hi there my name is jason and i just got on here so here goes -ive had 2 rx 7s now the first one was an 87 and i put a 327 small block chevy in it with a muncie 4 speed hydro. clutch scattershield and the whole bit.---i just sold that one last week --now im starting on my next one an 88 turbo 2 rx -this ones getting a 462 big block chevy and a m-22 4 speed --wondering if anyone has done this yet ?i think my only hurdles are going to be the brake booster getting in the way and the steering shaft ---the oil pan might need to be cut in the front to gain rack clearence ---any help?---oh im a machinist and have a full machine shop at home----------Jason
well ive about got the full size big block radiator mounted (tall order) as the big block rad is mounted as far forward as i can get it .i removed the 2 inch tube in the front that mounts the horns and the res.return tube for the power steering pump it looks like i now have around 36 inches to the lip on the firewall to the dowl on the water pump.(the big block is 32 inches long rear mounting flange to water pump.had to box in the frame and remove almost an inch section on each side to make room fo the tanks of the radiator .the bottom of the rad. will be even with the front spoiler (well a lil up in the air )the mount will be even though . there is a big difference in width of the bbc compared to the small block .leaves only 4 inches a side clearence for manifolds or headers.i will get er done in time ---jason
