    1. Automatics are better for drag when built properly
    2. Someone out there built a bolt-in Chevy V8 block engine cradle for the RX-7
    3. It's not that expensive
    4. I want one

    :D

    A guy I know did the 350 in a late 80s something RX7...he says it hauls major ass. This guy also has a riding lawnmower powered a 750cc honda motorcycle engine ;) Funny thing is, he's supposed to be helping me with my swap! :blink:

    [sarcasm]I'd take the underengineered, prone-to-cracking-a-cylinder-head Chevy big block any day.[/sarcasm]

    Actually, dropping a massaged and boosted LS1 or LS6 into an RX-7 is very appealing to me.
