So, now i know how to post pictures - this is my baby!

Although it's going to change a lot over the next couple of weeks. Currently the enigne is being rebuilt (by myself) and it is going to go from twin turbo to single turbo, so the engine bay won't looked so cramped. And it develop more power to boot!  :)

Dead easy to get power from. I had 300bhp from a what was most likely a poor compression engine. It can be quite pricey though, to get power from them, but it's not difficult to get 400+bhp. In comparison to a skyline or supra though, i think they are quite a bit cheaper to get decent power from them.

i was seriously considering an rx7 before my v6, maybe when i can afford a weekender car i will get one.
big fan of the rx7, managed to talk a few owners into letting me drive theirs and was smitten.
for me it has everything, looks, performance and handling.
