Just out of curiosity how much did he quote you, im trying to get an idea on how much it would cost to get a rebuild or deciding if i should just try it myself.

FYI. Rotor Sport in Santa Clara seems to have shut down. No idea if it's permanent or temporary.

Paul Elenga moved to Oregon, and probably retired.

Consolidating what's been said in this thread in the past few years, we have.....:

PR Motorsports in Hayward (serviced my s5 twice this year so far)
Rick's Rotary in Pleasanton
Sakebomb Garage in Santa Clara
Evil Genius, John Pagle in West Sacramento; plan on waiting a couple months
Haag Performance in Sacramento; plan on waiting, Miatas take priority

Ivan -- mixed reviews & you need to be referred by a friend
Geoff Roark on facebook -- seems to be unavailable at the moment

haven't seen much feedback on the following, but worth a shot if they're close to you
Bridgeway Auto Repair in Sausalito
Pro Inspections in SSF
Werkshop SF, ask for Stan
The Shop San Bruno - Auto Repair and Performance

Mr. Mazda in Campbell is winding down rotary work(?)
Larson's Rotary in Antioch, website is down
Don Walker at Autos Unlimited seems to be gone; good riddance

Air Conditioning -- if you bring your own R12, Ron at San Leandro Radiator will charge/diagnose/fix your A/C. If you don't have R12, there is eBay or maybe I have some lying around. Very nice guy. Been going there for years.

Motorsport Techniques, Hayward
Treds, Hayward; been there recently
Walt's Danville Service, San Ramon
corner-weights -- I don't know anybody
mysteriously, Roger Kraus in Castro Valley has an empty alignment rack and no techs

Dyno Services
-- you run the computer, they run the dyno and may advise you on fuel & spark adjustments
Newtech Performance, Hayward -- been there twice this year
Tech3 in San Jose
Nextgen Auto Sport, Hayward
GST Motorsports, Hayward
FETEC Motorsports, Hayward
Rob's Auto machine, Hayward
Gasoline Dreamz, Hayward

Compression Test. I have a Twisted Rotors compression tester with printer. If you're in Hayward, you can hit me up.

I would also recommend Rotech Auto Salon located in Arcadia. The owner, Nelson ****, is all sorts of Mazda certified, owns just about every rotary, and has been working on them for over 20 years.
