some 7's getting tuned

Discussion in 'Transportation' started by Rxtuner(fc3s), Sep 1, 2008.

  1. Went down w/ my buddy today to Lethal Injection in GA to get his FD Rx-7 tuned. He put down 440whp w/ 300ft lbs of torque @ 18.5psi. Car is very fast and really smooth now that its fine tuned by one of the best Rx-7 tuners in the business, Steve Kan.

    I have a lot more but wanted to share just a couple. I played around w/ the shops logo to help get there name out on a couple of Rx-7 forums we are on. Very nice people and fun day to mess around w/ my new D80 w/ MB-D80 grip. Thanks for looking!

    Any tips or advice is welcome! I am all ears!

    Pic#1 Nice angle, transformer & elect. box are distracting. Try different angle?

    #2 Good composure, sun is harsh - wait for cloud cover?

    #3 Excellent shot!

    #4 This shot would be better tighter in with a wide or super wide angle lens

    #5 Nice, I would have cropped tighter above the roof

    #6 Sweeet, If you really want to nitpick the corner of the hood is cut off

    #7 Like it, I would have cropped a little higher above the roof.

    #8 Ditto

    Hope this helps. See what happens when you request feedback.:biggrin:

    also when you post the photos space them apart so the borders arent run together.

    ps-tell dave to get off his butt and get that ls2 s13 on the road :biggrin:
  4. haha. Thanks guys! It was a fun day for sure and a great environment for me to just take pictures and learn my new camera some more. I love shooting so much! I'll take the advice and remember it.

    if in not mistaken its a dynojet.
  8. nope... Mustang Dyno
  9. ahh

    are the numbers corrected? Mustang dynos tend to put out numbers that are slightly inflated...

    mustang dynos read low compared to most dynos.
  11. yeah you got it... they read slightly lower than most dynos. All I remember is Steve tunes Rx-7's great and it was so smooth! we hit 165mph like nothing at the top of 4th gear. lol. That GT35R really screams in high rpms and sounds great!

    Doesn't really matter if they read lower. The mustang dyno has a brake on it, so you can tune the car at a constant rpm. (the right way to tune)

    Cool pics man
