Hello guys. we have been working on a project for a while and I thought I'd share. We've installed a 13B Mazda RX7 turbo rotary engine and 5 speed tranny in a '69 GT. I intended to use the twin turbo setup that came on the engine, but just didn't have enough room and had to go with a larger single. This will produce more power though and that's not a problem. We estimate it will be 300+ HP and the car will weight around 2200 pounds.
Portions of the floor were cut out so that square tubing could be installed to brace up the body. An 8.8 Ford rear axle from a fox body Mustang was installed with a 4 link suspension. Even with this the stock floor and engine bay sheetmetal is close to original.
I expect to have it running very soon and am looking forward to that. Have a good one.
