The AWD 4 rotor is now capable of making the peak power we’ve planned from the beginning. This ignition is used on drag cars pushing 100 PSI of boost making over 1300 hp on 2 rotors. Huge thanks to Fuel Tech for teaching me how to make huge power

Might want to invest in a shield to cover the drill bit just in case it shatters

Coil mount seems a bit over engineering; when a simple bracket like www.amazon.com/VintageBee-Bracket-Fastener-Shelves-Furniture/dp/B07HHYPGQ7 Would work. :) to stand the coils on edge instead of flat. They'd probably run cooler with less radiant heat soaking them from the engine.

@Rob Dahm The only other 4 rotors I've seen is the Mazda 787B it sounds ridiculously good it was NA and pushing over 730hp and able to do 900 Naturally aspirated. Will you be running it only on a straight or will you be running it on a track?

When you've got mounting holes in your piece it makes sense to drill them first, then use them to hold the workpiece to the bed (or scrap plate). That way the clamps won't get in the way and if you need to take it off for another process, or to turn it over for example, you can line it up exactly where it was and your DRO won't need recalibrating. Nothing wrong with what you did as you can see from the result but might save you time in the future.

Listen Rob you need to contact Halteck and ask for the Moog master he will custom design an ecu and software for that beast so that it can and will drive like a street car and dragster when needed ;) Oh and wicked welding I knew u could do it great craftsman ship.

One rule of drilling holes at random intervals release pressure on the drill bit by lifting it up to break the swarf that way you dont risk injury

The problem here is the fact that a 100mj spark is no less effective than a 600mj spark. That's just a fact. Many tests have been done proving that you gain no more power, no greater efficiency and no greater combustion (more burnt exhaust) than just using OEM. You see, if there WERE an advantage then Mazda would have put a 10,000mj or a 20,000mj coil on the car. The price difference to Mazda between putting a 100mj coil and a 10,000 mj (or whatever) is tiny and if they could actually get a more efficient burn and, thus, more power then they would easily have done it! That's just a fact. MSD has always been and always will be a waste of money. It's been proven time and time again that adding larger coils does absolutely no good at all. It's kinda like saying, "I started this forest fire with a torch and you started a forest fire with a match! Thus, my forest fire is way, way bigger!" Yeah, it's really that stupid. MSD and this entire disprove wive's tale for the fail

Do not wear long sleeves, if it gets caught in that tool (drill bit, end mill, whatever) your gonna be in some serious pain. You shouldn’t even be wearing gloves, get some files, swivel knife and tri-knife for deburring. Your killing it!!

Hi Rob, you mentioned that those leads would cause lots of RF noise and how it could be a problem for nearby sensors. You can reduce the RFI significantly by looping those wires through ferrite rings. I don't know if it's better to put the ferrite ring on the sensor wires, or on the ignition trigger wires, but they're cheap, so you might even say, put them on both. There's nothing like overkill, right? IF you get issues with RF noise, think about tinkering with some ferrite rings. You can get clip-on ones, so you might not even have to disconnect the wires.

www.mazdaforum.com/forum/mazda-rx-7-33/joe-maddox-super-rare-1-100-1989-fc3s-gtus-rx7-2jz-gte-vvti-build-43602/ I have found and saved the rarest Mazda FC RX7 ever made! Now this car is rare. Really rare! Let me break this down really quick... Ever heard of the rare 100 GTUs rx7s? Only 40 have ever been claimed and only 7 are confirmed at the time of this posting! Here are the rarest rx7 FC3S models: 1500 10AE Turbo models 1400 infini 1000 winning limited 150 final edition convertible 100 GTUs... out of that 100: 83 red on black 10 black on black 7 white on blue There was only 100 GTUs models created between 1989 and 1991. If you own one of these rare models sign your car up to the registry list here on any of the rotary forums!

“Drill bit attachment” is a chuck. Get a thin piece of plexi or Lexan, 12x18 ish and use that as a front shield for those hot chips, just hold it. No sleeves or gloves.

Rob! Please NEVER wear long sleves or gloves on a milling machine or any other spinning machine! When a piece of cloth get's caught, the spinning force can rip your hand and lower arm off! I know someone who almost lost a hand because he was wearing welding gloves on a drillpress...

Looking good, so you were saying long sleeves might be a good idea when making chips on the mill. Yes they can keep your arms from getting pegged by aluminum chips. Unfortunately long sleeves can become caught up in the tooling as its spinning. Those knee mills can pull your arm in and easily break bones or even worse remove limbs. No sleeves, cotton gloves, long hair or dangling jewelry. Leather gloves are ok as they don't frey strings. Stay safe man, love the incredible build!

Get the Milling tool further down so you cut with the upper part of the blade closer tho the mounting shaft. The tool wont vibrate as much and wont bend.

Bottom coil=bottom plug for equal length HT leads (like it matters). Also in before vibration induced misfires. Having the plate wider and reach over the block a little more would fix that.

What if you milled radiator fins into the remaining space of the aluminum deck? Those lines would also be ultraprecise and complement the straight-ass bolts.

zfreak280 پیش 2 ماه
For us normies that are not running 1000 hp, you don't need to upgrade your ignition system. The spark plug is what it is, a spark. That is all you need to ignite a mixed gas that is near detonation. The spark only needs to jump the electrode gap in order to start the combustion process. You are not going to get a more consistent or more efficient burn with an upgraded spark plug. If you are getting a lot of misfire even with very small spark plug gap, then you MIGHT want to consider an upgraded ignition system. But first try advancing your timing before you do that.
