  1. Hello with query lol

    No first hand information myself but there are discussions on the Irish Rotary FB page. A 1994 was recently imported with a VRT bill of €4k and not sure how the appeal process is going but you can be sure a 01 will attract at minimum the same if closer to 6k. Use UK values of 01 FDs as a guide for OMSP and then apply the calculations that Revenue use and I'd say you won't be far from the VRT bill
  2. Irish/UK RX7 breaking?

    Spotted that and had that thought. Tried adding my name to the list and needed moderator approval. Must check again actually. Hope it's made soon, I've the AEM kit sitting in the shed, should be fitted in the new year!
  3. Irish/UK RX7 breaking?

    I've spent the last hour reading the thread. I'll be worth it if it comes in around the $200 mark. I've my name added to the list!
  4. Irish/UK RX7 breaking?

    Ya seen it. Bit expensive but thinking I might just go with it as the most discreet option. Must see where this project is at
  5. FD Injectors

    The kinda advice and outcome I was thinking. I'll get the Injectors tested. Been so long since I had the car running I don't know own what the duty cycle of the PFC was. I'll drop a new fuel pump too to be safe. I see some using Supra and GTR ones, any reason? Need a FPR upgrade with a new fuel pump or can I just bang a Walbro on, wire it up and forget about it.
  6. I posted on this thread but realised it's a wanted ad so starting a new thread to make sure it's visible. I currently have the LIM and UIM off for fitting new gaskets and while I'm here, looking at if I should do anything with injectors. Car will be running a kinda OEM+ type spec, more for reliability than anything. Newly rebuilt twins, downpipe, Decat and exhaust. Radtech V-mount. AEM coils, AEM water injection. Power FC. With this in mind and the benefit of knowledge gained over the time the previous thread was initially started, what are thoughts on the fuel system for a mild modded car. If the idea is to remain on stock injectors, I'll get them flow tested. Any recommendations, I see Westward bench testing injectors recently... Standard fuel pump ok with the hard wire mod?
  7. Irish/UK RX7 breaking?

    Cheers, rocking horse sh!t kinda stuff. Had come across that list before and had tried Searching some of those countries. Would love to unearth a European spec rear window washer to use for my water injection set up
  8. Going to bump this thread rather than start a new and very similar one.

  9. FD OEM Skirts

    Let me know if you want to have a look at them some day.
  10. FD OEM Skirts

    Cheers. Struggled to price them and think they're fair at that.
  11. FD OEM Skirts

    Considering selling my OEM Side Skirts. In fair condition, will certainly need paint and some repair work. Paint is cracked and some small cracks in the side skirts. Need €200 to consider selling them which I think is fair as they don't appear too often.
  12. Blitz SUS intake for twins

    Bump. Open to offers
  13. Engine mounts

    Bought some Land Rover ones recently. Not sure I'll sue them. Standard mounts are close to 50mm thick and the land rover ones are not much more than 35mm. Too much of a difference I think. I see some on FDUK reporting bits fouling on hard acceleration etc...
