DavidPHumes' turbo 5.3 FC part out


New Member
I have had something come up that requires a good deal of cash. Unfortunately, my RX-7 is somewhere that I have a lot of cash tied up, so parting it out is my only real choice (no, not having a kid or getting married at the moment). I am keeping the car as a roller, but removing everything else of value. I will be back someday soon to build something bigger and better, but for now having a 600HP car just isn't the highest on my list of priorities. Knowing what I do now, there's things I'd like to do different anyway, so this is an opportunity more of a loss in my eyes.

More will be added as I find more things on the car that I forgot I purchased. This list is however mostly comprehensive.

Here's my build thread: http://www.norotors.com/index.php?topic=3609.0

Everything is located in Duluth, Minnesota 55812.

- Will also include steel driveshaft for the PG/8.8" combo

NOTE: This setup should be good for 600-750RWHP depending on transmission. Requires Speedway Motors high mount alternator bracket and minor clearancing to passenger side frame rail (like 2 pounds of a small hammer).

Only difference from the pics vs. now is everything is wrapped in DEI titanium lava wrap instead of the Napa wrap.
