Noice. I noticed that no boostification was provided; should not be necessary.

If I stop drinking Sam Adams, and drink Natural Light instead, in 1,397,223,938 years I could afford an engine just like that!

I cannot fathom the rate at which that must consume fuel. If a 2 rotor gets 12mpg does that get 3?

I pity any 2 rotor that gets 12mpg! mine gets at least 13.5!

seriously that engine is awesome, but It looks a bit big to cram into a mazda. Isn't there some company that makes rotary boat engines? is it going into a dragster?

Any idea the amount of Mazda parts used vs. custom aftermarket? Wonder what the eccentric shaft cost to build, etc...

I remember seeing a picture of it on this board being test-fit into an RX-3...?

But does it make more torque than a stock S2000?

In reply to Will:

Probably. Rotaries make more torque than the uninformed think.

The company is P.P.R.E. based in NZ.

Yes they do 4 rotor boats that are insane

And from what i understand yes the 6 rotor is getting shoehorned in an RX-3 drag car
