    congrats! the turbo II looks good! with all the go fast stuff, any plans for the brake fluid and pads? fresh fluid and a good set of pads will do wonders for your confidence knowing that you can actually stop, lol!

    still running the top mount ic or has it been converted to a fmic?

    are you tuning it or do you have someone that will be doing it for you?

    you mentioned breaking in the engine. i'll assume that it has new apex seals in it then? stock size/material? 3mm ceramic?

    bug- early 80's celicas were rwd (pre supra days, called the "celica supra").

    thanks! i do a brake flush and bleed when the car is out of the shop. like you said, ill do that to make sure the car stops. the rotors and pads look pretty new, so i dont think ill do anything to them.

    well for right now, ill keep it top ic. someone else is going to tune the car for me but i hope he knows how to work with micro tech ltx-8 series. ill have the car have base map just to get it running. then when i have the money to get:
    *boost controller
    *bov
    *waste gate and ported
    *competion pulleys

    then ill get the front mount ic. then another tunning needs to be done to get the best of everything.

    all that being said, i wanna try to put in small things like stiffer mounts, such as diff, tranny, and motor mounts while the motor is out for the rebuild.


    OH! ALMOST FORGOT!
    well for my set up, i dont think the 3mm apex seals will work. keep in mind ill be driving this car almost like a daily driver, but ill try not to use it for short trips...

    Thanks for sending me the E-Mail. I totally missed this thread. Alot has been done to that car, I would be VERY careful with it for the time being.

    I'm guessing it has a blown engine? If so stick with the 3mm apex seals, those things will allow you to run much higher boost. It looks good, if you need any parts holla at me.

    Haha I feel sorry for you now bro. You have a modded, turbo RX7 in Cali. Your gonna have to pull out all the tricks to pass the dreaded sniffer.

    I'm never home. The best way to contact me is through E-Mail. 2800 for a modded Turbo2 is odd, I would guess there is something horribly wrong with it.

    what's the fuel system like? all stock still? if so, i think i'd upgrade that next. from what i know about the turbo 13b's, is that you need to be very careful about detonation...

    how about the cooling system? stock there too?

    When a rotary engine floods a lot. It's because of low compression, low compression means bad seals, bad seals mean the engine needs to be rebuilt. So you better start saving!! There are a few tricks you can use to keep it running for the time being, but that engine is on its way out.It's best to rebuild it now before it blows so you can reuse the rotors and irons.
