Default Mazda Fanatic

hello all,
my name is Jessie i live in Boise Idaho i am currently building an FE-DOHC that is going to be turbo'd, nitrous, and methanol injection fed. from everything i have heard from people on mx6.com the bottom end hasn't been pushed to it's breaking point yet. so after reading that i thought ok well i am going to do my best to get the most power out of the full stock engine with new bearings/seals/gaskets.
now before everyone start's flaming on this post. the nitrous and meth are going to be on a window switch in small quantities, and starting on about 10 to 15psi eventually hoping to bump the boost to 25psi.
the FE-DOHC is going into my (FD3S) 94 Mazda RX7 i got tired of the rotary for the mean time, at least until i can save up enough to build a decently ported 20b turbo.

anyway that's about it for now that i can think of.
thanks
Jessie

yes the FE3 is the FE-DOHC, just another "name" for it i guess.

i have read that the SSAutochrome manifold is crap but also have read that it is good. but the main reason why i am after it is for clearance of my steering. and i love the way it looks. i have been trying to hunt one down and have so far been unsuccessful.

Dude, that manifold is ****. Any ebay mani is ****, except the few good cast log manifolds out there. I don't know if they even still make them.

You either need a custom piece or a decent quality OTS manifold that will work. But I figured since you can swap an engine, slapping together a manifold yourself can't be much harder. Right?

If it comes from eBay it probably crap. I had a ss autochrome mani 8 or so years ago on my SR motor. It was great. That being said I am the only I repeat ONLY person I have ever talked to that had a good experiance.

Bond- is that a 650 or 1000 in your avatar

All good. Thinking of selling mine cause after living in Europe Americans scare the hell out of me. Plus just starting to lose interest. Other riders are either dicks or ride to slow. Sad to hear ya sold it.

i get that they were made with **** quality and all, but the main reason i want one is for the style/design. i was planning on building my own but i wanted the dimensions and having one in person is way easier to ref. off of. the only difference in the appearance of the manifold that i would make based on the SSAutochrome is the wastegate flange would be moved to the collector because i have enough space for the wastegate to fit on the side, and it would have better flow.

The manifold you linked to is, indeed, a piece of ****.

Please save yourself the frustration and trouble and get a decent-quality part, especially if you really are shooting for the moon, power-wise.
