Like I said before I love the rotary but I am ready for a new project that is almost complete and something different. Hopefully around tax time I will have everything up and running for the strip and now SoloII.

Keep the rotary spirit alive. Get a 20b turboed engine that would be bad a**.

Even still, take some pictures if you decide to go with the ls1 swap.

its funny how this same topic is in every car forum.
i love my rx7 with ls1. it has better weight distribution than my friends stock rx7 but weighs only 15 lbs more (it would been more but i removed ac and ps and abs - although abs is back in now). i autocross a lot, and i beat every rx7 fd that has been there. my friend races his stock fd with scca at the nationals, and i beat him. and he loves my car, as do all the rotary guys that i give a ride too. so it handles insane and is fast as hell too.

videos - right click, save as.
from last week, drag racing at atco:
http://209.177.55.37/video/atco102306.wmv

autocross and weighing the car on corner scales:
http://209.177.55.37/video/AX.wmv

hpde/road race at pocono with stock suspension (now has coilovers):
http://209.177.55.37/video/poclong_0002.wmv









my car is 50.5% front, 49.5% rear, 2730 lbs total.
my friends stock rx7 is 53% front, 47 rear, 2715 total.
my engine is old design 370 LS1 stroker, tiny cam, 398 hp, 410 tq.

Wow, I know I am bringing an old thread back from the dead but I have never heard so much mis-information and ignorance from some people in my life.

I am not bashing the rotary faithful who want to keep the engines they came with but some of you are pulling numbers and engineering principals out of your collective rears. This seems like a very good case of "if you dont know what you are talking about, shaddup."

Rotaries are amazing motors, if you know what your doing you can go very fast. I have friends with both v8 and rotary...the one thing i love about a v8 rx7 or any smaller import is the fact of its reliablity...a mild bolt on ls1 will go deep into the 11s if not 10s in a rex. Its alot of blood sweat and tears into a rotary.... both will break, but rotarys should have hour meters not odometers.more power to who ever but on a go fast cheap, reliablity stand point....beat the crap out of it and drive grandma to the food store.

NOPSTNS- Na, dont think you were a part of the nonsense in there

I have no problem with rotaries what so ever. I think they are great motors too but I just dont think that there is enough development behind them yet to make a turbo rotary a good OEM option on a car. The point I was making was that it is people who blindly make up facts or repeat drivel that they heard from someone else who doesnt know what they are talking about that annoys me. This is for both rotaries and ls1 swaps.

Anyway

/Rant

If anyone wants to see what the differences are between LS1 7's and Rotary 7, a couple of us FD owners (rotary and ls1) are starting to have get togethers at Giant's Stadium for auto-x's. Come out and judge for yourself.

Was a thread created in 2005 really necessary to bump up?

lets bring this back up lol. lets start from the top
-a ls1 swap does not kill the weight balance. the ls1 is surprisingly light being all aluminum.
-300+hp/300+tq whats not too love
-rotary-16/22 mpg ls1-20+/25+mpg
-turbo vs instantaneous torque
-ls1 is more reliable as long as the swap was good
-easy power upgrade. throw some head and cams at it and you get around 100 hp/100tq
