「The RE Amemiya Tuned FD3S of a Japanese Car Loving American! 」From the Japanese Tuning Car Mecca of… TEXAS?!
A Full Complete RE Amemiya FD3S Making Waves in the US!
An American fan of Pure 90’s Japanese Tuning
“I got addicted to JDM cars when I was a high school student”, says the owner, Davis. “Before the days of YouTube, I was ordering BEST MOTORING, V-OPT and HOT VERSION videos online. Through my love of Japanese tuning, I came to respect such figures as Amemiya, Top Secret’s Smokey Nagata and racing driver Nobuteru Taniguchi. ”
“There are great cars and drivers all over the world, but there’s something truly special about Japanese tuning culture. There are so many outstanding and timeless approaches to tuning cars” he says passionately about “hashiriya” culture.
“I want to convey the appeal of true JDM tuning culture to the young generation of American car lovers!” Davis says.
His favorite machine is the RE Amemiya tuned RX-7. North American RE Amemiya official distributor Shinku Classics imports authentic RE Amemiya machines and can further modify them according to your preferences.
This RX-7 is powered by a fully rebuilt 13B-REW overseen entirely by RE Amemiya. It remains as a geniune side port engine with an emphasis on durability and reliability. The air cleaner incorporates a TRUST intake and the intercooler increases the core size by 1.5 times while still maintaining the original mount and position. Other upgraded areas include that of the fuel system and ignition system.
Exhaust layout has been setup to connect with an HKS downpipe and RE Amemiya Dolphin Tail muffler. Tail end cover, GT wing and diffuser are all RE Amemiya original parts.
The plate affixed in the engine bay proves its a true and complete RE Amemiya product.
Front bumper is also of course RE Amemiya. This is the Fascia N102 model that incorporates a specially designed under sweep and canards. Headlights are an integrated type with a duct installed on the drivers side. The exterior finished in full time attack spec by RE Amemiya.
After the widebody AD-GT kit was installed, increasing the width by 20mm each side, 17-inch Enkei PF07’s were fitted. Tires are Advan Neova AD08R (F235/45, R255/40). An sports type air suspension has been introduced for ease of street driving. VIAIR’s 440C compressor has been installed at the rear gate.
An RE Amemiya D-Cut steering wheel is installed as well as a shift knob extension by LIKEWISE. TRUST Sirius gauges are integrated on the dash.
“Next I’d like to install a roll cage and possibly a custom bumper by Auto Garage TBK. My ultimate goal is for it to become an RE Amemiya tuning monster. I would like to do something like launch the American version of ‘Mid Night’ and be a key member.” says Davis who knows the history of Japanese street tuning in detail. Where all that knowledge came from is still a mystery to us, but his passion is 100% genuine. Along with this complete RE Amemiya tuned RX-7, Davis’ mission will continue.
