69 2 Door 13b Turbo

Post by sixstring4as » 15 Oct 2020 17:16

I originally built this while in college, and did a lot things that need to be fixed or updated. I had it in storage for 10 years while I moved to Seattle and waited for a place with a Garage. The first rotary I put in was a 13b 6port NA from an 84 GSLSE. When I brought the car up to Seattle I found out the motor was no good, and it was time to figure out a replacement. The choices were SR20, CA18 or another 13b. I choose the 13b because of the sound and that they have a habit of shooting flames. This time a 4 port turbo build from a 91 Turbo 2. I had to move the motor forward a little from its original position. Mostly to accommodate the larger transmission, and I will be redoing the firewall and transmission tunnel to suit the difference placement. I'd love comments, questions and recommendations. after its all dry fitted, the motor will be ported, balanced and rebuilt.

Same motor with a Holly

After I brought it up to Seattle the rebuild process began. It started with the Rx7

The awesome guys at JBC lent me their mock-up cross member for fitting the motor and mounts.

Waiting for parts I mounted one of my carbon door panels built by the late Dave Pare

Oil pan mockup for clearance that was sent out with the engine mounts to Built to Apex to be 3d scanned and have billet versions made. I should have them back in a few weeks

Crank trigger installation

New fuel injectors ID 1050x primaries and ID 2000 Secondaries

Ripping out the wiring getting prepped for the Tilton pedal box and the Haltech

The turbo is in the house. Spoiler it doesnt fit like everything else (but I knew that which is why I went for the tubular manifold instead of the cast version)
Image
Image

90mm GM drive by wire throttle boy for the big turbo.
Image
Image

Fuel pump install to keep up with all that air and big injectors. It's all e85 compatible.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

And because the turbo hit the water inlet, the installation of the electric water pump and side mount alternator. And a turbo oil pressure regulator.
Image
Image

Thats where the project is now (time lapse from the last year), hopefully this weekend I can start on the mounting the pedal box.

Looks awesome. The rotary motors are super cool and have such a crazy sound at full song.
