  1. sorry its miles.corrick@eurocarparts.com, forgot the car bit
  2. try miles.corrick@europarts.com, he did me a great deal on powerflex bushes front and rear for i think 350?? i got the 6 pillow balls from rhd japan, j-auto in the states do an aftermarket version
  3. if its driven every now and then and youve had it since may perhaps the fuel in the tank has gone bad, which could be one of the issues, best drain it and put fresh fuel in, does it have alot of white smoke on start up? you can do a champagne test on start up, just fill the filler neck up to the top and start it up u should see bubbles straight away its got seal failure, blue smoke would indicate oil and it does look like its over fueling alot, if its on 1 rotor then one of the chambers wouldnt be firing and plugs would have fuel on them , always best to get a compression test though just to rule out the main things, were you located?

    My First FD.. New to everything

    gorgous FD mate, love the colour, best of luck with it, main thing id do first is get an aftermarket ecu (apexi pfc etc..) and remap it, reason being is the rotary engine is very sensitive to knock, in japan there tuned to japanese fuel 100ron, in ireland our fuel sucks, is about 95ron at best, i see your in NI so id be using 99ron at all times but well worth a remap, also if you want to get the most out of your map, new intercooler,rad, downpipe , decat and exhaust.. up the boost a little and she'll be flying

    Premix Deal

    im a bit of a brand junkie, i dont use my rx7 that often so i dont mind spending money on premix, i use the idemitsu rotary pre-mix, same used in 767Bin 24hour la mans,

    DoneDeal and other classifieds thread.

    damn thats johnnylaynes rx7, very nice car and really good spec, worth the money
  8. thats shit dude, however i do think you can name drivers on a classic policy, now i wonder does the named driver need to be 30 also?? could get your mam/dad or sibling who is over 30 and has there own policy to insure the car then name you on it, ring campion for a main policy if your stuck, there pretty decent from what i remember, still alot more than classic though

    New RX7 Owner

    make sure you get it re-mapped as soon as it gets to ireland, it will be mapped on japan fuel 100ron, ours is 95ron, or you will be rebuilding it soon, lovely car though, nice mazdaspeed seat
  12. ah that must be new criteria with autoline ive been with them the past 3 years and just turned 30 last month
  13. glad to see your getting sorted finally chazz, the lads do top notch work , as for that build... holy shit.. i mean leaving out stuff, using incorrect seals, wrong type weighted shafts and rotors , spurious apex seals etc.. etc.. thats just awful, literally thrown together with bits of shit around the garage with the 'that'll do' mentality, ive been to his garage and he does quite a bit of work on rx7s and rx8's, which is a shame because it gives rotary engines a very bad name when built like this, not to mention ripping people off, im a sparks and usually tradesmen garauntee there work for 6-12months after completion but if a house/building burnt down after 18 months due to my faulty wiring id be looking at a prison sentence i definatly think a stern phonecall is in order, the effort you put in trying to solve your issues thinking it couldnt be the engine its only recently rebuilt was incredible, atleast now its been looked after by lads who share the same passion as we do for our cars, its a tough lesson learned, now you can throughly enjoy a proper built rx8.. and as dara(rex ruther) says... port the shit out of it

    My First RX7/Rotary

    i think the knightsports ecu's are just chipped stock ecu's , so they'd be unmappable , as rex says the link ecus are going for cheap now but there only good for single turbo applications, so the apexi ecu would be your best bet, can pick one up second hand easy enough, and Stiv would be your man for a tune, i wouldnt pay attention to the stock knock sensor as there notoriously shite, best getting it to a tuner so they can hook up an external knock sensor and listen for the knock themselves, edit just re-read your post, if you have pfc and commander then you have the aftermarket ecu, how is it knightsports? was the apexi tuned by knightsports in japan? if the apexi was installed here most likely a base map was put on for irish fuel, im sure jamie @littlefeck can tell you if it is, but no harm in a proper map as all cars are different the key to these cars lasting is a good map also look into cooling mods, aluminium rad, intercooler etc
