Rotaries are torque less, get a V8 if you want torque.

If you have a N/A turbo it or put a supercharger on there.

Assuming your injectors are clean, you should have all the torque you need. These cars do like revs, so if you are short-shifting it will feel like a dog. Keep the revs over 4k, and you should be grinning.

If you still need more torque, go buy a Dodge diesel truck.

son, its wrong to ask for torque when you have an rx-7. its just like asking to be stoned to death.

it's not that rotaries are weak in torque, it's that they aren't designed for it.



light motor + light car + high rev hp = fun sports car. If you want loads of torque in a car that you have to shift 3k rpm before redline get a mustang.
