    Oiling problems?

    OK, so here's the story - maybe someone can shed some light:

    I've got an ITS S13. The car has always run high oil temps, so I've got an oil cooler installed in front of the radiator. I also had...

    And is rev limit also a consideration??

    I understand that the RX7 in general is low on torque. However, it can run up to some ungodly rev limit.

    So instead of making torque, you put a really...
