I think its pretty cool. im not sure if anyone else has done it. personally I would have left it a rotary but to each his own.
Unique! 1993 rx7 w/621whp swap for trade

...be interesting to see that viper rear end too.

There was one with a grand national swap for sale on the forum a couple years back for around $16k. May be the same car as it was black also going from memory.

a reliable turbo S2k, right. followed up with a 4 banger domestic engine.

i must be dreaming and the world did end last month.

very unique and also very strange, like the sound from the cosmo transplanted Chevy Nova.

the s2k swap is just retarded to me. i had a 03 s2k in 2010, and yes, it was a fun car, but it wasnt that great..

I'm pretty sure it's the same car (how many black RX7's with tan seats and GN engines/viper rear ends are there), it was on the norotors site and listed as sold in November 2011, the text is the same text that was up before too.
