Is that it? That makes it sound almost doable. o.o;
Check your PMs :P

nagase,

honestly the swap sounds a little beyond you based on your posting. FYI, with their age, the single worst, most unreliable component on an FC is the wiring harness. Soooo many problems stem from the harness and the best thing to do is get the car running on aftermarket EFI and engine harness. I've had a lot of rx7's and ran them all on my e6k or the old v3 wolf3d. At one point maybe 3 years ago i owned a 28k original mile 87 turbo II. Even that car needed the harness replaced to be a good car. It ran better than it did in 87 on the haltech. BTW, the money spent on a 200+hp NA 13b is retarded when you could make the same power and probably 75% more torque on a turbo for nothing. Plus, if you were serious about NA power you'd start with a 4 port anyway.

Lol, I'm well past this. I'd be getting a 13bre and streetporting it with RX8 eshaft and rotors. Anyway.

Any link to that aftermarket wiring harness you're talking about?

I'd always heard RX7 harnesses were unreliable as well, so you can work around that with an after market ECU?

Nagase, the engine wiring alone would not be that hard, if you take your time there is little that can go wrong. If you do have problems then there is always help on the forums...

most ecus come with a harness, unterminated of course. As far as mega squirt, i don't know a lot about it or the different rleases. From the little I know, it seems like it will drive a 3rd gen style CAS out of the box but not 2nd gen CAS. Again, i don't know much about it, so don't take this as fact.
