    So yesterday I finally got my car to pass emissions so I could register it today. And now my secondary throttle plates arent opening causing the car to fall flat on its face antime it builds boost. And the car is also at the shop getting a new wheel bearing. :hs: :noes:

    between 13 and 15 city. In the 20s on the highway. I pay more for gas than I do for insurance. But then again any car as fast as mine isnt going to get great gas mileage. A little better maybe, but not a lot better.


    And for all the rx7 owners that have problems - from my experience (seeing as in the last 2 weeks I helped drop in engines in 2 different FDs), the way you treat the car is the way it'll treat you. Sadly, if you drive the car the way it was meant to be driven it will break. If you drive it like a grandma and just pimp it she'll treat you well in return. I chose the latter and couldnt be happier.
