5.5 PSI so very little! Can't imagine the rx-7 injectors are under much strain!

Upgraded to a proper variable TPS using an automatic BP throttle body. This gives far more linear response and accuracy for megasquirt :)

And a cheap unused K&N for Mr snail:

I rebuilt a rear caliper, it was quite a chore cleaning it up! It was starting to wear grooves in my discs so was due new seals etc.

Also changed the cam cover gasket as the generic brand one failed after about 9 months use. Mazda OEM FTW!

Still looking clean under there:

Been working on this for a few days, only passenger side done:

Rx-7 FD seat in an Mx-3, horrible task as the mx3 rails are at different heights, spacings, angles etc! Took many many hours of drilling, grinding and welding. Need to find a cheap driver side now :) Super comfortable, love these seats!

Wow, they have an Mx3-ish look and shape to them. Probablty the best looking non-Mx3 seats in an Mx3 Ive ever seen!

About time I did an update. Car has been running well. Swapped in my Walboro 255, improved 3rd 4th AFRs, but did reveal how it starves with less that half a tank :?

Annual testing:

Got my custom evo8 manifold skimmed flat, no more leaking :)
Image

Current big project: OEM JDM LSD swap from v6 to i4 G series box.

Ring gear fun

'bout flipping time...

ARP bolts and nuts

Only identifying numbers:

A beautiful sight:

So the box is all bolted up. Just getting axles ready then it's time to slip the engine out and tidy things up.
