Surprise 1991 Mazda RX 7 Convertible as an OCS graduation gift. The significance: He owned one 15 years ago and has always wanted one again. He left a Gin Blossoms CD in the disk player when he traded in the old RX7 - putting one in this disk player was just another added touch to the surprise.
1991 S5 Mazda RX-7 Convertible Test Drive
S5 convertible Mazdaporn. It may be boring to a lot of folks. I wind it out at 3:45, soundcheck at 4:40.
When I filmed this video it had a few mods for track days:
Kirk roll bar
Racing beat streetable header
Rtek 2.0 n/a ECU
Adjustable rear camber link
Hawk HP+ brake pads
Braided stainless brake lines
Momo steering wheel with quick release
I put it mostly back to stock and sold it a few months ago. It is a gorgeous car. I lost my extra garage space and wasn't about to leave it outside, so she had to go :(

Rush Imports Baby Hulk (running Adaptronic e420c) on the dyno
http://adaptronic.com.au - If you can tell, this is an S13 Silvia, with a 1UZFE engine, and a truck turbo. The Exhaust points upwards and it's quite loud, so the audio cuts out at full throttle on this video I'm sorry!
The car is built by Neil Griffiths from Rush Imports in Queanbeyan (NSW Australia), and runs an Adaptronic e420c ECU. The ignition has been upgraded to coil on plug from the 3UZFE engine and runs wasted spark. The injectors are run semisequentially (as from the factory).
