a 600hp 20b would lighten it up and maybe improve weight distribution. But a 600hp 20b would be sweet in any car.

Im not so sure that a 20b is lighter than a SBC, or a small block ford. I've yet to compare...... though I bet it could go either way.

A 13B turbo engine (complete) would weigh slightly less than a SBC and a lot more than a 2.8 V6.

20B would weigh more than a small-block and less than a big-block.

I am planning on doing a rotary swapped 69 with an fd style suspension and fiberglass panels to save weight. then again mine is going to be a track car...a complete cuatom build not just a swap...but v8 **** swap their shitty engines into our cars and justify it why cant we swap our engines into their "legendary muscle cars" and justify it? Im going to. because I wanna see the v8 fanbpys cringe when they hear the brap brap instead of the sound of inefficiency come from under the hood...or the whine of a 3 rotor with a rather large turbo on it...itll be an expensive build but totally worth it and very unique in the end...

Man you brought a 9 year old thread back from the dead. But yeah I agree with you. If they want to basterdize our cars with v8's, back at em.

Someone already beat you too it though. https://www.rx7club.com/old-school-other-rotary-63/1974-13b-re-nova-727207/

OK I registered just to set this straight, 13 years later just because when I Googled "20b rotary camaro" and this is what I got.

First off, the camaro is a TERRIBLE platform. There's a reason so many more fox mustangs hit the strip every weekend than third gen camaros. The same job that takes 45 minutes in a fox takes 2 hours on a tg.

Case in point, in yanking the 305 from my rs, we had TO FABRICATE a CUSTOM WRENCH for ONE bolt which ate TWO days, and lots of trial and error

The engine bay is TIGHT, almost ALL simple jobs suck, and it BEGS for a smaller engine.

I can't in good conscience run the same v6 in my performance touring car as I do in my trooper 4x4, so what are the options?

When we came up w the 20b idea, it was like a moment of genius. A t5 can wayyy take n/a rotary torque, and a nice n/a build could net 275-300 HP, very comparable to even the stoutest V8's of 1988. And at a very Ferrari like engine speed!

The slim 3 rotor seems perfect to solve at least the underhood issues inherent in the cars design. The rest of the car stays as poorly engineered as ever however, and u gotta love the car or something (eg just be a dork like me)

In the end it'd be a very comfortable tourer for two, with a GIANT luggage space, good handling, and a retro sporty thing that's kinda cool if it looks showroom stock. It'd also be be great to drive.
