I’m so far behind in my posts (story of my life, yadda yadda yadda), so here’s a quick build at only four pages long that was submitted by it’s owner, Colin. This is a nice and simple build, which goes through the process of an interior strip, engine bay clean up, engine rebuild, wheels/tyres, paint job, and finishes up with a well-used track day car that looks just as good sitting still as it does attacking the corners. The best part is you don’t have to sift through 100+ pages of chatter to see it take shape from beginning to end. I might be a little bit biased, as I love FC RX7s, but I feel this is an accurate representation of what regular car folk like you and I like to tinker with in our garages.

I’m a member of many different forums, but I’m not much of a poster. JDM Style Tuning was one of the first forums that I really got involved in, posting regularly and attending meets. While I don’t post there much these days, I still like to read the forum almost daily and make the odd post every now and then. There are a number of great builds on the forum, so I thought I’d do a little spotlight on some of my favourites in no particular order. Please note, this is not a “best of”, it’s just the ones that tickle my fancy. There’s a few builds to get through, so I’ll split them up over a few different posts over the next couple of months in between regular build features.

So, the last RX7 I posted was devoid of a rotary engine, so here’s another one that keeps it’s Wankel roots, but with a twist. If you love engineering, machining, welding, lathes, heat treatments, stress analysis, and 3D renders, then you’re going to love this completely custom made 4-rotor powerplant. Definitely one for the tech-heads amongst us.
Thanks to Oliver for submitting

One of my favourite websites, MotoIQ, has just finished up one of their staff builds, Project V8 RX7. As it’s title suggests, it’s a Mazda RX7 receiving a V8 engine transplant, an California Smog-Legal E-Rod LS3 to be precise. The build is documented in trademark MotoIQ style (more signal, less noise) so head below to check out the build.

Japanese hatches such as the FC RX7 and S13 180SX make great candidates for pickup conversions, as we’ve seen before in Japan with a few drift cars getting the chop.
Earl has created his own spin on the concept with this 2nd Gen RX7, come and see it get built and continually evolve.

I don’t know if this is classified as a “build’ but its a cool car regardless. Proof that the simple things in life are often the best!
