In the last update, I shared the cooling system and a short video showing the car running. In order to prepare for the first street tuning session, I needed to get the car roadworthy. This meant that I needed to find a way to mount the battery, finish the intake/exhaust and figure out the gauges.
LS Swap FC RX-7 – Battery Tray
Something that is always a challenge when doing a swap is finding a spot for the battery. Many LSX-swapped FC RX-7 owners end up mounting the battery inside of the car. While this was an option, I needed to make sure that the car would easily pass tech inspection and I didn’t have lot of money leftover to buy an expensive battery. I wanted to use a common off-the-shelf battery that could still be replaced at any store that sold batteries. I had heard great things about Odyssey batteries, but finding a replacement locally if they go bad can be difficult.
