hi, I've own the 1993 RX-7 Brilliant black with red interior since July of 2002. I daily drove this car, and it has let me down a few times; but overall the problems were just from being old or mistreatment from previous owners. I've done everything myself on the except rebuilding the engine, the most recent was upgrading the clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel. This is some of the major mods I have done on the car: M2 Stage 3 ECU, downpipe, custome high-flow cat, Racing Beat cat-back, mild streetport, K&N Intake with aluminum hard pipes and custome heatshield, Home Depot manual boost controller, Bilstein HD shocks w/ Tein S-Tech Springs, Air pump Eliminated with light weight pulleys, Petitt AST. 51r battery w/ turbojeff tray. Excedy Stage 1 Clutch Kit. Fidanza Flywheel. I have learn just about most of the stuff on the car, and I hope to do the same with my new BK.

I got chased allover a bunch of hills by a sweet red FD once (back in NZ) no way could my NA Impreza keep up once he overtook - he was spitting fire on the downchange. :lol:

One of my friends has one just like that, except he has a black interior. He's just done some simple things like a non-sequential conversion, turboback, and a few other things I don't remember. His is fast(ie stomped me on a highway pull in my impreza) so I'm guessing yours is even faster :shock:

I used to have turboback, but was too stinky. I still have seq. turbos, it's smoother transition. Non-seq could handle a bit more power, and you can eliminate alot of the vacuum line from the rats-nest. Never dyno it but it should have about 265 to 285 whp.
