it is really nice car but seriously, don't pay $14000 though...
offer him like $10000(or even less)...it is good to save your money so that you can mod your car after...like front mounted intercooler.

I'm thinking I'll offer 9000 to start
if they say no... then I'll wait a bit and come back with 9500, if they say no again
I'll see for 10 000, but no higher

2 1/4 - 2 1/2 is fine, I might bump my exhaust up to 2 1/2 when I get the exhaust straightened (under axel) and put on a smaller tip. Will reducing the tip from 4.5 " to saaaay 3 make much of a difference? I want more Vrrrrrom and less fart can, although it doesn't compare to most of the awful fart cans in nanaimo I want some more flow with less noise. Also, I gotta start preparing for the street port of half bridge, opening the exhaut for that is going to make it notably louder than now so I gotta make some preparations. Unless someone knows where I can buy a mechanical dump for my exhaust...if I can find a decently priced one I'd put a fairly restrictive exhaust on then use the dump for "track days" also known as "every day the cops aren't around".

Well I found a few but none that are cheap.
They wat 420US$ for this one

This one would be nice, but impossible to control from inside the car. Which would make it difficult to return the car to a quite state if needed. 118US$


This is the cheapest dump I have found (179US$), however it is electrical, which is nice, but I woud think that a mechanical one would be cheaper...



Anyone know where I could find one?

Cobra buy that 88 instead..Its usually not a good idea to buy a modded car also..Usually means they drove it hard and with a rx7 lots of owners put on full exhaust and intake and dont even bother with fuel mods which means the engines are pretty much dead in most cases..

$10,000 ouch i paid $5,500 for mine..wait and look for a good price..it only took me 4 weeks to find mine

yeah thats good idea...
don't pay more than 10k...
you should say something like "I HAVE $9000 IN CASH RIGHT NOW!!!!"....so that he may consider selling immmediately.

this is my personal opinion though...

I read on a few site that say stock port run a free flow 2" for best results then add a .5" increase for porting or forced induction.So 2.25 or 2.5 would be best for it.I hear Borla XR-1's are really nice sounding mufflers for the 12a's mine had 2" straight off the manifold to 2-14" glasspacks on my 12a and it sounded awesome.Loud at high rpms but nice for around town driving.
