Well for those of us who had a bit of a trek - Just got back to Manchester now.

I can safely say that the lads who came in the back of my fd for the 350 mile trip would never allow themselves to fall in the same hole twice. Must have been cramped in the back seats. :rollin

Anyway, heres a pic I took of the track session. Got in trouble for climbing the flag pole.. oh well :D

ps  Nice fd scooby.

Sorry, its all been translated from Jap. Says boost can be set till 1.2 bar. So, I\'m assuming its not set at that, or if it is, can it be easily set to run at lower bar of boost? Whats the norm setting of boost on a single?

I\'m really also, after knowing that the above mods are reliable.

Thanks for the advice.

Would you consider it a risk without a compression test, as it may be hard to do? It has had a recent rebuild.

Also, is the life span of the engine shortened significantly by running a single?

Thanks a lot

Congratulations mate. Hope it gives you plenty pleasure.

The mileage seems pretty good, still time till rebuild but depends how standard its been kept.

I think the plastic splitter was an extra on the RX-7\'s. Makes such a big difference to appearance in my opinion so make sure you get one on. :p

Lots of dodgy warranties flying around, best make sure it covers rebuild on rotaries. Some say they would but dont!

No need for de registration document really. If its already registered here. Then again, wouldnt hurt to have a copy just incase.

Hi,

Just wondering if any of you people can help with a couple of q\'s.

I\'m being offered from a friend a single fd with the following spec; what would you guys make of it? Hows the turbo size?

Also, what would put the fuel consumption down to on a single fd?


TD06-25G Turbo
Engine rebuilt 2000 km\'s ago and thats when turbo conversion and mods took place.
No repairs done
5 Spd MT
Mazda Speed Twin Bosch pump 850cc injector
West Gate Apex Intercooler
Apex Radiator
Power FC
FC Commander
Tein Height adjuster
Boost Meter
Plug cord NGK
Profec B - spec ...Boost can be set to 1,2 Commander.
Commander Lock not put but can be put later
Boost Meter White Thrust
Catalyst Air Pump etc not available
HP never measured but probably 430 to 450
Brakes are after market
Diff maybe normal torsen

Basically, I have a stock twin turbo with stage 1 mods at present, but looking for something that would gve the likes of scooby wr1\'s fq330\'s a run for its money.


Cheers

Just a thought.  :yes

Is there any way of telling from a picture of the engine bay if an fd is a standard twin turbo or a single turbo conversion?

Thanks
