How tuneable is the RX7 engine, I've heard they are strong if tuned right, but must never be subjected to any detonation as it breaks the tips of the roters

Quite good Jason, there is a rotoray engine specailist up the road from us and head they can give u around 400bhp quite easily, also when u think they are quite light and RWD aswell it makes for good fun. Think only thing is their difficult to get great torque figures due to the engine, but i can't confirm that as i now nowt about the RX7.

I have a 7mb movie of an RX-7 (165ps) vs and R33 GTR (280ps) round a track. If anyone wants a copy, let me know.

Yeh, it was 9.62secs. World record for that class I believe.

I would if u lived closer Ben, lol Yeah always like the RX7 and it does seem like more of a pocket rocket than the skyline in standard form from what i've seen. (saying that having been in Dirks car with 4 ppl inc. Dirk i shocked by how quick a modded skyline really is:D )

Prices are about the same really aren't up until the stop of the RX7 being made. RX8 doesn't seem to have same look about it though.:(

Good nice to know as i thought the RX8 would take over from the RX7.

Well the missis works nr Warrington mate and goes that road a bit when traffic is good so good chance if he sees a met red r33 its our car:D

Well thats what i wanted to know, mind u shocked that a standard RX7 was quicker than a modded skyline but as he did say the skyline is like a fast lorry which i agree with.

Is the engine on the RX7 that bad or?
