Very cool! This is way more interesting than another C8 channel where they are trying to turbo a C8. I like seeing all of the interesting details you are finding.

Why ruin this car with a rotary a c5 vette costs alot more than a rotary and will make alot more power with a turbo on it.

Wait wasn't there a rotary corvette back in the day??? It was like a prototype. So Rob's finishing what chevy started.

Sir, that is not the correct coolant. That's G05 which is HOAT, you need to use OAT - in this case a "dexcool" compatible fluid. Also, the recommended mix is 40/60 for maximum cooling performance, although 50/50 is fine for non-track use. Also, once you get the vehicle put back together, keep in mind it can take a while to purge all the air. See below.

“Hood open Top speed:82 mph” why does it let you go 82 with your hood open? Is 83 too dangerous to have a hood open?

If you got a title "on accident", probably not a good idea to be posting a video stating so.

The rpm redline is cut because the c8 has a break in period of a few hundred miles, when you pass that set number, it unlocks the power and rpm

Only downside to the cage is it puts the Mavic Mini over 250 grams so it needs to be registered under part 107 of the FAA.

Think that was the wrong Coolant... no way GM doesn't call for DexCool! Don't want to mix that Green and Orange stuff. On the Temp, it is not uncommon for a GM to have an electronic thermostat that will open between 226 and 228f

It's nice to see the manufacturer has designed a car that seems to be much smarter than it's new owner. Imagine that the manufacturer won't sell parts to anyone that's not certified to do aluminum repairs. I guess they're worried that someone might try to fix a car improperly in a garage without the proper equipment. The car needs to be put on a frame machine then gauged analyzed and pulled to spec. before any new parts are bonded, mig, or Tig welded onto the car. Safety seems to be the reason they won't sell parts to a person that might not do repairs that are not factory certified. If you work on cars you should know how a thermostat works and why cars need a thermostat to operate properly.

More than likely the C8 has an auxiliary coolant electric pump that get activated at a certain RPM. On my V8 Mercedes the auxiliary pump comes on when I jab the accelerator to the wall for a moment. It allows me to burp the system.

For either car, look up the Chaparral 2J. The craziest thing is the 2nd engine that runs large fans in the rear to generate a ridiculous amount of downforce even at 0 mph.
kingofl337 پیش 3 ماه
IF you want to make the car right, with the four-rotor you should start figuring out the CANBUS while the motor is still in the car.

Also have you ever tried build a air to water intercooler that sits on top of the rotor engine. Other rotary guys have done it. But I believe you could do it better and with better styling flow and functionality... just wondering
Sed Hendo

Love what your doing. I would love to see you also and in the description. Website where people can purchase reasonably priced rotor engines. One of the main issues with the price of rotary engines is finding them. And finding them in good condition. If you want to help this power plant survive your going to have to share what you know, where you get it who you get it from and cost. Not trying to preach to you. Just hoping your the guy to open this up to all of us who want to get back into rotary power. But we only see the high end stuff.

Stradman had a C8 and vlogged about the red line in his car. It appeared to be more of a suggestion for engine break in. Not sure if there is more info out there about it, he did show that as soon as the car hit 501 miles on the odometer the red line changed instantly. I'm just loving the fact that you are working to get this car back in good working order first then modifying it.

Joe Maddox
Joe Maddox پیش 3 ماه I have found and saved the rarest Mazda FC RX7 ever made! Now this car is rare. Really rare! Let me break this down really quick... Ever heard of the rare 100 GTUs rx7s? Only 40 have ever been claimed and only 7 are confirmed at the time of this posting! Here are the rarest rx7 FC3S models: 1500 10AE Turbo models 1400 infini 1000 winning limited 150 final edition convertible 100 GTUs... out of that 100: 83 red on black 10 black on black 7 white on blue There was only 100 GTUs models created between 1989 and 1991. If you own one of these rare models sign your car up to the registry list here on any of the rotary forums!

You gotta get it over 500 miles and the redline will open up and I think you honestly get about 20 hp extra. Could be wrong about the hp number

Hey I just had a really great dumb idea called Operation F.A.R.T (Fiero And Rotory Turbo) for when you get to tackling the infamous Mazda Renesis Engine you should put it into a Pontiac Fiero with a turbo (this way the Fiero gets the turbo that never was and GM gets the mid engine Rotory Car that was almost and it could be the Rotory C8 smaller and arguably cooler older smaller younger less successful little sister) (cooler cause it has T tops) (older cuz the Fiero was made from 1984-1988) (smaller cuz it is a smaller car) (younger cause the Corvette name has been around longer) (less successful cause it’s no longer around) (little sister cause the it’s smaller than the C8 but they were made by Chevy’s sister company Pontiac) boom idea (in conclusion is it a good idea depends on who you ask if you ask me yes if you ask Corvette people no Fiero people can’t be asked cuz the Fiero is pretty much extinct unless your a crack dealer or plan on becoming one)
Snorkeldorph پیش 3 ماه
I'm sures it's been mentioned in at least one of the 739 previous comments but your C8 is in breakin mode until 500 miles on the odometer. Redline will increase from the current 3500 max.
