That's pretty much kinda what I'm shooting for after I'm done...99 J-Spec RX-7, except different sideskirts. That baby is SWWWEEET! Thanks for the link!

That paintjob is very, very, nice. That's some bucks right there. Where the heck do people get all their money from? :(

Actually...

Alot of people renovate older RX-7s that have been wrecked. My friend Jeff is just one example....he's rehabilitated over 20 FDs! :gap:

I like the very clean appearance...very nicely done. Also..with most 7'ss, you'll see is that not many people vary from the normal upgrade path. Alot of his components are the standard for what we choose for our 7s...such as the Fluidyne rad...the Power FC, the ACT clutch and the Tokicos...

Definetly a nice ride.... :thumbup:

Actually, Eugene...

For the RX-7...it depends totally on the application. For an everyday driver..used primarily for track events, an SMIC is much better, and prevents overheat due to the extreme heat generated by the rotary.

An FMIC will block the radiator, and prevent proper cooling...people running high amounts of boost on a continuous basis will have temperature problems.

Now on the other hand, if you're only jumping on the throttle on short runs such as drag racing, or daily cruises that you don't get on it much, an FMIC is acceptable.

A new application called the V-mount is being produced that allows the radiator and FMIC to both recieve the same amount of airflow...but it's gonna be pretty expensive.

An FMIC looks badazz..but in the 7's case..an SMIC is a better application.
