Now offering the most sought after intercooler kit for the FD RX-7! The most complete, most comprehensive intercooler kit ever made, the GReddy V-Layout, aka, V-mount system.

What is a V-Mount?

Quite simple, there are a few terms people use regarding intercooler setups.

One is “SMIC“, or in FD speak, means stock mounted intercooler, or a stock location mounted intercooler. It’s exactly what it sounds like. The tiny, inefficient, heat soaked prone Mazda unit is upgraded with either a similar sized, but thicker, intercooler core that is typically made of aluminum or a much larger intercooler that reworks the air ducting work and normally requires a different air cleaner/intake/turbo inlet duct.

Pros: least expensive option, installation is typically straight forward if you’re remotely mechanically inclined, great for a bump in power on stock twin turbos, very low key and not in your face, typically does not require a tune (although always recommended)

Cons: limits higher horsepower, for some SMIC kits, it reuses the OEM rubber hoses, which limit airflow and can crack/break which causes boost leaks, and blowing off couplers/pipes.

A “FMIC” system means front mounted intercooler, or basically where the location of the intercooler moves from inside of the hot engine bay to the best place possible for cooler air, the front opening of the bumper. A FMIC is very popular for most every turbocharged car as the charge air gets as cold as possible with as much real estate as possible resulting in lower air temps and easier horsepower.

Pros: Heat soak is less likely as it is not in engine bay, typically most FMICs are MUCH larger than OEM which allows for better and cooler charge air, allows for higher horsepower, looks good with most front bumpers, cleans up engine bay by removing a lot of plastics and rubber hoses.

Cons: Although charge air is cooler, intercooler is now placed in FRONT of radiator, resulting in less airflow to radiator and subject to hotter water temps, same for Air conditioner condenser, most FMIC kits require cutting of certain parts of car, requires much more work for installation, more expensive than SMIC, typically requires a tune as boost pressure increases.

TMIC” refers to top mounted intercooler, or when the location of the intercooler rests on top of the engine, which does not exist on the FD RX-7, but does on the FC RX-7.

A “VMIC“, aka, “V-Mount” system is most commonly used on FD RX-7’s compared to other cars. The “V” refers to the orientation of both the radiator and intercooler from a side view. Whereas the the FMIC has both the radiator and intercooler standing upright, one after the other like dominoes, the VMIC allows outside air to reach both the intercooler (which is usually on the top side of the ‘V’) and radiator at the same time, not prioritizing one over the other. This is typically the most ideal setup for most RX-7’s.

Pros: 100% of incoming air is spread out between the intercooler and radiator evenly for maximum cooling efficiency, boost response is typically better because hard pipes leading to intercooler are shorter, cleans up engine bay by removing a lot of the OEM rubber hoses and plastics, allows for higher horsepower over stock.

Cons: By far the most expensive option, installation takes much longer, electric fans hang very low on underside of the car due to radiator orientation, requires either a smaller battery to be used, or relocated to the rear of the car altogether, aftermarket intake/air cleaner/turbo inlet ducts required.

 

The GReddy V-Mount kit was designed to be the end-all system to get for even the most discerning FD enthusiast. This kit comes with every single nut, bolt, bracket, pipe, hose that you will need. The only thing that is required from either version of the kit is a battery relocation to the rear of the car. As with all aftermarket parts, as you increase airflow and/or boost, it is recommended you perform a tune after installation. Confirmed to work with all manual transmission equipped FD3S RX-7’s with 13B-REW engines.

There are MANY different configurations of the GReddy Vmount kit, but we will only carry 3 versions, which we find are the most common.

Because the USDM spec Mazda RX-7 only came as a zenki 1993-1995 model, we will carry this version that will include:

  • 4″ thick SPEC-R offset inner fin intercooler with V-Mount specific, mirror finished aluminum end tanks, designed for high boost, high horsepower applications
  • All aluminum 2 layer wide high efficiency, fully buffed and polished radiator with tapped ports for water temp sensors, V-mount specific ends with embossed GReddy logo
  • High buffed, polished, compression tube featuring embossed GReddy logo
  • Twin complete suction kit featuring Airinx Type B foam air filter elements
  • Air separation tank relocation bracket
  • Power steering relocation lines and brackets
  • Fuse box relocation brackets
  • Reinforced silicone couplers featuring printed GReddy logos with matching clamps
  • Super high mirror finished intercooler pipes for both turbo (hot) and intake (cold) sides
  • Aluminum air guides/plates for both intercooler and radiator
  • Electric fan extension harness specific to zenki 93-95 chassis
  • Air conditioning relocation hard lines*
  • Air conditioning condenser relocation brackets**
  • Hard aluminum radiator relocation pipe***
  • Clear silicone tubing for various coolant lines with matching clamps
  • Polished elbow pipe with embossed GReddy logo for OEM Y-pipe (93-95)
  • Various brackets and bolts anodized black, insulating foam strips with double sided tape to seal gaps
  • Instructions written in Japanese with diagrams

*For zenki 93-95 models, new pipes require slight bending

**Will work on Denso equipped air conditioned models

***Requires cutting of your OEM rubber hose or aftermarket silicone hose

For those of you running the Chuki 1996-1998 and Kouki 1999-2002 models, an alternate kit is available which includes:

  • All aluminum 2 layer wide high efficiency, fully buffed and polished radiator with tapped ports for water temp sensors, V-mount specific ends with embossed GReddy logo
  • High buffed, polished, compression tube featuring embossed GReddy logo
  • Twin complete suction kit featuring Airinx Type B foam air filter elements
  • Air separation tank relocation bracket
  • Power steering relocation lines and brackets
  • Fuse box relocation brackets
  • Reinforced silicone couplers featuring printed GReddy logos with matching clamps
  • Super high mirror finished intercooler pipes for both turbo (hot) and intake (cold) sides
  • Aluminum air guides/plates for both intercooler and radiator
  • Electric fan extension harness specific to chuki/kouki 96-02 chassis
  • Air conditioning relocation hard lines
  • Air conditioning condenser relocation brackets
  • Hard aluminum radiator relocation pipe*
  • Clear silicone tubing for various coolant lines with matching clamps

And for those of you running a custom single turbo conversion on your FD, we also offer the standard kit which includes:

  • 4″ thick SPEC-R offset inner fin intercooler with V-Mount specific, mirror finished aluminum end tanks, designed for high boost, high horsepower applications
  • All aluminum 2 layer wide high efficiency, fully buffed and polished radiator with tapped ports for water temp sensors, V-mount specific ends with embossed GReddy logo
  • High buffed, polished, compression tube featuring embossed GReddy logo
  • Air separation tank relocation bracket
