TracieS : 1988 Mazda RX-7

Well I picked up a 88 rx7 today. Traded my wheels set of centra 7's and a little cash for it. Its just a shell overall pretty mint no motor or tranny. paint in decent shape great starting point for a v8 swap. Most likely will being carbed v8 for simplcity and the fact I have everything I need to build a decent sbc in the back of my garage.

Plans are to use a granny sped shop mount kit
Decent set of full body coil overs
Chaser vanish body kit
My 16x8 volk progressiv mesh that are currenlty on my accord

Going to pick up the car tomorrow so ill update with more pics then. Im pretty excited to get back into v8's and a different make import. And RWD again lol


Going for somthing like this when im finished

Didn't figure you would exterior wise being the one you're getting is in decent shape. Was more or less talking mod wise, but most common is a SBC instead of a SBF.

crazymikey is very helpful crazymikey is very helpful
I can only imagine how much fun this thing is gonna be.

Rotary or not, RX7s are just plain awesome.

I used to have 2 FC's, except the ones I had were total POS's.

Well I just ordered a 5.3 for it I might as well do it right the first time. Ill throw in a bigger cam ls1 intake and call it day. But here comes the fun part trying to find a ls t56 tranny.

You don't want an LS1 intake. They're junk. You want either an LS2 intake with an aftermarket 90mm throttle body or an LS6 intake with an OEM 78mm LS1/LS6 throttle body.

Maybe he ment a carbureted intake. I know if using vortec heads and a carb setup you need the vortec specific intake.

I really want a ls6 but gotta take what I can find because the truck manifold is way to tall to even run a hood.

Looks like the previous owner was an Initial D fan (Red Suns decal). I'm not a fan of V8 swap in RX-7s imo it ruins the name Rotary eXperiment 7, and makes the suspension wonky. I respect you for your choice on engine replacement. To each his own. Can't wait for the outcome

Oh I know it is, but the gains from either an LS6 over an LS2 are significant. The LS6 manifold is the only difference between the LS1 engines produced from '97-'00 and the ones from '01-'04. GM calls it 5hp but dynos show a lot more. An LS1 camshaft should be dirt cheap to come by and it would make for a decent boost in power and excellent driveability.
