    Default My RX7 FD3S Re-Amemiya Twin Turbo Build

    hey guys

    well its been about 3 years that i've had my FD now
    first the reason why i bought this car is because when i saw it for the first time, 1995 on south beach, i fell in love with the car

    take your pick...the lines, the big tach in the center of dash, the pop up lights, etc... they all started a life long relationship with this car, then when i got my license, the hunt started

    i found my car on, go figure, miami beach in november of 2008 and heres what she looked like, it was the cleanest one i've ever seen

    bone stock besides the wheels and an aluminum AST

    67k miles (body and motor) original grand touring SSM with black interior and glass sunroof :nod:








    -99 spec lip
    -more low!

    working with a 3 piece wheel company the first thing for me was take care of the 2 things left on that list to make the car look perfect

    so first things first...got me a 99 spec lip and some Racing Beat lowering springs (definitely the best lowering springs for the car)

    then she looked like this



    once the lip and stance was set...the next thing was the exhaust system

    heat wrapped down pipe and mid-pipe

    HKS Carbon Ti Catback

    then came the day

    the one that we all know is coming but none of us want to believe is coming

    yup...roxy needed a rebuild...water seal went bad

    and the best part was it blew on the way to a Mazda meet out here in So.Fla

    so my reaction was documented...:icon_tdow



    so here we go on the rebuild

    picked me up a Rotary Aviation complete rebuild kit with RA 2mm seals

    also picked up a spec clutch while the tranny was out








    then i started the install of my V-Mount from RX7club.com forum member Eternal

    heres the car on the way to the shop to get the piping welded



    and heres with the it all welded up and ready to go






    next came all the heat wrapping to keep Roxy's intake temps nice and low










    during the build time of the car i picked up a set of Tein Basic coilovers, i had them on the car for about 500 miles....then i found a set of Tein Flex Coilovers with the EDFC package

    Twin Greddy TD05h-18g
    Twin Greddy/Tial Wastegates

    alright so an update as promised

    i got to pull apart the front of the car today.
    tomorrow starts disassembly of the intercooler/rad setup
    only have about 2 hours to work on the car everyday so it's gona be about 3 days of work to get the stock twins out of there

    oh and i also got to assembly wheel to get an idea of what my wheels will look like when they're done... 18" ISS Forged RX-10 with step lips







    i finally got all of the stock turbo system out of the car

    this one motherf*#king down pipe nut that refused to let go...took me 2 hours of trying to be a proper mechanic till i said screw it and got the grinder out and went to town on it :nod:

    made me feel a lot better to say the least :icon_tup:

    so Monday begins fab work!!
    well the ISS Forged fabricator will be doing the fabbing

    i'll be installing the complete fuel system into the car

    here are the pics from today

    first one is my battle victory against that goddamn down pipe nut
