LS Turbo-powered Mazda RX-7 FD by Gooichi Motors

We chat with Sam Morris at the SEMA Show about his wild Mazda RX-7

Gooichi RX7

I PRETTY much just wanted to build a nasty street car," says Sam Morris of his LS-powered RX-7. We reckon he got what he wanted - Sam's hoping to see 1200hp from the combination, with a stick shift!

Under the bonnet is 408ci LQ9 motor, pumped up by an 80mm Borg Warner turbo, Shaun's Custom Alloy intake manifold, Turbosmart wastegate and blow-off valves and a Haltech ECU. The driveline consists of a Spec 25 road/race Muncie four-speed and an 8.8-inch Ford diff.

A Rocket Bunny kit adds the girth and the Bergmeister rims measure up at 18x15.5-inches at the rear and 18x11.5-inches at the front. Brakes are Wilwood and the factory IRS has been tossed for a four-link. Badness!
