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!

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

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.

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

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.

1987 Mazda Rx-7 N/A 1130KG
ZZ Rated Racing Avon Tires
5 Star Polished Aluminum Rims
ported intake
remove a/c , p/s , air pump
upgraded injectors
Fully adjustable Racing Koni struts
Racing Intrax Springs
1.3" RB Sway Bar
Greddy Strut Bar
Momo Interior
Sweet System
Custom Single Exhaust
w/ Bonez Race Pipe
MSD Ignition
Blitz Filtercharger
Electric Fan

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.

Yeah, I think I asked him about the larger injectors once, it's still a stock port. Maybe upgraded means cleaned 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.....
