  1. Driftworks do hsds
  2. U can get rid of it and blank the opening
  3. The firsts. Lower turbine a/r and larger comp wheel. All down to personal preference of what you want of course.
  4. Don't reuse those springs. The seals themselves could do with being replaced as well.
  5. Engine number is below the tab where the hoisting bracket is bolted on the front plate. Yes 92fd is the same engine as 93-95. They were only available in the US from 93 to 95. You will need to measure the eccentric shaft using a micrometer and select bearings based on this.
  6. The colour is used to indicate the tolerance on the bearing. See link below. Check ur eccentric shaft for what bearing u need. Yellow is commonly used as it is a loose fit. https://www.mazdatrix.com/faq/bearingfaq.htm
  7. You won't need the injector diffusers if it going single with 500hp the target. You need injectors with good atomization from the nozzle
  8. The diffusers come with the atkins master rebuild kit. Personally I wouldn't use second had ones as the plastic does get brittle and can be damaged when pushing them out. If it breaks off the plastic will go straight into your engine.
  9. Don't need any solenoid if you're going single. Just measure everything to the fsm. Check for flaking of the chrome around the borders of the housing and seal chatter all round the housing.
  10. You take the lot out.
  11. If you are doing a full bridge engine you will need single piece apex seals. 2 piece will work with a half bridge but they have to be installed differently to the fsm. If you are bridge porting it won't run with a standard ecu. idle will be 1500rpm+. You will need to have the rotors lightened and clearancedo if you want to run higher rpm or you will get rotor slap. A bridge port with a higher rpm limit will need a big single turbo. this will also-ran mean a fuel system upgrade. Vrt will be cheap compared to the rest of the work.
  12. Hi Folks, Looking for a very good condition front plate for an FD engine. Leave me know if you have anything. Thanks
  13. Take it apart and measure it using the FSM as a reference. If the coolant is leaking into the engine everything may have rusted. If your not splitting it immediately, empty the coolant out of it and run oil through the intake ports while turning it over.
