If you want high revs strait up to 9,000 rpm, build up the internals. If you want more power, look into a supercharger or turbocharger kit, or quite possibly a custom build. Those will be much cheaper and more practical and reliable than formulating brackets, placement, transmission, ECU, and cooling solutions for a new engine.
Yeah right , but a rotary engine is a rotary engine and no other engine is that sweet to drive...The sound is amazing, it is a pure engine for any sport car. I cant agree when you said it is heavy weight. I removed mine twice and if I would be a little stronger and taller I could have moved the engine myself once it was out of the car. The problem is the fuel economy and I think that it is a lot lot more reliable now with the new renesis engine from the RX-8 than it was on my 3rd gen...
Anyway, in the best world. it would be really cool to see a Lotus elise or exige go like hell with a rotary sound and why not with a turbo an a nice BOV sounds. hahahaha I can imagine what it would look like! BBRRRRAAAPPPPPPPPP !! TTTSSSSSSHHHHH!!!
