ford capri , rotary powered ?

Ignition on a 12 A is a dizzy and twin coils.  Not sure on a 13b EGI out of the car but you can run them on a distributor system.

Power potential on the motors is immense, a Ported 13b on an IDA carb could make 300 bhp, sounds immense too.

Apparently putting details of your car spec in your signature means the nice folks on exile-rotorsport think you\'re a fool.  I can think of no higher compliment!

12A\'s actually started with the RX-2 and 13B\'s the RX-4. An RX-4/5 13B is a very good engine, but getting hard to find these days.
 
12AT is also a good option but I\'m guessing for your buget you\'ll be looking at a pre 1985 RX-7 12A on a Nikki carb. Try and get the series 3 12A if you can as it has larger centre plate inlet ports (tall port we call em)
 
Give the guys on exile-rotorsport.com a shout as they\'re a club dedicated to the older Rotary engines and conversions. They also sell engines within the club for a lot cheaper than some of the ebay chancers.
 
Good luck with the project.
