Well my brother picked up this 87 gen 2 Rx 7 turbo yesterday.

It has a 2 rotor motor in it that has been street ported and has less that 3000 miles on it! It also has a real nice intercooler in it.

It came with a couple extra sets of rims and tires, as well as tons of other parts....... and 2 extra turbos, one stock and one not......















and a vid of it going down the street after unloading it....

Right click and save as

I can't wait to drift this thing........

now that is a nice car. it's the hardtop, even better.
my grampa had an '87.... red. very similar to that one. the first week he had it, he put a dent in the hood from hitting a golfball at it (he didn't think it would go that far). but yeah, he said the handling sucked in rainy weather (or any weather for that matter) - so i hear ya' on the drifting.

He gave 3 grand for everything... He had to match someone from detroit that wanted to pick it up the day he did, but since he had already talked to the owner he had first shot @ it. If you downloaded the vid the car was not runninr right in it and it still ran fast. He found out that one of the plug wires was not sending any spark (each rotor has 2 spark plugs Leading=main and Trailing=emissions cleanup) and the leading one was not fireing on the front rotor. We have that fixed and it runs better but when it is held around 2000 to 3000 revs it bounces 500 revs instead of staying, and we think that is the TPS so that is next. The previous owner had another Rx 7 like it that we got lots of parts from as he is V8 powering it for the drags. He got out of this Rx 7 and is going to buy a 3rd gen Rx 7.

We will post times from the strip and video
I want to take my V6 powered 86 GT and he will run his Rx7.

Try a grounding system on it. Rx7 always have a problem with gounds. ground a wire from the coil pack to the engine and then back to the frame. that most of the time clears up the studder they get. We sell HKS grounding wire kits for the FC at CorkSport if you want a clean looking ground kit.

they've got a ton of very very useful articles and tech stuff over there. I was looking a few weeks back at getting an '87 N/A, but decided not to. i think I'm glad, because I've got too many cars as it is..

That is a HELL of a sweet deal, for 3K with everything!!

There's a woman over here in troy who is selling her 1st gen 85 RX-7 GS for a grand. It's got 105K on it and it's in great shape. I test drove it a few days ago.

It was pretty fun to drive. The road feel was superb, but the power wasn't quite there. It had the 12A in it.
