Actually no it wouldnt immediately. As long as all your fuel and air lines are hooked up (i.e. vaccum) your fine! Because 1988 didnt have a programmed sync with it's computer to run with or without the turbo it has little affect. But, it will lag your power after you start sometimes it will shut off. But it does run without it. A turbo system is just a superman air induction system. Thats all.I have seen one drive without Turbo. Why would you need to run it without turbo anyways?
Hope this helps more than the other guy commenting.

Have you checked the PCV system?? If its stuck in the closed position then you will lack power and turbo boost. A vehicle needs 3 things to make it run proper; FUEL,FIRE and AIR. Try that and see if it helps.

I have a 1988 Mazda Rx-7 non-turbo and not all the time but every now and then when i go to start it it cranks but wont start. Is the engine flooding or is it something else?


I always start my '88 RX7 with a 2 start procedure. First start is short about 3 engine revs...second time it always starts.
If I don't do that it cranks & cranks.....try it.

1988 rx7 turbo starts and runs for 3-5 seconds and dies...


Check the injectors, make sure that they arent corroded aswell, and there is a way to convert vane into Maf but i wouldnt do it since they do the same thing. Just make sure the contacts on the inside of the potentiometer are not obstructed and and smooth. IF it is old then it would be ok to replace it. Check the wiring for any cracks to the vane airflow. Also the fuel pressure regulator check that and see waht the pressure is there with it on and off. That might be bad too.

Yes This Problem Could Be Your Mass Air Flow Senser. I would call bob at rhineharts auto parts his number is 717-405-6860 he will have the part. And his prices are really reasonable

Lack of power


rotaries are high-rev engines. most of the power will come at 3000+
