Almost blew up the 3 rotor on the dyno. Learned alot using used parts.
The next video we max out the turbo on the dyno. I just want to share the real challenges of using used parts on a performance build. its making me a better builder and tuner.

    Jus got to say man all u seem to do is go round in circles maybe this is why u love rotaries. All you do is talk and seem to spin spanners on these videos do you not like actual driving of these cars, how bout some actual action instead of 1st and little bit of second down ur little alley. You have this massive turbo but never use it what's with this. Cant you at least do some street driving and drive to some street events or some thing similar instead of talking all the time the odd crap dyno run and mayb a crap 1st and bit of second in your alley

    ICE cars are dinosaurs going to extension, especially when you see the latest Kia EV6 GT trashing all super cars on a drag race. Still, nothing beats the noise, roughness and rawness if a ICE So yes ICE cars and becoming an endangered species but they'll never go instinct

    Well done, for such a project and power definitely needs all of it. Are you gonna have oil level sensor, oil pressure sensor and oil temperature sensor?. Those are which will indicate on right time if something is wrong and save engine.

    Hey Dahm, I need some help trying to figure out how I can adjust my ignition timing on my standalone. How do you configure the base ignition numbers and is it just knock detection from there forward?

    I've got some videography tips for you. Unless you start filming or releasing in 60fps, please refrain from doing the slow sweeping camera shots. It hurts my eyes looking at this with all those jagged frames!

    might be a dumb question but... why not just remake the oil pan if it's all hamburger'd? seems like it would easy enough to figure out what the bolt hole pattern is and just fab a new flat lip for it and weld it onto the tub. just split it along the fillet of the old flange.

    Open Wheel Rotary Car = Formula Mazda. Spec Series open wheel class with sealed 13B motors. Has been around for a long time. Big selling point was that the sealed rotaries could last 2-3 seasons without a rebuild while making the same power.
