got MS-02\'s etc (Spec of car: Air Con,Electric Mirrors,Electric Windows,Power Steering,Alloy Wheels,After Market Stereo,CD,Mini Disc,Driving Lights,After Market Exhaust,After Market Induction Kit,After Market Suspension,Turbo Timer,Rear Spoiler,Tinted Windows) the thing that worries me about this car is that it has no ECU. I thought with these mods that would result in it running lean???? Also it was given a grade of B, I was told due to the replacement hood!!!! (Think thats right Ill check the email at work tom.) Does not sound right to me. I contacted the company selling it, and said what about a condition of sale being placed on it; sale subject to pasing a compression test. They are fine with that. Now my heart says go for it, it looks great! And should the engine go "POP" i\'ll sell the aloys to Henning to cover the rebuilt, (Only joking mate). What do you guys think????
I think I know what ill be doing but maybe some other thoughts may change mine.
