Default Turbo charged

I have a mostly stock 88 rx7 10th Ann. Edition. The exhaust has been upgraded to a racing beat performance exhaust. With a 3.5inch downpipe. I want to put a new turbo on as mine has a slight crack on the exhaust side. Still runs fine just want something slightly bigger. Question is is there anything that uses the oil lines like the stock one and that will fit my downpipe. Thanks in advance any help is great

If you don't want to re-do the plumbing and buy a new manifold, a stock upgrade is the way to go. You can ship off your turbo and they will rebuild if necessary and upgrade the compressor. Majestic Turbo in Texas did mine many years ago and it's still going. BNR mentioned above can do it too.

Looking into doing a motor swap from my 2nd gen 13b to a 13b rew from a 93-95 rx7. Stock twin turbo. And I can get kits for it from there. That way I won't have to worry about strengthening the internals before I ramp up the boost. Does that sound like a good option?

That sounds like a very expensive option, yes it can be done but to want a simple upgrade then go to a rew is 2I diffrent animals, i would suggest the bnr hybrid or just a aftermarket turbo with a s5 manifold. Some of the older tuners in here can tell you and show you what your engine is capable in its current state.

If you seriously want a black rew, your looking at a engine, custom engine mounts, a standalone and a bunch of little odds and ends to tie everything together.

Ya I'm cool with all the odds an ends. I already have new mounts in it but I can change its not that expensive. I know full well what the stock motor is capable of. But the new motor I'm looking at has better internals than my stock motor. I love the way the car is now but I'm thinking I'll just go ahead and motor swap now cuz I wanna keep it a rotary and I'm worried that if I mod it too hard I'll wind up messing up an apex seal or something worse. I found an rew for 2k and it won't be that bad finding someone to swap the motor and everything for me.
