tuning is the key, the rotary combustion process is fragile as it is, high power motors are 25% motor, 75% tuning. Adding a minimally controlled fuel source to a rotary is asking for the big bang...



Not saying that you cannot use it, but the rotary does well with a turbo as it is.

You can boost all day long on a turbo.

What about the concern of the sudden cooling the nitrous brings may lead to premature apex seal failure(can you call it premature or just, yeah it happened today instead of tomorrow? ) anyway, back to what I was saying. Hasn't it been suggested that that is the biggest problem with spraying on a rotary>
