My friend had a '78 and in about '82, he found a used front clip from a GSL-SE, with the engine and transmission. His was a GS and came with the 12A/4 speed transmission, so he made new mounts to allow installing the 13B/5 speed. Then, he lowered it, put in stiffer springs, added the spoiler/air dam, removed the EFI (sold those to Rotary Engineering) so he could install dual Weber side-draft carbs, did the needed body work and his brother painted it with Imron, in a Porche deep burgundy color. Pirelli P6 tires made it stick to the road really well.
He was parked outside of his dad's shop one day and a semi came to deliver something. Backed into one corner of the RX-7 and pushed it into the curb, with the direction of the force on the car being diagonal. Totaled the car and it broke the concrete curb.
