The crazy thing is I think the only thing stopping this car from cranking is the aftermarket alarm system that has a built-in starter/ignition lock. The 2nd pic is me trying to disable it ahaha. I almost have it completed removed, but will need to splice some wires back together.

You may have a problem with the coolant leaking into the engine since it was siting for so long with the coolant still in there.
it may have eaten through the gasket or even the block. just a thought.

Ahh ok, thank you.

Yea, I'm prepping the engine to be pulled, so that we can take a closer look. It is going to be sold as scrap though, as I am purchasing a new one.

My first turbo car was an rx7 :D .... I had an 86 that I did a s5 t2 swap. Had the engine rebuilt with a street port... car was fun on the stock turbo but I eventually trade for a turbo integra :facepalm: . The Integra blew up within 1 week

Miss rotary s though....

Ok, moved the 99 maxima out of the way yesterday. Tow truck will be coming to haul it off to scrap yard in a few days.

Time to pull the RX into the garage and start sanding!

Stopped by 3 Face Racing during lunch. The owner is going to see if they've got everything in stock to build me a 13bt. This may turn out to be a cheaper option for me because if I get a used engine it will need to be rebuilt anyway.

He requires a 50% deposit and about a month to build it. He's got my number and will call me when he has gone through the inventory.

The plan is to have the engine built and ready for install at the shop. Once the body is completely stripped and primed for paint I'll have it towed to the shop for drivetrain installation.

I'm also shopping around for the 4-piston mazda calipers and 5 lug hubs (they were not an option on the model FC I have). Last time I looked they were going cheap... like 200-300 for full 5-lug swap, including calipers and rotors (vented).

Need to decide on what standalone ECU I want. Looking at BC for coils.

I used to have an FC like this one stripped out as my daily driver!! Didn't even have a passenger seat. I got rid of it because it was a massive ticket magnet, even had a drug dog run through it once... guess the cop didn't understand there were no hiding places.

Also mine idle hunted from 1200-3500 rpm regularly and was straightpiped, kind of a bad combination haha

Ahhh yes, the infamous straight pipe lol

I'll only be takin her out on the weekends and maybe 1 or 2 nights during the week for fun. I hope the cops stay off my ass, but that's asking for a lot these days :P
