cncdoc Posted December 18, 2003 Share Posted December 18, 2003 I feel like I should look around as a person does when he enters a new house... Nice. I hope everyone remembers to use the new address when referring to old posts and articles, because they certainly don't work now... But that's not what I came to say.. I am now planted squarely in the rotary-engine-for-my-Cozy camp. I remembered my older brother had built up a few RX-7s and had amassed a good deal of usable info and technical goodies over the years and has the procedures for building up engines. So I got me a good core and I will start the rebuild when I get back from Ohio (2nd week in Jan) while Im waiting for stuff from AC Spruce.. I plan to use a moderate street porting, EFI and turbo (for noise reduction mainly and high alt boost) fabricate my own intake and exhaust manifolds and the rest of the stuff. I want to use Tracey's newest PSRU (C model) but I will have to wait for that anyway. I am going to collect as much data on intercoolers, engine coolant and oil cooling as possible. I may try to get a big Vortec cooler and pump cool air into the system and use cowl flaps for take off, but that's for now.. Any thoughts? I am pretty excited about going rotary, I turned down a very good deal on an I0-470 when I got the weight specs. I guess it would have not been so great on an aft-cg sensitive airframe. anyway, even so it was pretty anti-climactic after hearing about Burt's latest adventure! back to work....
