turbo from rx7

Will a twin turbo from an rx7 fit direct to an rx8?

Yes, in fact, you can use two twin turbos from the RX-7's. That means, you'll have four turbos!

BTW, it's also a direct swap.

I also recommend adding exhaust bearings and cross drilled brake lines so that it can handle all that power.

Psh, what a n00b, every true JDM racer knows that you need a Kuhneutson Valve (http://kalecoauto.com/index.php?main...&products_id=9) when going turbo...

stfu all of u,

why u giving our new friend a hard time.

he dont need no swap from 7's Twin turbo swap.

he just need 2 Turbonator and he will get the same if not more HP out of it.

1 Turbonator can give him maybe around 30 hp. 2 is 60. thats enough for most people.

I <3 the OP.

He inspired me to put 6 turbos and one double-sized turbonator in my car.

So far I've done a quarter mile in 8.69696 seconds.

For all you thread crappers: If you don't have anything to contribute to OP then GTFO! I'm sick and tired of all your sarcastic remarks!

To OP: Don't listen to these guys, just make sure you also buy some blinker fluid since the power from the four turbos will suck all the juice out of your battery and will make your blinkers blink super slow on one side and super fast on the other. Just add blinker fluid to fix that problem.

I'll answer this one straight-faced.

The answer is no. It wouldn't bolt up due to the location of the exhaust ports. Besides, all the old Rx-7 turbos have dated designs.
