Just moved out to michigan from new york in june. Very cool to see a great rotary seen up here!
anyways here is my build up unitl now, i am currently stockpiling parts for a 2jz swap to commence this winter. I am very excited!!!!!


Just gonna get everything caught up until now (copied from rx7club)

picked her up easter weekend of 2014, bone stock owned by an older lady with 93K on the dash
After a proper detail

finished up the semester, and got right back into working. which meant time to start stockpiling parts:

eventually picked up tires, got them mounted and threw them on with two weeks to spare before summer was over!!
Resulted in this, i was not very satisfied with the fitment but it was almost time for to go back to school and  free time was limited

Picked up a rocket bunny BRZ V2 splitter which i planned to eventually tie into with some canards, but unfortunately a block of ice fell off a truck on my way to school, hit the splitter and exploded most of it. el oh el
one of 5 pics i took before it became shrapnel, it lasted about 9 hours

so flew home a few weekends ago and drove her back up here. 11 hour trip and she performed flawlessly! left at around 10am and pulled in around 830ish. I think i was cruising woodward by 10 that night , where i met rich and marcus, which actually led me to this site!!

raised the front an inch so i could soften up the damping for the long ride, current front

Any problems with the current NA engine? Thinking of selling it?

no problems with it, 99K miles and runs flawlessly. and yes it will be for sale in a month or so along with the rest of the S5 drivetrain. a local sale would also be preferred  :)

How's the project? Curious with how this is going, I found this on the Rx7club forums, You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login I'm not sure if it would help, but it looks like the 2JZ swap is more common with FDs, so I can't wait to see one in an FC! Sometime different, I like different. Also, I'd be interested in buying that fan shroud off you if you decide to sell that.

PS, fan shroud is yours!
