very nice mate glad your enjoying it atm



Air Filter relocation will be a good mod to start with get some cool air to it. if your planning on getting a little more power and not spending to much buy a FCD and up the boost slighty maybe a front mount intercooler to....



look forward to the updates

yea loving it mate,it was a choice between a Vtec an the GT & im sure i made the right choice lol..



i wanna stick with the top mount to be honest i prefer it looks wise an dont really wanna cut into the bumper! :/ im thinkin of getting a greddy emanage blue and greddy evc for upping the boost becos if i do eventually go tdo4 or even hybrid ile need the management anyway..trying to invest wisely for the future too lol



im just waiting on the exhaust arriving its the last piece of my jigsaw lol i went for the twin-pipe look,somethin different.. have the relocation kit ready 2 go on and rx-7 tmic arrived today :D delighted! but i want it put together in one day so im holding off :)


ile put up a few pics an vids when ther fitted!

i like the plans you got going atm i'd speak to some of the other guys on here they have alot more knowledge than i do but RBZ has his running pretty sweet and he is'nt runnin an aftermarket ecu if you go for a TD04 just set it to 1.0 bar on a adjustable actuator and get a manual boost controller set that up..and set up the fueling with a FPR should be ok ....theres a few other things need but it's pretty simple

like the plans anyway mate look forward to more updates :)

My fmic fits lovely behind the bumper and managed to keep the bumper in tact, its barely visable which is all good :)

I do love black 82's

Its a hard call Spoon btwn management and RRFPR/FCD, there both gonna skin me around 130-150..its a bit of a long way off just now anyway :(


although i love the idea of a manual boost controller, i always pictured having set boost modes, one for casual driving and one for racing.. but manual wud be more fun definately lol..



Ile have a wee look at yours Towbar and see how it fits :) Love the 82's myself woulda loved a grey/silver colour...blacks so hard to keep clean :(

I'd rather go down the emb route and a ct9 hybrid. Will make a nice responsive car. It's nice when you get them near enough standard. Mine only came with sard r2d2 bov, jap exhaust, rsr panhard rod, tein coilys handlers so well and a hks turbo timer all done over in jap land apart from the bov

110% mate i think its the best option! id prefer emb over RRFPR's anyday and definately a hybrid for quicker response than the tdo4..im slowly going off the idea purely for response/lag resons! lol

It's a HTA GT35 and that's shorty in the pic, he gets excited over it haha

Really nice base to start from. Takes time to get them how you want. Just leave room at the end of the list for the emb or other form of management. Will be much better to drive on

Gave the RX-7 intercooler a polish and fitted it today! :) Definately miss the old Turbo casing already lol





DSC00259_zps0b9f9738.jpg



Not a dent on the fins, quicker response i think after trying it out! Adding this and the swap for ct9b turbo shud make for quick spool :)



Changed the filter and oil again for more Millers 10W50.

After a good test run to make sure everything was tight and secure, no leaks or bown off pipes = result!

Tuning Developments actuator arrived today, managed to get it set it to 12psi! Feels far quicker over stock and boost feels longer :D


Gotta love more boost lol
