I like the look of the wheels myself, the price is right on them, my only issue is that I've seen about 14 different weights listed for them and all but one seemed too heavy for my liking.

Yeah, it is already on the car and running great.

From what I hear it doesn't like to idle the RX7 injectors, so I will be going with something else, what, I don't know yet.

I also ordered this intercooler: http://www.cxracing.com/mm5/merchant...gory_Code=INCO

Quote:

Front Mount or V-Mount Turbo Intercooler, Core Size 18"x11"x3", Overall Size 24"x11"x3", 2.5" Inlet & Outlet One Side, 3" Thickness Core

Going to try an over the radiator setup. I am going to relocate the A/C drier into the engine bay to make some more room up front. I will post pictures if/when finished.

That's the same intercooler I've got my eye on, along with the over-the-rad setup. Let me know how that goes! Great car!

Yeah, I am interested in seeing how it goes myself. I took the bumper/support off yesterday to check things out, and it looks like I am not going to get enough room by just bending the A/C drier out of the way, so I am going to take it to an A/C specialties shop and have them relocate it somewhere else.

Did you buy the IC off CXracings website, or snag it off ebay? That's the same one I was going to get, but compared to their $50-$75 ICs, that one was like $150. What did you pay for it?

Ditto on the sportmaxes, got a set myself!

Yeah, it came from CXRacing. I ended up paying $200 for it, but I really wanted an over the radiator setup, so I can kinda justify the extra cost. Just look at how much a TDR setup costs.

The turbo would have been bigger if I would have bought it, but since it was free...meh.
