This is my work in progress 1982 rx7 gsl with a diesel engine out of a 1984 mazda b2200.
I had the truck for a long time and rust finally destroyed the frame to a point where It was no longer road worthy.
The engine still ran fine and the rx7 was sitting in my yard engine-less at the time.
The truck originally came NA so I figured I would try it that way first. 59hp 100ft/lbs is really slow. The turbo is off a 1985 mercedes 300d and now running about 15psi
I have about 8000 miles on the swap now, average about 38 mpg highway mid 30s in the city

How's the performance??? Glad to see you saved what otherwise would have ended up at the junkyard and managed to keep mostly Mazda.

Its alright, 0-60 is about 10 seconds which is reasonable for a diesel, especially compared to the truck which was about 18.
I enjoy it though
