Part 7: My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration - Intake and Exhaust Porting
Has it been nearly a month since my last episode? Wow, time does indeed
fly. I've been quite busy preparing to build the engine. So in part 7, I
cover the intake and Exhaust porting.
The engine is being built with GSL-SE 6 port plates and the Cosmo rotor
housings as the basis for a 6 port turbo
setup. This port job is fairly conservative, only opening up the primary
ports a little and bringing the Exhaust ports close to 2nd gen RX-7 specs. The
goal is to maintain fuel economy, low and midrange torque, and idle
quality. This episode covers everything involved in porting including:
marking out the new ports, grinding the port shape, smoothing the bowls,
smoothing port to runner transitions, smoothing the runners, grinding and
blending the Exhaust ports.
12 Rotor Engine Running- Different Angles
Watch the last part of the video where there is a glass of water on the
engine. The engine runs so smooth it does not even ripple the water.
Looking at the glass on the back, you are seeing the reflection of the Exhaust tubes bouncing on the flat
surface of the water. The water actually does not even have a ripple.

IDIOT WITH TOO MUCH HORSEPOWER!!!
sry haters, i can't hear you over the sound of me crashing into family cars
while i'm busy fakeing my speedo :-)
the speedo shows a little bit too much speed because of the shorter
real top speed at 13.500 RPM (removed limiter) is 291 kph.
all speeds are in KPH, NOT MPH!

Racing Bonneville On a $300 Craigslist Motorcycle - /RideApart
"You don't have to spend a million bucks to fulfill your dreams. I bought a
bike for $300, got it running and entered it in a race I'd always dreampt
Bonneville is an epic thing that brings out all kinds of speed contraptions
and it was an honor to ride an old 1986 Honda VFR750 in the
Run-Whatcha-Brung class and pretend to be like my childhood heroes.
If I can do it, anyone can." — Jamie Robinson
