Upon close inspection of the pistons the 2 that were down on compression had little cracks. Turns out they were more then just cracks on one of them, the rings were holding chunks of piston from the cylinder wall.

On track to have the motor pulled by monday.

The whole front suspension and drivetrain will get laid down and then pulled out the front, you can see where the radiator support was cut out. The new radiator will need a different support further out anyways to make room for the turbos

Bought a dead, rusty, $200 79 rx7 for my latest project. All the electronics are "good". It turns over just won't start, most likely due to the gas tank sitting inside the car.
