Summit Racing is good. Do you have on near you?

Do you want to stick to rotary or convert to piston engines?

would a 13bt or 20bt be better for an rx-8?

are their alot of cars with rotary engines or is it really only mazda's?

are rotaries better than pistons?

depends on the person bout the rotor vs. piston argument, i prefer a rotor.. mainly cause they rev out to X's

and i'm not to sure about other cars coming STANDARD with a rotor, i'm fairly sure it's only mazda... i seem to remember that the rotary was pilot'd with a Mazda Cosmo 110S with the 10A engine.

There are other makes of cars that have rotaries, and a rotary is better because you can run a high RPM :2cents:

But lacks the torque and reliability of a piston engine. Also fuel consumption is greater. Also it's almost impossible to increase the displacement of a rotary engine.

Just add more rotors. :smoke: 787B anyone? 2.6L 4 rotor. Sounds like a Heavy Machine gun to me.

I'm pretty sure Mazda is the only make that uses rotary engines, if not I wanna hear some examples. Rotaries are also a pain to start in the winter time and have very steep torque curves.

Greddy i'm pretty sure is making a turbo kit for the RX-8 :smoke:

you can make honda engines rev really high too ive seen a couple round indy revving to 10500 rpm....and rotaries have a tendency to not last very long

true... have you ever seen a se3p with a honda engine though..? i think that'd be a large waste... i mean.. c'mon.. why would you put something like an f20c in an se3p..? unless someone can come up with a perfectly good reason i'm gonna be completely against the idea of honda in mazda.

pistons are better in my opinion
