No factory turboII's in convertible. If you want one you'll have to make it happen, as far as the specifics, to make it simple to explain, remove body from turboII install convertible body.

every country but america had turbo verts



in fact america is the only country with non turbo 2nd gens









if you do want to do that .... proceedure is the same as NA > turboII swap



need engine and ecu at the LEAST, for best swap use the turbo tranny, driveshaft, and rear end and lsd.

errrrrrr...dunno how to respond to that





anyways.....assuming hes new to rx7s (which he said) i was adding in some information to what you said



you said NO turbo verts...i just clarified the topic



i dont think it was a matter of importation at all.....













anyways....you might wanna swap over the gauge cluster as well....and the boost pressure sensor would be necessary



if you DO this....i would suggest getting soemone who knows whats up with these cars to help or do it for you as theres quite a bit of work for someone with minimal know how on the car

a. there were no turbo II convertables in the US.

b. injectors were bigger different ecu/harness /beefier transmission/beefier driveline in general



on the NA they had 6 ports instead of 4 like the turbo model did so you cant just

swap over the manifolds and injectors, people have turbo'd na's but they have to be tuned better and getting a tII's drivetrain is almost a must. if you want a turbo convertable my suggestion would be to get a whole turbo II motor set and swap it over including the drivetrain..or if you can live without the convertiable top just buy a turbo II.

Go here...



www.rotaryengineillustrated.com & www.howstuffworks.com



It would be best to get a vert then do a TII swap
