mazda rx-7 engine

im soon buying my first car a 1986 mazda rx-7 with a motor that doesnt work for $400, since the engine wont work i figured i might as well get a factory rebuilt 1989-1992 engine because it has more hp. Would this work? What is a good price for the engine?

Look at the rebuilt engines from Pineapple Racing. Stock and mild street port engines are relatively cheap, and come with warranties. Good basic upgrade for a project car, and the rotaries are easy to swap in and out.

Also, check with the forums at RX7club.com, as a LOT of people have replaced engines there...
