Okay, several of the pics are WAY TOO BIG to put up on here so I will just post a couple that won't hog up too much space and just put in the URLs for the rest.

Here are a couple of pics of my '88 RX-7 GXL:

Here are the urls for the remaining pics:

Here is a shot of what is under the hood.  Pretty clean for an '88.  The guy who sold it to me threw in the filtercharger for free so I just put it on so I wouldn't have to be dealing with shitty paper air filters.  I also had some problems with my soundsystem frying my alternators, so I had my mechanic custom fit a chevy truck alternator onto the car.  Also have a gel pack battery which goes well with the soundsystem.

Here is a shot of my clarion deck:

Here is a shot of the Precision Power amp mounted behind the seat:

Here is a shot of the custom built subwoofer box for my 2 JL Audio 10" W0 subs:

Back to the car itself, here are a couple of pics of the failing paint job

Not the flashiest car or the greatest soundsystem but it will do until I get my Z-28 within the next month or two.

Is it pretty quick compared to its turbo brother? Well compared to other cars actually. I was actually looking at buying one for a thousand dolalrs it just didnt run. Had 13k original miles, 1986 RX7, perfect interior and exterior no paint fade or anything, no scrapes or nothing. The owner died and it was left in his garage for years and finally his son sold it to a dealership becuase it dint run but the problem was bad fuel. I could smell it when he tried to start it. Possibly the fuel pump and def the fuel filter needed cleaned, the whole system flushed, but Im confident it would have been a great car with a little bit of work.

               Hard to rate the power on these suckers.  It definitely isn't the turbo II model, and it is a FAR CRY from the twin-turbo powered beast that the 3rd gen is.  The non-turbo is gutless in the low RPM range but becomes very hard to compete with in the high RPM range.  RX-7s can be made into amazing performance machines but they will also be the biggest gas guzzlers on the planet.  IMHO if the car is dead (no engine) I would go for the 350 V-8 conversion.  Rotary engines are such high maintenence (and are even more so once you turbo them) that you would be better off with ditching it.  You would get a couple of miles better gas mileage, more HP and still have decent handling.  The fuel smell is usually due to failing seals around the fuel line and they are downright dangerous, as it's very easy for the engine to catch fire.  RX-7s have VERY HIGH PRESSURE fuel systems.  Mine was doing the same thing (bad smell) when I took it in and got it fixed.

               I wouldnt build a rotary, I would do a V8 setup. Ive heard that if you dont run them into the ground, 3 rotor engine's will last a long time with little maintnance, but that might have been just fanboyism bs the the people on the forum were feeding me. I think they are sexy cars. but if I was going to get one and plan on doing a swap anyway why not get a dodge daytona? My step dad had one and it was pretty quick I guess, last time I rode in it before he sold it I was 13 and I didnt really care about cars then. Are they 6 cyl or 8 cyl engines?

Front Windsheild
Paint
New plugs/wires/distributor
my X3 slimbox under the dash above passengers legs
10inch lcd in dash

It has a 305 in it right now but this winter my dad and I are rebuilding a 350 to put it in once spring gets here.

Daytonas?  I think they are actually turbo 4 banger if they are the top of the line models.  I could be mistaken though.  I seem to recall a 2.5L turbocharged 4-banger.  They are pretty quick but IMHO there are better options for the $.  The 3 rotor engines are HP beasts but VERY RARE and expensive as hell to convert into a 2nd gen.  It would probably run you about $10-$15K and that is if you did all of the work yourself.  You can buy a rebuilt 350 for about $1600 and replace the tranny for about $2K or less.  Even if you didn't do the work yourself it wouldn't cost you more than $6-$7K.  It seems like alot but not bad if you are getting the RX-7 itself for $1K or less.
