Hey Sarge! I e-mailed John and here's his reply:

>>I vaguely remember writing it.

It must have been back in 1982 or thereabouts. I was editor of Import Parts and Accessories -- a trade magazine. Somewhere I should have a copy of the issue, but it's buried under 28 years of magazines collected since then!<<

I politely asked him if he could avoid getting hurt, to try to find that needle in his haystack for you. I'll let you know if he shoots back with anything more.

Also do a search in Google Books, there are scans from old magazines with comparison tests. I just read one Popular Science from 1984 with RX-7, Corvette, and 300ZX.

Yes, I have that article. Mine looked identical with the same engine, wheels etc. but had the RB 4 barrel Holley.

I used to be good friends with the owner of Rotary Engineering back in the early eighties and the staff, Mike and Joe. RE closed down because of the local DA. Some clown out ran some cops and they couldn't catch him , the RX7 was too fast. When they finally did they impounded the RX and went through it , found out why. They went after RE for selling race parts for the street. RE said they sell the parts with a statement they are for "off road use only". The DA said too bad and said his office would take them to court for every header and exhaust part they cited, even if RE won in court they would keep trying them in other words bankrupt them so RE closed down.

A ported 13b in that first gen car would kick an early 928's ***, not even close. I owned a later 928 GTS and my RX-7 with just 225 hp was as fast as my late model 928. (That was before the nitrous and the blower).

I'm now curious about this article myself.
That's an awesome yet sad story. I hate it when one person screws it up for everyone else. Mike and Joe still hang around or what happened to them after this?

So a friend/co-worker of mine told me about an old magazine he had from 1980.
Apparently the cover was a first gen. rally car. I know have him hunting for it.

I don't think this was posted yet. I have a bunch of stuff left over from when my grandmas dealership closed down, I'll try to get some more posted.

17 issues of TISP put out by Rx7 club. Tons of cool stuff in these. Owner submitted mods, engine rebuild, carb and exhaust install/tuning, you name it.
