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! :D

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

Nice build.

For the guys who aren't on AR, here's a link to a little vid I took of my car with my Ipod
gaffer taped to the rear bumper bar, a few weeks back. This is the countryside I live in,
awesome for driving!!!! :D

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

17 x 7" rims with +20mm offset.
I've fitted 205/40 x 17 tyres because of their similar sizing to the original 13" wheels.

Original 185/70 x 13 tyres:
Rolling Radius = 294.6mm
Circumference = 1851.03mm
Diameter = 589.2mm

205/40 x 17 tyres:
Rolling Radius = 297.9mm
Circumference = 1871.76mm
Diameter = 595.8mm

The bridgy sounds nice, what parts did you use for the brakes?

Hi, looking really nice. I was wondering what brake rotors you used for your upgrade and did you have to modify them in any way? Also, what master cylinder are you using.
I need to upgrade the brakes on my s2 626.

The rotors were custom made. I'm checking to see if the guys who originally made them, can do it again.
Master cylinder is standard 626 - no problems working the brakes at all.
