Is that car all original? The list of mods would make it seem so.

Looks good, I like old school.

I would say not all original, due to the fact he stated it had a 13b from an 83. I like the car makes me want to do an old school RX.

Excuse the above meant to write 12a, brain stopped functioning as I was typing!

12A from 1983 - no 13Bs in FBs back then. Its not all original with the RX7 engine and the RX4 brake cylinder, etc.

Woops was typing fast, I meant 12a. Thanks WE3, good catch.

Sorry, I meant the body (all original), not the mechanicals. I should have said as much.

Obviously the mod list indicated that the mechanicals had been changed.

If the body survived that long without work, that is impressive.

I've seen this car in person. Looks all stock from the outside. A very nice
survivor.

Jeremy, my wifes' comment when she saw it at Crits was "It's cute!" :smilielol5:

I can put my wifes car in the "car of the month". I will have to get an interior picture and engine bay pic later. Here is the outside picture...

94 MB FD

extend port engine with all OE parts (ported by myself,assembled by Stephen White with some assistance ;).)

BNR Stage 3 sequential twin turbocharger upgrades

Full 3" exhaust with Magnaflow muffled mid pipe and RB dual tip muffler

Custom SMIC upgrade with custom air duct extension

Custom intercooler piping with Greddy elbow

Type S BOV

Power FC w/ Commander

850 primary injectors/1200CC secondary injectors

Supra Nippondenso pump

Car made 329 RWHP at 14 psi on stock twins and stock engine with stock fuel system a couple years ago. On crappy tires and stock slipping clutch it went a 13.0 with a 2.2 60 ft at 114 mph. Redynoing at the end of this month. Goal with the car is 375 RWHP sequential at 15-16 psi on pump fuel.

I found that RX2! It was in a junk yard in Pell City AL. When I saw it, it looked perfect!

It may take some time for this section of the forum to become popular again...

Bryan, your pictures didn't come through.

FD vs RX2 is an interesting competition...

Throw your FC in there and I'll try to wrangle up an FB.

I would have to clean a lot of snow off the '91 to get a picture (although it is probably better looking with the faded paint covered by snow).

The '86 is lying in pieces in the garage (and was not a show car before the hail damage).

No beauty pagents for my FCs :)

There have to be some FBs and FCs out there somewhere though (normal ones, not crazy ones like yours TTT :) ).

Heck, I can post some pics of my FC... but it's slow.... :biggthumpup:

Slow is cool. You are talking to a guy with an AUTOMATIC RX7 (I know what slow is).

We need to get involvement up in this thread.

Get 3 pictures and get involved!

TitaniumTT

And you're talking to the guy who has spent the last 13 months pushing his FD from one spot to another.... and the last 7 months pushing his 'vert from one spot to another..... ;)

But I agree, more people need to be involved in these rotaries of the month

12A from 1983 - no 13Bs in FBs back then.
when u say back then, u mean 83 right? cause they did put 13bs in the fb, in the 84-85 gsl-se.
