    Plans for the 7 are...extensive. I still haven't fleshed out the whole project but I'll start hoarding parts soon enough. As she sits right now it's in good shape, already has a cork sport header and cat back, better filter for the intake and it's sitting on some Tokico blues and some aftermarket springs. The wheels, while ugly are 18x8 I think so I have a good footprint. That means its fun and pretty well sorted for now so I'm in no rush to push her into the non-running project category.

    The 2 I'm planning on selling soon hopefully. Car payments suck ass.

    Best of luck getting an FD though, you should make your way out to DGRR in April next year!

    My daily has a hardtop....unfortunately haha on top of the 7 I have an '11 Mazda2, not a bad commuter.

    Funny choices, I was looking at both of those as well a while back. I love S2000's and I really wanted a subie wagon haha I think my next car is gonna be an 8 though lol

    Nice call on the FD though, love 'em to death I just never see myself in one for some reason. Can't pull myself away from FCs for some reason

    It's going man, just working and all that. Just bought another RX-7 a couple weeks ago actually haha '91 Vert.

    What kind of car are you looking at getting? Something fun?

    Depends, I've seen some conversions where people cut into the firewall and make some more space for it further back and lower and I've seen some where people just cram it in as is(with more minor modifications than the former option). I would personally do the firewall modification to keep it more in sync but since I haven't driven the two side by side(or at all for that matter) so I can't comment on if handling is negatively affected by keeping it higher and further forward.

    LSx is actually lighter weight than the 1.6 or 1.8 liter motors in them stock since the V8 is an aluminum block and the I-4 is an iron. Here's a link to my friend Glen's build, he does damn good work and like I said...that car is absolutely mental with relatively "minor" bolt ons to the engine. http://www.rx7club.com/showthread.php?t=871853

    Like do they take the MSM motor and stick it into an older car? It can and has been done but from what I've seen unless you have a full motorset from an MSM sitting around it's not really worth it since you can build yourself a turbo kit and run a standalone and have more power without screwing around with the different wiring harnesses for as much as or cheaper. Check out clubroadster.net or miata.net if you want to peruse some builds.

    Hey dude, Miatas aren't very quick unfortunately. 0-60 for a stock 1.6 NA is about 9 seconds so if you're looking for straight line performance out of the box look elsewhere. What they do well is handle like a dream, slap a good suspension on it and carve the twisties and you'll forget about it's dismal straight line speed. Not to mention they're cheap, reliable, easy to work on and get good mileage to boot. Also the community is huge so getting aftermarket parts is easy. If you think you'll want more power look into investing into a turbo or supercharger kit, they're all over the place and the stock motors handle boost well. Hope this helps.
