wellllll after 4 months off the road, 4 holidays, and the changing of a new year (sept 20th - january 4th) my rx7 is back up and running





its been strenuous, costly, and ******* annoying at times



but it was totally worth it....its running perfectly .... only thing left is to get about 700 more miles on her to break in...then get it tuned



NJ people : who tunes haltechs?....i was thinking ito right?





anyways....woo...im sooo happy .. ill have pics / video soon

I am trying to get 900 miles more on mine. You will probably win on the break in. I dont drive far for anything. I am going to do a road trip in the next day or 2 all on secondary roads.

First start we let it run about 5 mins, checked/fixed leaks



Second start I let it run/idle for about 15 mins, varying throttle between 900-1500 rpms slowly



shut down let cool and check fluids



Third start I let it run/idle and vary throttle every 10 mins up to 2500 rpm, for 45 mins



Next was the road test. 2 miles to fill the tank, then a quick 5 mile jaunt down the road. From there we hooked up the E-fan to a switch and sent Mike down the road.
