As long as you have the cash funds and the time and the right tools, you can do anything pretty much, and if you dont have the tools or the time or the know how, plan on saving up alot of money

well they would have todo all the ecu wireing and other wireing plus make custom engine mounts and brackets, and if they use the just the engine make a adapter plate for the tranny, but if they use the honda tranny than they need to make a custom drive line, im not really sure how much it would cost, but i would say maybe like $8,000

I hope you are kidding...

One thing to remember... the Honda engine rotates the opposite direction of a rotary...

so that is a problem...

YAAAY!!! for spending more money to make something SLOWER!!!!

hmm.....I hope you are putting that fwd motor in a rwd car, just the sheer stupidity of that kind of swap....i can understand maybe a rwd motor in a rwd car....id rather have a rotary stay a rotary....but for your stupidity in even trying to swap a hUnda motor...........i hope you have the wrost time in your life trying to make it work....and if you do make it work than i will find it in my feeble uncomprehending mind to congradulate you on making it work... :thefinger

LOL anything is easy to break if you dont take care of it.....Rotaries are the same way...so no they arent easy to fuck up.....if you take care of them,... i dunno even know where to begin on how to explain it.. why dont you try doing some research about them and how to repair them rebuild them and learn......instead of taking the easy way out ....and i mean a honda motor'? come on? lol but i or anyone else here will be more than happy to help ya out...just ask questions.

FWD Rx-7,don't sink that low.The rotary engine is good,just needs some extra care in certain areas.Enjoy one of the greatest cars built,stick with the rotary.

Plus, if you're gonna do an engine swap, why put a stupid FWD 4 banger in there? If you're gonna waste your time and money, might as well put an LT1, LS1, or a ford V8 in there and kick some serious ass!

Why the fuck would you want to do that? When you can swap in a 20b for the same price?

The rotary engine can make way more power than the Vtec also the Vtec wieghs probably twice as much as the 13b thats in it. There are street RX7's running times damn near as fast as pure drag hondas so I am baffled as to why you would want to?

My suggestion is sell the Vtec for the 3k that its worth and buy a 20b or at least a 13b-RE engine from an FD.

i know its been said, but it needs to be said again, why would you even consider dramatically lowering your hp an increasing the weight by swapping a honda p.o.s. The rotary is gods own creation, sent down from heaven as a gift to all men (those smart enough to use it). The 20b swap is a great idea, or even a 13g (if you could actually find one). Im totally going for it next summer, when I buy my FD. Cylinders are shit compared to rotary.

I fail to see why you people never cease to logically answer these types of people.
I would much rather see those people tow their 72 Pinto up to a performance tuning shop and say "How much to put WRX EJ20 in here?"

First it's VTEC
Second, you would have known that if you had the motor on hand, since most VTEC engines say VTEC right on the valve cover.
Third, $3000 for the motor are you just plain stupid? For $3000 that better be a fully built, turbocharged, B18C5 (Integra Type-R) motor with transmission and ECU.

I know this guy isn't even reading this post anymore, but it just pisses me off.

He should take his V-tech engine to be rebuilt at a boat shop so they could spin it backwards for him and save himself some cash in parts. He's going to have it rebuilt anyways.

If I rake in the cash this year I'm thinking about putting a 20B 13B in a Noble. What do you think it'd pull in the 1/4 Mile let alone the 0-60?

Does this put me in the Sik FUq catagory? Don't worry I'm not going to try to spin any 20B backwards.

1. It's VTEC (Variable Timing Electronic Control)
2. RX-7 = RWD, VTEC = FWD
3. RX-7 > Honda
4. RX-7 > Honda
5. RX-7 > Honda
6. RX-7 > Honda
7. RX-7 > Honda

Trust me...I drive a Civic Ex VTEC...RX-7's are my dream cars...you DON'T want a Honda engine in that beautiful machine...

And to the other guy who corrected him about VTEC...not all VTEC engines say 'VTEC' on the valve covers...I have a D16Z6 SOHC VTEC engine in my Civic and it just says Honda on it...only the B16+ say VTEC on them...

So yeah...you don't want a VTEC in ur RX-7 unless its at least a B18 or better...actually I changed my mind...YOU DO NOT WANT TO SWAP A VTEC IN THE RX-7

unless you've fucked up your head so much...

good swaps when you fuck up your wankel

1) 20B pwr
2) LS1 (domestic)
3) drop a supraTT in there

If you INSIST on Hon-duh pwr, i suggest
1) if it can fit, try a turbocharged NSX motor (i forgot the engine code C32 or somethin?)
2) or if you can't fit a NSX (highly unlikely if you can fit a supra eninge in there), try 16lbs of boost on a F20 S2000 motor.

anyway, go with the 20b. trust us.

keep it running on rotors, don't put in a LS1 or supra TT(2jz gte). the rotary engine is so much better, this should never even have been a question
