Don't listen to him... V8s don't belong in Rx7s..it wouldn't be an Rx7 anymore.



Is your '87 a turbo or non-turbo model?

yeah i can see the other side. any pos 87 rx7 is a much better car than a vette, its lighter, etc etc perfect place to put the v8.

I dont know how much help you are going to get on a V8 swap from a site called nopistons. If I were you I would look at rx7club.com because i think they have an entire section devoted to v8 swaps so they should be able to answer most of your questions.

put in a T2 drivetrain and call it a day. if you're in northern Jersey why don't you just PM, e-mail or call Ito. i'm sure he has to know of somewhere you can buy a motor and/or whatever else you need.
