      Nice looking car.

      At that ride height, you should have balljoint spacers and check/correct bump steer. Also, add caster.

      I was running 550# front and rear, with a big rear bar and stock front...

      Must be a heck of an RX-7, everything I read is use lowest possible octane on NA, and that factory spec for turbo cars was 87. Is that just for 1st and 2nd gen cars?

      Troll on my friend.

      Clearly you have a personal axe to grind, and have added that context to the actual words typed in this thread. I hope you find a way to recover some day. In the meantime,...

      Yes they (most) do. The butterfly is to regulate air flow. Without continuously variable cam lift (like BMW), you still regulate engine speed by regulating airflow at the throttle body, almost always...

      Pretty sure that is a 4.2 with the smogged carburetor. Expect gasser HD pickup fuel economy (or worse) with that combo. We had a 1990 with the same drivetrain. Fun trucks.

      Yep. There are a lot of 'credits' available to an OEM to reach 54.5 CAFE. Real world fleet average will likely get to the 40s though IMO.

      I agree that is IS a good thing, but recognize that we are...
