    Stubby ARB Brackets?

    Cheers JP. DM Motorsport ones not in stock and wouldn't rely on them being made soon. Like you say, not sure if the stabiliser bars are shorted, I think not so might go with the FEED ones if I've other stuff to order. Must get a new OMP oil line at least.
  2. The brackets the ARB mounts to is pretty crusty on my FD. OEM replacements are 50quid each but the OEM design looks flimsy. Researching uprated mounts, the seem to be mainly shorter to allow for lowered cars. Anyone gone down this route? These FEED ones are in my RHD Japan basket at the minute https://www.rhdjapan.com/feed-front-short-stabilizer-brackets-fd3s.html

    Engine mounts

    My land rover mounts are still sitting on the bench in the shed. I'm going to try find an alternative, these are too small for me. Not interested in solid mounts, think a trip to the local motor factors is needed to pick their brain

    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

    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!

    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!

    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

    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.
  9. 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?

    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

    Cheers. Struggled to price them and think they're fair at that.
