Check Out My LS Turbo Swapped. Jim Lab 8.8 Conversion All New 1,500 Miles

For Sale 30,000
Well this is going to be a long write up. First to save your time i would like to say if you do not plan on spending $30,000 on this car please don't waste your time. This car was over $60,000 to build and is one of the baddest RX7 in the country and if you don't believe that do your research and then come back. This is a one of a kind car you might see an ls swapped Rx7 but when have you seen a Rx7 with a built ls and turbo? This car is flawless. I will swear on my word if you are the buyer and you show up and find one paint chip or sand chip anywhere on this car you can have it. I have included pics of the front lower and corners of the front bumper area so you can see. This car has around 1500 miles on this build. The RX7 runs and drives incredible with no noises in the interior of loose panels,air leaks or driveability noises at all. It has incredible power and it's only currently running the 7 pound spring and the motor is built to run up to the 25 pound spring. The car currently is making 553 rear wheel horse power with the 7 pound spring but really only building about 5 pounds of boost due to the loss of boost going threw the inter-cooler and stainless piping. The car weighs in at 2750 pounds without a driver.
I do have all paperwork to show what i am saying including a 35,000 appraisal when the car did not have the current turbo set up in it also showing the expenses of the motor build and the transmission and the 2004 mustang cobra 8.8 independent rear center section that was bought new with the chromoly Jim lab cradle rear diff holder and [email protected] titanium axles and corba rear calipers with drilled and slotted rotors. The list goes on and is included in both the pics so you can see as well as below. This RX7 is serious. Currently running 7 pound spring it makes 553 to the rear wheels. Install the 18 pound spring and tune and it will make over 800 horse power at the rear wheels but believe me when i tell you at 7 pounds it's good and handles the power very well i thing anything over 600-700 will be too much as the tires have no problem breaking loose at all and it has new Dunlop Durreza 285-30-18 on it now and they are sticky tires.

If you are looking to own one of the baddest RX7 in the country for whatever you want to do drift,Drag,or Autocross then this is the car at half of what it would cost you to build. I prefer to not see the car go to someone who will track it and put a roll cage in it because the exterior and interior is flawless the seats are new as well as the rest of the interior does not have any signs of wear at all. The gauges are all new and the car is the original chase white with no body damage ever to this car. I will give any serious buyer the vin and you can do a car fax to it if you like and also my personal number to call e with any questions you may have



This is my ls swapped turbocharged rx7 that has a pro 5 t56 6 speed and a jim lab 2004 Cobra 8.8 conversion. It's currently making 553 at 7 pounds of boost and will make over 800 at 15 pounds rear wheel horsepower. The car has a lot of mods. I am going to put it up for sale i think for $30k








2006 ls Z06 motor with callies crank and rods, Diamond forged pistons, Crowler turbo cam,317 heads with complete roller valve train. Team fast intake and 90mm throttle bodie with so so much more to list about it along with the 76mm turbonetics turbo . The motor is only running the 7 pound spring at the moment for just an everyday kinda of ride making 553 rear wheel on pump gas..The motor is built to hold 25pounds.





Blacked out rear lights and Shrine rear spoiler and rear diffuser.





Jim Lab cradle with new 2004 Cobra independent rear posi center section with 373 gears and [email protected] titanium axles and cv joints fully adjustable pinion angle. Also this is the chromoly Jim Lab version that i don't think they make anymore..





New black leather re skinned seats. Hot rod chassis wiring harness and psi engine harness





Speed Hut Gauges

Do you have any pictures of the car on a scale? How did you take out so much weight?

The car has aluminum fenders and hood. No heater box of controls-No radio or speakers-Aftermarket harness. The under insulation has been removed. The motor is the aluminum block and heads. The rear cradle is chromoly. The axles are titanium and inner bumpers are replaced with the urethane ones. There are a few other things that were done but i'd have to call the builder

The FD's stock hood is aluminum. I ask because your weight listed is a good at least 300lbs less than my car and I just don't see it when you have all of that turbo weight added and a full interior. Looking at it and your setup I would guess yours would be at least 2900-3000lbs.
