But its a rotary, I'm contractually obligated to make a complete lack of torque joke.

Less talk about motors that don't suck, and more talk about spending lots of time and dollars in order to remove a mediocre motor...

...in favor of swapping in another mediocre motor.

Ive given up defending rotaries on this forum.
They have become infamous because they have been in the hands of boy racers so decades. If youre going to go race on a basemap or band-aids with no wideband and zero understanding of tuning theory, you should not own one. They cant take bad tuning, and unfortunately, out on the street, most tuning is bad tuning.

The torque thing is totally laughable. Thats the same argument made by domestic **** who dont understand the basic physics behind torque, power, and work. Which is what makes it hilarious that the NHRA super stock record has been set by "torqueless" turbo s2000, and the NHRA F/Dragster record is held by an even more torqueless NA F20C powered dragster.

Way cooler than original subject, and totally bone-a-ble, unlike OP. Great post Dann!

I thought we covered how much rotaries suck in the "should I buy an FD RX-7" thread?

It would be cool if someone had ~100 years and a few trillion dollars to throw at rotary development like we got for piston-engine development. But until then, I will take a modern piston engines that outperform them in every way.

This thread! It went from bad to good to bad to really weird. I predict it will turn gay by the next page.

I would like to input my opinion after blazing my own trail and making and engine fit into a miata that no one else had done before and in this case very few have done. I would like to add just a few things. One if I could go back and start over I would put an LS V8 in my car hands down. Two make sure you pick an engine that you know a good bit about. Most of my time was spent figuring out dumb things that someone familiar with the engine may have already known. I would not suggest doing a swap that no one or few have done souly for the fact that it will take much much much longer than you could ever imagine and you may get frustrated and never finish. That is just my two cents. At the same time I love my car now and would not change it for the world it is cool to pull up to shows knowing 100% that you are gonna be the only miata with that swap something different from the norm.

Nah I don't think you understand Sean, OP is an 18-year-old pro mechanic. Any swap he dreams up will be a piece of cake.

After that thread I'm considering an F2T swapped B2200 for a winter car.

So I hope nothing is wrong with you.

Acquire 4wd B2600. Swap in F2, or just boost G6. Unstoppable trophy truck hoonmobile status.

I don't know what the **** that is, but we speak english on this forum.

Congrats on having a good job at 18, but maybe a bit of extra schooling wouldn't have hurt.


And no, none of us would attempt an SR20 swap because we aren't angry 18-year-old children.
