Part 12: 13B Rotary Engine Rebuild - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration
Just as I promised last episode, it is finally time to build the engine!
Part 12 of my RX-5 Cosmo restoration covers the entire process of building
the 6 port 13B Mazda rotary engine. While this engine is a hybrid of GSL-SE
RX-7 and Cosmo parts, the process is the same for any rotary from a 12A to
a 13B NA, 13B turbo, 13B-REW or any
other variant of the 13B. This video shows the whole process of the engine
build, starting from measuring the rotors and covering everything else
including clearancing the side seals, assembling the rotors, complete
assembly the short block, setting the eccentric shaft end play and
installing the front cover and everything underneath it. It's probably the
most complete engine build video outside of what you can buy from the
vendors, and as such, is an hour long. After this one, I'm going back to
videos under 20 minutes. But for now, grab a beverage of your choice, sit
back, and enjoy.
What its like owning a 3 Rotor 20B RX-7
I have one of the most amazing custom RX-7s in the world. I want to share
my experience of owning and driving such a unique car.
I explain where the engine came from, why its so special, and what it does
to a Mazda RX-7
2004 Mazda RX-8 1.3L Rotary Engine Start Up, Quick Tour & Rev With Exhaust View - 84K (7500RPM Rev)
2004 Mazda RX-8
The RX-8 has a 1.3L Wankel Rotary Engine which makes an impressive 197 HP
while paired to a lame 4 speed auto.
When it comes to an RX-8 of this year, best opting for one with a 6MT which
also the engine is tuned to deliver an additional 41 HP (238 HP total)
Its impressive that an engine of this displacement can deliver so much
power. But these rotary engines are by no means fuel efficient. MPG's are
comparable & sometimes worse to that of a V8. Interior is a weebit cramped,
few mechanics out there specialize in repairing these engines if it ever
needs servicing, & overall reliability of the RX-8 hasnt been great. I
would much rather go for the much simpler MX-5 IMO.

Meet the first model year of Mazda's rotary powered sports car, with a
feathery curb weight, perfect 50/50 weight distribution, and RWD it was
everything that a sports car should be. Unfortunately, it also had some of
the compromises and quirks of your typical sports car.

Cold Start 2004 Mazda RX-8 with Short Tour, and Test Drive
A friend of mine let me make a cold start video of his 2004 Mazda RX-8. I
give a few stats in the video, but to go in a little more depth. It's a
1.3L Renesis dual rotor engine "rotary" very tiny engine putting out 238 horsepower and 159 lb
ft torque. I also give a short tour, show the engine and details, and we
take it for a drive. I get some cool shots inside, and some drive bys.
Also an Exhaust/revving clip at the
end. I know I had a lot of requests to do one of these cars. An full, in
depth review/tour will come later on. Enjoy!

Mazda RX-8 Video Review
This is a Top Gear-style review of a Mazda RX-8
I'm a passionate person, I'm passionate about cars, and after a long
history of either excruciatingly boring or terrible cars, last year I
bought a car I'm genuinely passionate about: my 2005 Mazda RX-8. Having
lusted after it since its arrival in 2004, this truly was a dream car that
I can finally call my own.
Inspired by my obsession with Top Gear (the original UK version), my
excitement for my car prompted me to make a video review of it.
Many great thanks to Andrew James and Lorie Rogerson for helping me produce
the film, and to Fred Sherman Lee for lending us the truck that would serve
as a leading car for all the footage!!!!
