And the emissions, lack of low-end torque, and general unavailability of mechanics familiar with them.

"And now on to something even ruder... Wankel rotary engine".

Rotors are for brakes, not engines.

I was always under the impression that rotors ran a bit cleaner, and definaely more efficently than an otto-style 4 stroke reciprocal engine???

#6, if you poke around on the forums there's some stuff about trying to get RX-7s to pass emmisions

#6, As far as power efficiency goes, I'd say that 220+ HP per NA liter is pretty efficient, as far as fuel economy goes... well thats is different.

#8, hp per liter...those three words are the basis of almost any ricers argument about how 200 hp is the shiznit because its "110 hp/L"

#8, its not the same "liter" as it is in a normal V-type engine, so that statement is off...i heard that you would need to double or triple the number to get the real "liter" that you could compare to any car

#10, How is it not the same? HP per cc of displacement. Yes it is a different type of engine, and is a bit like comparing apples to oranges when it come to conventional piston engines, but when it comes down to raw displacement by swept rotor volume, its the same thing.
