Well I haven't updated this in a very long time lol. The RX7 got ignored basically most of the summer. I moved into a nicer apartment, bought a new car a 2008 Mazda 3 GT, its an awesome DD. Work was insane last summer! Unforunately I was too busy spending money on other things, working a lot, working saturdays, generally too tired to work on it.
I have received an amazing job offer actually at a previous employer, way better schedule, hours and pay. I've gone over the list for the car and its pretty short now only need a clutch kit to drop the engine and trans in. I start my new job soon and should be able to get this thing done by the start of summer! I hope.

Anyway, heres to an awesome 2014!

Here is the engine for the car. I plan on completing the turbo swap later. For now I'm going to drive it NA with a Holley 4160 650 vac sec carb. Its being rebuilt I've got 4150 centre float bowls, converted secondary side to metering block, jet extensions, not sure about jets yet, nitrophyl floats. Be good for racing and autocross.



S4 Irons, massive streetport, pineapple exhaust porting, s5 TII rotors 9.0:1, racing beat tII holley manifold, fidanza aluminum flywheel, f1 stage 2 clutch, racing beat underdrive pulley



And here it is in the car, currently running on ford 15x7 wheels. I dont like them and ill be getting some steel racing wheels.



Close up

Updates! I've been hard at work. The car runs now, engine bay is complete.




Engine bay is completely assembled. Need to tune the carb still.

Nothing yet. I read that a TII yoke would swap onto the GSL shaft...so I bought one and sold my TII swap shaft I already had..stupid mistake as clearly the TII ujoints are bigger than FB so thats not going to work.
Guess Im gonna have to get one made.
