Your a FREAK! Very nice build!!!! I used to own one with a 13B St-port with Weber 48 IDA. I was all over the pavement. I know your going to be all over the block with that 3 rotor with that 4.6 diff. That is SICK!!!!

thanks for the compliments, she was fun to drive before, i cant wait to drive her now. as mentioned before i am a bit nervous about the BP...but its too late now. it is what it is...if i dont like it, i can always take it apart and do it over again.....but not before i drive her around for a good bit.

got a small update to report.

The front cross member has been boxed for rigidity and that the new center cross member has also been welded in lieu of having a mechanical connection. I thought the welded connection would be much stronger and not have a chance to come loose with prolonged vibrations.

Looks good man! A Repu will be my next, and most likely last, rotary vehicle until they come out with a new one!

Ok so the motor mounts are done and the motor and tranny are finally secured to the REPU and in their final position. As stated before the oil pan had to be modified. Took a GSLSE oil pan and mated it to the 20B oil pan.







The shifter hole is also complete and now resides approximately 4” further back the original location

Simon,
I am glad to see the work on the repu and to see a NA 3 rotor going in her like I had planned when I owned it. I was gonna use the automatic trans as I was afraid the T2 trans would not hold the torque.
Anyhow I really do miss this truck but again the color, motor, wheels, everything you have done is what I could have done! Maybe one day my dream repu can happen.....

If I ever do win the lottery and build one it will be a 4 door cab, white with a 3 rotor.

keep up the good work.

Attached is some old pics

Some progress to report…not much progress but some. Hopefully next week, I can get the truck back, mock everything up and send out the parts to power coating. Had a 3 to one collector made for the exhaust. Due to the REPU crossmember I thought it would be better to have it made flat rather than the typical stacked collectors.





Also made some progress on the intake manifold. The ITB’s will sit at approximately 30 degree angle.





As I have more progress I will update the thread, for now this is all I have.

I am super interested to see how the sideport N/A 20b does with ITB's. Would love to build a street friendly NA 20b one day.

Header is done all the way to the collector. Came out better than expected. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Exhaust should be done today.
