Really nice work, as a fellow heat shielding obsessed person, I can appreciate your attention to detail.   Lots of little things on that progress list that make a ton of difference in overall function.

Thank you!  Itís amazing how all the little refinements truly make the car that much more enjoyable.

Also very interested. My car as originally swapped in about 04-05 and is rocking (pun intended) a Hinson subframe.  Been fighting bumpsteer all this time.  I also have JTR longtubes that have been patched a few times due to, uh, contact.  Would be nice to get all that upgraded at once.

Drivetrain / Ford Explorer Rear Axle Boot
« Last post by anubyss on Today at 02:32:28 PM »
For those with a Ford 8.8 rear, do you have a rear inner axle boot part number for a 2007 Ford Explorer?  I purchased some used axles and need a boot for it.  I bought a boot that looks like this.

But the axle looks like this.

Seaching online I found a picture that has a cap that looks to be in the shape of the axle.  Is the boot itself molded to the shape of the axle or is there a cap for it like this one?  Most picture I find of the part say it's for the front (unless the front and rear axles are the same?). 

Parts WTB / Hood struts
« Last post by BlnLs1/rx7 on Today at 12:19:23 PM »
Would like to buy a set of hood struts for my 1987 Mazda RX7. It has a steel hood and is very heavy.
Everyone's opinion behind a keyboard is overinflated and ridiculous.

I've taken my FD, which was also destined for the scrapyard (AT touring "undesirable model" still getting swap hate online) to rotary meets, once in person they tend to chill the hell out. Without a keyboard or screen to hide behind, their butthurt gets dailed down a lot. Also, if they do get into the ruined weight or balance of the car mode - you can't argue with the math: https://www.rx7club.com/other-engine-conversions-non-v-8-118/stock-vs-ls-vs-2jz-weight-1063061/

If they want to make some piston hate, send them to the precious iron anchor only good for drag racing 2JZ swappers who can't hope to run a stock hood. As said above, do what you want to do as it's your car heh. We all dig it here and support keeping the FD on the road and not in the garage  :cheers:

IIRC early 2000'sish, before the LS Swap starting becoming let's say more "ubiquitous",  I swear I could recall a lot of RX7's just heading to the scrap heap because it was widely known that your engine is gonna grenade a lot quicker than a piston driven engine.

So a rolling chassis was pretty dirt cheap "Hmm, do I want to buy a car, where the engine will grenade before 30,000 miles, and few mechanics know how to work on them? No.".

But then the LS Swap became a thing, that was a game changer. Now all of a sudden the car has utility, fuel efficiency, don't need add oil to your fuel, and reliability, so long as the swap was performed competently.

Fuel lines and new fuse setup in the trunk is sorted out.

I finished the modifications to the strut brace, the last of the new engine harness (under hood part) and most of the air control system.   I need some lines to come in, but shipping is slow due to the pandemic.  Next up is finishing the couple fuel lines under the car, and then exhaust, and THEN the interior harness work.   Oof.   That'll be a job.  I did get most of the final bits I needed for the interior wiring, so it'll just be sitting down and knocking it out.   Been busy at work and home with the stuff going on (we make corporate medical software, and just launched a telehealth and COVID-19 specific product), so not as much time as I'd like, ironic considering the stuff in the world.
