yea i agree with Nashman, there is no way you will get 50hp out of that. Even with advancing the timing, also you will get a shitty ass idle along with even worse gas mileage. 20hp sounds about right. You gain 50hp on a Turbo but not on a n/a.

Also the rx8 is priced at just over $50,000, so yea im sure at that price the purchasers wont really be worrying about mpg

the RB full 3" back will net about 50 more hp.. and the true duals on the n/a will net about 30-35.. same with normal headers.. not too much of a diffrence going to true dual..

dont be stupid.. everyone knows that rotarys best friend is the exhaust..

From RB
The Turbo II High Performance Exhaust system incorporates a 3.15-inch (80mm) down pipe from the turbo outlet that mates to a presilencer section. From the head of the Y-pipe two 2.125-inch pipes extend to the ceramic wool-packed 409-stainless steel rear main mufflers. The bolt-on exhaust system increases horsepower approximately 32% - a 59 HP increase on a 1987 Turbo II RX-7!

And 28% on a n/a
This system is the culmination of considerable testing time here at Mazdatrix, using many different designs and pipe sizes. The result is by far the best HP from a bone-stock 86-92 13B non-turbo we have seen. We showed a 28% increase in rear wheel HP on a chassis dyno with this system. Torque is increased greatly from 2000 RPM on up, with the power peaking at 7000 RPM.



Enjoy

the RB system is not even 3" all the way back.. this causes more power loss and the restirction of the y-pipe adds some too.. if they went single muffler and got rid of the y-pipe obv then you might be looking at 65hp ish....

Racing the other night Half ways in a oil line burst and leaked.Didn't see it till it was too late. Time for a FC engine and better clamps.I own a rx rock for the next 6 months. I need to wait till spring for engine bay paint so I guess I'll leave the rock in it till I'm ready to swap in a bigger one.What a piss off.I just spent 3700 this year already with another 4000 more to go this winter. Should look and go good when ready(bring on the hondas)

well turbo s run off of load don't matter what rpm you are at

the avage car get full boost 2000 to 2500 over idle

this can change becasue of trim size exhuast wheel size/ic/ ic pipeing/and exhuast


but tell you the truth i don't liek rx7's power band to much like you being pushed and the turq jump i don't liek as well

i can go inot more detail but don't go by looks drive one

i was think on buying one but i liek the power band in supra lot more then a rex

case supr ahas better respons and smoother power


case rex have no turq and when the turbo kick in it so feels like fasle power


ask any qestion you whould liek i can most likly answer all of them

ps that is why i think ian got rid of this cars casue the power jump was dumb power could not use it have the tiem
Rx7's have torque.Just not as much as a 3L straight six which is hard to beat for torque because it's a straight 6.

I found out the culprit that killed it..............a loose clamp on the front oil line to the new cooler. A $1.50 part costed me a $1000 engine. OH well I found one up here for $1090 from a 85 SE with low miles. Need to pick it up in two weeks.Then flames away.
