          If you weren't moronic you would know the development history of the car you appreciate so much and would know the 924 was designed by Porsche on contract to VW's specification using VW's parts bin. By the time it was nearly ready for production, the project was canceled and Porsche took over on the final stage of design so they could use it to replace the aging 914. I was not making a comment on the SA22 RX-7's design origin.

            The GSL, which you are talking about, has a carbureted 12a.

            Regardless of that, the fuel injected 13b model also doesn't have a rev limiter. It's true that at about 15,000rpm the computer can't keep up, but the engine will have long since shaken itself to bits.

            It'll run out of fuel around 10,000 rpm regardless. But the factory seals are barely any good for 8,000 rpm, let alone anything more.

            I'd say nice save, but it wasn't nice and it wasn't a save.

            Thanks for giving me further proof that you know 0 about this car. You can apologize for being moronic now.

            Fren I've owned one for 11 years.
            I've seen the old motortrend etc videos of journalists shifting short of 7,000 rpm.
            A lot of the 0-60 times are overly slow because they needlessly shift into 3rd during the test. Granted it would only add about an extra 1.5 seconds to the time, but still.

            The 3rd gen mr2 actually DOES make 140hp unlike the 105hp 12a. Even then it's like 6.8 0-60.

            Yeah, 12 is slow these days, particularly if a big, heavy, unmodified road car like a ford can do it with no problem.
            Trying to make an anemic, wheezy old worn out used motor do it is really not a smart move.
            Just jump into something that is fast by today's standards.

            Delusional. A Mustang GT is fast by today's standards and runs 12s. A ZL1 runs mid-high 11s.
            So a bridgeported 13b running 12s, basically keeping up with a GT and ZL1, is definitely fast.

            Actually, trying to dismiss facts as "delusional" is the definition of deluded behavior.
            An off the shelf consumer ford is running 12's, yet you would have to modify an old car like the one you are referring to within an inch of its already spent life.
            A decrepit old consumer jap device is just not up to today's standards for speed, handling, looks, safety, efficiency, or any other metric you can quantify.
            These are facts.

            A built rotary and a ford rear end swap is not "within an inch of its life". How dramatic can you get lmao. You put any power to a 1st gen at all and you're going fast. Its 2024. You can build a rotary to reliably run 500hp. A 12 second rx7 can be built for under $10k. I don't see the purpose of this endless goalpost pushing

            Good luck buying a non-rusty car for under 5k, and then good luck buying a 13BT or REW with the money that's left.

            And then good luck getting a transmission and rear end with the $0 remaining, and then good luck getting the safety equipment required for the strip, etc etc etc.

            First of all, a clean shell costs like $2000. Building a 13b for 400hp will maybe cost $5k if you don't wanna cheap out and go race or bridgeport. You also act like a ford rear end and a w58 or s5 5 speed are somehow gonna cost thousands. And safety equipment for the strip for a 12 second car? Are you moronic? A helmet and extinguisher is basically all you need. Roll cages and shields and whatnot aren't required till you're into the 10s. Therefore an rx7 in the 12s is completely plausible for under 10k as long as you know where to look. But please, go on about needing a $10k engine to go 12 seconds in the quarter mile in a 2000lb car

            some of us are getting old and remember when a 16-flat quarter mile in a DD was a good car.
            i'm getting old and still think a 14.5 is a good, decently fast car

            regardless that 30 years ago a 16s vehicle would cost the same in then dollars as a 14.5 might cost in today dollars

            the market for quality used vehicles has basically doubled anon. Most people aren't talking about a "non rusty" Ohio car with 150k miles, which you couldn't sell anywhere close to the normal market prices in the southwest or cali areas.

            The 13b keg alone is $7k from Mazda. Unless you're suggesting people use 40yo used housings and irons for a "race motor".
            Also, you said 600hp before. Could it be that you're lowering the goalposts because I'm right? Funny how that works.

            >ford rear end and t2 trans don't cost thousands
            True, but even the $1000-1500 they will cost isn't insignificant when your budget is 10k.

            Also, we haven't gotten into wheels (~1k for a set), tires (~1k for a set) EMS (~1500 for a decent standalone) or any other repairs you'll need to make to the 40 year old rolling shell.

            nta but the "standard figures" for drivetrain loss that "everybody knows" have always been total horse shit
            Unless the car is a short wheelbase, solid axle, high tensile solid driveshaft, high strength stick shift you're not getting close to 15% loss figures. Much more common for real total drivetrain loss to be in the 22-18% range. RWD, FWD, doesn't matter. All those good old rules of thumb are horse shit for regular cars, they may fit for highly specialized track cars, but not grandma's buick and not a BMW and not a chally wally.

            If a car (the 1st gen US rx7s in particular) SAE Net'd 135hp in 1983 it was putting 110-112 to the ground on a good day.

          • 2 months ago

            Exactly this.

            Even assuming it IS exactly 15%, on a 105hp 12a you're still comfortably under 100whp at around 90 flat.

            Taking your 20% you come up with 84whp.

            Not that the 1st gen rx7 was a terrible horrible car back then, but it just goes to show how far we've come

            You're wrong and right. But it's the distributor. The thing doesn't physically contact enough at that RPM. Ignition mods are needed to burn fuel at such a small window when it's set moronic in order to deliver torque... which rotaries are notoriously shit out of luck for. There is no fuel cutoff AT ALL.

    Good cheap cars with lots of potential.
    Mechanically very reliable, other than the possibly 40 year old engine. Though a freshly built NA rotary will last forever with basic maintenance.
    They don't have the a large amount of aftermarket support, same deal as basically every jap car of the same era. So a lot of upgrades require retrofitting rather than being a straight bolt on. Everything has been done before though so nothing is impossible.
    But yeah very mechanically solid. Not much can go wrong with them (other than a 40 year old engine with 300k miles on it), and everything is easy to fix. And also easy to make go fast.
    Like 300,000 of these were sold in the states so spare parts are everywhere as well.

    You will want the gsl-se version, you can thank me later. Also look for bargains on ones with a "locked up motor", it's a common and very easy thing to fix on rotaries, unless it was caused by some one dropping a bolt down the intake instead of the usual carbon build up.

    Had one. Broke all the time but it didn’t brake all the time. Sold it for less than I paid, a couple months in. Idk the stats but the speed is peppy for simishit traffic. Like forty to seventy is quick. Yeah, sometimes the brakes mysteriously touched the floor and did nothing but a reapply usually did the trick.

    Anyone else hear anything about the brakes?

    Every time I've seen a B series in the area I've managed to see it smoking oil broken down near a highway off ramp a few weeks later.

    moral of the story:
    if you're going to keep the rotary in an 80s rx7, get the housing and rotors checked/machined by a builder and replace the apex seals
