    RX7 FC questions (mostly driveline related)

    Okay, so I'm picking up a RX7 Series 4 GXL for parts. This means all the turbo goodies, without the turbo. I have a few questions:

    1) I'm swapping over the four piston calipers and machining the rotors so I can continue to run my 14", four-lug phone dials per the writeup on Aaron Cake's website. Will the brakes still clear the wheels?

    2) Will I have to change the brake master cylinder to run the four-piston front brakes?

    3) Can I swap the rear center section to the LSD unit? What do I have to swap over?

    4) How do I go about rebuilding the LSD?

    5) Is the fog light wiring already in place? Do I just plug the switch and lights in, or will I have to pull the harness and swap that as well?

    1. if youre getting a gxl, then why dont you just do the full 5 lug swap? not sure if 4 pot brakes will clear the tiny 14" phone dials

    2. the brake masters are identical across the board for fc

    3. as long as you are going from n/a to n/a, you can swap any center section in there that you want.. of course the s4 clutch type diff is preferred

    4. i believe mazdatrix has a diff rebuild kit. or you can shim the clutch diff with beer cans.

    5. dunno. just go look? its probably there though

    Thanks for the advice!

    I want to keep the phone dials, I like to look of them. Mine are in immaculate condition, too. Plus, most oldschool rims are a 4-lug pattern anyway.
