Man its been a while since ive posted. Been too busy with the 7.

Good news

Well, got the microtech installed, the Garrett m43 is on with my manifold, got a 3.5" exhaust from the turbo to a dual 2.5" y pipe. It ran kinda funny, never got a chance to really tune it.

Bad news

Only one rotor has compression now. Started it up yesterday for Rotaryman88 and another friend. It was about 20 outside so it took a while. It finally started and didn't idle, like normal for my car. Then it sounded really crazy. Like it had no power, I tried to rev it and nothing, so i let go of the gas and it just died. Wouldn't start after that. I checked it all today and no compression on the front rotor.

I'll post some pics in the morning in the daylight.

I am really sorry to hear that man. I hope it fuels the fire to go bigger Besides, it is not a blown engine. It is an excuse to rebuild it!
