Looks VERY tidy. Have to say I personally detest that body kit tho :P

We\'ve got the (now black) RE-A wide arched Cosmo that Brian imported a few years ago at ours again atm. Altho its a fair bit different these days! Its just one of the coolest looking motors about - well Cosmos are generally :D Add the rather large T88 on it now - yum!

What size turbo has this one got Jit? 20Bs spool turbos very well!

Lovely car Jit,:Thumbs-up Any chance of some interior pics please? Those rears are huge, look like pirelli? I\'d like to know a bit more about Cosmo\'s, especially 20b powered. are they all auto? How does performance compare to an FD? 0-60?
cheers Bob

Cheers for the positive comments guys!

Blitz - got no idea at the moment. Gonna have a looskie today when the rain clears up for a bit! Not expecting much though...maybe a reflashed stock ECU or something knowing the japanese!

Hudson - :D You wanna buy the rear arches for ur car lol!

Freddy - dont worry dude....first sunny day i get im gonna hit her with the car wosh and G3! :D Shes gonna look truly stunning then...wheels im not 100% keen on....looking into possibly selling the wheels and getting some image ones made up....either that or polish the outers and centres on them to a mirror shine! Ill keep you updated on how it goes for sure!

Rich - not sure how big the turbo is tbh. Its the same turbo that that black car youve got now came into the country with (TD07) which according to rx7club is suposedly small for a 20b.... need to find out more specs on it first tbh so I can decide what needs to go on it!

Hamc - oh yes....she will definitely be at rotorstock...right next to my old Blue FD hopefully! :D

bob - Will get some taken once ive tidied it up a bit! They are all factory autos with around 300hp -330hp (depending on what source you read!) standard! The rears are 335/35/17....not cheap i imagine! I think whn the time comes to replace them, ill downsize slightly....maybe down to 300 or something!

Looks like a funky ol\' thing, dude. Jason told me you\'d got a mad Cosmo in the offing, but I didn\'t realise quite how mad! Bodykit\'s got a bit of everything, hasn\'t it, Audi front end, NSX side vents, GTO rear. Surprisingly, it all seems to work well together, though, looks great! Loving the rear tyres, looks like a road roller from behind :Laugh!

What\'s the mpg like? About ten? eight? :Thumbs-up

ooh i just worked out the MPG...not too bad really....filled up the tank and marked out where the marker was before i filled up. Did about 210 miles to get home and used about 58l of fuel (well i put in 60l and it didnt quite use all the 60l) so that would be atleast 16mpg crusing which im pretty damn chuffed with :D

Looks lovely Jit, looks almost identical to mine except two very interesting solenoids(?) in that engine bay of yours!

Some Engine bay shots for those who asked :D

Ok here goes. Engine bay needs a hell of a lot of tidying up IMO...not happy with the red colour scheme. Thinking i might get the plenum, IC pipes etc mirror polished....any thoughts on that?  

OK...Engine Bay:

Trust TD07:

Random lol:

The holy grail of Mazda Rotaries:



And some interior shots. Not so keen on the interior design myself...but it is super comfortable with electric everything!









And finally some more shots of the car...
