Followed you over from the REPU forum. Awesome build! I just bought a 74 REPU and I'm looking to make it my winter machine/bike transporter. Few questions, did you happen to say but what are your specs on your BBS' and what model is that Brake Master Cylinder, just for my records. Also, Any thoughts on Rack and pinion conversion, the forum does not have much detail on the subject.

I'm sure i'll have a ton more questions in the near future.

FRONT 17x8.5 ET +7 (Positive 7 Offset)
REAR 17x10.0 ET -12 (Negative 12 offset)

Brake Master Cylinder is Wilwod WIL-260-8556P - Sumit Racing or Jegs sells them

Never had issues with my steering and therefore never considered the conversion.

any other questions are welcome. this is the reason why i started the thread...so people can get ideas of what to do and what not to do to their REPU.


Header is done all the way to the collector. Came out better than expected. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.









Exhaust is also done

Also got some work done over the weekend on her. Got a list of all the fuel lines and fittings required and also mocked up the coils. Coil mounting bracket will require modification

Very cool thanks! Few more questions that i didnt happen to see, Suspension mods other than the bushings/sways endlinks etc., I assume lowering blocks and brads coilovers? It doesn't look like you rolled your fenders either, is that correct? I'm looking to do a fairly aggressive pull.

I bought sodrifters REPU fyi, i saw he posted it on here too.

Also, details on the interior, i.e. carpet. I apologize if you listed it before, My forum search skills has really tailed off...

-Thanks again.

Cut springs in the front with upgraded shocks. Rear have lowering blocks. Fenders are stock. No pull no roll. Mazda made he fenders agressive as hell from the factory. I think you notice it more when you lower the REPU stance.

Carpet is stock. in really good condition. Floor mats were ordered thru LMC Carpet and modified by me with a simple patch that was ordered from E-Bay

Hope that answers your questions,,.,...any more feel free to ask.

Damn Simon, I go away from the forums for a few months and now find this! I absolutely love it. Combines the awesomeness of driving a REPU with my favorite motor. That sucker is going to fly, probably literally off the ground given the lightness of the REPU

Major props to you my friend. Going to bring this up to DGRR?

Engine was actually built by Kilo. I bought it from RulerMark. He had Kilo build it for his FD and then changed his mind and went LS1. I reached out kilo jr and spoke to him to confirm they bilt the engine and much to my surprise i found out it was bridge ported this maybe a bit to much for my old ***, but i'm not complaining....maybe after some driving i may start to complain about it but for now i am not. gonne work on it some this weekend so hopefully i will have some updates soon. i have been swamped with work and have not done much on the car.

Man I can honestly say I have not done much to the truck. I had so much free time during Dec and Jan and chose to lay on my *** and do nothing. I have been inspired the last week or so and thought I would post and update. I know it doesn’t look like much but I am starting to see the finish line, very vaguely, but I am starting to see it nonetheless.

Previous coils and coil bracket did not work out so I had to ditch that thought. Fabricated a new coil bracket and got new coils. Friend of mine told me the MSD coils that I had would not work with my computer. Did some reading and found out he is right and proceeded the get new ones.

Also got the fuel system done and started to wire the engine bay. Running 6 EV14’s 1000 CC injectors. Did I mention how much I hate wiring?

Got some wiring done, using black nylon braided wire wrap. First time using this stuff and it really makes for a clean install.







Lastly, went to the local race track as a spectator and saw this beauty in the in parking lot.

Got some work done over the weekend. I know it doesn’t look like much but I feel like a accomplished something. I got the bosch 044 pump installed with filter, return and feed lines. Also connected all wiring to the pump. Got the tranny tail shaft installed and sealed. Installed the water pump housing, water pump. Also, got some more wiring done but that is on hold until my new tool arrives tomorrow. Anyways, took some pics of the motor as it sits right now. I have to send the LIM out to coating as the inside face of the manifold looks like crap. Outside face is sexy that is why I took a picture of it. ahahahahahah anyways enjoy the pics.
