Have the compression checked by a shop that knows how to do a compression test on a rotary engine. Rx-7's all smell like they are running to 'rich'. Its just the way they are, rx-7's use alot of fuel and have very agressive fuel trims while running. If it is flooding the engine alot, you may have a weak chamber, apex seal(s) or side rotor seal(s). By no means take your rx-7 to the local shop and expect 'expert' diagnosis of a rotary engine. Take it too a 'rotary' specialised shop or a Mazda dealer.
