"Still need to get knock sensor & intake Tube "...


.....That "intake tube" is important to the operation of everything. The IACV needs metered air after the MAF for the engine to run correctly. Leaks in the intake will make it run like cr@p. Try some spray carb or MAF cleaner in the IACV also. Knock Sensor is $40 on rockauto.com FYI...

The more I think about it - - - Mikey's explanation makes perfect sense.

The rad support bows in (away from the engine) after '75 to accommodate the larger (longer) L20.

^ that makes sense.


OP, look at a '79-82 Mazda RX-7 Rad. Someone here installed one and the hoses are on the correct side and the size is close.

I thought the rad support bowed on '75 and onwards to make room for the A/C condenser?

You'd need at least 1/4" spacers front and rear to keep from rubbing on the inside leafs/control arms. I went with the 1" front and 1/2" rear spacers to get the tires more flush without sticking out.


FWIW these wheels are the same size and offset as the Nismo TE37X factory Ray's wheel.


These tire sizes are pretty close to stock diameter, so they fill the wheel wells pretty good IMHO. Interesting thing is that the steering effort is the same or easier that the 195/60's i replaced.

Got the wheels sorted out.

Installed new wheel studs. Converted to 1.50 thread pitch and picked up McGuard black chrome deep lug nutz.



Baer solid aluminum 1/2" spacers for the rear



With 1" spacers in the front. 

I managed to score two 'blank' center caps on ebay (put them on the rear), still looking for two more. 

Tires are 225/50/16 rear, 205/55/16 in the front, Firestone Firehawk indy 500 summer tires.

Wheel test fit. Isuzu Trooper LS alum. 16x7 +38 w Firestone Firehawk Indy 500, 205/55 front 225/50 rear.


Still have to sort out the center caps. It's hard to find the blank ones without the Isuzu logo and need black lug nutz...Rubbing in the back slightly. Will need to add new studz and 1/4" spacers.

^ Thanks. I bought Berrymans MAF cleaner early on in the troubleshooting process, so I think it would have cleaned any residual oil off the sensor.... The engine ran fine for a year before it started acting up. The red air filter was from the PO and I replaced it with a shorter one when i was re working the intake (on the passenger side  B) ). 


The "replacement" MAF from RockAuto was a poorly remanufactured made in China item (POS) and worked like crap from almost the get go regardless of the air filter. My problem was i kept thinking that I eliminated MAF as the cause of the stalling because "I just replaced it", so I went about replacing the IACV, FPR, plugs, cap, rotor, wires and aux air valve over the next 3 to 4 months. The ECU kept throwing the MAF was bad code, so out of desperation I bought a new MAF from Nissan online and it has never run better. By then it was past the 90 day warranty return period so I had to eat the cost. fuuuuu. Plus all the unnecessary parts I replaced. double fuuuuuu.

Plus - the KA-D IACV needs metered air (after the MAF) and I think it would be difficult to stick a 1/2" holio in such a short run (thats what she said...)

Wow. Great idea on the radiator! Im trying to figure out how to stuff an A/C condenser in a '74. That would solve this issue nicely.


Is that the same RX-7 radiator?? 


Of course. more oics welcome!

Yep. oil pressure. It says "oil" but the pointer hides it in that pic.

Also each gauge in the 4-way has its own warning light and you can  set the triggers individually .
