I think with time, the "trinkets" come and go... but **** it, it's your car and your path. None of it is permanent. Lord knows I've done questionable **** and come back around on it.

What's the rotor in the upper left next to the Mazdaspeed Oil Cap?
It's all good.

The piece you're asking about replaces the dipstick handle.

Sake Bomb Coils or HKS Twin Power. Pick one - sell the other. Can't use them together.

...or is there something really cool that I don't know about?

I know. I found the HKS after I bought the SBG. I'll decide which to use down the road. I know the HKS units have been discontinued for some time so I can resell if I end up using the SBG stuff. Always like the HKS stuff so decided it wouldn't hurt to have it.

I've done the EXACT same thing at least three times

I ended up with the SBG coils. Only thing to pay attention to is the dwell settings in the P-FC.

Yeah I've had it in the back of my mind that some changes will be needed in order to run the SBG coils.

All the rotor things can always be put on or taken off easily, so go for it.



Couldn't agree more. It's like, when I first bought my old Testarossa, I bought a boatload of Ferrari stuff, like a cap, a vest, T-shirt, blanket, etc. Now they sit in a closet.

TECH... It's a beautiful car and I can't wait to see what you do with it!
The little rotor pieces are far from overwhelming so I doubt they will appear overbearing once on.

I'm not one to keep ANY vehicle stock, so that really was never an option.

I would swap out the A-pillar for a Fly rx7 (frank) center speaker gauge pod. My opinion, but it looks cleaner. A-pillar reminds me of Fast and the furious

I have thought about that. Are they still available? Not sure what other gauge I'd want to run.

Sure is. You can do a dual or triple or 4 gauge pod. Whatever you wish.

I have one and really like it

Rotary Performance also sells the TriPower Pods - which are similar to the Fly pods - I don't have an opinion one way or another.

RX7.COM | FD Gauges

You might also want to look into the RE-Amemiya column mount pod. I love that for the boost gauge. Made to hold a 52mm gauge, but a dremel will allow a 60mm gauge to fit.

Yeah there are a lot of bad reviews on the Tripower ones. I was going to do the column mount until I decided I wanted more than one gauge.

Oh really? I was not aware, I had one for years and never noticed an issue. But like I said, I don't have an opinion one way or another, just throwing another option out there.

Yeah, I did some searching after it was suggested to ditch the pillar pod and do the dash one. I do appreciate your input though.
