I'm in Australia ! I have a 13b turbo in a s4 convertible and a hardtop I'm about to fit a gen 3 chev ls7 427ci v8 into! They have oodles more power on tap and are made of alloy !!! A ford V8 is iron and would throw the balance way out! Not saying the ls7 won't but it will be a lot less of a difference than the heavy ford option! Here in Australia the LS series of engines came in our commodore! Four door family car ! They came in auto or 6.speed ! That's what I'm using! There are kits including extractors crossmembers and everything needed to do it minus a aftermarket ecu to control it all! Then there are turbo/supercharger options! 1200rwhp is very achievable !!!

Well the most common swaps are putting in Small block ford's and Chevy's. The one I see mostly is the 5.0 Mustang motor swap. There are numerous kits for motor mounts and relocation brackets that make it a fairly straight forward swap. Do a little research and you will start seeing quite a few results that will answer your questions on How to's and so forth.

I have a rx7 series 5 13 B turbo motor the car starts and runs really well but once the car warms up its starts smoking and increases then after driving it the smoke starts to die down alot


The side seals for the rotors are bad. the only thing you can do is pull the engine apart and replace the seals IF the side housings are good. If they are bad, you cant machine them, they are JUNK. Find a shop that rebuilds Mazda Rotary engines. Mazda may be the best place to get a reman engine.

Car don't run


it deactivates cylinders 1, 4, 6, 7 between 1000 and 3000rpm. It will operate in 4 cyl mode when the torque requirement is less than 95% of the maximum availabe from 4 cylinders.
