The swap was meticulously performed by Tick Performance in Mount Airy, NC (http://tick- Further work has been done by Transmission Physicians of Tampa, FL. The car has only been to the 1/4 mile one time, and with a very soft launch it ran a 12.08 @ 118.9 mph in 80 degree Florida heat. This was before the car was tuned and prior to further modifications. I have no doubt this car will do low to mid 11s on the motor, and because it is forged, it is only a nitrous system away from running deep 10s (if not lower). The car is a Turbo II model which was the performance model of the 86-91 Rx-7s. It came with an 8" clutch-type LSD that is actually quite strong from the factory. There is at least one V8-powered Rx-7 using this stock differential that is running in the 9s and many, many more running in the 10s and 11s. This car does not have AC or power steering. If you've never driven a car without power steering, you honestly won't miss it unless you're trying to turn the wheels when you're dead stopped in a parking lot. Otherwise, the steering response is much better.

Please PM me for furter information. I'll provide VIN for the background check via PM.

I'll have to be honest and say I've never liked this year/model of the RX.....but your car is extremely HOTT! That is one clean looking RX7 - I would pimp that ride. Good luck on the sale.
