View Full Version : My Goals

October 28th, 2005, 10:12 AM
Well, I am finally coming to a finish on my autox car, a 91 RX7 TurboII, and will soon focus some cash flow towards the Supra once I put the finishing touches on the seven.

I want to stick with the 7m engine with moderate power (350rwhp should do). It already has 3 inch exhaust straight through, but the previous owner put some cheapass ractive muffler on it. Honestly it doesn't sound terrible, but I want that true Supra sound. What muffler, and possibly presilencer, do you guys recommend to obtain that beautiful sound?
I'm sure I'll need at least a Walbro fuel pump and maybe Aeromotive FPR. Should I bump up to some 550 injectors or stick with stock?

Also, that stock turbo looks pretty beastly, can it safely handle my demands? I would hate to have to spend all that money on a crazy turbo setup if I really don't need to.

I'm not trying to go all out, I just want a bit more from it.

One more thing, the previous owner installed some aftermarket springs, I think he said they are B+G or something, all I know is that they're red lol. I want to get some new struts, any recommendations?

Sorry about the long post I'm just starting to love this car more and more each day!

you would definitely have to send your turbo out to be upgraded...$450...but your cars down for a week or 2. Ive heard an upgraded turbo can handle 500hp.

I've heard that the stock turbo can handle more than most people push it to. Any other opinions?

Hmmm... there is this wonderful thread in the FAQ section that explains exactly what is required to hit what HP levels. It's a bit out of date, as you can likely replace the fuel pump / injectors / fuel computer and replace it with a MAFT, but it's still a damn fine guide.

Yellow Konis are some of the best struts you can get Ive beat mine for the past 6 years and they have held up to my abuse. As far as springs go im not sure about the B&G springs but stay away from ST springs they are softer than the stock spring rates Eibach make a nice set that are firmer than stock so ya wont bottom out like me when ya hit a bump.

The stock turbo from my findings (not upgraded) really runs out of steam from 5800-6500 RPM. It just kind of dies off at the end, so a bolt on I think would be your best bet (smallest SP or BOSS turbo should do, and it'll be a lot more reliable then a upgraded CT)

Great info guys!
GrimJack thanks for the link that is very helpful!
Well I guess I'll push the turbo to it's limits and change when necessary :)
