I find it interesting actually, i hear its quite common to bung a LS type engine into these things. although front slightly heavy it must be a handful when u give it the beans!



the LS and ford 4.6l or 302 5.0 are awsome up grades for these cars.

rotary engines are interestig and all but if your goal is power why spend 5 to 8k suping up a older rotary only to maxx it out at 400 or so hp when u can take half that and drop in a V8 and make 400 to 500 hp on a stock engin with a slight tune or stage 1 turbo set up.

Man i Love rotarys but sadly it's takes alot to make it fast with very low torque what so ever and the fact of the matter is... the rotary isnt anything without a turbo (no a 3 rotor or 4 rotor) but anywho I love Rx-7's FD3S or FC3S and it's Light Godly light But like I said b4 no torque and i'm a Man who wants Torque.

A another reason is that i used to have a Rx-7 anywho FC3S the one (as u can see my pix) but i sold it Cuz One it Killed GAS So bad...(I still Love u FC3S) and to maintain a Rotary cost SO Much money i mean alot.. like the seals for the axel and the Rotary Seals they burn so fast and it cost's so much like about ....300 dollers every 4 months*without sparkplug's motor oil and coolint (if ur down to race like me) but daily about 6-7 months. U gotta Gut and clean the seals and replace the housing almost everytime u change the seals. BUT If time and Money Ur Baby CAN FLY LIke a M*Ther F&*^Ker~!!!!!!!!!!! hahaha Mines was About 250hp and ok torque. but in the touge It's godly *smile* I still love her

Now a Proud New Owner of a Nissan 240sx 1989 KA24DET greddy turbo 6 pis and a type S BOV *will post pix later in the future*


uhmm my friend actually took care of his 7 really well and he never really had any problems (until the rain flooded his car) so now all he has is eletrical problems and he drifts alot, ALOT

your only running 6 psi? on what greddy turbo? fuel management? anything else?

ehhh i dont think its the fact that they are lazy, they just want something more out of it rather than a older rotary giving up on you randomly but honestly id probably swap in a 3 rotor, but thats just me and a v8 into my 240 and supercharge it.... yummmmmmyyy

Best car there is! Would buy one right the way if I had the money. Also gas prizes are a bit high nowadays, so I'm waiting that big lottery win ^_^

You can have a 13b NA with 400hp.

Woot finally a topic about this babies. There's pros and cons on this car but I like them none the less. Yes they have low torque and requires a very dedicated owner to maintain this car. But the pay off is good. The weight distribution on this thing is almost near perfect about to 48-52 or around that range ratio and they take a good beating. Right now I currently owned a 88 t2. Hopefully I'll save up enough money to buy a fb and a fd also.

You can have a 13b NA with 400hp.


So what? You can make 400 on a 13b NA great. BUT, you are also consuming more gas than any other cars making that power. You do know that an NA built 13b with around that power range see's less than 9 miles a gallon. Now you can have your 400hp LSx motor and still be putting out over 20mpg.

From what I've been told, LS swapped RX7s balance is not much different from having a rotary unless you consider 30 lbs to be a significant difference.

actully the LS is a bit lighter then the ka24de and has better fuel economy....its amazing what can happen to engines in a 17 year span.


there is a company that makes a drop in kit for the LS for the s13. i forget the name tho. its in the nico240 forums.
