    Where in NSW are you?

    Mike at Rotorsport - Ingleburn, used to race an RX5 street sedan, back in the day.
    His first RX5 was Phil Alexanders. Mike built the weber fed, extend port 13B for my RX5,
    and I helped him convert it from an auto to a manual.

    Here's some pics of his RX5 race cars - mid 80s:

    It certainly made the RX2,3 & 4 brigade stand up and pay attention, especially when it
    started beating them all at Amaroo and Oran Park.

    Get the piston running. And leave it as it is. Over time it will be worth more as a genuine car than a converted rotary.
    For the cost of the conversion If your patient and wait you may be able to buy a genuine RX5 for around the cost of the conversion.
    It won't be perfect but will be genuine and you will need to look hard and be patient.

    DO NOT CONVERT IT.

    If you really want to go rotary, go buy an RX-7. It'll be faster, more comfortable, handle better and cheaper in the long run.

    TRUST ME.

    You will need not just an engine so you better look for Halfcut to do full transfer with all parts available for you. At least its what i planing to do to get S5 RX7 or newer
