13b for drifting? need some advice and help

So yeah guys i was thinking for a long time what engine would be great for my ae86 drift build
I'm a rotary enthusiast since i was a kid , so the 13b was one of the firts swap i tought was good to swap!
And now i really need help and allot of advice of people who have allot of experience whit these engines. I was thinking on a s5 or a s6 , i want to know wich of them would be better. I want to know what apex seal is the best to handle the high rpm on the drift session , i want to basically know everything every parts i need for the engine to be reliable and can handle the drift , cause i dont want to be breaking engine every season. i was thinking not more than like 350hp to the wheels i think that would be great for this lightweight body, btw it's on a budget!

So any advice anything i would be very appreciated with the help and advices for the engine to have good power,very reliable thxn

Based on your questions, it would be best you go to a reputable shop and have them build an engine for you. Then you can rely on their knowledge to reach your goals.

I would suggest sticking with an engine that actually makes good torque, and has a smoother power delivery. PLENTY of cheaper options available with more robust support.

Unless you have a rotary guru local to you, I would advise against trying this with a rotary.
If you do have a rotary guru local to you, I would advise you ask him all these questions.

At budget build being reliable as a track/drift car!!!
