400 Horsepower RX-7 in Tokyo
Met up with a guy who has a 400 hp RX-7 when it's running at low Boost. To ensure the longevity of the engine he's running his T04 turbo at about 12psin (very low Boost). It has 2 apex seals on a bridge port motor. He gave a demo on the freeway and showed what it can do.

1993 Mazda RX-7 Twin Turbo Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1993 Mazda RX-7 Twin turbo with the optional Bose Acoustic Wave audio system. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

This car made me a car guy. When it works it is pretty near perfect and if you know what you are doing, it can run really well. Make sure you learn how to drive and this car will reward you like anything. Akin in its day to the exige now, it is awe inspiring and fun go-cart. Its styling is still amazing and I still have notes all the time on my car asking to sell it - even with faded paint. This car is about the spirit of driving for sure.
Cornering. Sweat on the back of my neck on the perfect apex with full on power-on over-steer. telegraphic handling If you know what you are doing 350+ reliable HP is easily within reach...
The build quality was not great. You have to take care to upgrade/replace key components. The finish was just not that of a super-car. If it were, the car would be near-perfect.
To completely sum up the TT Rx7: PURE sports car experience, a lot of TLC. It's rare to find a car this enjoyable, and if you take care of it it will take care of you. I bought mine a little over a year ago with a reman engine, and even though I've spent a ton on reliability parts and other repairs, nothing makes me smile more than hitting the gas in this car. If you got a little money, you're a real car guy and you don't mind learning a little about the car you drive, don't pass up the Rx7.
From the moment I saw the RX-7 I wanted it. It is truly one of the most beautiful designs to ever come out of Japan. I have owned this and the Nissan Twin turbo 300. While the 300 is overall a better "car", the RX-7 is really more of a true sports car. Good: Styling, smooth engine, looks very expensive, interior well laid- out. Not so good: If you are considering one, and are not planning on putting on an aftermarket turbo, etc., BUY A WARRANTY. I went through three orig equip turbos but luckily had a warranty. You can buy a warranty on this ride for under $2K, and you WILL be glad you did. Other bad: drinks premium fuel like a freshman fraternity pledge at a beer keg. You WILL replace radio.
Styling, performance, uniqueness, ability to increase performance to awesome levels if you want to spend the money.
Gas mileage, turbo reliability. While I am a pretty slim guy, if you are a little big around the middle or a re a big person in general you will find this car to be uncomfortable. Also, if you have the choice, get the base model with the cloth upholstery - it holds up a lot better than leather.
This car was the bomb. Great handleing, great performance, beautiful to look at. I found this beauty at a little local dealer and $9000 later drove off with the most powerful car I have ever owned. 215hp and suspension that allowed me to take it around corners over 60 like they weren't even there. Traded it for 99 Saab 93 SE convertable for my wife nine months later. Made $3000. Still kicking myself for that one....
The 3rd generation Mazda's RX7 rightfully won Motor Trend's Car of the year award when it was first released 10 years ago. Its combination of acceleration, handling and styling made it the best sports car to ever come from Japan and better than many cars that cost twice or even three times as much, including Porsche. This car is a true sports car not just a sporty car and it sacrifices many comforts for performance.
Rotary engine is light, compact and revs to the limit in a very smooth and predictable manner. Handling is phenomenal. Braking is excellent. Good leg room.
Devoid of any cargo space. Harsh ride. Consumes premium fuel at an alarming rate.
I bought this car because of its reputation. Since buying it, I've done numerous things to it to improve reliability and performance, and every minute has been a blast. This car still gets lots of looks, and can outperform many faaaaar more expensive cars.
big horsepower, RWD, huge community and availability of modifications/parts.
Needs a Boost gauge from the factory. Better quality factory parts...Intercooler, radiator, etc. Many parts are not sufficient for hard driving. Standard dual oil coolers. More exotic materials :)
Racing Beat Exhaust Note
Just got the Racing Beat Exhaust put on, and idle lowered.
