Sweet! The position of the bulge (oo-err!) and the exhaust exit look perfect for a Rotary to me! You know you want to.....

Hey I have a Chevron, still scratching my head as to what running gear to put in it! I live in West Auckland. The engine bay is tiny.

Hmmm yes have considered a rotary and that would be mint but are they not a lot of work with seals and needing rebuilds all the time?

Yes I would be interested to see how you have squeezed that in there! I have a CA18DET sitting next to it in the garage but it’s a long setup with the std gearbox! Flick me a txt and we could arrange something. 021724643. I am a little crazy busy so don’t get much time on it :cry:

A properly built rotary is super reliable. Mazda offered 75,000 mile warranties on them in the 70's once the initial issues were sorted. Problems are mainly caused by muppets who don't treat them properly and think they can be revved to the moon and back. A strange question but does your chassis no start KRW?
