hey when starting with an rx-7 with high miles, what should you buy first to improve the engine from blowing up?

with that kind of mileage, you shouldn't expect to get more than 10,000 miles more out of it until you need a rebuild. it may already need a rebuild. but if you really need to extend the life, don't push it hard. warm it up properly, get a turbo timer, and even turn down the boost if you can.

Yeah, your pretty much SOL at this point... Just save up for a rebuild.

if you can save a few thousand over a year, you can handle it, but you will end up putting a few thousand more into it. if you're short on money, then i say don't do it.

They range from $250 to $20000, depending on year, mileage, and mods.

With the 240sx, insurance will be alot cheaper than a third gen, you can either turbo the KA (stock) engine, or there are many swaps you can do. (SR20, RB25DET, 13B, etc...)

Some of the S14's are getting hard to find... or atleast to wrestle them away from their owners...

Try the 240 forums.
