1986 Mazda RX-7 with a Turbo Audi V6

Liam Griffin is building his 1986 Mazda RX-7 into a fun daily-driver for the summer using a combination of Audi and Ford parts. Liam originally planned to use a 13B-REW two-rotor however a deal on a twin-turbocharged 2.7 V6 from an Audi S4 B5 was too good to decline. The V6 will feature a single Garrett 3076R turbocharger, AEM Infinity 506 ECU with an AEM CD-7 digital dash, and O1E six-speed transmission. The engine sits on modified Jeep mounts and modified RX-7 subframe with a manual steering rack. Power will be sent to the rear wheels through a Ford 8.8-inch rear end currently being built by Ronin Speedworks.

    The guy will have to ditch the rear Ford end or to have 6 reverse and one forward gear.
    The Audi gearbox has opposite turning of the output shaft.
    Either change the gearbox or change the rear diff to Audi one.
    Been there, seen that…
