I try to change the look for the green RX-7 every year.. but after this build, I'm hoping to track the green rx-7 more. Yeah, the IFO thing was kind of BS... But what do you expect from people who does it just for money They said Cosmo can not be consider JDM class because it was a 'Real' JDM.. That just made me laugh... idiots!

Here is something new for the 20B that I'm debuting..



ITs the new Xcessive Engineering lower intake manifold for the 20B. This is made for those interested in doing 3 rotor swap on RX7s, by lowering the height of the manifold and also each runner has an individual injector port. By using this, I'll be running 6x ID2000s on this manifold and 3x ID1000s on primaries on the irons. This much fuel, I'll be good for E85, 1000+WHP.... but shooting for 700-800 ish WHP.



I also studded the LIM and cut various FD hardwares to get this studded look with chrome hardwares. Also, better view of the LIM with UIM.

My off time past week, I was fabricating a blank cluster surround so I can retro fit my Defi cluster.



about 50% done and going to make a mold once its smoothed out, primered, painted, and then make it in CF.

Also, AC panel



and shifter panel



Lot of sanding fiberglass but hopefully all will be worth it at the end..

Bondo is your friend with all that fiberglass if you end up with any craters or holes. I hate sanding that stuff. Makes you super itchy.
