My Ride: 1993 Silver FD3S
FS: Silver 1993 RX-7 Base w/ Black Interior

Meticulously maintained, all paperwork. The car is in above average condition and in 100% working order (including drivers door pocket). It has some minor door dings and the paint has standard chips, overall I would rate the exterior 8/10. The interior has some minor wear on the driver’s bolster, very little wear on the passenger’s seat. The seats each still give off a nice “shine”. Carpet and the remainder of the interior are immaculate, only wear being wear the drivers elbow rests during shifting. I would rate the interior 8/10.

I purchased the car when I was single last November. I have not had a single problem. Since then, I have become engaged and have a dog. I will be purchasing a new home and regrettably can’t afford to have the FD on my list of toys. Same ole story you’ve heard so many times, my loss is your gain. Here’s a list of the goodies:

A reman engine w/ less than 9,000 miles, Stage II street port, built by Steve Kan of Gotham Racing.
Apexi Power FC w/ Commander
rebuilt stock twin turbos
Racing Beat 12.5 lb flywheel
ACT street/strip clutch
Supra Fuel Pump
4*850 cc injectors
New cooling hoses and silicone vacuum lines
Pettit Cold Air intake
Gotham Racing SS Downpipe
SR Resonated Midpipe
Racing Beat Dual Tip Catback
Pettit Aluminum AST
Pettit Cool Charge II Intercooler
Gotham Racing underdrive water and alternator pulleys
Koyo Radiator
Aquamist 2d Water Injection System
B&M Short Throw Shifter
Racing Beat Front/Rear Sway Bars
Koni Adjustable Yellows
Eibach Springs
Cusco Front Strut bar
Efini Y-pipe
Power Slot Rotors
Hawk HP+ Pads
SS clutch line
SS Brake Lines
AT Italia Riva 17’ wheels
Bridgestone S-03’s w/ >85% tread. 265 rear, 245 front
99 taillight conversion
99 Front Lip
Efini Badges
NR White faced Gauges
Single A-pillar pod with Greddy 60mm white Faced Peak/Hold Boost gauge
Dual Center Speaker Pod with Greddy 60mm white faced Peak/Hold Fuel Pressure and EGT Gauges
Relocated Fuel Filter
OEM SS Door Sills
momo shift knob

I have only used Amsoil 20w50 Synthetic Motor Oil, changed every 1500 miles since break in. Transmission and Differential are redline synthetic fluids. Currently using Wilwood synthetic brake
fluid, change 3,000 miles ago. Motor mounts and rear bushings have been replaced with the new engine. Car has always been properly warmed up and cooled and is in covered parking both during work hours and overnight.

This car starts on the FIRST time ALWAYS, hot or cold. It sill holds ~ -400 vacuum on the PFC and idles rock solid. The sequential turbos transition fine, and run a solid 13.5 lbs of boost through redline. On the dyno I put down about 323 rwhp, tuned at 10.5 to 1 A/F ratio. This was with 2 boost leaks, 1 at the IC and 1 at the elbow where the throttle body o-ring had worn. Each of these is fixed and it is estimated this car puts down 330 rwhp.

I am asking $17,500.

Email matthew.alston@mci.com with Inquiries or for Pictures. Also, can someone help me post a pic or 2 here?

Thanks!

I'll send you pics now. Thank you! The older synthetic oils didn't burn clean and produced buildup with the rotory's oil metering pump.

Now, synthetics are such high grade they actually hold up to the rotories high temps very well. My understanding is the motor doesn't care if it's dino or synthetic, but the turbos like it better.

Their is a big debate in the RX community on which is better, similar to the FMIC or SMIC debate. The only consensus is, change the fluid often. I went with synthetic as my engine builder recommended it.

A little hostile. I think it's due to a lot of "kids" that come in regarding rwhp this, rwhp that, and what do I need to make this car have 400 rwhp type questions.

It's still a great resource for troubleshooting or modifying for specific applications.

Bump, bump bump

yeah, it seemed like there were alot of kids getting into these car's and alot of older members weren't too thrilled about it, mainly cause it seemed the kids were bragging about it........

so what you planning on getting after you sell this?

making me miss mine ......

I totalled it with only 500 miles on the brand new crate engine !!! Even though I got the M3 now, the RX7 was the best bang for the buck than any car I've had (6 and counting). Gotta love the smooth power of the rotary . This is a great deal with everything that has been done to it.

All new Silicon Vacuum hoses (zip tied). The turbos are still sequential. OEM 2mm Apex seals, it's all in the tuning. BEAUTIFUL Street Port with a slight overlap. You can hear the intake and exhaust ports being open at the same time, sounds like a small block cammed out V8. The car is extremely fast all the way around, however, it SCREAMS above 5500 RPMS (all the way to 8400).

You all are making me not want to sell it! It's going on Autotrader and Ebay this weekend. If anyone is in the ATL, feel free to shoot me an email and you can check it out.

Thats right .. its all about tuning it just perfect! I had bought mine with 22K on it, It was thrashed , from exterior to interior, i did alot to fix her up. I even had a spot in "readers rides" from superstreet mag. ( i gotta dig out my copy) . I had the Super Drager exhaust, at low rpm it was tame in sound, a big stomp and a few 1K rpm's later and , the most horrific sound of massive power would scare the shiet out of people riding next to me.Dang i miss it now! I had HKS Super p-flows, HKS Super Drager, EVC, and a few mods here and there , and i blew the doors off of many cars.THe car is so dang light , with a few mods and correct tuning you have one beast of a machine!( twin sequeintial turbos ahhhh miss them from my RX and Supra TT!
