Engine rotor, of course. Mazdatrix will balance a rotating ass'y for 190 + shipping but I'm exploring other options. https://www.nopistons.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png

Where do you go to get a rotor balanced after you do a few things to it with a dremel?

I doubt it'll happen. He's selling the car and giving up on NA RX-7's in general from what I understand.



I will be partially doing the same (other than the selling part), once I have a...

O yeah, PP 13b with 9.7:1 rotors. Muahahahaha, the ultimate NA two rotor. I expect to hear about ur mid 13 passes at the dragstrip with that thing installed in one of ur FCs.

The paxton centrifugal kit had no intercooling and ran 7ish psi. I've seen a few web sites with stock port FC NA's using the paxton kit and mild exhaust mods (header and highflow cat) dynoing...

Lol, that's a drawthrough carb camden roots setup, which is totally inferior to a throttled, intercooled twin screw and efi setup. They look similar, but there are three types of superchargers and...

I would rather fab in a whipple twin screw compressor onto the REW block than mess around with the LS1. An autorotor, whipple, or lysholm will make the wankel drive like a V8, but keep the rotary...

Yes it will get a "little" louder but not by much. I swapped my na sleeves for some TII sleeves when I did my rebuild and street port (S4 NA). I also ground my exhaust port down a couple...

Oops, I forgot to mention that. My first run was 15.0 @ 95 and the Gtech reported 14.9 @ 98, so with my FC which has slightly stiffer suspension (Tokico HP shocks and Eibach springs) and its lighter...

It's kind of an occasional commuter car, and it still gets about 26 mpg at 75 on the freeway, and about 21 mixed city / highway, so I don't have any plans to do a PP, but if I was building a motor...

I don't see why this car couldn't hit 12's with another 100 hp to the wheels. I'm probably only putting down 140ish right now. It weighs about 2350 lbs. empty, with a quarter tank of gas. I'd...
