I think by now from all the responses he's got from the forums, he's starting to realize his mistake. But live and learn I guess
Just don't make the same mistake next time.

considering 4 salvage titles, 1 total theft record, 1 rebuilt title, the car didn't worth that much anyways I guess...

look these are the facts.. the car looked good.. only a few little things.. the alarm needed to be re-wired and new hood otherwise good.. the body was straight and good.. and if it has a straight frame then your good to go.. there is no reason why the car wouldnt be sold more than what it was... who cares if it was broken into awhile back.. or was wrecked.. like said before if it was fixed properly then its ok.. its like buying someone else fully restored classic car from like the Barret Jackson auction.. if its done prefect you will get the money.. i guess it was not ment to be then anyways what are you thinking about buying?

Guys in Progressive said they can install 20B engine for approx $5,000. 20B costs approx $5,000 or so.
So labour+engine=should be $15,000 maximum.
3rd gen RX-7 costs approx $20,000
so $20,000+$15,000=$35,000

You can have 3rd gen RX-7 20B for approx $35,000.
Toyota Supra costs approx $40,000 to $45,000...

So 3rd gen RX-7 20B is approx $5,000 to $10,000 cheaper than Toyota Supra...

I think 20B RX-7 is pretty good deal...because I am pretty sure they can smoke NSX or Supra.

There are not many cars on the road that will be able to compete against a turboed 20B. But in any case, I don't know where you got those figures from, but they're way way way off!! If you talk to any REPUTABLE rotary race shop, you won't get such ridiculous numbers. There's alot more to making a 3 rotor work than just dropping in the engine.

Look at Peter Farrell, Pettit Racing, MVA, Staff's and other serious rotary shops that have made 500-800hp+ 20Bs. There is a reason why they are so rare....you could probably count all the ones in North America in your head. If it only did cost $15K to do the mod, everyone would be driving around in a 20B! The costs I've seen for these 20B conversions typically range between $40,000-$60,000 (not inlcuding the car)! A BIG difference from $15K, so there's definitely something up with that.

Apples and oranges, just like the difference between a guy who buys a cheap car and only spends money on cheap mods, and the guy who actually pays the money to buy a good car, and also pays the money to get good mods.

I was actually talking to troy at progressive about this a couple weeks ago. First off the conversion itself with the engine will be well over $20,000. When i was living in Miami Pettit Racing charges approx. $27000 (US of course) for the conversion. Plus you still need all of the parts to support such a beast in the RX. With the intercooler, custom turbo setup, computer, new engine cradle, moving back the firewall, you will NOT have a 20B in an RX-7 for less than 50 thousand,,,,,minimum.

oh really. when i asked him the price of installation, he told me 100hours x $50 labour. Well...that was like 4 or 5 month ago.
Tetsuro from Auto Project TA(PK Motorsports) told me that he can install it in 30 hours x $65 labour.

$20-$30k if you want it done right with no hack and cut jobs.300hp and 297 lbs ft of torque must be nice tho.

Close.I know a guy in the states with a 20B T2.IT's around 6g's for the engine,2g's for haltech(Need the E11),$600-$1000 for twin oil coolers(needed),1g for twin high output fans,1g for IC and IC piping,around $500 for the 6 coils needed for direct fire.then the custom mounts and if you have a NA then you need a T2,flywheel,counterwieght and clutch that will hold the 300hp and 297lbs ft. of torque that beast puts out stock.In other words.....A SHITLOAD of $$$.

All this talk about 20b rotary, what the hell??? Are any one of you going to step up, all of you think you know the cost but have you ever done one! I didn't think so. PROGRESSIVE is a true rotary performance shop. I take my 3rd gen RX there all the time with complete confidence, and apparently so do other people. If you want a straight answer and want to deal with someone who knows what the hell they are talking about as oppossed to someone talking out their ass… PROGRESSIVE is the place to go. Go see for your self. I rest my case…. Care to differ????
P.S. no matter what the cost, you would have to be deicated and I do not see that here!!! I have put well over 20 grand into my RX, a 20b at this time is out of sight..... As soon as one of you beat me light to light I will entertain the idea but as for now.... Show up or SHUT UP!!!!!! Progressive has my vote whether you like it or not!!!

It's either going to be a 20B swap or 13B-RE seeing as the Turbo I will be using will be either a T78 or the T04R.I'm more towards a 20B's torque myself.

I see where I may look a little hot headed.... Honestly I am not. I am just sick of everyone talking shite about stuff they know nothing about. Quotes are quotes. Finished product is always way more then originally quoted. Trust me I know. All I'm saying is Progressive knows their shite. I trust them.
If you are doing a 20B upgrade good on ya! I can not wait to see the finished product.

I'm still tossing the Idea around.I want to see what yardpigs friend wants for his.I might see what the bank can arrange for me. I'll do the swap either way tho.I won't run it I don't think till I can get enough $$$ together for a T04R tho.I might try it on stock twins in non-seq mode.Need a Halteck E11 to run it with the new LT1 coils with built in ignitors to do a Direct Fire ignition. BCTY.Heres a site just incase you didn't bookmark it.....12A-13BT
