Yeah, the taillights do look quite similar to Series 4 RX7 rear lights.

awesome dude, I'm a good fan of the Etude interior seeing my BF has most of it you should also change the rear bumper to a low-drop facelift one, I have one if your close to auckland. I need a pre-facelift one seeing the facelift one doesn't look right on my car

Took a video to show you how weird the speedo is at 80+kph and how it pauses.
So is it just a sticky speedo cable?

Seeing as you have one of the few Etude's left in the world I thought i'd share everyone a pic of my 87 Etude.
It was a 1.6 DOHC EFI 5 speed.
In its day it was a very nice car and much better specified than the 323's

Good luck with the engine conversion.
