Get an intake for starters...and don't forget the air freshner too :D

But do not get bad intake though.
There are so many bad intakes like ractive, AIP(or API?), Motomaster and etc.
Get good ones like Blitz, HKS, RE Amemiya, Apexi, Greddy, etc.

Woohoo, an RX-7 thread! I too have an 88 GX. From what the americans I've been talking to are saying it's a Canadian model which is equivalant to their base or sports model, I've heard both.

As for mods, First thing I did was replace the nasty phone dial rims with some 16's. Huge cosmetic improvment. Next week I'm ordering a Mazdatrix short throw just cause my shifter has quit a long notchy throw. I'll get to exhaust and suspension as soon as I can stop this nasty losing streak at the casino! :D

Yeah, the 2-8hp noticeable increase sure does justify spending $150-200 on a quality intake. :rolleyes:

:D

whats the difference they are all just a larger pipe. the filter i could see as being a difference but in the intake pipe. no. there is a difference between a short ram intake and a cold air intake.

MidnightMechanic 05-29-2002 04:52 PM

Get a good quality free flowing exhaust. Rotaries benifit majorly from a good exhuast:)

different kind of filter doesn't make much different...
execpt how much the filter can filter...(as i know...HKS mushroom one sucks on filting;)...)
the size of intake pipe doesn't make much different...
the length of the intake pipe will make different...
that is the different between short ram and CAI

Go talk to the guys at Progressive, they will give you some ideas that you can work with.

VanIsleRev 05-29-2002 08:37 PM

since we are talking RX-7 here, what do the intitials GSL stand for? what level of RX-7 is this?

CanadianRX7 05-29-2002 09:17 PM

i dunno all i know is that its a 1st gen. Grand Sport Limited lol i have no clue.

NanaimoRx-7 05-30-2002 02:05 AM

EXHAUST FIRST, get rid of the biggest restriction first, then move around to other things like intake. Find a header, anything but Pacesetter, and maybe a Bonez race pipe to replace those cats.
Try and catch up to bcty's mods.

CANADIANRX7: I think the guy who bought your car lives a couples blocks away from me. And how the hell did you find a TURBO II so damn quick? Bastard. Nice work.

CanadianRX7 05-30-2002 08:21 AM

well i bought the car from vic and u are from nanimo soo... :)
It only took me 1 and a half weeks to get my TII after selling my n/a. I searched every where for one. I only found 2 TII's, the one i have now and one in van.

Also why does the car have upgraded injectors??what size are they?? chances are that car is running very rich.

CanadianRX7 05-30-2002 08:22 AM

oh thats bcty's car. I will ask him about that and see. I was going to race him one night in my old n/a but they didnt liek the 15 min drive to the racing spot and turned around :(

NanaimoRx-7 05-30-2002 11:48 AM

Yeah, I think I asked him about the larger injectors once, it's still a stock port. Maybe upgraded means cleaned :rolleyes: We should get a bunch of Rx-7's together for a drive, I promise I wouldn't turn back, not even if someone said, oh by the way the spot's in Tofino.....

CanadianRX7 05-30-2002 12:58 PM
