Got the engine, trans, radiator, etc pulled from the 7 finally. Other projects and my new jeep have been taking a lot of time away from the mazda sadly!

Not giving up on her, this quarter my schedule has completely prevented me from getting any work done on her. I NEED to have teh engine swap and suspension done and completely sorted by April though, driving her up to Tennessee for a show!

No progress. The previous owner hit me up, said he wanted the car back really badly, but that he couldn't get it until this month. So we made a deal and I sat on the car waiting. He backed out, so now I have to decide if I want to work on her again, or just sell her.

Finally got around to bringing the rotary home from my friends house. Hopefully this weekend I can pull the 626 trans to see how closely things line up between the two transmissions. I'm expecting that I'll need to halve both transmissions, put the front case from the 12A trans on the guts and back half of the 626 trans, and shorten the input shaft a bit. Though I haven't found anyone that used a 12A complete swap from a 79 US spec RX7, so I still hold a glimmer of hope that the shifter placement may be the same if not at least close to where the 626 shifter is. We'll just have to wait and see.
