    Hey guys, Im thinking about buying a FC3S RX7 and I had a few questions, first how hard is it to swap a 13b or a 20b (if I have the money for a 20b) into it?? Also how is it during the winter, I wont be driving it too much in the snow but it would be the only transportation. Finaly this is a general question but if I got a front bumper how hard would it be to take it off for the winter and then put it back on??
    thanks
    andy.

    20b conversion, initially sourcing one, plus how expensive are full custom mounts and brackets? Rough guess, probly 20k AUSD.

    Forgot to edit but I found out that it would roughly cost $10K USD and the mounts are $250 for the 20b with the 20b being 4k and a haltech 2k. Also a 13b-re would cost 4k with the motor at 1k. But can anyone answer the other questions??

    To answer the second one yes you can take the bumper off if you have a little skill with slips and screws. Your first question you gonna be spending 25k usd +

    Is that 25k for the labour also?? Also, would the bumper fit in the right spot after the winter or is it really hard to line up??

    i dunno how it is for FC's but on the fd it covers just about everything. The bumper shouldnt be any different after winter not like the holes are gonna change.

    I live up in canada and driving the FC in the snow is fine as long as you buy yourself a set of winter tires.

    easier to swap 20b in a fc than a FD.

    im swapping in my own engine into my s5 na... a 13bt. im almost done with fmic, upgraded turbo and manual swap all for about 3.5k. not too expensive if you do shit yourself and you actually try to shop around.
