+ 8,45% more rolling circumference of your rear wheel 245/45/17 did you make any speedometer update ?
yep... dont have one ;) dont forget the gearing on the FD trans would also add to a difference..


I am looking into a gps setup, Kevinbtz has a write up on making a gslse one work in the fd trans.. I dont have a cable internals on my stock one (14yrs along the wya it went somewhere) and the one I bought wasnt correct... so Im not spending anymore money to hack apart stuff that may or may not work.. haha

ebay/amazon gps readouts are around $50 and will be more accurate haha I can also use my phone thru the radio or as a standalone.. so Im not to worried

almost at tune level to start running boost...

So much help from Kevin Baltz ( https://www.youtube.com/user/kevinbtz ) with the tuning and various trouble shooting over the phone and interwebs...

small video of datalogging with my oldest daughter... she helped me bleed the brakes, fill trans fluid, diff fluid and remove roll center blocks before this... nothing exciting...

and one from outside.. I need to try an open case for the gopro...

we decided not to run the boost datalog due to figuring something with the timing first, which was lucky because about 3mins after that video above as I pulled up to shop door I lost the clutch.. we believe its just the master cylinder as its factory and sat 14yrs...

You should have to built a rally cross 4 wheel drive version of your Rx7. The streets around your house are awfull for driving with a lowered and new painted car. :o :?:
