New FD owner in ATL area

Just purchased my first RX-7 a couple days ago. Looking forward to learning everything about this car and the modding community.

The previous owner said they were spirit r wheels. I'll take a closer look when i get home and get the other details if I can find them. I'm pretty sure it's a 18" wheel too.

As far as I can tell they’re BBS RGR’s in diamond black. Not actual spirit r’s
225/45R18 front
245/40R18 back

Engine and turbos were replaced at 81000. Not sure exactly why. I suspect a turbine impeller separated and shredded the engine on its way through but your guess is as good as mine.

A ton a small projects to work on... replace shifter grommets and boots, fix mirror switch, power antenna, etc.

Nice! I just moved to Smyrna as well (right next to The Battery) and bought my FD last year. Currently converting to single turbo as we speak. Mine is BB as well.

Sounds like you got quite the project on your hands bud. I'm just west of Village Green in downtown.
