    If you think about it though, try measuring a 2L piston engine the same way and you will only get 1L. So although Mazda calls it a 1.3L as that is its capacity when equated to swept volume you efectively need to double it to compare to a piston engine.

    i would preffer rotary 13BT as well, just beacuse the motor is lighter that original 18R-C or the 1G-GTE, meaning less weight more speed..

    but then again what is the purpose of this conversion simple transplant daily driver or the track..???

    if daily driver got the 1G-gte
    if track go the 13B-T

    rotories are only reliable if tuned properly and on every service..
