Re: Rear Speakers!

Fitted 6.5" into the back of mine. I needed spacers to allow the speaker to clear the factory hole. You can get pre cut mdf spacers for a couple of pounds from eBay. Sealed up all the holes and added some more sound deadening. Sounds better but still not massive bass.

Anyone got a 3.636 ratio rear end in an fb? Would certainly make 1st more useable and 5th better on the motorway.

Turbo fb

Anyone know the car? Would love to know what sort of boost its running and what sort of power it's putting out with that setup.

Re: Wheel Bearings

Ahh righto, so I need to select 1.3L rather than 1.1. I tried cross referencing against the parts fiche but this had as many GS / GLSE options.

Anyone ordered direct from Mazda? Prices reasonable?

Rear diff removal

Hopefully a quickey

Planning on pulling the rear axle and diff out to swap out the wheel bearings and bushings. Also planning on giving it a paint.

I was wondering if there is a gasket between the diff and the axle. Cant see one on the parts fiche. Is it RTV?

Re: RX7 1st Gen UK / Ireland Location List April 2016

I counted about 20 Elford turbos. Do you have an exact number split by series?
