    he said he did it for reliability over the 13b, but i dont think turboing that much (545hp @26psi) on a stock block would make it more reliable, maybe if the motor was stock.....

    yeah dude, especially a boosted rotary- those apex seals are so prone to failure and when they go it pretty much means completely tearing the block apart to replace em

    RX7s are crappy cars with great engines. Why would anyone ditch that motor,and keep THAT body?

    The RX7 is a badass car because of its balance. Too many people out there get caught up in the HP game and completly miss the balance part of everything. The RX8 is the least powered in its class (S2000, EVO, STi, 350Z) but is near the top on the race track
