Well first, I lost the turbos, so I dropped in a T04-E, which is running nice along with a Trust intercooler and some other fun parts.
Second, now I'm having some trouble with the clutch. I overhauled the slave cylinder, and the clutch still has a tendency to lose pressure the longer it's pressed. I hope it's not the master cylinder $$$.
I just came from an MR2 so it's not any smaller that's for sure. I do have a 7 point roll cage, so it's pretty much a 2 seater. I don't think Mazda had more than 2 people in mind when they built it anyway.
The handling is great, and you've got to love the torque of a rotary engine. Feels like that V-8 from back home...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Gorgeous to look at - even better to drive.

RX7s only come with a 1.3L.

Yes, but they have TWO of them. 1.3+1.3=2.6!

When they say you have a 2.0 engine do you say. Well I have 4 pistons. It must be a 8.0 liter. Come on now guys.
They are common sense. No rocket science.

The Third Gen RX7 is a Twin Turbo Rotary not Twin Rotary Twin Turbo, there is only one engine in any stock RX7 out there. A 2.6 litre rotary engine would be so inefficient on fuel that nobody would even want to own one. Not only that but the engine would be so large the front end of the car would need to be extended a full foot or more just to accommodate it.
