it all depends on how much money you have or are wanting to spend. You cant get a decent 3rd gen with low miles for under about $15,000.

You can get a decent 2nd gen turbo II for less than $5,000

the third generation would be faster though right?

lets say you put about 5-10 thousand dollars in upgrades on each which will be faster?


is it possible to put a third generation motor in an older body?

yes,

the easiest way is to buy adapting engine mounts from K2RD.com

Ted is GOD when comes to the 2nd gen RX-7
