That looks like a beast and a half! Really impressive there. I'm always amazed at the small size of the rotary engines too.

Yeah when you think of the power they can kick out when tuned properly its pretty amazing really.

Well, few changes on this during the week. I have shortened the inlet manifold pipes by 3" to kick the power band higher up the rev range suit the porting mods a little better. This, as with most things, has ment a couple of changes else where in the exhaust side. The merge collector on the system has to be moved from the current 32" length right back to 92". So the join will be right by the back axel when it collects from 2 to 1. Also due to the MASSIVE volume of the N/A rotary there are now 3 silencers on the system. 2 small boxs in the middle then one large one at the rear with a custom tip pointed down at the ground. I'm waiting on some more v-bands to turn up so i can start building.

Rough idea knocked up of the header section

That is some impressive metalwork going into that exhaust system! Pretty envious that you have the time, skill and tools to do all that work!

Good job and can't wait to see (and hear!) the car once it's back in one piece. 8-)
