Here is something rare for the car..

Defi Super Sport Cluster.. very few in usa and I should be one of the first to put this in an FD here in USA.

I been wanting to get this for about 8 yeears and Defi never sold this here and never sold this off the shelf in Japan. It was specific Dealer only unit in Japan where it had to be installed in a car by the authorized installer in Japan. All the ones that are here in USA were used units and this is a brand new unit.

LOL! Yes.. I'm a huge rotary fan...

Here is my other one

Mint 1994 SSM that I'm putting all rare Mazda/Mazdaspeed goodies on.. Original paint with only 32K miles. This is my long term project that I been collecting parts for over 7 years... Once done, this would be the most expensive project I have done. Which is kind of surprising since most will think 3 rotor project is..

During this build, I had a chance to go visit Chris Ludwig from Ludwig Motorsport to check on the harness for the engine.

We decided to use the AEM coils with the Haltech PS2K.

Here is something new for the 20B that I'm debuting..

Name:  photo90.jpg
Views: 39
Size:  131.3 KB

ITs the new Xcessive Engineering lower intake manifold for the 20B. This is made for those interested in doing 3 rotor swap on RX7s, by lowering the height of the manifold and also each runner has an individual injector port. By using this, I'll be running 6x ID2000s on this manifold and 3x ID1000s on primaries on the irons. This much fuel, I'll be good for E85, 1000+WHP.... but shooting for 700-800 ish WHP.

I also studded the LIM and cut various FD hardwares to get this studded look with chrome hardwares. Also, better view of the LIM with UIM.
