  1. Its doable ...but you will probably need a whole car to do it properly as a doner...I've spent years researching rotary engine swaps backwards and forwards..you will need two ecus...one for rotary and one for the mx5 so that all the guages work...or a stand alone programmable ecu...custom manifold probably ...some of the mx5 parts are interchangeable...The gearbox might fit..but the geometry will be off...so you would need adjustable coilovers..maybe w bump stop kit..definitely improved cooling ..The mx5 rad etc wont keep a rotary cool...upgraded fuel pump to cope with the added load...The rotary will fit but you probably need some custom mounts .. However i believe the subframe is very similar.....a lot of parts ..a lot of money...hence a donor car.. I was going to drop something into my rx8 other than the rotary but it turned out too expensive and will make the car handle like a bag of shit...mazda spend heaps of money and time trying to get the centre of gravity in those sports cars correct...jamming in a different engine will throw all that off.. Just have your eyes open.. I fixed my old rotary in the end Stuck a straight through on her.. One tenth of the price... Done deal is littered with half finished projects like that..people run out of steam Sent from my GT-I9195 using Irish Rotary mobile app
  2. New to the site..but not new to cars or rotarys... Have had a heap of cars..bmws..celicas.. 3 mazdas. A 98 323f 230 rx8 190 rx8. Absolutely love the rotary ...1st one stolen..got it back..wrecked..let it go. Ive rebuilt a 190 rx8..from the ground up..recently had its cat stolen..bas"*>÷s wrecked it..took the 02 sensors and the manifold..but rebuilt her again .with a straight through..no cels and she pulls like a mofo .i dont know if its my imagination but it feels quicker lower down than my old 230.. I was on rx8 club international..a lot of American tossers on it .. Anyway keep spinning ..ive jad the bug since 2007.. Would love something old..an rx3 or rx4..The old stuff is cool..Just sold an mgb...shouldnt have.. Anyway im here for the rotary chats and to see if anyone knows about my old 230 rx8..i think it got put back on the road. Black..red n black interior04d 64075..
