i ripped a turbo out of a white with blue int 626gt 4ws a few months back at a yard. it even had some nasty ghetto hard pipe's, and had been set up for nitrous. and it was an auto......

i got the front lower tie bar off the car and the 4WS center cap off the steering wheel.

this car DID NOT have the rear strut tower bar on it though, and it didnt look like it was removed at any point since all the nuts holding the struts were still there and still extremely tight and dirty. unless an old owner when the car still ran removed it, but i dont see why anyone would do that.

Canada did also IIRC. I have that exact wheel in my car right now (although sadly mine is not the leather-wrapped version) Looks 100x better than the nasty stock one...

I dont think the 88 626 4ws got a RSTB. I thionk only the 89 mxg 4ws got it.

that would explain that then.

i was really hoping that front lower tie bar would bolt up on one of my probes, or 626gt. sadly the holes are not there for it ont hem. but just from holding it up, all you would have to do is drill some holes, but dont think it would really be needed. who knows. maybe one day ill use it for something.

I've heard rumors that the Aus 4WS steering wheel was Momo? Can someone confirm/deny?

You could only get them auto. And only the way you saw it. White, white wheels, and blue interior.

I have a spare timer box from a 626 4WS in the yards I found. I freaked when I saw it. Problem is it didnt work on my 6. Odd?I plugged it in and it didnt do a thing. Not even a 4WS light.

I removed the relays and mixed and matched them with my OEM timer box and stuff started working.
I think it would be weird that Mazda made them both different.

Not 100% sure, but all the 626 4WS's Ive seen have this steering wheel.
Ive only seen 2. But they both had this wheel.

I got another one... Sorry for multiple posts, its easier for people to get answers.
From what I remember, 4WS models have an additional control box thingie on the end of the speedometer cable just before the transmission. I think we also have a different speedometer cable?

I remember I had lots of problems finding this when I pulled mine apart.

4WS also has an additional crossmember support under the engine. Edit: I see Ray already said that, here is a visual:

I think the speedo cables are the same, it just has the speed sensor on the box.

And are all the 4WS speedo drive gears metal instead of plastic? Thats the case when i've been pulling things apart in Aus spec cars.

Yea... thats the thinger I was talking about. Hahh!
I had problems finding the right cable for my car? Dont know why. The first 3 didnt fit.

The gear on my car is plastic I believe? Somethings reminding me that its from an NA Probe though.
