theorie's 1993 Mazda Rx-7
February 2013: The new 20B (3-Rotor) has been torn down to the longblock and is awaiting motor mounts, which will be fabricated by Advanced Race Technology. Fender wells and part of the under body have been cleaned and coated with truck bed liner. Interior sound deadening mat has been removed and the interior is being prepped for spray-on sound deadening. Subframes and rear differential have been cleaned and repainted. PowerFlex bushings provided by J-Auto.net are in transit and will be installed into cleaned & powdercoated suspension components.
Thanks for checking out my CarDomain page. This is my second FD3S (3rd Generation Rx-7) and it's an ongoing project. I currently live in Sarasota, FL and the car is being rebuilt from the ground-up for street / time attack with a single-turbo 20B (3-Rotor) motor.
Specs when I bought the car in April 2007: + 29,xxx original miles (original motor) + Sequential twin-turbo configuration (original turbos) + 5-speed manual transmission + Silver exterior + Red leather interior
