Blog: Race Ready: 1991 Mazda RX-7 FC Turbo

This 1991 Mazda RX-7 FC Turbo is being offered by a seller in Langley for $33,000. Finished in Midnight Blue and sitting on Enkei RPF1 wheels, the seller notes that the vehicle body had been driven 137,000 kms, and the rebuilt engine has approximately 1000 kms. This heavily modified Mazda RX-7 two-seater coupe was last Dyno tuned in June 2021 at Forcefed Performance Turbo and Tuning in Abbotsford, BC. 

The Mazda RX-7 was manufactured by the Japanese automaker from 1978 to 2002, and the model, designed by Akio Uchiyama, made Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best list five times. Production of the second generation; the FC (referred to in Japan as the Mazda Savanna), ran from 1985 to 1992. Only 272,027 were produced in that timeframe. The body style is reminiscent of its contemporary Nissan 300ZX as well as the Porsche 944, and Mazda engineers drew inspiration for its suspension design from the Porsche 928. 

This Mazda RX-7 FC is powered by a 1308 cc 13B-T turbo twin-rotor engine. Air-flow in and out of the combustion chamber has been increased by bridgeporting the engine. This adds intake voume, resulting in an increase in top-end power and peak power output. This type of porting is intended for racing, with an exhaust note, courtesy of Racing Beat, that gives the game away. The vehicle is also equipped with a short shifter for quick shifts, high revs and max power, and a 4 core radiator and fan. The block on this 13B-T has been pinned, and the intake is running water/methanol injection. The engine is managed by a Microtech ECU.
