    mikeinsanmarcos,

    Congrats on the nice ride!

    Aaron Cake,

    I had an '87 RX7 turbo, excellent engine. With a few mods (exhaust, intake, custom boost controller), I had red-lined the tach in 5th at 155mph. You will be happy with a turbo

    Cool

    Fosgate: I keep picturing a Cosworth, but I'm probably way off. Sounds like an interesting car. Sigh, the Aussies, the Japanise (sorry for the spelling) and the Europeans always get the coolest cars.

    PressLab: Oh, I know I'll be happy once it's all installed, but I'm sure there will be some periods during the winter when I'll just be thinking "why?".

    Yes indeed... Mazda did rebadge some of those cars (with bit different body shape) and shipped it OS calling it Mazda 323 GTI Familia.
    Its exactly the same as the Ford TX3 but looks bit ugly and not as round as the TX3 was.
    But they both go as hard as anything!

    Cool

    Now I know the car you're talking about. I've seen pictures of the 323 GT (what it is called over here) on the RX-7 forum...
