IllMike RX7 LS1 is just clean! We didn’t get an official shoot together even though i’ve been dying to use the new lenses I got for Christmas but I couldn’t wait to post these. LS1 power in an RX7 I have to say I am definitely a fan. I’ve had friends with FD’s and the headaches they had in just keeping the rotary up , running and healthy is just a pain and this swap is a definitely more and more common now a days. The 99 spec is also a plus with his build, aero, Stoptech, and the LE37’s come together brilliantly. Check out the details of work that went into the car.
