OMG......9k rpms.........what a thrill....to max out the stock EA82 tach and have your friends think your crazy.
9k if it's modified, if you rebuild it stock, 7.5k is about as high as you want to go, but still, it's really high.

I heard that they have to run two radiators though. One in the stock place and one inside the fender. Or something like that.

No way, man...
I heart torque!
you know a 13b in 4low range would still have lots of torque

very funny - after having to deal with a friend's RX-7 Turbo II, I NEVER WANT TO SEE A ROTARY ENGINE AGAIN!!
you'll need a high lift cam and titaninum valves for a rota conversion:lol:
Have you guys ever flooded one?? do you know what a PITA it is to "unflood" it (rotarys don't naturally "unflood" with time because the gas gets trapped in different sections divided by the rotors) - not to mention the FI system is absolutely crap - if you don't fully warm the car up before cutting it off, the ECU will flood the engine, they also have a "pulsation dampener" that does nothing, but can cause a massive gas leak if it breaks (which is common) - the redline for the Turbo II is also at 6k - an EA82 with a 6.5k redline could easily outrev it before the RX blew its apex seals - wayy to much trouble for me, I like my reciprocating pistons, and my torque
