Not for the faint of heart

Yet another 3rd gen bites the dust (or perhaps tree bark). Head over to Jalopnik for all the photos of yet another gifted RX7 pilot's exploits with his new car. ...

Checked double throttle operation last night, and they are fine: open normnally- closed with vacuum.

Hey Steve:
No, I'm back to the full sequential diagram. But, I'm curious about the solenoids that you referenced. Any idea what system they control.

I'm suspecting it's the flap on the y-pipe,...

Oh no! Not another 'no boost' question!

Yes, another one.
It's a long story- I'll spare all of you.....

Almost a year ago, I changed plug wires, and adjusted the throttle to ensure full throttle operation. Buttoned it back up, and it...
