Sweet! I know the reputation of Coleman rotary motors. That will be a nice setup for sure. Are you going to run a premix of any kind? When we built my friends R1 he chose Pineapple Racing to build his motor. He too went with 3mm NRS seals. With a GT35R kit , Power FC, Turbosmart WG, Apexi FMIC/Exhaust he made 368rwhp at 10 psi on RX7.com's dyno. We were quite shocked.

Please be sure to get a video of startup. I love to hear a Wankel lope like it has a cam.

advans are sweet.....but I like the rota's too. If they're good enough for Driftworks 700whp s15...i'm pretty sure they'll be just fine one my 450whp car.

Update:

Started planning for the 4" exhaust routing... Gonna be toite like a tiger...but it'll fit. It's hard to see but i have about a quarter inch of clearance on the LIM side. After wrapping the Down Pipe...it'll most likely be a 16th if that away from the LIM.. so we may kick it over a little more depending..

Then realized that my tire would be running into my thermostat blockfor my oil coolers if I left it in it's previous location.. so I decided to re-do one of the lines..the one coming from the front cover and lay the block sideways instead of flat against the frame. The bracket is a simple piece of flat steel bent using the air bender. going to slot the mounting holes for a little adjustability and clean up the metal to make it a little prettier but it's strong, clears the tires even when I get my PBM modded angle knuckles.
Before
After


Then realized my Oil filler neck needed to be modded slightly for the -6AN fitting for the oil catch can...so I cut the old weiner looking slip on and grinded it down a little. Drilled a new nice hole where it needed to be... And bj welded the steel -6AN fitting on there and filled the other hole in.


I'll post more pics of how I'm going to route the line later when I make it =-) I really wanted the Clear line that all the sweet Japs use.. but believe it or not it's a little difficult to find... anyone know a place i could order it from?


After that me and Johnny decided to make the -16AN Coolant lines... I forgot what brand I used.. i'll have to look at it again..but it was expensive...but well worth it.. was a breeze to make..

lower radiator out to motor line


upper into radiator line. Decided just to loop it all the way around to make way for the fans and the ducting work. Dont want to have to cut a huge hole in the ducting to make way for such a small line.

more routing


Going to use some nice mounts to secure them a little bit and some zip ties to tie them together so they won't move around but this is pretty much where they'll end up! More updates soon....stay tuned! tidying up little tid-bits and working on bash bar today!

So Everyday I try to get at least one thing done to ensure the forward motion of the project. Eventually it'll be completed....but with these projects....they're really never completely complete hah.

So!!..Small update:

cut the down-pipe and realized i'll need another 90 degree piece to bend down and go into the straight under the car.

added some straight just to get as far as we could before we need to "90" and cut it.

and had johnny tack my cannon plug bulkhead for my rywire quick disconnect onto the fire-wall. Going to cut some more gold and nicely cover the edges so it looks a little cleaner, but you get the idea. Going to need some fire-sleeve over the harness to keep her from getting insinerated haha

and all set up

I'm thinking I'll run my boost control solenoid through one of the ac line holes.

^ your correct.. Believe it or not i'm actually a High-school teacher.. well substitute that got asked to stay the whole semester while the teacher is out on recovery. I teach freshman biology and junior/senior Forensics. I Like it quite a bit. But it's funny..I heard a quote from Ken Robinson about how our education system is failing that said something along the lines of "Students who just spent the last 4/5 years getting their bachelors degree are now returning home after graduation to mush their brains with video games." And I totally believe it... Teaching is the only job i've ever gotten because I had a degree...Everyother one was because I knew someone... kinda bs haha.

^hahaha..yea My lady has all my attention for sure... she's pretty rad..and damn attractive anyways! Plus not into the whole stay young cradle robbing thing.

Anyways!!Little update:

as promised here is a picture of the almost complete manifold. And my almost complete I mean we need to do a little blending on the turbo flange side. Note the length of the runners! Thermal expansion =win! very excited what this combined with my long runner UIM will do as far as hp/tq ratio! If everything works out i'll have one hell of a useable powerband =-)


Bought some Skateboard "shorty's Doh-Doh's truck bushings and shaved them down a little bit for my radiator mounts.. Came out good! I may look for some sweet colored ones down the line but these do the job well. I used the softest bushings I could find as they were pretty stiff but after cutting them I think they'll provide just the right amount of support. Used a little washer just to disperse the load and whaaalaah!




Then I decided to clean up the front end in prep for my Bash bar. Cut some loose ends smoothed it out with the grinder. Then cut some plates and welded them together. Utilizing scrap metal and puting it to use because I'm cheap and metal is expensive haha and today i'll be doing the mounts for them.
Before

After.....did the same to each side

4x4 plates cut and welded

whey they will be mounted


Thats all for now.. more updates....hopefully a lot more this weekend!

Hey thanks a lot!!

Little Update:
I cant remember but here is a picture of the manifold 99% done. If i could do it again I'd chagne a couple things. I'd make the transition flow a little more through the 90 degree bends straight out of the motor. And I'm still uncertain if i'm going to run the synapse gates. I may sell them and go with a couple Tial MVR's... we'll see.

Drilled out the bolts holes for the Bolt on Bash Bar. THis way if it gets jacked up I can just make a new one and bolt it on

Drilled out the holes for the wastegate. Was going to use the porting tool to smooth out the inside but Bj said he wants to do it haha...

EGT bung holes drilled. Forgot to take a pic of the finished products..but you guys know bj and how he welds so i'll leave it up to the imagination

Found some spare alum pipe laying around... so decided to use it to make a catch can. Bj put it on the lathe to clean it up

and johnny cut some alum for the top and bottom

and 2x -6 AN bungs for the inlets. Going to route one to the oil filler neck and the other one to the back Iron on the passenger side. Still need a little breather and a "view." i'll find something for those later on.


More updates this week! stay tuned!!
