Rx7

I got this 1987 Turbo2 Rx7. It has about 160 thou miles on it. I bought it wrecked and rebuilt it. Its finally finished, even though several things remain on the fix-it-list.

In 1999, the car caught on FIRE and I finally got it back on the road. The reason it caught on fire was the dreaded screw in the Pulsation Damper. If anyone else has had a problem with the pulsation damper screw, please report it to the NHTSA (National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration). The more reports, the better the chance that we can get the word out about this faulty and very dangerous part.
To file a report/complaint: Go Here or call the DOT Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236) or 1-800-424-9393

Pulsation Damper Awareness: Look at the fire damage.

In October of 2000, the motor finally let go.  Currently I have the motor out and am preparing to rebuild.  All the apex seals are still there, maybe it was a side seal or walked bearing.  Found chunks of metal in the oil pan.  :-)

In April of 2002, I bought a Jspec GTX (89-91) motor and dropped it in.... still stock.
