Since im running a fuel cell I will no longer need the large hump behind my seats. And since my fuel cell now occupies half my trunk space I figured I could regain some of that space. Ill get around to welding the new piece in permanently later on, for now im going to use the giant hole to allow better access to the diff while I make mounts for it.
Haven't touched this car in over a year. I switched chassis's and went back to messing with Rx7's. Was in the middle of an lsx swap on that car but I've decides to switch directions. It's either getting a stock f20c or j32a2 swapped. Still unsure which way I want to go.
Why did I ditch the s2000? Because I wasn't happy with my $10000 car and $20000 in parts.
Why did I stop my ls1 swap in the rx7 and want to switch to a motor with half the power and a third the torque? Because I miss the smooth shifts and fun I had with the stock s2000. And my last ls1 rx7 shifted like a truck and killed the tires in 4th gear. Was really hard to control the power while having fun around a corner.
I've realized keeping it simple can be the most fun. 2500 pounds with driver sounds like fun with 200whp from a stock f20c. I figure a stroker kit and some itb's will make the car a real blast to drive. Especially when using the smoothest 6 speed available and getting to hear the vtec hit.
