    They use to do GTX swaps, first people to start doing it basicly. They also offered various suspension parts.

    YES. If you don't buy the whole car, ATLEAST buy the two caliper brackets! FINALLY settle thius debate for us!

    But - yes, buy the car. How much dot hey want? Where'd you find it? Even if you don'yt fix it, the parts inside the car are worth whatever you pay for it.


    grill (if it's not smashed, can't tell) gtx engine if it has one, suspension parts, etc. Do it.

    P.S. - get the caliper brackets.

    agreed with the calipers... that car uses RX7 braking system...

    and it's not quite a GTX swap. it does use the GTX turbo and mani, but the intake manofold is stock GT... and I don't know what kind on management they used...

    according to the article, it's not actually a GTX engine. it's just the BP with lowered compression, turbo'd (with an IHI it says, so prolly the vj20) and intercooled, with a free-flow exhaust and they used their own engine management (prolly some sorta chipped ECU). good for 220bhp it turns out.

    that hatch spoiler would probably look better if the car didnt have the regular spoiler on it

    I want one too, it would go good with my grill. I would also be very very interested in learning exactly how they did those brakes.
