Jan's Gen 3 RX7 thread
« on: March 30, 2017, 09:07:46 PM »
I did a quick introduction but thought I need to start a build thread as well. Had it for 2 months now and absolutely love it. Quick spec and upgrades that I'm aware of:
1993 RX7 Efini edition. Think it's a Type R model but not sure. Imported in 2007.
Current mileage: 82500 (Engine rebuild @ 81853 in April 2016)
Streetport
Greddy Airinx induction kit
Larger intercooler - Unknown make
Aftermarket exhaust with a massive backbox - Unknown make
Apexi ECU with FC commander
Aftermarket clutch - Unknown make

Original Rays Evolution 4 alloys - 18 inch staggered with 235/35 on the front and 265/35 on the back - Needs a refurb to get them perfect
Aftermarket bodykit. Think it's a D1 spec but not sure
Very good aftermarket alarm immobiliser with perimeter sensors and auto door lock and some other features
Bodywork is near mint. Interior is not bad but not perfect
Engine bay is load better now. It had an old grubby air filter and rusty plate in there. This has now been removed and replaced with some new kit
It's just about run in and will be going to WK Auto Solutions for proper mapping. Think it's running very rich at the moment.

Thanks. Still few bits that needs sorting. Bit more engine bay clean-up. Some rusty brackets needs painting.
Only noticed yesterday that I actually have a quick release steering wheel

Also it's fitted with a set of fully adjustable coilovers which I was not aware of.  Just keeps getting better
