  • I am having issues with my 88 RX7 Vert

    OF,

    I need help from s/o with experience with rotaries. I have a convertible RX7 with a S4 13B-T swap, that I have been working on with little progress (motor wise). The motor, tranny, and new harness are all in and the engine compression is fine. I still have not been able to get it running and I was wondering if someone might be able to stop by and possibly help me out.

    I have so much other things to do to the car so I was hoping to get the engine sorted ASAP.

    If you are mechanically enclined and willing to help me out text me or call @386-473-4288 I'm in Orange City, FL

    Joe

    here's the question....what engine management are you using? Have you verified you have spark and fuel?

        it starts but doesn't stay running is a different scenario than it won't get it started.....

        So I take it the thing has a MAF (mass air flow sensor)....I'd say you didn't route all of your intake through your intake....How is your PCV system ran? If you have an intake for the PCV that isn't after the MAF, but your PCV is vacuumed into the intake manifold after the throttle body...then that's probably a good indication of where your problem is....check your intake set up.

          Too bad im at work. But i live in deltona.

          How does it shut off? Like its running out of fuel or what?

          Does revving it help keep it running??

          Air fuel gauge? Backfiring? Smoke?

                I was just there the other day telling Eric he needs my big turbo and intercooler for his white FC haha.

                My friend's girl's black lancer was getting an engine last week.

                Maybe after work tomorrow.

                  So you are the one holding up the progress on the FC. jk But anytime you have some time to take a look I would appreciate it. I need to get the car driving.

                        Saw Eric this morning and he told me it runs when starting fluid is sprayed in, which indicates its an injector most likely.

                        He said he is going to switch the primaries with the secondaries and see what happens. I can come out tomorrow with my other rotary friend as well.

                        What size injectors are they? I MIGHT have stock FD 550ccs in my storage unit.
