DSM and RX kinda person
« on: January 22, 2020, 09:36:08 PM »
 :wave:

I haven't had much luck on other RX forums, in terms of finding a community that isn't either half dead, or was willing to help me out with finding or buying parts, so now I'm here.

Used to be huge into DSM/Mitsubishi guy, still am having owned a 4g63t swapped 88 Mighty Max and, a 91 Talon TSI, but the FC RX7 has been a dream car for me and 5 years ago I bought one.

I can't get away from DSM's though and I'm looking at doing a 4G63 swap here within the next year, budget and skills permitting.

Welcome to the forum.   It is fairly quiet around here, but there is still an active group of us.     There is a 4G63 swap car in the build threads area you should take a look at.

Welcome, although we are quiet, I have found the people active on this forum are some of the most knowledgeable on the net regarding any car related subject, not just swapped RX7's   The 4G63 I feel like is a forgotten motor these days, but are still impressive.

I'm certain this is one of the better car forums out there. It is a tad quite but still very helpful.

I was never a huge Mitsu/DSM guy until I worked in a performance shop that did a lot of dyno-tuning on them.  I became a believer when I saw the kind of power those 4g63 and 4b11's can make.  225hp per hole or better is crazy.  Just look at what they have done with the "Red Demon". 

Ive always fantasized about doing a full AWD swap into and FC or FD.  Welcome to the forum!  It's not the most active I've seen because swapped RX7s are sort of a niche market.  However most members are very knowledgeable with all things automotive and willing to help.  Plus there's not all the drama and childish BS found on some forums (for the most part).  Did you start a build thread yet?  I'd love to see what you have so far.

Welcome Leorrei,

I agree, there are some guys here with amazing skills, and some ingenious builds if you look around the site.
It's easily the most technically helpful forum I've seen.  8)
