Do the speedo cables differ between the years and models? I've got an '85 GSL-SE and I need to picukp the cable that connects from the tranny to the cable running into the dash and speedo, I'm just wondering if any of them will work or if I have to get one from an 84-85 GSL-SE?


any of them being any of the 1st gens

Who cares about the RX-8, I'm waiting for the new RX-7 that's rumoured to be released if the RX-8 does well.

I'm sure any 81-85 cable will work just fine.

Yup yup. That my motor the 13b bad ass.The speedo cable has nothing to do with the engine it has to do with tranny.I'm using a 12a stock tranny on my 13b.The parts from the Series 2 cars(FB: 81-85)seem to be interchangeable.But Zulu should ask mazda quickly about it before he buys it.

I love the way the little First gens look from the front knife edge styling. And if you want power you can always do this:More Honda hauling

Anyone know what's involved in removing the air pump? Will there be any noticeable gains?

What else can I do to get some more power out of my rex?
