Wanted a cheap reliable replacement? Motor will last twice as long, get twice the mpg, cost 1/4 the price of a good condition 13b, roughly weigh the same fully dressed. Also to piss off rotary fanatics I would assume.
This is all riding on the chance this is not a Photoshop.
It's automatic (slowest RX7 ever!!!!), and he has another car equiped with a BP, i think it was a 240sx or so.
don't know why he is doin it, he likes the engine somehow.
Oh and btw @ mk2tmr: a 113hp RX7 SA (thats what they realy called outside northamerica, not FB ) is much faster than this, even if this woukd be a stick! the 12a is great when the cabs are maintained and tuned well. and the SAs just weigh about 2300lb, the FD with a bp is weighing atleast 2800lb.
