1993 BB Touring Build Thread

Thought it would be nice to keep a log of my car. I've enjoyed reading the other threads on here and have never made one before.

I purchased my 1993 Black RX-7 Touring in April of this year from an older gentleman that owned it since 2003 when it had ~33,000KM on it. It was pretty much a garage queen for most of that time and was barely driven. It was also kept in pretty much stock shape as well. Unfortunately it wasn't driven since late 2013 so there was a bit of work to do to it.

When I received the car I immediately went to work with reliability mods. I wanted to get the car running properly and reliably before doing any "fun" mods to it. Unfortunately, while getting these done it was apparent that the coolant seal had gone bad and I had a full rebuild done to the motor. The car had 57,700KM at this point. Here's a list of what has been done to the car.

Mods on the car when I got it:
- Pettit downpipe
- Cusco strut bar
- Autometer A-pillar 3 gauge pod
- R1 front lip

Work done since I've owned it:
- Koyo HH Radiator
- Pettit Aluminum AST
- All new OEM coolant hoses (all 17 from Ray)
- All new vacuum hoses
- New OEM fuel filter
- New OEM Thermostat
- OEM Spec NGK Spark Plugs and Wires
- 2 New OEM Oil injectors bolts
- New alternator belt
- Rebuilt motor
- Mild street port
- REC 2mm Apex seals
- Atkins corner seals
- Fixed passenger side window switch
- Exedy Stage 1 Clutch Kit
- Used OEM flywheel in excellent condition
- Banzai racing oil pan brace kit
- Banzai Racing SS Clutch line
- K&N Drop-in filter
- HKS Carbon Ti Catback (bought it used to replace broken stock muffler)
- New OEM exhaust gaskets
- Brand new Apexi Power FC and OLED Commander - stock tune (ordered from Nengun)
- Banzai racing commander bracket
- New OEM TB Gasket
- New OEM Wax pellet
- TB cleaned and serviced
- Neo Synthetic in Tranny and Diff
