Need help with tune. Please.......

OK, I was looking for someone that has some expertise on rx7's. I could use a tune and maybe some minor details on the engine work. It seems like no one in my area works on rotarys. So please, let me know if anyone knows some local or close, that could help me. Thanks.

We might be able to point you in the proper direction, or teach you how to fish?

What are the issues?

The problems are idling problem, it has the tendency to jump up to 1,000 rpms to 1,700 rpms. When I start the car, it blows out white smoke. Also when I get on it, light throttle it blows out white smoke out of the exhaust. The engine is large street port, to keep in mind.

What generation, model, and year is it? Specifically, n/a vs turbo etc. List any and all mods done to the car if you can.

White smoke would typically indicate burning coolant. The source of which could be the motor itself, or the turbocharger if you have one. Has the coolant reservoir dropped in level any?

It's 93 R1, converted to single turbo. Mods right now are large street port engine, 550 primary, 2200 secondaries, dual walbro fuel pumps, hks twin power Ignition, front mount intercooler, gt4088r turbo, full 3 inch exhaust, and 50/50 water/meth kit. I think you might be right, it might be a coolant issue. Maybe a seal shot. I pulled the turbo out and no oil leak in the exhaust side housing. It has no play at all either. But like I said, I could really use someone's expertise on my tune and motor. Also thanks for the help.

Is the turbo a water cooled turbo or just oil?

If it is just oil, the next step would be to verify the motor can hold and maintain coolant pressure.

The turbo is water cooled and oil. I haven't tried the coolant pressure yet.

The turbo as well as the motor could be suspect then.
