So things have took a turn for the worse... Apex seal spring in the front rotor seems to be sticking but the worse is a clutch problem or gearbox will keep you all informed:-(

Ok thanks to a good friend used amsoil combustion chamber cleaner and unstuck the seal so we are back in business. No rebuild and compression looking good. So we took the car for a neat drive down the San Fernando bypass, when all of a sudden the car started to shudder, we looked under the car and saw nothing wrong.

How as everybody been?? Big plans for 2012.

Found out the rear right tire imploded on itself (this could have been dangerous!) giving the vibration. I endup selling the Enkei wheels to be replaced with some Rays Gram lights 57c 8x8.5 +30 offset from my brothers Familia GT-R.

These wheels fit perfect in the back but need a +30 offset wide fender in the front to work without touching. So got to get these before bodywork, I am currently saving lol.

On another note i finally got my Cusco Strut tower brace for the front!! so the suspension is complete!!!!



Finally got my Cusco Strut Tower Brace for the front after 4 years!!!

sorry to jump in all random and off-point here, but you might be the best person to tell me my available options if i'm looking for a set of FC coilovers, doesn't have to be complete, i can live with the front alone.

Hey Maztune, what would a 13B and 5 speed from an FC run me? Turbo or non-turbo
Or a 12A.

I'm thinking of putting rotary power in my Roadster

I thought about it or an SR20, don't know how hard it would be to source a BPT. So I considering all options if I can afford it.

If you seriously considering cross breeding you in the wrong forum! Budget $20K (minimum) for a proper BPT install. What is wrong with your B6?

I got it with a blown engine, and it's automatic. I like the idea of a carbd 13B in it
Needs quite alot of work, i'm not in Trini btw, another island.

Stay away from the 12A, as parts for those are becoming extinct.

ok so where were we.... ahh yes 2012 my engine got blown by lending out my car in the middle of the year. I needed the following to get back on the road :

1) 2 rotor housings which i swapped from a FD3S engine. (note one hole has to be drilled into the housing to work in an FC so water can cool the turbo)
2) 2 rotors which I also swapped from this same FD3S engine. it has better oil passages than FC anyhows.
3) 1 oil pump. My oil pump was scorched beyond repair.
4) 3 engine plates. Now my old plates were good but I found a set of limited edition 1992 series 5 plates which comes with FD bigger porting.
5) Gasket seal kit. went for an Atkins Type A kit without apex, side and corner seals.
6) Apex/side and corner seals - got hold of a set of brand new mazda apex side and corner seals from a remanufactured FD engine. The reason why i went for this was simply the side seals were already cut and shaped for the corners hence saving a good few days.

All my old parts seemed ok.

TOTAL COST - $18000.00

All parts cleaned with a fine tooth comb and built using the Atkins Rotary DVD. I had no idea how to build an engine before this. Built a rotary before a piston engine which personally way harder.

This build took place Christmas day 2012.

Happy new year everybody its not 2013!!! :drinking: :bday:

So early that year I got my suspension sold and went Cusco Fully Adjustable coilovers. It was time to paint so I pulled out the old bussed up Shine Auto body kit I had lying around and sent the car by Xtreme Body Kits to fix and install. Now the pictures you are about to see are not for the faint of hearted and viewer discretion is advised.
