Why does that look suspiciously like a front plate and intake manifold setup from a 13b?

Edit: I see the triangular filler cap.

******* rotards.

You better order like 10,000 apex seals. Also get apex seals for your apex seals.

You know what would really protect the apex seal you're going to blow? Pistons.
Good luck with build

It's ok, I'll still have my piston car. I'll have something to drive between 200k rotary rebuilds. :P

Ok I'm apologizing right now for this. But a guy I knew always joked about rotary's as being a wobbly triangle or a dorito. So I searched Doritos on google and got this:


You could apply it to Piston / Rotary. Same concept.

Goals:

Rear heavy miata
230whp
100k between rebuilds, including track days

Shouldn't be too hard.
