Front end pic?

does anyone have a pic of their FD front end disassembled that they can post to help me identify a part and part number? One without front bumper/bumper support with stock intercooler set up, thanks!

You may want to do a Google image search on RX-7 intercooler install, should be lots of pics out there.

Or you may want to let us know just what you are trying to find out, we may be able to help.

Some intercooler setups require that front bar to be removed. I'm sure that's why it's gone.

there are signs of previous aftermarket installs of various things under the hood so thatís very possible. Is it worth me getting another one welded in? Just has flat stock in there now with some booger welds. And they seem to run about 200$

That piece is structural so you definitely want to have something substantial there. It could have been damaged in an accident, that's quite possible.

That piece is spot welded on. It would be nice to have the proper piece on there and properly welded on, there are some things that bolt up to it (horns, some wiring).

A large piece of metal welded on would probably work just as well, it is something of a cosmetic issue.

The other big thing is the hood latch attaches to that bracket. Without it the latch will flop around, making the hood hard to close and stressing the top (flimsy) part the latch is bolted to.

definitely not a strong piece of metal, pretty sure itís broke actually. And that did happen to my hood latch, I got done working on it and the hood wouldnít close so I had to bend it a little upward. So it sounds like it would def be worth my while, thank you for the insight!
