Ever since I can remember, the FD3S Mazda RX7 has been one of my favorite cars of all time. Dare I say, it is the sexiest car to come out of the 90's, and probably one of the sexiest cars of all-time. Aside from that, it is also one of the most capable chassis of all-time, excelling in just about anything you can throw at it.
Back when I first heard about people swapping V8's into these cars, I thought it was crazy-talk. It boggled my mind! I figured a swap like that would totally ruin the car's balance. Boy, was I wrong! It actually improves the balance in most cases, and in the case of this particular car, makes it haul some serious a**! Ok, time for the pics.
What you're looking at here is a stroked, 408 cu. in. LSX. Fully-built, top and bottom. Will make ~500whp naturally aspirated. In a car that weighs ~2,800lbs., that's pretty insane!
