1988 Mazda RX7 Turbo Convertible 2.6 turbo from Australia and New Zealand
Supercar power, BUT cheap to run it's not!!
A few minor electrical glitches! Switches! Replaced and fine now!
I love my rotaries! I have two convertible 88 model turbos, and a 88 turbo coupe as well! They are all modified to different levels! The coupe has 40000ks on it with mild turbo port, Hiflo S5 turbo, HKS fcon etc! About 200hp!
The first convertible has 10000ks on a new motor /box/diff! It runs a Microtech computer, Walbro fuel pump, Garrett to3/o4 turbo, Tial wastegate, HKS BOV; Ford white 1600cc injectors, 3 1/2 inch ss single exhaust! Etc etc etc! It's good for 280hp to the wheels!
The last convertible is mild turbo port, Hiflo S5 Hitachi turbo, big Greddy Fmic, Microtech lt-10s with dashboard; 2 1/2 inch dual SS exhaust, and heaps more. Good for 210hp on a dyno last week!
As I said I love them! My fast convertible spins the wheels just from power to third gear easily! They are ridiculously expensive to run (fuel/oil), BUT SO SO worth it!!! My hardtop is being setup to hillclimb!! Fun fun fun!!! They all have widebody guards! One convertible has BN style kit! The others both have GP style bodykits! Mine have all been uber reliable!!! Love em! Did I say I love em LOL?
I'm lucky to be getting 250ks out of a tank of 98ron. Fuel at $90 to fill! The worked convertible I'd be lucky to get 180ks from the same size 65l tank! Silly eh? I have a lead foot though! Why would you own one otherwise? It would be a waste! Remember A REDLINE A DAY KEEPS THE CARBON AWAY!!! And HOW CAN YOU TAKE A PERFECT APEX WITHOUT AN APEX OR SIX OR TWELVE UNDER THE HOOD? LOL!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
