I think I need to be shopping for a new 13BT motor.

In the learned opinion of you sage and worldly rotorheads, where is the BEST place to buy a quality rebuilt motor?

depends on what you are looking for as far as a motor, you could check with Ito and see if he can fit you into his busy schedule. as far as just a stock rebuild, go with the mazda reman, at least you get a warranty

I just want it all. Good durable engine with warranty that will put 350HP to the ground for less than round trip airfare to Vegas.

Obviously just kidding. Car's intended purpose is embarrassing V-8's at the strip.

you can always try atkins... www.atkinsrotary.com if you get a street use engine they give you a 24month warranty. i got a replacement from them and it has been excellent and without problems for the past 40k that i've put on it. that ran me about 1800 and they want your core returned.... they also do performance engines and race only setups that aren't too far off but you lose the mileage warranty and the 24 months. plus their price on porting is the cheapest that i've seen for any builder to have.

I'm leaning toward Atkins right now. I can't remember ever hearing anything bad about them.



Anyone have experience with Revolution Rotary?

Yours are friendly?



When my engine goes, Ill be going to Kevin Landers or Brian Cain. I dont know of any warranties they offer ( if any ) but I know they both do some quality work.
