Local shop said exactly this when giving a reason for the success and popularity of all the RX7/LS swaps they've done. He said there's lots of room making it physically easy to do, and the electronics are a no-brainer. The customer leaves the shop feeling like they got a good value and the shop makes money.

FM currently has two cars in the shop getting LSx swaps, and both of them will require A/C. So we may have a solution to that problem in the next couple months.

There's a member out at MSR with an lx6 in an rx7. That car is scary fast. With real suspension, its an apex predator.

Keep studying.

It might come in handy if you ever hope to afford a LS1 swap.

And the funny thing is that aluminum lsx is nearly the same weight as the heavy ole iron 13b.
