Needs more LS1, then you'd have some torque :whistle:

Seriously though, nice looking car. I like the choice of wheels and the color. Goes good with the car.

i've gotten it up to 10,000 rpm, but that was a one time deal and an accident...mainly it'll go up to around 8500 for shifts on the track, on the street... just to play around 6500 and for fuel economy i'll go up to around 4500.... the 10,000 rpm i find myself very VERY lucky for it not exploding right there.... still got the win though!

LS1 would be badass but it's the only known 20B TT in a FC body style RX7... the turbos actually are stacked and staggered so they'd fit

Did you do the motor yourself or did you buy it that way?

I bet, looks like a nice custom setup.

I was just messing about the LS1. Although there was a local guy up here who had a LS1 in one and it did pretty well with the rest of us.

Hinson Supercars, one of the companies that does LS conversions for RX7s is located right outside of Huntsville. I would love to have one of their setups.
