Sweet, rotary, looks like the non-turbo? What kind of power does it make? What are your plans, sorry to hear about your Probe!

Yea it's non-turbo. It makes about 146HP.....not as much as I'd like but is has more than enough torque to make me happy. Plus the 4.10 rear end spices things up.

She'll corner like a ***** too!!!

What all does it take to get it up to turbo-spec, and also what kind of power did the turbo model make? What kind of torque are you getting? Sounds much like the power on the 3.0L, 140-145hp, and 160-165tq!

What are your plans? Just to keep it clean it drive it?

Alright!

I've got two first gens, but one was free and is now a parts car. GSL-SE 13B Rotory 135Hp loves to rev.

Not the best picture, but



I don't like stripes on cars, but it came that way. The car is shown with Blizzaks mounted on second set of factory rims so it's sitting a little higher than normal.
