  1. A full seal kit is about $2k. Replace the 3 piece apex seals with later 2 piece, but will still only be 2mm. Also upgrade the corner seal springs wth FD ones. Could go 3mm but you will need to get the slots done professional slotted. Everything will need balancing. The shit part will be if you have blown an apex seal, then it's probably done the housing too. New ones are about $800 from Mazda I think. If it's damaged the rotor well yeah, you can see how the costs start to add up, even if you plan to build it yourself. Of course you don't have to do a full seal kit, but a good opertunity once it's open. The hardest part about rebuilding the motor will be getting the clearances correct. Not sure if your vid covered that? But I say go for it. Remember to drill some new ports.
  2. Smokey rotaries is also a sign of worn out oil rings. It's not normally happy times unfortunately.
  3. Well, on the bright side, now you can port it, front mount it and butcher the front bumper!
  4. Check internets about bleeding the air out of these. They are notorious for trapped air and there must be a trick to bleeding them. It's a common fault with the series 4.
  5. I like cheese. and port and white man blues. and boobs.
  6. You can buy new floors from Oz for these. It's way cheaper than patching the floors. sweet ute. B1600's are awesome.
  7. AWESOME! It's alive, it's alive! Google tells me there are heaps of ways to remove rust from fuel tanks. Be interested to see what method you go for and how well it works.
  8. Just run steelies and white walls.
  9. Rad. This looks like a super sweet project mate. Look forward to following your progress!
  10. Panasports people.
  11. Keen for Southland convoy.
  12. I will also look to book leave so I don't get stuck in Timaru with felixx again.
  13. I love Zephyrs. Ones with V8's even more so.
  14. The factory ECU's are shit and the were sooooooooooooooooooooo bad at flooding (from new) they had to make serious changes for the S5. I approve of the mega squirt monster J-Port turbo idea.
  15. The fuel cut defender is a work around for the leaning out issue you talked about. It simply lies to the ecu to stop it leaning out at high boost/revs. It's not perfect but cheaper than a whole new ECU system. They are mainly used when you wind up the factory boost but don't upgrade the ECU. Do you want the fuel cut defender out of my car? I'm going to install a Link in mine so won't need it. It's a simple plug and play!
