Man, nice looking RX-7 thumbsup image.

I always loved the first generation RX-7; I remember when they first hit the showrooms and there were waiting lists to get them.

1985 Mazda RX-7 GT-X Turbo (Hotrocket85)

Photo of a 1985 Mazda RX-7 GT-X Turbo (Hotrocket85)


1985 S model Rx-7 has been through a bit of a transformation. The original 12a blew a apex seal at the dyno (108 hp)and that was after the Dupont paint and 15 x 7 Panasport wheels w/ P205/50/15 BFGoodrich. So I bought one of the Japanese import 12a Turbo's off Ebay. It's controlled by a Mega Squirt stand alone computer. Thanks to Kenny H. for the tuning and patients. Progress page on Mazspeed site.


12at street ported with updated turbo.
