Apple Pie: 1988 Mazda RX-7

It is Pi-day today, time to enjoy a slice of apple pie, because what is more 'murican than a small block chevy shoved into a Japanese chassis?  The Mazda RX-7 is a regular recipient of domestic V8 power infusion -- certainly not because the Wankel is an inherently unreliable spinning piece of machinery, but potentially because the second generation RX-7 has a decent engine bay size and a chassis that can handle the torques and acceleration that comes with moooooooore displacement.  Find this 1988 Mazda RX7 offered for $6,500 in Mt Vernon, WA via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

  1. This looks like a pretty well executed swap. I have a buddy who has an FC basket case that he is starting to restore and possibly swap like this. Some hp and torque in one of these would be a lot of fun.

    Also Alice, get out of here with your spam posting, it's dumb.
