    mid to high 13 sec car stock, do a full exhaust and fuel mods = 12's easy

    cool.


    he took off before me and when his rear bumper was at my front bumper, i took off.

    near the end of redline in first gear, we were dead even.

    and then i had to stop right away because there was a car in front of me. his lane was clear so he took off.

    Why would a new turbo allow you a higher top speed in 3rd gear? I hit about 105 in third hitting fuel cut at 8200 on the PFC at 105 crossing the end of the 1/4 when I was still mostly stock.

    Stock FDs run high 13s if you're a good driver. With intake/full exhaust/ecu you can get to low 13s on stock boost. 15psi will put you in the high 12s with upgraded primaries and an intercooler. Non-sequential, 17psi, fmic, all the fuel and ignition upgrades, ecu, intake, exhaust will just tap you into 11s. Thats about as far as you can go on the stock twins.

    Pretty darn fast until something under the hood blows up, somewhat slower thereafter.

    What have you replaced to get 240k miles? That's easily the most miles I've heard on a rotary powered vehicle.

    i replaced the engine 6 times. Mostly from experimenting and pushing the limits so that my buddies can gain knowledge base. This was back in the day when the FD had few experts, no PFC, etc....

    Couple of the engines were paid for by the "group"

    My car was the test mule.

    Replaced tranny once after mechanic broke the synchro from a mis shift.

    Other than upgrading radiator, injectors, ECU, SMIC and stock turbos, the rest of the car is pretty much original.

    I know these cars well enough to feel comfortable buying one with more than 100k miles. I can tell from driving it how it was care for.

    My car looks and drives better than FDs that I have seen with less than 100k miles.

    It sure helps to do maintainence like fluid changes routinely.

    Also detailing every week makes a huge difference.
