Default What should I do with my 97% orignal 7

When I bought my 1980 RX7 it was in perfect shape the Rotary was already built, with a street port, and RB holley setup. Other then that it is bone stock.


The major issue I have is that the car is fully documented with the service history down to the order sheet. I have a 2" binder full. The 7 also has a very nice appraisal and I don't want to affect it's value.


I'm bored......


I have done all the things to the car to make it work and look better.


New door seals, poly bushings, rear hatch struts, and refinished wheels are just a few things that I have done.


It's a classy looking car, but I want to give it more of a performance look without modifying the bones of the car.


I love the look of wide wheels and fender flares, but I'm drilling into the body... I really don't want to do that.... but I do.


Any thought's to help get that performance look?

that could be a start. I was thinking about getting some Diamond Racing wheels as well. It's hard to find 4x110 wheels.

No offense but it aint original and to me, so long as you use parts that would have been used in "the day", go ahead and modify it. Do things that are "old school" and play.

You can always get more extreme with the porting.
