I was Looking at a hot4s rotary special i had and there was a BMW drag car with a 26B in it. Now i wanted to know what the 26B came stock in or is it just a special 1 off or even limited edition engine?

The 26B didn't come stock in anything.The famous 787B is powered by a 26B also but it's none turbo.



You could have these engines made for you if you have alot of cash.

Check out http://www.autotechmotorsports.com/projects-4rotor.htm

This uses 12A parts.



And go to http://www.kiwi-re.com They sell Jeff Bruces E-shafts, you can get 3 and 4 rotor 13B stuff from them.

There was a guy locally here in Wa that created a 4-rotor by simply mating up two engines. I can't remember if it was 2 12a's or 2 13b's. He did not have a single e-shaft. It was kind of interesting.



He said that it took him 2 years to figure out how to mate the two engines.



The place was called granny's speed shop. They now do v8 swaps for 7's

I can get you every thing you need (not through kiwiRe) The place that makes the shafts and mods centre plates is just down the road from me . They also do the pp rota housings and rotor slotting.

Hey Nospig, does that shop make both 12A and 13B length 3/4 rotor shafts? And you have any idea on pricing?

Getting some rotors sloted in the next week or so i will get current prices. They do 12a and 13b 3 and 4 rotor shafts . 3rotor shafts can be had to take 20b extra iron but 4 rotor set ups require there centre plate mods so they fit staionary gears and you need there dowels and through bolts . I think they set it up with 7 extra dowels to give engine extra stiffness. Where are you freight could be quite steep.
