First start of rotary vw bug
First start of my cosmo 13b-re TT powered vw bug. It has the microtech lt10s w/ x4 box. As you can see from the video, there is a bunch of white smoke. Possible water line into manifold? Any ideas as to that smoke? UPDATE: The car has been long since fixed. I tore the engine apart and did a full rebuild. The problem was a stuck side seal and blown omp lines. Its completely fine fine now and running. The car is still a build and I will never be done with it. New things are still being added to the car today as of 1/23/14.





4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead
4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead. The Wankel engine was last seen in a production car in the Mazda RX-8, and currently there are no rotary engines in production. Mazda may bring it back in the RX Vision, however there are many disadvantages to the rotary engine which has kept it from being successful. Rotary engines have a low thermal efficiency as a result of a long combustion chamber and unburnt fuel making it to the Exhaust. They also have problems with rotor sealing as a result of uneven temperatures in the combustion chamber since combustion only occurs in one portion of the engine. Oil consumption is also a problem, as oil is injected to add lubrication and help keep the rotor sealed. Finally, emissions are poor and fuel economy is terrible, and ultimately this is the cause of it’s death.

This is the first run of my 13b rotary powered 64' bug on Megasquirt2 EFI using the stock (modified) CAS (crank angle sensor). The CAS has been modified by removing a tooth (180 deg on each side) making it a 12:1 type missing tooth.
