1980 Mazda Rx-7 Gs 2+2 13b Swap on 2040-cars

Year:1980 Mileage:78000 Color: Body was resprayed

Orlando, Florida, United States

Orlando, Florida, United States

I have for sale my 1980 Mazda RX-7 with SA22C VIN code.


N/A 4-port 13B built with 12A irons and GSL-SE housings. Engine has a large-streetport, is dowel-pinned on the hot side, has RA Super Seals and rotors are race-toleranced for high RPM use (spark cut-off set at 10,000 RPM). Was built by the folks at Kilo Racing in Saint Cloud, FL. Compression is good at about 100PSI on each face of each rotor. The OMP is still hooked up and functional, but I also premix a small amount of TCW-3 2-stroke oil to supplement that just to be safe. Engine has approx. 22,000 miles on the build.

Has twin MSD boxes and MSD Blaster coil packs with Magnecor EFI shielded racing wires. Plugs are brand-spanking-new NGK BR8EQ-14's.

Is fed through a Racing Beat intake manifold topped off with a Holley 600 (Not RB) and Moroso low-pro air cleaner. The exhaust exits through an RB header collected into a 2.5 in pipe that runs to a no-name gutted muffler.

The Carb has been rebuilt and retuned, new spark plugs (as stated above), new fuel filter, new Mallory FPR, new distributor cap and rotor, and is midway through and oil change. I have the old parts on hand as proof.

My car has had the A/C removed, and twin belts run to the pulley and water pump/radiator fan. The fan does it's job excellently! Never seen the temp gauge go above half way.


Driveshaft is welded on both ends and car has original non-LSD axle. The transmission was rebuilt at Kilo Racing at the same time the engine was built. The exhaust rubs the axle so you can hear clunks now and then. Engine mounts are in superb condition. Discs and drums are in good condition as well.

The car is lowered 1 in from factory height and sits on stock wheels wrapped in Kumho Solus KR21's 185/70-13 section tires. Front suspension has RB sway bar.


All original black vinyl and is worn for it's age. Seats have tears along the inner seams like every other older vehicle. The headliner is missing and a few knobs and other small trim pieces. My car also has rear seats. Not sure if they are factory or not.


Body was resprayed 7 years ago the factory Stardust Blue color. There is some bubbling along the spoiler, driver side corner corner of the the rear glass, and in front of the windshield. Haven't seen them grow since I've had the car and are still small enough to take care of easily.

The car also has a body-colored sunroof that has it's vinyl interior panel in place. Goes up and down with no problems and doesn't leak a bit. Windows need help going up and down, and also don't leak. All of the glass on the car is original. All the exterior lighting works except the turn signals. They didn't work when I bought the car, so I used hand signals and simply got so used to doing that I never bothered to check out why they don't work.

Reason For Selling:

I've used my RX-7 as a daily driver for the last 7 months out of necessity and at 9-10 MPG, my wallet is perpetually thin, and as a college student it gets hard to feed the beast and make payments for courses. As my daily, I take maintenance VERY SERIOUSLY with this car and it has rewarded me with superb reliability. I never have to worry if she'll start in the morning. If you're looking for a d.d. RX-7 or a base for restoration, this is a perfect starter. Also, again, since it's my daily, the mileage will obviously increase over time. I'm close to 78K on the chassis and 23K on the engine. Next oil change is due at 79K.

I've put a good amount of money and time into parts and labor (other's and my own) to make sure she runs for many more miles. I've had my time with the car, enjoyed it, loved it, and now I'm ready to let it go.

Clean title, registered antique, call or text (321) 527-6824.

Thanks for looking!

Car and Driver lists 10Best for 2013, same as it ever was

Wed, 05 Dec 2012

Forgive us for having the distinct feeling of déjà vu, but it certainly feels like we've been here before. By that we are referring Car and Driver and the announcement of its annual 10Best vehicles for 2013. To be sure, it's an impressive selection of cars that combine heart-pounding performance and frugal sensibilities, but it also represents something of a broken record on the part of C/D. We're not so sure that's a flaw, though, as the resulting list is tough to argue with.
Vehicles like the Ford Mustang, Porsche Boxster, and BMW 3 Series have maintained their high-horsepower spots on this list for several years now. Even on the more practical and nimble end, the Honda Accord, Honda Fit and Mazda Miata have not budged. These continued spots are even in light of redesigns for some vehicles such as the Accord, Boxster and 3 Series.
In fact, the only newcomer to the 10Best list this year are the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ twins, which knocked out the Cadillac CTS-V. We think it would have been a huge misstep to have excluded the FR-S/BRZ, even in light of the supercharged Caddy's lamentable departure from 10Best.

Ford, Toyota clean up in Best Car For The Money Awards

Fri, 22 Feb 2013

The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."
Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.
