    Hi

    Recently bought a rx7 FD project then went to sell it got messed about now I'm keeping and putting a 1jz non vvt engine in it. I am about to buy the motor and loom but the car already has gearbox and diff.

    Is there an adapter plate to run the rx7 gearbox with a 1jz?

    Also if any one has done this conversion before I would love to have a chat and ask a couple of questions?

    thank you

    There is a fd on rx7club been around for years with a mazda box behind a 1j. Depends what your going to use it for to how long it will last. But rotors do smash them so id imagine a 1j will do it easier.
    Anyway Anythings possible just find a reputable shop to do it for you. Never seen an adapter kit.

    i recently read that thread where here welded the belhousing on to the rx box. he makes it sound like a great option .
