Thanks.

Hi,

I have had my RX7 for a couple of years now, its been a real labour of love

It's a 1992 FD
since i have had it, I have done some things.

Here s the car the day i got it

It has had a bit of a hit in the front and bent the rail and needs a rad support

I quickly set around to stripping the car down and repairing the accident damage

pulling it straight


Here you can see where the rail was kinked

Pretty straight now

Radiator support panel is off now and the chassis measuring system is under the car


Here is a copy of the data sheet that shows where all the points in the car should be


Test fitting before welding


Welded and fitted, ready for the insides to be painted.



Continued in the next post...

At this point the engine went back in.


I got another bumper and test fitted some bits I was planning to run on the body.


Got myself a new computer.


Did some wiring


Got it to run. (completely untuned)
(not sure if youtube works on the BB here)
First run and idle - YouTube

When I got the car it was running on the factory ecu. It had the OMP removed and a single HT18 turbo. there were alot of loose bolts and dodgy things in the engine bay.
I got myself a Nightsports T04b hybrid upgrade for the turbo as i wanted to keep things small and responsive on the road.


So this is the way she was when it went off for the first setup and tune.

Locked and loaded for tune


Man, I wish my shed had exhaust pipes!!


Setting up pre dyno


loaded up



Here is a little video while doing some lower range runs (not very exciting)


Sadly the enlarged internal wastegate on the turbo was too small and was giving some boost spikes up to a bar, not ideally where i would like it
so we gave up on the tuning for the day and i'll have made a new manifold with a 60mm external wastegate and do it all over again.

Not that it matters much but this is the chart.

there is plenty more to be done.

Can't see the pics and not loading some unknown "fix" for it. Good luck with the build.
