i now have the bridgeport motor rebuilt and back into the teal rx8 and the supercharged one in the white rx8 i am loving life but my wallet is empty hahahahaha put some new coils into the white one last night now just waiting on the exhaust shop so i can get the intercooler put on and the other oil cooler hooked up i may even put some fans behind the just to keep it cool so on a track day it stays nice and cool in there
having the blitz supercharger is a bit like it being turbo it kicks in at about 4000 rpm and boy having some forced induction you can feel the difference it really gets moving from 4000-8000 rpm cant wait for the eastern creek track day :)

Looking forward to seeing the new supercharged rotary at the meet next month.
Are you planning on putting it on the dyno to check the power increase?
"The ingenious and decidedly weird Wankel rotary engine works by using internal combustion to bounce a fat metal triangle around inside a hollow metal kidney bean, which hula-hoops around a central shaft to generate power"
