Any particular reason you replaced the rotary with the 350? What type of racing do you do? I used to have an Opel GT that I always wanted to convert to rotary. There was a guy in town that built them for autocross, and if memory serves he got them up to around 240hp, and the redline on rotaries is awesome. Anywho, nice cars!

rotaries arent my type of thing, hard to tune, hard to get reliable. for instance the 90hp rotary in my car blew up (lost an apex seal) so i replaced it with a 425hp american monster... :D (btw small block chevys are cheap, rotaries are not even close to cheap) and its basically a drag car...used to auto x it when i had the 5 speed in it, since then ive put in an automatic and converted it all to drag...i hope to build another one with a ford 2.3 litre turbo powerplant for auto x :D
