still haven't driven the car yet but i did install new spark plugs today and let it idle for about two hours in my driveway.

I'm currently looking for some new literature about tuning rx7s. Anyone have any suggestions?

here is another short video.

Yeah due to the brand new bearings I will be keeping it below 4k rpms for a couple thousand miles.

And speaking of books, look what just came in the mail!

I'm at 500 miles already and it's driving really smooth! I haven't exactly been babying it either, it's just to much fun!

just read through the entire build
question about the double sheave main drive pulley. Per the RB website they don't recommend use for turbo applications, because power is made in lower RPM. You also have a whole punched or light weight flywheel which reduces rotating mass as well.
I was staying away from reducing the rotating mass assuming it would effect my midrange power band, does the power band just move to higher RPM?
Do you notice a higher revving engine or less torque because of those items?
I drift also using stock t2 pulley/flywheel, I'm wondering if there would be an advantage to installing the RB pulley on the turbo motor.
