Um, why the biggest?

To be technical...they make 6mm apex seals for larger C & D sized rotors...but those aren't for us, lol...

well id recoment the rotary aviation seals, if its a turbo engine. i have heard they are quite strong and resist detonation very well.. on the flip side they wear housings faster because they are harder... its kind of like a trade off, but id rather have my motor wear out faster rather than detonate and blow up.

thats what i plan to use on the motor im building in a few months. also the RA seals are the cheapest on the market.

being local to the NW i actually would NOT recomend atkins rotary seals, a few people i know have had some problems with the seals breaking even on NA aplications, so i question the quality of them, as well as the customer service was terrible.

if going with a NA id probably recomend mazda oem 2 peice seals as they work just fine in Na applications wehre detonation is very unlikly.
