1)   Do you sell jspec/japan imported engines?
No, I do not import or sell any jspec engines. I can only build from what you bring me.
2)   Do you have any engines on the shelf, already built, and ready to ship?
No, I build all engines on a per order basis, and I require your core up front to build from.
3)   Can you get me a 3 rotor engine?
No, I do not import or sell any jspec engines, and this engine was never sold in the US.
4)   Do you sell used engines?
Normally, no. ON very rare occasions, I will part out a car which had a running engine, or I will take an engine in trade for a conversion of some sort. I check the engine out and compression test it, and then post it for sale on the rx7 forums. This is very rare, though.
5)   Can you sell me the parts I’ll need to rebuild my engine, like gaskets, seals, etc.?
No, I do not sell any rebuild parts or kits. I buy all my parts from atkinsrotary.com, you’ll need to contact them, or another supplier, for your parts.
6)   Can I send in my housings to be ported, and then you return them to me for assembly?
No, I do not perform porting out-the-door. Porting is very time consuming, and is usually a break-even proposition with my current pricing. I only make money off the engine build itself, not the porting. Most builders regard their ports as proprietary, and will not do this at all.
7)   Can you install a turbo on my nonturbo rotary?
First, read the turbo conversion writeup page, it has answers to most all of your questions. But no, I do not perform custom turbo installs on nonturbo engines. IF I perform a turbo conversion, it uses stock turbo II model parts and engine.
8)   Do you buy core engines? How much do you offer?
Yes, I sometimes buy cores. IT’s often hard to know what you’re buying with a core. They can range from fully rebuildable to fully junk…every part inside trashed. Because of this, I usually offer little for cores in which their condition cannot be guaranteed. I also offer credit towards your rebuild for any core(s) you may trade in. Note that I cannot always commit to buying your core. I may not have funds available at the time, I may have an excess of that particular core (I usually have plenty of 86-88 NA stuff), or shipping may cost too much to be worthwhile. Here is a general rate schedule that I pay for core engines, dependent on condition; I do not buy pre 86 cores at all, as they are rarely in useable condition.
••   86-88 nonturbo block only $75-100 ea.
••   86-88 nonturbo long block w/accessories $100-150 ea.
••   87-88 turbo block only $100-200 ea.
••   87-88 turbo long block w/accessories $150-250 ea.
••   89-91 nonturbo block only $100-200 ea.
••   89-91 nonturbo long block w/accessories $150-200 ea.
••   89-91 turbo block only $150-250 ea.
••   89-91 turbo long block w/accessories $200-300 ea.
••   93-95 turbo block only $200-400 ea.
••   93-95 turbo long block w/accessories $300-500 ea.
9)   Do you sell rx-7s whole (whole cars)?
I do rarely have a car or 2 for sale, but I find fewer and fewer good deals out there these days, so I don’t often fool with finding a car to fix and resell. Generally I don’t have anything for sale.
10)   Do you buy rx-7s whole or for parts?
Yes, I will consider offers for cars for sale. Generally if I buy one, I expect it to be for parts. Don’t expect me to offer more than about $6-800 tops (say, for a turbo model, complete) or 2-400 for a nonturbo model, or a roughed-up car. If you’re asking much more than this price range, it isn’t anything I want to fool with.
