« on: February 16, 2016, 05:06:24 AM »
Since theres not much going on the forum ill share a project i picked up a few months ago.
1973 rx3 wagon.
I picked it up, a car that sat for awhile.
Fixed a few things and dailied it for two months.
It was fun to drive, peppy and shot flames.
I wanted to have a little fun in it sooo i had a new engine built for it.
Bridge ported 12a, holley 650 double pumper, holley blue fuel pump, rx7 gsl 5 speed with an ACT clutch. The shifter housing was shortened to fit the rx3s tunnel
20 gallon alluminum fuel cell.
Shes almost done, jimmy d is building me a header for it.
After that i just need to get the driveshaft shortened, get an electric fan and buy premix and other fluids. She should be pushing about 230ish. Which is alot more than the 90 she had.
Here are some pictures of the hooptie


















I took her out to that trip to bagdad with the datsun guys before i took it apart. Kept up with all the Z cars easily. She hit about 135 which was really impressive for an old lady car. I cant wait to finish her and drive it with the new engine.
Once its done ill be looking into coilovers and hopefully a 4 link swap in the rear. Heres a video of her shooting flames

That is super cool, glad to see most of the trim and small details are there. Props for building a sleeper too, especially a wagon!

Did you add any baffling to the fuel tank or have a surge tank?

Thanks phil!
Well rosies back home and running.all thats left to do is have my driveshaft shortened and find a throttle cable. Oh and have the exhaust redone.
I picked up a set of panasports for her too! Im planning on having them powder coated in black.

Thanks bud!
https://youtu.be/YELgL9NBXcc heres a quick video that jimmy took. I promise to get a better one when i get some premix in her. She sounds amazing! I dont think my neighbors will like me for much longer lol.
A Bridgeported 12a with no exhaust is obnoxious lol.
