Someone needs to permanently change your screen name to include tube noodler.

Sleepyhead? John? Please?

Looks like tube noodling will not be necessary.

I was able to work on the rx7 this weekend. 

Nothing to speak of picture wise, but I got the motor back approximately an inch further, installed the drive shaft and worked on the transmission mount.

I need to extend it about an inch further rearward to work with the t56.

Shifter lines up great!

It's funny to me that these cars with the smallest factory engines happen to have the largest factory engine bays.

I wonder how much the overall weight of the vehicle changes, if any. Rotaries are compact, but pretty dense.

I've owned two V8-swapped FC RX-7s. The engine bays are perfect for the swap.
