We present results for the electron-impact excitation of N-like Fe as part of the RmaX network. R-matrix theory using an intermediate-coupling frame transformation method is used to obtain level-resolved collision strengths. Separate calculations are performed using different target expansions. The first is a 215 level close-coupling calculation which has the 2s2 2p3, 2s 2p4, 2p5, 2s2 2p2 3l, and 2s 2p3 3l configurations while the second calculation also includes the levels from the 2s2 2p2 4l configurations for a total of 302 close-coupling levels. The effect of the additional resonant enhancement of the larger calculation is explored and compared with a previous IRON Project report and other, more recent, calculations. As a final comparison, we model an astrophysical plasma using the results of the present calculations and previous work.
