Question Interesting engine swap idea

Has anybody ever thought about swapping a Mazda rotary engine into a Riot? My mechanic neighbor thought it might be an interesting option because of the RPM range and weight of the engine itself.

Re: Interesting engine swap idea

I think that would be a very costly set up due to mounting and wiring, but why an car engine?

Re: Interesting engine swap idea

That's funny. an engineer at work suggested the same thing to me. CVT drive might be an issue and the hp is not worth all the work when you can go z1 cheaper and easier. I scratched the idea myself.

I've often thought of putting a Honda Goldwing Box 6 engine in one, gearbox and all so you get reverse out of the deal. They routinely go over 300,000 miles and haul loads up to 1600 pounds!
