take out the 13b and put a ford 302 in, it'll scoot then.

As for the FD's, they are just too complex to troubleshoot. The vacuum diagram is an absolute nightmare.



Easy, just get hose matching the diagram.

My brother just bought a POS 88 rx7. Every couple days I need to help him fix it, I hate it already. Mostly because I fix all its problems for no benefit of my own....and he wants to be a mechanic

I will say congrats though. Its ALOT nicer than my winter DD, an 88 honda accord. I say play with it and have fun

yes that's why people go non-sequential or big single on FD's....

12a's are easy though..... not too many problems to speak of

First off I already have a 96 ek with a jdm b16a2 in it so no more hondas allowed. secondly the rx7 has a 12 not the problematic 13b's. And this will b the first carbed vehicle I've ever owned, how do those things work again? I can't find the ecu???!!! lol

Seriously though, if I could find a really nice clean one, I'd be all over it it. With a big assed carb they can be quick as snot. Who'd you buy the car from?
