LS V8 6-Speed Swap: 1988 Mazda RX-7

 

The Mazda RX-7 is a fantastic car.  The chassis is capable, the steering communicative, the brakes are plenty powerful, and the wankel rotary engine is fun to revv…but is known for blowing up on occasion.  The right thing to do is to rebuild your wankel and run it for another 50k miles before the apex seals start to go…but, many owners chose to replace the dainty spinny thing with a big lumpy V8 from Detroit.  Find this 1988 Mazda RX-7 here on eBay offered for $13,000 buy-it-now located in Longmont, CO with 3 days to go.
