wooooot, just got it yesterday, loving everything except the 3.40 gears, ewwww, i need 3.90s. Please give me your input, let me know what you think. i decided on my next car after lots of bouncing around and analysis ranging from evos to C5s to audis to cobras to single turbo rx7s to supras tooooooo.....
Car: 1993 Vintage Red RX-7 Touring Package
Engine: 2001 LS1 Transplant from a 2001 Z28, engine has 28k miles
i didn't take the pics, those are the pics from the for sale ad, i'll clean the car up and get some of "my" pics of it later. cost $19k, i jumped on it cause it is as clean of a slate as you can get considering it is an LS1 FD.
my previous car was sponsored by BFG and that sponsorship will transfer over to this RX-7, so tires aren't a problem, but i agree, the fronts are ~30% tread and the rears are 70% w/ that patch.
--2000 TypeR fully bored/blueprinted/built/balanced/boosted running 14psi daily and 20psi on race 375whp & 450whp, the built jun head had a redline of 10.5k....it was INSANE, check it out in the july 2006 (current month) edition of Honda-Tuning, or not, i sold it for $23k on friday.
HOLY SHIT that ITR is my good friend Tyler's old car. Tyler stopped by the other day since he was in town and I got to check out his evo (your old one). That ITR was badass though, I tried to talk him outa getting rid of it lol. Regardless, congrats on the LS1 FD purchase.

Congrats on the purchase. I test drove the car a few times when I was really interested in it. Didn't end up picking it up because like you said, the interior is pretty beat. Good luck with it, take care of it, it's a beautiful car from the outside as you can see and driving that thing is a blast. Once my rotary's life is up, I'll be going to same route. Enjoy!
*why cant i edit my 1st post, oh well, here's some pics from this morning*
YGTBSM -- hinson did an awesome job on the swap, everything looks great now that it's all cleaned up (spent a little time on it this morning and man, 100% better)...if you are able to be without your car for the time that hinson has the car and can get on the list, i recommend it...but put an LS2 in .
2MCHPWR -- I personally dont know if the gears are 3.40s or not, that is just what the previous owner told me and i took his word for it. i guess i need a chart of speeds in certain gears w/ the 3.73s, 3.90s, 4.10s and 3.40s for good measure so i can figure out which ones i have....annoying.
