Location (US State/Canada/Int): VA

Vehicle: 93 Mazda Rx7 powered by LS1

The swap was performed by PTuning in Manassas, VA using Hinson swap parts (subframe, trans mount, torque arm, cooling system, etc.). The torque arm has since been removed and replaced with Samberg differential mount, which is a much better design. The previous owner owned the car for around 8 years and just used the car as a cruiser.

The car has been to Summit Point Main 2x once in November of 2012 and once at Hyperfest 2013 in June 2013. Both times the car performed beautifully without and off track incidents, temperature issues, or anything else out of the ordinary. Before the car ever went on track the necessary precautions were taken to make sure the car would remain reliable and happy. See below for modifications specifically made for track driving.

Im only selling the car because I recently put my deposit in for an 818 kit car from factory five racing. Ive discovered that the idea of building my vehicles is what I really enjoy.

Engine:
-LS1 from 2002 firebird
-LS6 intake manifold
-Hinson longtube headers 1 7/8 collectors
-Hinson Subframe powdercoated black
-High flow cats x2 (1 on each side)
-Apexi shotgun style catback Any rx7 catback will fit with the positioning of the hinson headers.
-Setrab 25 row oil cooler in passenger front ducting
-Oil thermostat set for 185*
-Canton 3 qt Accusump with electronic psi regulator below 35 psi oil pressure the accusump will send oil to the engine and above 40 psi the accusump will regain and maintain pressurized oil reserves.
-Improved Racing oil pan baffle
-Oil: Amsoil 5w-40
-Transmission: Mobile 1 synthetic ATF
-Differential: Mobile 1 75w-90
-Fluids changed within 500 miles

Suspension:
-Quantum Motorsports coilovers
-New Pillowball bushings x6 (less than 500 miles)
-New powerflex bushings: Rear upper/lower control arms, Front upper/lower control arms, and Sway bar mounts.
-Nylon differential bushings
-New improved racing rear sway bar endlinks
-New Mazda front sway bar endlinks
-Samberg differential mount

Brakes:
-Calipers all painted red quality job
-New open slot rotor rings on front racing brake 2-piece rotors
-Slotted rear discs
-Stainless brake lines all around
-Motul 600rbf flushed within 500 miles

Body:
-99 Spec Front Bumper
-New OEM lip
-Mazdaspeed replica side skirts
-Replica Diffuser
-New OEM splash gaurds.
-Rear wiper has been deleted
-Antenna has been shaved

Paint:
-Car painted Ferrari Red for 2004 color code During paint all windows/trim were removed as well as the engine.
-Car has been detailed by myself with no expenses or time spared and it shows.

Wheels:
-BBS RGR Wheels
-Front 17x8.5 with 245/40/17 Dunlop Star Specs with a lot of meat left
-Rear 17x9.5 with 265/40/17 Dunlop Star Specs with an equal amount of tread left

Interior:
-Authentic Bride Gias Sport Seats Has the correct tags and certificates of authenticity. I ordered these from Ravspec.
-Authentic Bride Rails sliding and adjustable
-Berber floor mats specific to the car very high quality
-Prosport oil temp, coolant temp, and oil pressure gauges in triple dash pod from prosport.
-Kenwood Headunit with USB and aux port
-5x7 Speakers Rockford Phosgate

Track Upgrades:
-All fluids were changed before both track days. The improved racing oil pan baffle, accusump, and oil cooler are all recommended modifications before tracking an LS engine. While tracking the car oil pressures have remained constant and oil temps peaked at 220* on an 80* day while running for 25 minute sessions.

Does everything work as it should on the car?
-The only gauge (stock or aftermarket) that doesnt work is the OEM oil pressure gauge. It probably could be returned to working status. However, I never hunted down why it wasnt working since I bought the car.

-Yes, the car does have working a/c. Tends to struggle a bit on really hot and humid days. But anytime its below 90* the car stays cool.

-The heat does not work. I never had a problem driving the car during winter without heat. Although I wasnt driving the car in anything other than sunny.

-Power windows, locks, etc. all work.

-Radio feature does not work due to the shaved antenna. I did purchase an antenna designed to be stashed under the dash. However, I havent installed it. But will include it with the car. The rest of the headunit works flawlessly.

The Bad: There is no such thing as a perfect car
-There is an ~1 inch crack in the bottom of the front bumper it lines up perfectly so is only seen when there is pressure on the front bumper like when youre washing it.
-The interior plastics around the cockpit (gauge surround, shifter surround etc.) are starting to show some age. Cheapest solution would be to wrap them with a flat black. Or you could have a body shop skim them with filler and then paint them with something glossy.
-There is a small hole in the leather shift boot. A redlinegoods shift boot would solve that problem.

Overall:
-The car is a pleasure to drive. It performs flawlessly on the track (as seen in my video) and rides as it should. The car gets a lot of attention from all sorts of car enthusiasts. The rx7 is a truly timeless design that has been maintained to the highest degree. The car has been stored in a garage without exception since Ive owned the car and has not been driven in the rain or snow. This car was just a fun nice day car.

These are pictures I took tonight. It had just stopped raining and I wasn't going to chance the clean car if it started raining again. I will take better sunlight pictures tomorrow and post them here.

I've already put a deposit down on the 818. A lot of really nice parts are being developed for this build.

Sell your car, buy mine?

Lowering price to $26,500 firm as it sits or $25,000 without the BBS wheels (OEM wheels would be used).
