Ahhh, would have rathered the 20BT sooooo bad.. :( don't love the V8, I'll be honest. Looks and sounds like a Commodore.

Doesn't seem Japanese anymore. :( but I hadn't seen it, thanks for sharing!

Hopefully this URL works, this is the 20BT FC. So good, one of the coolest cars I've seen, I think.

Hahah, the Dyno run sounds awesome, I imagine it would sound ridiculous in person.

I don't understand why you would take a 20BT out, for a V8..

Yes, it did sound awesome at the track. Used to watch Dave at the Ballarat 1/8th Mile drags.

Reliable big HP 20BT = Dollars cubed (heavy, power to weight - meh, intermediate plate no longer available, e shaft flex, e shaft factory lobe
machining/timing shyte, finding people who really know their shit about rotaries in regional areas is impossible)

Reliable V8TT = Every man and his dog could almost work on it and you can find most of the parts over the counter or at a wreckers - even
somewhere like Taswegia! :lol:

What you have to realise with a 20BT is, to do it right is going to cost MEGA bux - $15K and up. Leaving it stock will still cost between $6K-$8K.

Don't get me wrong, I still love and miss my 20BTT Cosmo. When I had a bad day, and my Cosmo would actually start, hearing the engine run
made the world a better place! Driving the car, the feel, the smell, the sound and watching people's reaction to it was a bonus! :D

Yeah, fair enough. But it seems off to go to the effort of putting a 20B in, then take it out again. From scratch, a V8 would be much cheaper and easier, but if you've already dropped the rotary in..

Yep, everything down here has a bloody LS1 in it. Except the VE SSs that I work on for a living, they have LS2s.. Barely any rotaries on Tas. Bucket loads of Skylines, but only a handful with big power, done properly.

20BTT Cosmo! Sounds very interesting.
