OK, so i managed to get myself some ngk leads off lance, however found out FD's and FC's have comnpletely different fitments dispite both having 13b engines. After scouring the net i found some Magnecor leads for a good price. Received them yesterday and fitted them this morning.





I also managed to grab myself a set of 20 mx5 wheel nuts for cheap off ebay so whacked the centre caps on the front. Looks heaps better now with all centres on.












The rear arches were catching all week on the tyres so went to bens friday night and goit the arches re-rolled. I've also ordered some goodies from japan that are on. the.way.



PLUS THIS

EQUALS:




Next up will be the essential parts ive been needing. New clutch, Full exhaust to get it running properly, then if i can sort it in time, overfenders Cool Laughing

Now the pennies are being spent, cockpit kani ecu ordered (mapped for higher boost, all limiters removed, re-mapped for aftermarket intake, exhaust, stock turbo and fmic (which will be a later purchase but should still run ok))

Tbf they have been as they are since January, I don't see the point in getting the arches done now to just cut them out when I get overfenders, and even if I get them sorted they prob won't stay mint for long

Been thinking, once the fmic is fitted whether to keep the turbo II bonnet or go with the non turbo bonnet (without vent) as the top mount will no longer need cooling. Unsure wgmhich to go for, however the one I have is hella lighter than the n/a bonnet. Hmmm

Ecu was delivered this morning, however I'm not fitting it until fmic is fitted and exhaust is fixed to avoid damaging it unnecessarily.

ok so today being my only day off this week i got up nice and early, flew over to the mail depot to pick two parcels up (another on its way)



^thats 1 sard blow off valve, ARC oil cap and my cheapo lazy eye kit.

Fitted them right away, bov needs a t-pipe to connect to the pressure sensor vacuum line and thats all done. Oil caps on and the lazy eye/down syndrome (harsh i know but tis what rx7 haters call em) kit installed. wired through and switch is mounted on my centre armrest in a blank switch cover next to my mirror controlls as i didnt want to drill more holes in my dash.

I will get pics of bay etc up tonight once ive finished everything.

Only reason im updating this early is im waiting for the damn post to turn up so i can fit my air filter, rad cap and my t-peice adapter on my BOV.
