Hi Guys i get asked a lot what do i need to run the Adaptronic ecu system in my FD3 RX7, well to make life easy for everyone i have put together a list of the items needed for a full install. pricing correct at time of publish due to exchange rates pricing is always moving.
Ok shopping list to support 500+ HP
ECU I will list two options pnp and wire in and this is my reason why. Unless you buy a new engine loom from Mazda which you can still do then no doubt it will have seen better days and really my advise is to replace the engine loom or my favorite option is the wire in units like the M2000 or M6000 and make your own loom with the help of the 2.5 mtr flying loom. you can get pins from RS Components and use your connectors from the old loom.
M2000 Wire in
M6000 Wire in
M2000 Fly 2.5 mtr loom
RX7 pnp there is two units the early type and later type if you go this route please make sure you pick the correct year unit for your car
late 96 onward cars
Early 92-95 cars
Sensors needed for the ecu
2x pressure sensors
MTX patch cable
2x EGT Sensors made in the UK soley for TGS Tuning with a 2 meter stainless steel over braid cable
Innovate TC-4 Plus
Innovate MTx-l Wideband
or if you don’t want a gauge then use the lc-2
if you have two used fd fuel temp sensors you can use these for fuel temp and oil temp if not then buy 2x of the following.
Mac Valve 3 port if you don’t already have one or use external boost control upto you.
4x AEM smart coils these will run in direct fire now on this ecu and not wasted spark like the pfc. X4
Leads for use with AEM smart coils MSD 8.5 price dependant on length x4
If you don’t already have fuel rails then you will need them. Ive not priced them as I m not sure what size line you are using
or you can use the ID2000 but I tend to use the newer 1700x now as these can be used with all fuels.
You can use the standard system but for high boost high rpm engines it is advisable to switch out to the FFE trigger wheel and use one of your existing OEM mag sensors.
