Default My '88 TII build/resto

Well just this weekend I picked up my very first turbocharged rotary. I got extremely lucky and snagged this 1988 Turbo II for a pretty good deal. It's all original, completely stock with 55,000 original kilometers. (yes it's a true Canadian car.) My plans for it will basically consist of fixing a few little odds and ends on the car, and then do simple mods to improve handling, braking, and get a bit more power. I'm shooting for around 250rwhp. I'll be running a rtek 2.1 ecu, S5 turbo with ported wastegate, exhaust (probably the Racing Beat RevTII system), home made intake, GSL-SE injectors in the secondaries, walbro pump, and a few other odds and ends. Anyway time for some pictures. These were taken the day after I brought it home.

I'm thinking about it. Nice dirty 3" single setup would rock it nice for a while untill I can find/afford the racing beat system. I should get you to tig a nice trumpet on the outlet of my BOV as well.

Thanks. I'm hoping to have this car on the road next weekend. I have to put some new brakes on it and figure out what I'm going to do for tires. Apparently my 17" Sumitomos that I ordered to fit my Fast FC01 rims won't be in for another month or better. Might have to take the old ARE's off of my other FC and rock them for a while.

Little update: Put the new brakes on last night. I don't think the brakes have ever been touched on this car. The white paint marks were still on the rotors and the phillips screws that hold the rotors to the hubs. The rotors also came off of the front hubs with just a few taps of a dead blow. (May not seem like a big deal but here in Canada those alluminum hubs are notorious for being a royal bastard to get the steel rotors off of.) I also found a set of 215/50R17 Bridgestone Potenza take offs here at work so I threw them on my Fast wheels and mounted them up. Those tires will do temporarilly untill my other ones arrive.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to detail the car up tomorrow before the guy comes to appraise it. I'll be sure to snap some pics then.

Man, even the zinc coating on the underhood parts is mostly intact.

Oh ya, the car is crazy clean. I don't know what they did to preserve this car the way it is, but I'm glad they did it. The car is spotless underneath. It still has all the factory paint marks everywhere from the assembly line and it even has the little tag on the diff plug saying it requires special LSD fluid!

Here's some more pictures as requested. This is with the new wheels and a wash/wax. Cleaned up pretty nice! There's also a group photo of all of my rotaries lined up on the front yard. Rx-4, GXL, and the TII.

Not much to update on this as of right now. I've been driving the car for over a month and have put on about 2000kms. The car has been running flawless other than a bit of tire rubbing on the front fenders. Rolling the front fenders is on the list of things to do in the spring. I plan on driving it for another week or two and then it will get put away for the winter. Stay tuned in the spring for some real modification though......
