Tech 2 Motorsports FD3S

This FD3s caught my eye at the SEMA Show 2008. It was the Tech 2 Motorsports and 2JZSWAP.COM RX7 with a 1JZGTE VVTI motor in it. It's a very clean build and I must say, I am liking it very much.

This short writeup was taken from 2JZSWAP.COM, 2JZSWAP.COM / Tech 2 Motorsports FD3S RX7 with 2jz 1JZvvti swap thread.

Here are some pics of Rx7 with 1JZvvti swap and specs.

Tech 2 Motorsports and 2JZSWAP.COM is proud to present our 2007/2008 project car. Since we are known for our outrageous engine swaps we have decided to raise the bar one more time. We currently built a 1994 Mazda RX7. We know that the RX7 have been built up more times than one can count, so the question is what makes our RX7 stand out?

We are took the 13B rotary engine that is prone to breaking, and tossed it in the dumpster. In its place a 1JZGTE VVTI motor out of a 1998 Toyota Chaser from Japan. Why did we pick the 1JZGTE VVTI over the 2JZGTE, which we normally swap into our Nissan 240SX’s you might ask? The 1JZGTE VVTI singe turbo motor weights substantially less that its’ big brother the 2JZGTE and it features newer technology such as VVTI. The motor can be revved much higher than it big brother the 2JZGTE as well. This light weight advanced motor build by Yamaha, combined with the best Japanese chassis built, can only mean we are going to be one fast car, which will turn everyone’s head.

To make the car look as good as it will perform, we turned to our friends at Shine Auto Project. They are supplied us the complete Burnout body kit, Burnout 20MM wide body fenders, and roof spoiler. The kit we installed is more of a VIP look than a drift car look. The wide body fenders flow with the lines of the car, unlike so many tacky, boxy looking kits you see at shows. The stock mirrors were tossed and a set of APR Carbon mirrors were installed in there place. Lastly we installed a APR GTC500 Carbon Rear spoiler to maintain the VIP look.

To make this ride handle, we installed a set of Tein Super Drift coilovers. A pair of Cusco sway bars are replacing the OEM units to increase handling. Since the car is going to handle like its’ on rails and have more power and torque than ever before, we need to be able to stop the beast. We are turned to the brembo for a 4 piston brake kit to make this car come to a halt. The car is rolling on a set of 19 x 10 Enkei 2 piece rpf1 wheels with Falken FK 452 Tires.
