'91 Mazda RX7 FC3S turbo II - subtle mods
This is not a drift car, but someone may want it on here, im selling my FC this summer, I havn't been able to drive it that much as its not being used as it should be as well as the fact that I am building a drag kart and basically moving away from road going modded cars etc.
Here are the specs of it:
Milage: 89k miles
Spec: Standard UK spec turbo II
Compression: 7.2s on the front, 6.9s on the rear, even compression

OEM turbo II kit
OEM turbo II splitter
Eibo sleek rear spoiler (only 1 in the country)
Detangoed front indicators
Recovered red seats
E-manage ultimate - will have a safe base map on it (best to get it fully mapped for more power)
STACK Wideband O2
Apexi AVC-R boost controller
Front and rear strut braces
Upgraded grooved Black diamon disks all round
Goodrich braided lines (fronts fitted, rears to be fitted brand new)
3" custom bell mouth downpipe (only 1 in the world I think for an FC)
3" straigh through racing beat midbox
Y piece 3" to 2x2.5"
Custom stubby rear cans with rotary friendly ceramic wool (doesn't melt)

Braided fuel lines
KG billet secondary rail
Modded primary rail to take AN fittings
Parallel fuel setup
Tomei 280 lph fuel pump
RE-A filter (massive lol)
Currently running ORC 709 clutch - being swapped out for an Exedy stage 2 clutch
Vac rack removed
OEM S5 turbo
Upgraded to 360 degree thrust bearings
Fully decoked and rebalanced
Uprated HKS actuator
OEM FD rims (extra width, better grip but stock size)
20mm hubcentric spacer on the front (to allow rims to clear)
Cat 1 style - immobaliser, turbotimer, remote start, LCD colour fob, Code extry, proximity alarm etc
The car has had everything welded underneath, but front and rear sills have been welded by Mazda main dealer, it does have a few small dings and scratches but the car isn't new and this is to be expected, paintwork is good for the age though and there is no rust around the sunroof.
I am not looking for any part ex, just cash, I am looking for around £4.5k ono, a lot of car for not much money, very easy to simply bolt on a larger turbo to get some very good power, ive got all the supporting mods ready for big power, I am however selling the car before I have gone for big power.
The car ran a 14.2 at Santa pod a few years back when it was standard, with a slipping clutch and boost leak, the engine was around 210bhp at that point, its now probably closer to 300bhp (safe max on the OEM turbo)
I am looking to sell later in the summer, I need to swap out the clutch for an Exedy stage 2 to make it more streetable as it doesn't need a 700bhp ORC clutch anymore!
Here are some initial photos, I will get some more up later this week, but it won't be for sale until the clutch and base map are sorted and im happy that everything is in order. The photos below were taken at various stages of the build up, I will sort out some complete photos very soon.

I have interest in this already, further photos will be taken this weekend if the weather holds.
Update on my car, its basically all ready for sale now, I have swapped the clutch over to an Exedy stage 2 clutch - streetable but grips and given it a quick clean.
21 year old paint is pretty good!
I will take some more photos over the weekend once it stops raining, this would be the perfect car for someone who is looking for some good power and wants a car to last rather, everything is solid and has all the supporting mods on the car to take a lot more power.
Make me an offer if you are interested
I have just taken some more photos of the car, it now has a good usable base map - plently of headroom for further tuning (running safely rich at the moment) and the clutch has been swapped to an Exedy stage 2 so its now ready for sale - let me know if you want any further details on the car, its all been sorted and it solid, just needs a new owner! I am happy to take offers on the car, it would be a perfect base for anyone to do tuning to as all the important parts such as the fueling and cooling are uprated and can easily be tuned with the e-manage ultimate - it can even tune itself with the use of the wideband O2.
Here are the 2 bits that need a tiny amount of attention, firstly a bit on the rear drivers side, seems 100% solid and has been there since I have had it without any issues.
Also a tiny bit of rust around where the OEM spoiler would have sat - ie under the spoiler mounts, they just need cleaning and touching up - cosmetic only but I want to be 100% honest with any bits that need touching up.
What price do you have in mind?

Evening bump for my car, anyone going to make me an offer on it?
Wednesday bump anyone got any sensible offers for it?
The car is taxed until September and MOTed until 2013

1 week left on my car, its got a lot of watcher and quite a few page views!
Not long now left on the car, no bids at the moment so someone might get it cheap! Although there is a LOT of interest!
Just under 3 days to go on it - ends Sunday, can't see any other turbo II FCs for sale at the moment with these specs!
This ends tomorrow guys, there aren't many on the market and none are to this spec, ive spent the last few years getting all the top parts for this car, fuel system is well over a grand lol grab this whilst you can!
