my friend has an FD and just did a LS1 swap to it. Personally, i actually liked it.


I'd love to see a rx-7 with an LS7. It'd probably destroy most cars without major mods...

Also, does FD mean Frontwheel Drive? or something else...

The LS1 swap costs around $6k installed... an LS7 you might as well buy another RX7 lol.

FD is the shortened name used to refer to the '93-'95 US RX7's and the '93-99' JP RX7's.

Chassis name = FD3S. I've always said it for a long time because a lot of japanese cars are referred to by chassis codes. FD became played and whored out as a mass term due to Initial D.

Frontwheeldrive is FF. it means Front Engine Front wheel. FR is Front Engine Rear wheel, MR is mid-engine rear wheel, and etc.

6k? You're kidding right? Fuck, here you could get the engine for about 2k and then fitted into a 32 skyline for another 3k...and that's 5000AUD = 2000USD by our exchange rates. Wow... I know there is a skyline here that is a twin turbo LS1 and its fucking insane.

And yeah thanks for that. We usually use FWD or RWD, Australia doesn't use the FF style applications much unfortunately. If ya played GT2 on playstation you would know lol

Actually, look more into the work, its about 7 or 8k for the full install, but thats about 10k all up. But still after conversion to American market its less than 6000.

But an ls7 in any car would be expensive. There is an LS7 VZ GTO here and it makes about 700rwhp N/A.

Shit, i wish i could get the Versus or Modis. I got the Solus because of that roughly 50% promo deal you get if you're a member of their student tech program...until i found out this isn't really covered, lol... but i kept it anyway. (Bought their master tech tool set as well, and absolutely love it) I loved it when those guys came to my class, lol. They bashed Matco and Mac real good, lol. and they did it without doing any hearsay. I'm now saving up for their toolchests. I've already ripped up the old shelving in my garage to the appropriate dimensions so it'll sit flush with the wall lol.

I think you might still be able to get in. Just sign on to another class and have your teacher send a letter of confirmation or something to them when you file for it online. That's what i did, and i even have ASE certifications in B-segment (auto body) to send copies to them for so they know they didn't just give me a bunch of badass discounts for nothing.

I'm a collision repair mechanic and bodykit repair technician as a hobby, but as a full-time job i'm a neutrapseuticals analyst.

I went from muscle car aficionado to tuner in the early 00's when Import Tuner magazine featured a 450 wheel horsepower lexus IS300 automatic. seeing a car turn out 50hp more than my camaro that i owned at the time got me interested.
