    1980 RX626 Coupe

    Just thought I would post some pics of my 13B 626 coupe.
    When I bought her, she was a two owner (both old guys), 75k on the clock,
    stock 2.0L, straight 626 coupe. But I bought her always knowing that she was going
    to have a heart transplant!

    What she looked like when I bought her with the 2.0l MA engine two years ago.




    Old engine out


    New engine in

    Extra gauges fitted with new bluetooth stereo.


    Small Exhaust - custom extractors to 2" collecting to 3" mandrel over the diff






    Now has these two home built 3" diameter, 500mm home made stainless steel packed resonators fitted
    near the recess under the driver seat. I'm getting used to the smell of hot sound deadener! :twisted:

    I really like the Coupe 626.
    And it being a RX626 now, is just so cool.
