I hate when that happens...but that's certainly the only solution.

I'd agree with Mahjik. You "might" be able to get by with the stock radiator if you install some proper ducting and run distilled water with little or no coolant. This will certainly depend on...

Talking Hilarious!!!

I can't stop watching this. That's the funniest fucking thing I've seen in quite a while. By a long shot. I particularly like the driver's use of the parking brake.

And who is the idiot...

I'm glad it worked out for you. Again, with the check valves and plugged stock inlet I was able to run as little as 2 gallons, but with the 3rd Gen's appetite for fuel, that's cutting it pretty close...

Thumbs up Nick's good guy.

A brake upgrade can be a large investment, so your concern is understandable.

However, I've done business with Nick for years as has my brother and numerous RX-7 colleagues. I've never had a...

I wouldn't say you got waxed either, except for Oak Tree and the straight that follows. Notice how you stay with him on the front straight but not...

Agree with the tire diameters, however, 295s are not necessarily 10mm wider (though they're supposed to be). My 295-30-18 P-Zero Assymeticos are about and inch wider than the 285-30s. Go figure.

Stock toe links and trailing arms will be fine. You shouldn't have issues with rubbing up front as long as the ride height isn't too low. I recommend 25.5" to the top of the front fender using...

Yes, it's possible. I managed 362 RWHP at 12.5 PSI on a 35R and stock ports. AFRs were in the mid 11s.

You do realize that there's a hell of a lot more to it than machining brackets and attaching the calipers and lines?
