With all this talk about rotary-powered 1200s, I thought it was about time somebody put a Nissan engine in a Mazda.

I reckon the A15 would be better than the A14 since the RX-7 weighs so much (2300-3000 lbs), and the extra torque would help. This swap would eliminate forever the dreaded Mazda rotary engine carbon lock.

I don't really see it being a viable option for this engine...........unless.........It is possible to buy a 3/4 size RX7 body shell- fibreglass-.....lots of drag racers use them in South American countries. Then it might be viable for a curcuit racing car or other small motorsport vehicle.

I think the A10 would be just fine. Mabe an A12 if you are getting all crazy. But an A14?!?!? That's just too far...

why bother when you already have a car built around a great engine? not be be undatsunlike but its true .. you have a great performance potential with either the 12A or 13B wether you decide to go turbo or NA .. I love the sound of a healthy rotor.

yo dattoman! good to have you aboard (this is Tom from the earlydatsun mailing list btw)
