These wheels came on almost all S2 Rx-7's here.
I have heaps of them if anyone wants a set.
They tend to corrode badly so all of my wheels need restoration.
And shipping to Australia is $$$
I have shipped a few sets to the US and shipping was about US$200.
Australia is more...

The carburetor kit is known as the Rotary Engineering Twin Weber DCD36 setup.
Best carb setup for low down torque.

The 1984-1985 US 12A also had this H-type housings in the 4 port engines.
Basically the stronger 12aT housings in N/A form.

Exactly.
Never s1 (so never SP), only s2, hard to find a pair not corroded.

Mate, why do you suddenly feel the need to add a worthless post to the end of every topic in the forum?!? If you'd actually read the thread you would have seen it said that they came out on series 2 rx7s in America and some parts of Europe.

I did not know :oops: , Because I have seen them on an RX3, and I have not been on the computer in a long time.

Not sure what you felt the need to send me pm me about and put up an angry face and picture for? Let me remind you of the posts already in this thread:

Rota_Motor wrote:those wheels are found on US and euri spec S1 or S2 RX-7s, not worth alot where they come cfrom apparently, but maybe worth a couple hundred in australia if you can find someone that wants them.

and I think bumpstart is on the money, webers, maybe IDF but they seem to use them on VW's a fair bit.

with a very clean (only a few years old obviously) first gen with those wheels
Now I'm not looking for a fight or anything, but I must admit that going through 20+ topics with 'new posts' that were a sentence from yourself that added nothing to the topic was pretty annoying. In this topic, you posted:

And I pointed out that the answer to your question was already in the thread and asked why you felt the need to add a post on everything. Nothing to get upset about. Never mind, hope that clears things up for you. Have a nice night...
