I do apologise for the bad language and I’ll wash my mouth out immediately . I’d love a7 engine  in one but they are so pricey . When I bought the first Greddy kit I had an option of the 7 engine . I was told steer clear it’s a money pit .......
That all are , Hindsight eh ......

Having owned and run a Small Block Chevy in my truck, you can easily spend the same amount of money at a decent V8 compared to the 7 engines on Racing Beat Europe site.

I don't want to speak out of turn because I haven't driven a rotary, but what ive heard it seems that the power delivery between the 2 will be poles apart.

Its just instant go....... flat torque curves.... the torque was addictive but it was "lazy" redlining at 4500....
Its just Rotors and GRP

My SBC was only mild tune around 325hp and around 360 ftlbs

the worst thing about them is the sheer weight, I think one of those would upset the handling and balance of the car dramatically.
Its just Rotors and GRP
