Scored a C's short shifter on eBay for 40 bux There's a catch tho, the lower spacer that sits inside the tran is missing. Not a problem, I call up my buddy Colin and he was able to make me one in UHMWP with the measurement I gave him :tup:
Also got an illuminate RX-8 5-spd knob to go with it.
It's arguably the best STS ever made for the FD, it's discontinued and hard to come by. New this thing is like $400, used one go for around $200 if all pieces included. They make STS for the FC too, FD one is more rare so that might be the reason why you only found info on the FC one, but if you search on 7club, you'll find a few thread that talk about this shifter.
Very true. It does click whenever I shift gear. It's part of the design of the "box" holding the pivot ball. anyways, looks like a solid item you were able to find there!
gotta question for you as I'm having a slight problem on my car: I can't boost.
details; I can build pressure with the turbos, but as soon as I hit positive pressure (boost) the engine cuts it off. My car did this 2 years ago when I fried through my MAP sensor wiring. Wired it back up and everything was good. It was also fine a few weeks ago before I changed my plugs and wires. Now, the car still runs fine, but it won't boost. (When changing my plugs, I rested on my MAP sensor and heard a crack, but everything seems intact)
do you think it's possible I broke something inside the MAP sensor that's causing me to not read positive vacuum pressure and therefor having the engine cut out?
I ordered a new GM 3-bar MAP sensor to be safe, but I wouldn't mind a second opinion.
i have the original window sticker which was 32,800. I got a great deal on it and have never driven a better handling car. I do miss the torque though.
i love the red and black leather interior too. i actually just bought a red and black leather shift boot to match too. Just...
Alright, let's start with the beginning of my story.
On Saturday, April 25th, 2009 I was at work at discount car rentals car wash. Some guy came by to get his car washed (obviously, DUH). He saw my Misa parked outside and came in asking "Who's MX-6 is that?! WHO'S SIX IS THAT?!" I answered it...

Since I know there are a number of members here on our boards who either own, have owned, or are interested in Mazda's rotary powered cars I decided to start this thread for specific rotary talk. This was actually JoeyV's(AKA the Rotary Canadian) idea to me after a little chat/thread jack.:p
