Wheels & Tyres, Suspension & Brakes / Suspension Q\'s
« on: November 04, 2005, 04:06:21 PM »
When it comes to suspention I know very very little so have some question I would like answered.

Now, I know that there is the main suspension, shocks and springs but what else is there on the FD, front and rear. I mean by this trailing arms, suspension bushes and mounts, I know why its all there but not what each part actually does (if you get my meaning). Could someone give me a breakdown of the cars suspension,

i.e. Trailing arm - front suspension of car, does ......., benifit of replaceing it? Rough cost of a replacemet, how many there are, etc etc.

I hope someone knows what im trying to ask.

General Technical / Apexi PFC readings?
« on: October 29, 2005, 09:08:44 PM »
I took my car out today for a right good seeing to! Red lined in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
What do you think about the readings? Ignore the water temp as that was when I started it up. The water temps were about 95.

Inj Duty = 86.3%
IgnT Ld = 51deg
IgnT Tr = 51deg
Eng Rev = 7515rpm
Air Temp = 60degC
Boost = +0.76kg/cm2
Knock = 43
Wtr Temp = 104degC

They seem okay? I think the inj duty is a bit high.

General Technical / Greddy pully kit?
« on: October 17, 2005, 01:52:13 PM »
When removing the air pump you need to fit a pully kit. Im looking to get a Greddy one. What one is it though. I saw on rx7.com a 2 and 3 piece kit.

I am 99% sure it is just the greddy 2 piece kit as im removing the air pump but I thought id make sure!

General Technical / Greddy SMIC
« on: October 10, 2005, 05:24:43 PM »
Well I took the plunge and bought a Greddy SMIC from the US. I have managed to get it for £400 shipped. Its meant to be in good condition so fingers crossed all is good.

Who has a Greddy SMIC fitted? Could I get some pictures posted.
What is involved when fitting it? And will I need to get the car remapped (I think the answer is, of corse not but im not 100%)

Anything Engine/Performance/Tuning related / fueling
« on: October 08, 2005, 01:31:37 PM »
Im thinking of doing some additional mods to my car. This is just thought at the moment.
I am thinking of going non sequential and fitting an SMIC and maybe adding WI.

If I do this Im sure the fueling will need looked at. I think all I need is 1300 secondaries, fuel pump and fuel regulater (would the regulater be needed?)
Is this correct? What cost would there be to but this and install it? I know I would need a remap too.

3rd generation RX-7's / What to do next?
« on: October 06, 2005, 01:48:42 PM »
Im looking for some ideas on what I can do with my car next.
I will be working with a very limited budget but end of next year the cars paid off so that will free up some more ££££

Currently my car has:
Apexi PFC
M2 Intake (carbon box with 2 K&N filters)
Silenced De CAT
Blitz back box

Now, Im sure I have a problem with the stock twins but Pip managed to map the car (with a strange map he said) and get 300 at the fly (and his Dyno at the time was known for reading on the fairly low side).
I think I should get them taken out and sorted but I don\'t want to spend more cash getting them out only to find no fault there. What other option would I have instead (not really interested in going single at the moment).
Next I think I should turn my attention to a SMIC. I don\'t do much miles, nor do I race the car in any way, so im happy with a SMIC. Any reason why I should not go for a SMIC?

What else could/should I be looking at??? I am interested in getting some more horses out of it but done very safe. Its a major pain in the ass driving to WGT as its a 6-7 hour drive for me just to get there.

Ideas please!

I decided the previous straight through mid pipe was too loud so I decided to buy a silenced decat.
It was about time I fitted it so tonight was the night. Went well apart from that one bolt that decided to **** me off a little  :rolleyes:
No skint hands etc but then again it is a simple job.
I was surprised that there is a small gap between the metal flanges after it was all put back. There are no gaskets, and was told I did not need any??? The car stinks under due to the gap, but then the gasses are escaping at the mid pipe so when it come to MOT time it should pass as all the gasses are out before it get to the back box  :D
I was a little unsure about my jaking points so took some pictures. Have a look and let me know if they were fine.

Anything Engine/Performance/Tuning related / Another oil question
« on: July 29, 2005, 06:07:50 PM »
This question however is for those of you that used to use castrol oil. The mineral oil (blue strip), not the synthetic oil (yellow strip) for modern engines (as it reads on the bottle)

The oil is now called GTX high mileage mineral oil (for engines with 70\'000miles blah blah...)?
As the oil is now got anti wear additives im not keen on using it. If you are the same what oil have you changed too??
