A 1991-1992 twin turbo RX7, I think there was only 1200 made. A 2nd gen body.

Not that I know of. Maybe Mazda had a prototype that was twin turbo. I've seen twin turbo kits for FCs.

Well an AE is a 1988, so it couldn't be a 91 - 92. Also, as far as I know mazda did not build any production rx7s in 92, they just sold the 91s as a 92.

Most likely referring to twin scroll.



Of course during development of the FD, Mazda made some prototype mules with FD drivetrain and major suspension components in FC clothing. Purely for development, research and feedback.

Isn't the twin scroll only a S4 thing?
