I dont believe the car was ever a twin turbo in 88. They were called Turbo II's which might confuse people. OR, they made it into a twin blower car. Ill never know....heeheeheehee..

so either the guys a moron or the modifying type.....

See ya l8tr allig8tr,

What he said. ^^^

Turbo II's only had one turbo. '93 was the first year of the FD3S bodystyle here in the US and that was the first RX7 offered with twin turbos from Mazda - they were a sequential setup. A lot of people feel that replacing the TT setup on the FD3S is a more reliable way to make power, and also find it much easier to tune.

The guy who is selling that car could be one of those people who never really looked under the hood. I have seen RX7's for sale with inline-4's and V-6's before as well. I always find that to be very sad since RX = Rotary Experimental. Some people are just ignorant I guess.

K thanks i was looking on the net and couldn't find any info on a twin turbo factory car during this gen. I thought maybe i was going to be buying a special edition or something.
But with that many kilometers is this car that great of a deal?
Or should i wait till i get some money together and try to find a Gen3? They are extremely hard to find in Canada and when you do find one its the base model and they still want new price for them.
Thanks for the help guys,
Jeremy

U guys here are correct, that car is not a twin turbo, but rather a Turbo II. Mazda didn't offer a twin turbo until the 4th generation RX7 (1993+). The older ones like that still have great handling and cornering abilities tho. Lot of people replace the stock turbo setup with an HKS or similar one coz the factory system is low boost and not very efficient.

$6500 bones is a bit pricey, if you could get it for $5500, it'd be worth it.

^^ What he said plus you could always put a fresh 13 or 20b in it. I've always had a weak spot for the RX series.
Back in the mid 70's a friend of mine had the RX4...damn fast little car!

Better have a spare motor handy. They say those who haven't rebuilt their wankel haven't opened up the throttle much.

if you can get him to lower the price about 1-1.5k it would be a great deal.

Personally I have recently aquired a 1st gen with a bad 12a (or just a bad carb), but the engine is on its way out. I purchased a chevy 350 yesterday that is on its way into the enghine bay.

I would definatly try to talk the guy down
