Default Hello world

Salutations, I just picked up a white '91 5 spd turbo for cheap. Seems to run ok but needs some TLC. This will be my new project car. Pics after I take a few. I work for a small airline and am in Key West FL right now. I have a deep love for RX7s, and my DD is an 06 Toyota X-Runner (na). So hi!

Hello and welcome. Let's see some of those pics and also post vehicular details.

I definitely recommend thoroughly mapping out your intent with the car before diving in the deep end and you accidentally end up over spending. I saw that because it's very easy to do. As with me, having a 1.6 and 5-speed means you have to retain modest torque goals unless you plan on drop cubic dollars.

Good luck!

Here it is. Pics from when I bought her, then took her home. So far I've made a list of everything I could find that needs fixing, a list of mods I'd like to do after that, but! a big thing is going to be figuring out what has already been done to it. First thing is to replace the gasket in between the turbo and exhaust manifold...but I broke a bolt off trying to get it off hahaha.
