1100HP Twin Turbo FC RX7 Gets Rowdy

If you want to have a specific car that doesn’t have much kick under the hood or happen to have access to a car for a low price, engine swapping can be your best friend. In this particular situation, we check out quite the common swap as a Mazda RX-7 receives a little bit of help from a trusty v8 and a pair of turbos that really bring this thing to life.

With factory power, the RX-7 has certainly developed a cult following that might try to fight you if they find out about your intentions with a v8 and their beloved machines. However, when it comes to the owners of the cars, they’re about equally divided in their praise or hatred of the rotaries. I think that most of the people who do find themselves loving the engines manage to find a love-hate relationship because of their lack of reliability. This is why you don’t see rotary power under the hood of anything on the market today.

This time, we check out one of the more popular swaps in an incredibly clean example of an RX-7 as it shows up to the Donut Garage to hang out for an episode of Daily Transmission. It just so happens that this machine is so clean that you could eat off of it as it uses that LS power and a pair of turbos to crank out an astonishing 1100 hp.

Check out the video below as we get the grand tour of what makes this car so special before witnessing it completely blowing the tires off with a comfortable ease to the whole thing. After you go on the tour of this eight-cylinder monster in a lightweight chassis that’s bound to be a blast, be sure to tell us what you think of the combination on this episode of Daily Transmission.
