Mazda RX-7 Owners, Rejoice! Mazda Offers Replacement Parts for FC and FD Models

Discontinued in 2002, the RX-7 is a cult classic of the import and JDM scenes. The second and third evolution of the sports car happen to be the most popular, and better late than never, Mazda has decided to restart production of replacement parts using modern tools and equipment.

Put simply, the Hiroshima-based automaker has selected the most demanded components for the FC and FD and got in touch with the original suppliers to analyze the blueprints. At the time of writing, the Mazda Classic heritage program for the RX-7 consists of exactly 91 parts and assemblies.

As expected, the list of goodies is pretty sensible. Vacuum hoses, rubber bushings, engine gaskets, throttle position sensors, you name it; the most essential stuff is there. Mazda said that it will continue to expand the number of parts without going into further detail about future additions.

Available in portable document format at the end of this story, the list also gives us a glimpse into the pricing of these OEM components for the FC and FD. The brake caliper body and piston, for example, cost 62,260 yen or $605 at current exchange rates. A windshield spacer is the least expensive part at 99 yen or $1. Beltline moldings, screws, bolts, springs, and license plate lamp lens are also featured, so yeah, Mazda has got you covered.

According to the century-old company, “these parts can be purchased through authorized dealers.” Don’t know about you, but I find it hard to believe that online orders aren’t offered, more so if you remember that the RX-7 is cherished all over the world, not only the Japanese market.

Sold in the United States until 1992, the FC3S was followed by the ever-popular FD3S. The final incarnation of the RX-7 stands out from the crowd thanks to a sequential twin-turbo rotary engine. One boosty snail runs at 10 PSI from 1,800 rpm while the second turbo fires up from 4,000 rpm.
