k, a few months ago, i sent my rex int a ditch off a dirt road at 80. then, i sold it to my bro for 2 Bronco II's. about a month opr do\so ago, he told me i pretty much completely fucked it up wen i sent it into the ditch... pushed back the whole sub-frame, busted the radiator (put the one from my 88 'lude in it... couldnt latch the hood right. then when we were goin down the highway at about 75, the hood came up and cracked the windhield and bent...

anyways, should i keep the 2 broncos, or try and trade em to my dad for his Mazda RX-7 with a blown engine...?

btw, all the engine needs is a seal or sumthin, and the trannies in both broncos are dead or almost deaad, but my bro would rebuild one for me...

and sry for the long post pplz lol

owning a rx-7 gets expensive. For some reason no one works on these cars in their garage it seems and mechnics want a ton of money to fix anything (provided you find one that knows how to work on them).
yea, i know, but that wont be much of a problem, considerin my brother is gonna be a certified mechanic in about a year and hes done a lotta research on rx-7s

If you have someone around who really knows his shit about the RX-7, go for it...

the FC3S has 225 stock (turbo II) and the FD came with 245 up to 265 stock... 99-01 FD even has 280...

but mind you: gas usage is the same, or worse, than a v6 engine... don't let the 1.3ltr engine fool you, it's a beast...

but the engine is SO far off from what you would normally know about engine-mechanics, that you either have to be an extreme enthousiast, or have a very capable mechanic around...

a friend of mine just bought himself an FD and the only reason he took the risk (he sold a CRX VT for it ;) ), is that we have a shop around here that does nothing but RX-7...

and yes... I've been thinking of getting me one... FC3S... but can't afford it right now :(

into a ditch off a dirt road at 80? why were you going 80 down a dirt road in a crx?
:lol2: i was having fun, and ive done it lotsa times before, but i was being stupid. i completely forgot i had bald tires... and by the time i hit the ditch, i wasn't actually going 80, it was more like 50 or so... but yea, it was pretty funny... my friend went flying into me and my cd player skipped for like half a minute... lol
but yea... and u must've heard those songs that just... make u wanna haul ass :lol:

and im not completely sure about everything about it, but its not turbo, it was my dads so i know about the mileage and everything, and ive done enough research on rotary engines to know how they work and everything...

and id probly put the engine from the turbo II in it, instead of rebuilding the one in there... but the body is in pretty good condition, regualar sunfade of a car that hasnt been driven for a few years, interiors ok, jus hasta be cleaned, and i think sum kid jumped on the sunroof or sumthing... id hafta fix that...

and like i said, my brother pretty much knows his shit about RX-7s so yea....

d00d a tII swap is not just like swapping a d-series for a b-series.....rx-7 electrical systems are majorly stressed as it is....be careful
