me (a newbie) thinks that fc means a "generation" of a rx-7...
or am I wrong here?

Let me break down the rotary engines even further,because those links you provided didn't do so.The letters in the rotary engine codes aren't just some specific engine classification method,they're the actual displacement of the engines themselves as well,the A or B classifys the form of fuel injection.

The 12A comes from the 1.2 litre displacement.All the engines with an A are carburated.All of the engines with a B have electronic fuel injection.And so forth
13B=1.3 litre displacement,electornically fuel injected
13B-REW=the same with twin turbos.
20B=2.0 litre displacement,twin turboed also.
i'll have to correct you there

12 is 1.2l displacement and the A is the size of the rotor.
13 is 1.3l displacement and the B is the size of the rotor. (a bit bigger, hence larger displacement)

in the early rx's with 13B's, they were carby fed, and some 12A's were injected so the letter has nothing to do with that.

in relation to the fc "generation" question

an fb (not commonly called that) is a 1st generation rx7. Series 1,2 and 3.

an fc is a 2nd generation rx7. Series 4 and 5

and an fd is a 3rd generation rx7. series 6,7 and 8

all have different body shapes to their catagory.

Just a correction for your Mazda engine breakdown.

12A - 1.2L carb'd twin rotor
12AT - 1.2L carb'd twin rotor turbo
13B - 1.3L EFI twin rotor
13BT - 1.3L EFI twin rotor turbo
13B-RE - 1.3L EFI twin rotor twin turbo
13B-REW - 1.3L EFI twin rotor twin turbo
20B - 2.0L EFI triple rotor twin turbo
R26B - 2.6L EFI quad rotor

Just in case you wanted a rotorheads point of view on the issue.

what about the old rx's that came out with a 13b (not efi), i think the rx4.

so not all 13b's are efi, thats what i was trying to say above.and the 12a turbo came with a computer (EFI)

Not a bad post, but isn't ASM Auto Stability Management?
I could be wrong, or I could be right....
