Still getting lean AFR's at light throttle 5k ish revs.
Can someone measure the distance between the MAF screens please?
I'm wondering if I have them spaces too far apart.
Is rx8oc down?

Ended up getting a rx8 air box and in the middle of putting it in.
Unfortunately to get the rx8 airbox to fit, I needed to refit the mx5 fuse box.
Lots of silent sobbing going on in my head at the moment. One of those jobs you wish you didn't start

I would have rather modified the air box than mess with the rats nest of wiring

Any news Paul? Big job but worth it! I was delighted when Westy and Clives started  first go after chop chop of looms.

I have 1 more relay to swap over. That's the starter relay. Unfortunately it's bigger than that the mx5 item so need to create a relay holder.

The ignition IG fuse 40A caused a bit of confusion. The mx5 setup doesn't have this fuse

All the rest is done. Next job is to reroute the wiring so it fits into the fuse box

That's the rx8 fuse boards out.
Now just to tie up a few loose ends and tidy up all the wiring

Don't suppose you know the width between the chassis legs in the engine bay do you? I'm away at work for the week and trying to measure up for fitting a rad and fuel cell in there but forgot to. Measure  how much room I have available

Thanks
