First off, you apparently failed to gather the sarcastic overtone in my previous message, but regardless, you have to see the humor in the fact that you stated "if only you had used these parts, your engine would have been fine". I've been in this scene quite a while, and much as I would assume you have, I've seen the latest thing that will solve all the problems come and go, over and over.
I never stated the engine died because it was a rotary. I was tongue in cheek commenting on the fact that there is always another "fix" for the engine. Do you know what you fix on an LS1 to make it withstand 450-500 RWHP? The level of gas in the tank.
I still think an N/A 3 or 4 rotor is one of the best road race engines ever to exist. They just flat out take abuse, and are very well suited to that purpose. Turbocharging an engine that is so heavily sensitive to detonation will never sit well with me, but kudos to those that do and enjoy the challenge.
Don't mistake some playful joking for meaning that I dislike rotaries, and don't assume that simply because I don't build them that I'm not mechanically capable of it.
FWIW, this entire thread is mostly harmless bantering back and forth, which is why I leave it to exist here instead of deleting it. As long as it stays that way, it will stay unlocked.
