1/  THIS IS AN UP DATE IN FULL AS AT 20th Sept 2016  About the car



This system is a FCON/( IS) ECU THAT RUNS THE FULL fuel and ENGINE management system
HKS fcon/ IS, ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM now has been fully installed by TDI LONDON

The HKS FCON (is), has been selected as the choice of aftermarket ECU’s for the management of fuel and ignition timing for this application because it is comes with a high quality harness to make connectivity a simple operation, and it's level of quality and functionality is extremely high.

The main features of the FCON (is) :result of methodical testing it has been concluded that the HKS FCON (,is) is a cost effective optimum installation enhanced upgrade solution on the Mazda RX8. (AT that TIME)

 Full figures and mapping results will become available ( these were posted 2010 after new engine installed )the figures from a before HKS was fitted just the supercharger engine and remap (of  six independent tests) and the after figures that TDI has done with the new HKS system fitted the rest of the cars systems is still dealt with the cars original ECU there is quite a remarkable difference.

Thanks for taking the time to look,  sorry for the grammar and spelling but follow the photos and you will get the Gist   ;)


last but not least a big thank you to all who helped me on this project with out you I would have never got there thanks again

re japi:
Damn. I just love that 8!  :P

That list of mods is impressive and long. Well done. :)

boosted:
Its 1 of the most unique 8s ive seen and a huge amount of work im defo making a b line for it at Japfest so i can see it in the flesh! great work and passion!

exiled-viking:
thanks chaps it looks better in the photos believe me theres a lot of stone chips and daily where now but its 9 years old I try to keep it looking good but photo shop helps ???

exiled-viking:
Around 3 months ago I decided to fabricate my own Under-tray this was because there was nothing out there for the price I was willing to pay.
 And that I would have ended up modding it to get what I was after, So I needed it to be around 2mm gauge aluminium have two inspection hatchers to get at various parts of the rear front bumper.
Also to add a little more strength, air flow, and air flow up into the superchargers intercoolers also I wanted it to be removable with two plastic grommets, and 8 spire clips it is  now removable in around 5 minutes.

All done for a little Under £40.00 parts and aluminium off eBay with free delivery  :D





First get your aluminium put the old under Tray on the ally and scribe around the tray and all the mounting holes

1/ 

cut around you scribe marks

2/

you should end up something like this  I trimmed mine with some rubber seal

3/

I then started Fabricating my bespoke parts then started making the sump Under tray

move one

4/


Holes cut starting to work out what needs to go in and where

5/

Once all the parts are made I started putting it together made the vents to size added seal, then pop riveted the vents on along with the air deflector.

The Inspection hatchers at the front have 4 spire clips fitted (2 per Hatch ) so if you slacken one off and remove the other screw then the hatch can be opened with out having to fully remove it.

6/



7/

Road view of UnderTray,s   ^^^






I used M6 spire clips to fix this to the car x 8 and flat head screw bolts







Fits like a glove good project for a Sunday Afternoon  thank you for taking the time to look :wink:  :thumleft:
