Will this be a street driven car or something different?

Ohh F that.... rally all the way haha. Once you do it street vehicles are boring. Even though I was in korea for 5 weeks, i've still probably put less than 100 miles on my rx7 this summer. I need to fix some cosmetic issues on it this winter and sell it.

Haha - I would but I have a Race Car for the 24 Hours of Lemons.. and I am thinking of promoting myself to NASA.... 2 Race cars is going to be a tough sell (especially when one is Endurance Racing).. if I get bored with Endurance racing or I inadvertantly turn it into a ball of steel, I might move my timeline up.

So... Purple Power is some amazing stuff....




I have both the 1999 GT Harness and the 1994? GT-FOUR Harness in the basement and I am going to start to understand what the differences are.

Sorry for the long hiatus.... some updates

Using the old 3SGTE block from the fire - I installed the trans:





With the trans in place, I moved the mess back into the garage:



In a rare bit of clarvoyance, I saved the tunnel from my imported GT4 and I am going to use the OE mounts for the center drive shaft:

Word of advice, if you have to remove that crap again... use an angle grinder vs. a drill. The angle grinder wire wheels work in less than half the time.
