Here is the car i'm thinking of buying: Rx-7 TT
Thanks for the help,
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,
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.
