My First Rotary Build

Hey all, I recently picked up a little less than a rolling shell for my first rx7. Still had to source 5 lug hubs for the front, brake calipers, power steering system, and halfshafts. Working on rebuilding an engine to throw in as well as a transmission. Interior looks damn new and the exterior isn't too bad either apart from a bit of denting in the driver's side door and paint.

I've always been intrigued by the rotary engine so I'm putting a stock N/A 13b back in and working on suspension and braking before doing anything to the engine. My end goal is to turn it into a fun drift car and see how that goes.

Keep it up. We will probably be doing similar mods.

Are you attempting a casual drifter as well?

Nice. Yeah, goal number one is to get it running. Then probs powered by Max coils and the suspension to keep it from giving me crazy camber. Dual exhaust for sure. Thinking about a hydraulic e-brake but should be fine to start with stuck.

Yeah. My list of stuff after i get the car running is purely tall people mods. IM 6'3 and my head is an inch from the roof. Swap the steering wheel out so i can get in and out. Cut the seat mounts out and drop the seat about 1-2 inches. Im looking for seats that would be good for someone with wide hips.
