Rotary? Good luck. Please post up your build as u go.

I for see another dead engine swap thread :(

A lot of people talk about a swap but rarely anyone does them. Only epic swap I have seen a thread successfully complete was the 4age swap.

and don't forget labor prices are totally insane. I forgot what he paid for labor, but it wouldn't buy a tune up in the US if I remember correctly.

Growing up in the 70s, there was the old maxim: "with enough money, you can put any engine in any car." Of course, a tube framed Chevette with a blown 454 BB Chevy was not a very practical or economical car...

You probably can do a rotary; there was an issue of Super Street or one of those tuner car magazines that had an article about someone's Scion XB with a 2JZGTE. The rotary is much smaller/shorter so I am sure it can be done... Of course, how much money do you have and are willing to spend???
