Question RX-7 Question...

Can someone tell me where I can find this info or answer it for me.

Can you put a 13b from the 3rd gen Rx7 into a 2nd Gen?

Unless I'm totally way off base, the 13B IS the engine from a second gen RX7. You'd be swapping one engine for another just like it. The 12A was the engine in the first gen.

Never owned one, but thought about a project for a long time, and even did the reading. If you're ready for clubsi-like fanboyism, check out teamfc3s.org and rx7.com. In the end, from all the reading I did, it seemed like too much trouble. Just finding an unabused example is so much work that by the time you finally found a good candidate for restoration, you could have found a ton of other cars, probably for less money. On the other hand, the near perfect weight distribution of the second gen RX7 would make a sweet auto-x car.

Theres a lot of useful information in those sites, mixed with the usual crap.

And this has been covered in this very forum more than once, do a search. n00b.

Simply? no.

It would be more cost effective to put the 3-rotor 20B engine into a second gen than it would to put the 3rd gen 13B.

Different engine mount locations, I guess, are the big kicker. But pretty much everything has to be replaced.

From what I've read

for a 2nd gen.

to put in a 20B ~ $10k

to put in a TT13B ~ $20k

Word, fo'snizzle, and all that stuff...

Bah screw the 13B! Put a 20B Cosmo motor in it. Yum, three rotors! It is rumored that Mazda originally made the engine bay of the 2nd gen extra long in plans of possibly comming out with a three rotor version.
