That paint color will pop in the sun!  Will be a very fun project.

I sell the MSD Atomic intake if you plan to run one.  They make more power than the FAST 92/102.  You need to search on clearance for the firewall/hood.

I did some researching and the MSD is bigger than the 102 so it would be a task to get it in the engine bay. I think I am just going to go with a Fast 92 or Ported stock intake.

Well it has been a long time but finally got time from the sand box to ship all my goodies to mazcare. I am dropping off my car today. Friday I dropped off my engine transmission and suspension parts. So when I get back in June my car should be ready to drive....

Well today I met Charlie from MAZCARE and what a great guy. So knowledgeable on RX7s I totally forgot to take pictures of his shop and all the RX7s in his shop. So I dropped off my car today and I trust that charlie will do a wonderful job...Best get my pocket book ready for this one. One thing i look for in any shop is how organized the layout is. I admit the layout is duplicate to my engine builder so I am very very pleased. Not a messy shop and so clean all around with no open tools anywhere that i seen....That is a good sign of a organized owner.......IMO....This guy don't mess around. While I was driving back home he called me to let me know the status of my parts and noticed what i was missing....Well done....That is what I am talking about...The bad news is I won't be able to pick up my car until the end of June when I get back from overseas. :banghead:

So charlie if your listening...Take your time and if you want to test drive after a good tune. By all means break it in for me....Thanks

Well guys. A little progress the last week but ran into a big problem with my 8.8 I got off E-Bay. I had to have the whole differential rebuilt as the ring and pinion were shot. Cost me quite a bit but now I feel comfortable when  charlie gets it installed.

I did order JTR headers and still waiting for shipment of some transmission parts because charlie is anxious to get going. So he bead plasted a couple parts for me while he waits. [ Guests cannot view attachments ] [ Guests cannot view attachments ] [ Guests cannot view attachments ]
