Its something that could certainly be done, but I prefer the rotary TT setup myself

i believe ChrisV has done it to a few cars, it could pay to write him a PM asking him a few question's.

I personally don't think it should be done, the rotary engine IMO is a work of art, but I've never seen a V powered former rotary live, it might not be a bad idea, yeah, if you want to do it, ChrisV would be your best bet
