I'm new to the rotary world and loving it.

I recently Aquired a 91 Auto RX7 from a friend for $200. Slight front bodydamage and the engine seals are going out. I went to a pic-and-pull and found 2 91s with everything under the hood. When I saw them I didn't know what i was looking for (turbo, trans, ect). But the Engines looked like they were in ok condition (massive rearend damage to both cars). Can I take 3 13B engines and make a 4 rotor engine?

Why not a 6 rotor? If you're going to dream, dream big! Smile Seriously, that's not a realistic thought. It could be done my a clever machinist who could graft the two eccentric shafts together, but there's still a lot more to it. It has been done. We've got a 4-rotor in the shop made from two 2-rotor. But they are not common by a long shot, because it is quite a challenge. They are also very heavy.
