3rd generation RX-7's / Re: RS Power Projects 20B see's the light!
« on: February 04, 2017, 08:36:07 PM »
So I finally caved in and joined facebook. Mainly for car stuff. So as well as my website I now have a facebook page which you can find @rspowerprojects. I hope some of you will follow me and help motivate me through the final big push to get this thing on the road!
See you on the other side!

Still have these if anyone wants spares? 20B bits don't come about everyday!

Pair of Mazda RX8 18" Wheels 5x114 fitted with 225/40/18 tyres. One is a kenda Kaiser with lots of meat left on. The other is a Potenza which is about half worn. Wheels are straight and true with no cracks. A few small kurb marks and could do with a clean up but good other than that.
£50 the pair collected.

Hi Guy's thanks for info.. The dip in rpm is quite minimal when the loads are switched on. it is more the drag down on the voltage which effects the injectors I think as the ECU does not have proper voltage compensation. bit of both though for sure. I was going to raise the idle a bit to try and help but I don't think that alone will solve the issue. Also when you put the loads on the rpm normalises after a few seconds so to try and set idle that way would be quite a trick.
Fuel pump wise I have one of those neat new walbro 450lph ones... Well will see if it keeps up when I get it wound up on the dyno!

So guy's, I have a idle control issue with my microtech ECU where it is essentially a bit basic and does not have some quite key functions. So I want to try and plug something in to create a work around for the main issue I currently have. That is poor idle due to voltage drop when any electrical loads are applied such as fans.
The work around I want is this. I want a wire something in off the back of the alternator or any other 12V wire I guess that reads the voltage which under normal running will be around 14.2 volts with a good battery. if the voltage temporarily drops down to say 13.8V when a load is switched on I then want this to flip a switch which will allow a 12v supply to be sent to an input on the ECU. Then when the voltage picks back up the switch will flip back and close off the 12v source to the ECU. I hope that makes sense. I think this should also only happen when at idle so I guess that means wiring a microswitch onto the throttle pedal or throttle body that is on/off when the throttle is closed.
Can anyone advise if there is any off the shelf item that will do this or if I need to make something and if so what components am I looking at?
One other thing is ideally I want to be able to adjust the voltage that the switch flips at in order to fine tune the point at which this needs to happen.

Thanks for any help.

Will check it out.. Don't panic.. If I was removing metal it would only be if it was a tiny amount to gain clearance.. a couple of mm wouldn't hurt. but I would entertain anymore and it depends on access and stuff anyway. Will take a look at the weekend now.

Okay.. I will check it out.. Even if I need to get in a grind a little bit off the hub with a dremel it saves a hell of a lot of work.

 Gather this now after much reading!! What is the chance of getting the hub of clean without buggering the bearing?!

In which case I need to fit longer studs then to be safe and run 10mm spacers. any thicker will be too much. Am I correct in reading the only way to get the studs out is take the hub off or can you put a hole in the back plate or something and get them out in situe?
Hub off does not sound like a fun job as largely it sounds like the bearings stick on and you need to replace all that as well?

I hate the thought of wheel spacers but need some wheels for my car ad the ones I want will require 10mm slip on spacers on the back of the car. What are the thoughts about running this on an FD? Will I need longer studs in the hub and if so how much of a pain in the butt are they to swap out? Hub off or can you do it by just taking the caliper and disc off?

Advice please.
Thank you

Okay.. Well my capacitors arrived today.. So I will resolder all the joints and give that w whirl.My symptoms seem a it different to the ones I read. my counters goes all the way around and all sorts of crazy stuff!

Sorry to drag this up.. What Symptom of failing did your rev counter have? The link you posted doesn't work s I don't know if you have found the same as me and have the same issue? As soon as you turn the ignition on the rev count starts flipping out all over the places. Sometimes it stops. then it might work or a bit.. then it just goes wild again!
Found instructions on replacing a couple of capacitors and re-soldering connections.
Sound familiar?
Or do I need to be looking at something else like a short somewhere?
