1993 Mazda RX-7

What's the best way to get people fired up with a car build? You do every one of the things shouldn't do, overlook the standard. Of course, most devotees have a tendency to change autos with precisely the same as anyone else, however then these autos all begin looking somewhat vanilla. Same power mods, same air, everything. The minute I met Albert Zheng, I knew immediately he was a person who took after patterns from the get-go as a developer, however nowadays he just DGAF. Yet, there's something to be said in regards to that sort of demeanor, it's certain, and his RX-7 oozes a lot of his identity. It doesn't fit into one standard box, yet rather verifies numerous others to make it unique. Be that as it may, saying this doesn't imply that the venture didn't begin off fundamental, since it completely did.

Everything starts in '09 when Albert purchased the FD off a companion who had smashed it, and it sat around in a shop for a few years until it was set available to be purchased. In Albert's eyes, the RX-7 was an achievable '90s-period Japanese supercar, a much better option when it's hard to get a Skyline GT-R and the sticker price of a NSX or Supra is only too far out of reach. It was the ideal giver auto, he says: "It was stock, Montego Blue, and had a quite clean inside. It hadn't been running for a couple of years, yet I wasn't agonized over that. I knew I needed to manufacture something insane from the beginning." That's the place arrange one of annoying individuals started.

With regards to adjusting RX-7s, you're either an idealist or you go the V8 course. A turbocharged revolving is amazingly satisfying to the ears, yet we've seen dreadfully large portions of a similar motor issues that strike practically every FD proprietor. An extraordinary however heretical option is to swap in a LS engine—all of a sudden there's an abundance of brown haze legitimate parts, a shitload of force, and enhanced vehicle adjust (you can accomplish a 50/50 control/weight proportion with a LS swap). As sweet as it may be to keep up a revolving, it's difficult to oppose the dim side of household power, much like Albert would: "I be able to needed 400 hp, actually suctioned," he says. "I tore the 13B out the day after I towed the auto back. I've generally adored the commotion of a cam'd LSx when it's sitting, and the engine sits splendidly in the motor straight." No matter how grievous a demonstration you feel a LS transformation is, it truly sits in the FD's motor cove as though it were intended to be there. On top of that, Albert pulled some of his old Honda incorporating traps with the FD. "My Hondas dependably had shaved inlets and tucked wiring outfits, so I made a point to make the motor sound super clean with the assistance of Rywire, which wound up building another saddle sans preparation with just the necessities."

Albert used to own a Lotus, one that comes from the factory with this Krypton Green paint. "This color is rare even in the Lotus community," he explains. "I've always liked loud colors, so I felt it would flow well with the vision I had for the car. I do regret selling my Elise and tried to buy it back, but he won't make the same mistake I made." On top of a wild color, the FD sports some premium Japanese aero, such as RE Amemiya widebody panels, a C-West front bumper, a Voltex rear wing, and Kouki JDM front turn signals and taillights. He can also set the ride height with his AirRex air suspension, and judging by the way it looked at the NorCal Wekfest show, he had it stanced perfectly.

In the end, "It's my childhood dream car," he says. "I didn't want to do what the rest of the Internet wanted to do, and I want it to do it all: win shows, be driven hard, sit low, be engineered a certain way...no matter what, it has to have my style." Hard to argue with that.
