    My First FD.. New to everything

    Thanks.. its been a long time since I had a blue car and its a great blue so had to hold out for one, yea I'm making my way through it slowly and hearing the same things from a few people along the same idea's.. but like a lot of things, just look after it and maintain it and they should treat us well. The two stroke in the fuel is a new one though, here is a couple more bad photos also, hopefully get some nice ones soon. Its fairly standard to be honest and seems to work very well, so want to go the right way about modding it and just take my time, so far it has a buddyclub axle back and blitz air filters, some mister r coilovers with nice mazdaspeed wheels made by rays, a pair of apexi gauges and a few things like vac lines and clutch just done.. the sound is just so nice out of it, very addictive to drive lol. maybe a silly question but here we go.. do all the fd's have pre-cat pipes? cause I hear they cause bother, and I assume if I put a downpipe and b section in its still fine to drive on the standard map and ecu? Thanks.

    My First FD.. New to everything

    Hey guys and girls if any... not sure if they're smarter than us men for getting involved with these cars lol.. I've been a Honda man for many of years and into cars in general for aslong as I can remember but there has always been something special with the whole rx7 saga for me.. as I'm getting older and closer to the old 30 I thought it was about time to take the leap.. I've lots to learn and ready for it.. After many months searching and weighing up pros and cons I've ended up with a 1999 IBP rb-s.. so far ive done around 600 miles with only getting it home recently and loved them all.. all help and tips for a newbie are welcome.. I'm up in N.Ireland so I'm not too far away and will get down for a few meets and shows.. don't have many photos yet but here it is.. Thanks

    Rx8 help

    >You said the cat is not tested so can I replace it with straight pipe ? Yes you can in Republic of Ireland with NCT. It will bring up an intermittent fault check engine light, which can be mapped out by littlefeck.. Most just knock out the contents and leave the old pipe. It might affect your insurance if it is counted as a modification. Have a look here: Little fecks details are on there. He has a day job so best to meet him evening weekends: Name: Jamie Location: Athy, Co. Kildare Contact: 0857202383 He is only a 20 min drive from yourself. If you arranged with him to have the car at his place early some Saturday that would give him the daylight and the time to give it a once over. A couple of hours would cost less than a coilpack. give him a bell. That would be my advice

    I’ve swapped the wheels for a spare set of r32 GTRs, but the fronts don’t clear the brakes

    Rebuild Cost

    Hi welcome to the forum Lurch Build it once and do it right. Don't skimp and For parts buy from Mazda Rotary Parts if you plan on doing it yourself, for me I wount buy anywhere else. Otherwise Shadow Rotary to get the right parts designed for the RX8 assembled correctly for your fresh rebuild. Also budget about 3k for a rebuild to be safe, keep in mind its best to have a good ignition system on top of that which is about 400 notes. You could be looking at more or less than that it will depend on what parts is needed for the rebuild when stripped down. Again Don't skimp and do your homework right otherwise you will end up been a very dissatisfied RX8 owner

    So I took these off the number 2 RX8, trust me these pulleys really do feel light, little clean and they will be bling

    Hi all, If anyone out there is thinking of going down the D585 setup and you don't have the €450 plus to spare, why not build your own rig? I did. Below are links to where I made my purchases, Total cost €196.21 Made my own bracket. Cost less than a €10. Woodies DIY. Based on Bennetbuilt Performance Bracket. I've put a photo of them in the Gallery under Member Cars "Carl (Chazz) RX8" Coil Packs 4 x D585 - €89.62 (Depends on US$ Exchange rate on the day) includes postage. http://stores.ebay.i...=p2047675.l2563 8mm Ferroflex D585 Leads – €48.50 (Depends on STG£ Exchange rate on the day) includes postage. Link to his eBay Shop. NOTE: this guy makes them himself, so they’re not cheap Chinese knock offs - Mr-Retro-Leads-Plugs http://www.ebay.ie/itm/MAZDA-RX-8-RX8-231-192-PS-D585-COIL-PACK-IGNITION-LEADS-8m-FERROFLEX-PERFORMANCE-/121565484185 D585 RX8 Harness Adapter – €58.00 (Depend on US$ Exchange Rate on the day) includes postage. Link to his eBay shop - OBD Innovations Store http://www.ebay.ie/itm/GM-LS2-Yukon-Truck-Ignition-Coils-to-Mazda-RX-8-RX8-Harness-Adapter-/331496075491?hash=item4d2eb4b0e3 If you don’t want to have a go at building your own bracket you can get one from Bennettbuilt Performance. Below is the link to their Bracket. €102 (Depends on US$ Exchange rate on the day) includes postage. http://www.bennettbuilt.net/products/rx8-ls2-d585-coil-mounting-bracket So buying all the parts yourself from various suppliers above, (NOT building you own bracket), will cost approx. €298.12 – again, depends on the Exchange rate on the day. You could buy the complete kit from Bennettbuilt Performance for €363 includes postage. Either way you’ll save €€€€€€’s That's all Folks!
