ConclusionThere are two main manufacturers of V8 swap kits for 3rd generation RX7's. They is Hinson Supercars in Alabama and Granny's Speed shop in Washington. Although the Hinson kit is more affordable, I opted to go with the Granny's kit as he was local to me (saved on shipping) and because I prefer his transmission mount. When I met up with Grant, the owner of Granny's Speed Shop, he recognized me from my LT1 FC website and told me how much he enjoyed reading the story!Mazda designed the RX7 with a subframe to integrate the mounting of the engine, suspension and steering rack. Rather than re-using this subframe, a completely new subframe is used with mounts for the LS1, lowered steering rack, and stock mounting points for the suspension. Here you can see the subframe mounted in my car.
