I bought the FC a year ago , a while back it started runnin like **** so i bought the nissan thinkin the FC's engine was screwed but turns out just needed a new tps for 75$ from Atkins Rotary. SOHC more parts and stuff and old Z's and other old school cars are sohc, more lumpier soundin with a cam. I bought a ported polished head and it has a 3 angle valve job and up graded vavle train and over 500 lift cam don't know exact specs would have to take it to a machine shop, for 70$. I know the FC is has a lot of potential just didn't know if i could make the nissan faster than it non turbo wise. So now i have the 2 cars and they are perfectly running.

I would choose the SOCH 240sx but the RX7 looks like it would be faster...the middle scene is from "Fastlane" show on FOX.

THEY ACTUALLY SHOWED THAT?!?! i gotta watch it seriously . me and my friend wanted to see what an rx-7 can do. it was pretty sick. we were in a v8 explorer with 5 peeps, so we had not chance either way, but we just wanted to see what it could do and it took off like a rocket. dont know what he had in it but it was sweet

yeah they do have a prob passing emissons, the exhaust on the old ones is pushed out before it's fully ingnited. so when once the unspent exhaust and fuel hits oxygen boom flame out of the exhaust pipe, usually when you don't have cats etc to help get rid of the exhaust flames. Love it flames out of the exhaust the real way not fast and furious style cheaters. High boost=3 foot or bigger flames. thought i would add that in
