what kind of fuel filter is it and who replaced it? fuel filters have a certain path of 'flow' that the fuel goes. make sure the filter is facing the proper direction. were your plugs gapped correctly?

its a stock replacemaent filter, i had my cousin install it, figuring it should be easy its only a filter.now it starts up but after 5 mins it starts spuddering until it stalls. we seen a vacum line had a small crack in it so i replaced that too.still same results. it seems like something with the fuel i just hope its not the Apex seals :(

ive seen something about your problem talked about on
www.rx7club.com. they should be able to help you out over
there. i wanted a rx7 for a long time and would always surf the
forum checking stuff out. in the end i decided they were more
problems then fun. i still wouldnt mind getting one though if i
hit the lottery

but did you understand what i said? most fuel filters have a flow pattern, and if you install it backwards(easy to do if you dont pay attention), then things fuck up.

double check it.
