Garage List
LS1 Twin Turbo Rx7

My friend recently picked up his car from a guy who was developing headlights for the RX7. I went with him to pick up his car and I decided to snap some pictures and some video on my flip cam.








The person who build the hid kit, left the car out in the rain and basically a bunch of stuff rusted, so my friend is going to go through it all and clean up the engine bay

List of mods:
Precision 61mm P-trim turbos with T-3/5-bolt hot side
-3in downpipes merging into a single 3.5 downpipe
-Precision Intercooler
-Tial 42mm wastegates
-Tial 50mm bov
-4.10 Gear
-Built LS1 Block

9psi = 602whp

The FD RX-7 to me is one of the most timeless designs ever. I'd love to own one some day.

I love the FD, I love the LS1, I love twin turbos on an LS1 swap in an FD, but....

WTF is with the hole in the hood? The FD has such clean lines and a very striking visual appearance. That hole and the lights seem to throw it off big-time. Does your friend plan on cleaning it up a bit?

He put that hole there because it gets extremely hot, he just purchased a new hood. Long story his old feed hood, was on the car before and the hood latch broke and the hood was smashed, he did this for temp. till his vented hood comes in. And for the headlights, the guy who made it did not yet give him a finalized bracket that will fill the void in the headlight



His car went through more stages then the cars I have had

Setup before the LS1 swap
Full Street Port and I forget the rest - Built by Gotham Racing back in the day

Yeah but with the inherent lightness of the car itself, I'm sure it's still incredibly light.... Good Lord, 602whp in that thing.... Must be kinda like riding a rocket bareback.

Damn, that car would be fast enough with just the LS1 and 4.10s. TT is insane!


Oh, and worst vid ever. Unless you were showing off your buddy's smile.

Wow, LS1s are insane! And I agree, the FD3S has one of the most timeless JDM Sport coupe designs... beauty to look at!
