will a 80's rx7 engine fit in a 77' repu?

i was mistaken, its not a 74 its a 77. does this change anything? and another quistion for people who live in California- are the 77's exempt from smog? thanks

you gotta watch the oil pan, it can't hit the crossmember. and everyone i talk to say to use the repu front cover.

i have heard of 12a's being put in repus but you're obviously missing out on hp and torque. you'd be much better off putting a proper 4 port 13b back in there. it CAN be done. if you autocross twice a year you can get mazda parts at COST, including motor parts. ergo a +new+ block can be purchased for around $1000!!!!!

this friday i talked to a friend's wife who works at the dmv and she said she was read an offical dmv memo saying it'll be a 29 year smog exemption in california, therefore the 74's will be exempt next year (2003). yippie@$! this hasn't been publicly released yet.
