I jump in the driver seat and finally tune my own car on the dyno. What a wonderful experience. Tons of information to share next. This is using a stock 13B, Garrett GTX3584RS and #adaptronic M2000 ecu

Is it just me or is this an evolution of the corvette? A smaller engine with less mass, less weight, and lower weight distribution with less vibration than the stock engine and still makes the same power. I don't know how forced induction affects the classing for SCCA and other similar events but this could be the beginning of a new life for this chassis.

I bet the exhaust hitting the wall is affecting your tune and the actual performance!

Mr. Amemiya would be proud, lol. Can't wait to see your cars do some racing. Are you going to bring the AWD 4 rotor to the Tokyo auto salon and show her off? It's in the beginning of the year isn't it... Got plenty of time 😉. they would probably flip over the Vette too.

Christ on a pogo, that is a good day's work right there. I love that you're really getting into doing all aspects of building a car, including the tuning. Although I suppose you have to if you want to be the next rotary guru! As always, thank you for sharing this with us, it feels like half fanboying/fangirling and half being an apprentice. You are definitely lowering the bar for others to consider owning a rotary, which is a great thing. Not to mention demystifying the whole "rotaries are super unreliable" myth. Clearly they can take a beating when they're built right, and the world needs to know that! :)

So, Rob... I though you said, "No check engine lights" in a previous video. So why is there a 'check engine' light (among others), and why does the tachometer not work? Looks like there's still some work to do. I'm also a bit worried about the wastegate venting into the hood. Might want to dump that downward, under the car.

Rob, I've made a serious mistake... I decided to sell my baby and now I'm feeling completely lost and irresponsible. I know it was just my baby and not a rotary in any way shape or form but it still hurts so bad! She never did wrong by me and I've abandoned her, please Damn what can I do to fix this?! BTW my baby is a jzx100

Awesome work. I think I could beat you with my MG if you had NA carb. I only have mechanical advance in the distributor and we eat the road on our trips. Check the videos on my IRpost page. I'll make one covering the car for you and Rob Golden (Pineapple Racing). Great job man!!

Rob when I first started watching you I really didn't like you, but now I see your passion and how excited you get about your craft. I've now learned to like you. I say this because I wish my girlfriend had the same enthusiasm about me as you do rotary engines.

SydneyACE پیش 4 ماه
Awesome achievement to be sure! With the reduction in weight and the added horsepower this Vette is going to be a lot faster than a stock Z06! I imagine there will be a trade-off in drivability due to the fact that the torque doesn't really surpass that of the V8 until 4,000rpms or so... but for something that's not a daily driver, that's probably a justifiable trade-off. Hopefully Rob will give us some feedback in that regard. Great work sir!!

I remember hearing something along the lines that it would make more torque at the same rpm range as the ls6🤔
Jim Daniel
Jim Daniel پیش 4 ماه
The two rotor sounds positively anemic after hearing the 4 rotor for a while. Really, I suggest putting some BIG ASS mufflers on it. WTF came out of the wastegate? Feathers? What happens if you don't jerk it out (of gear) when it comes?

Its a good tune for how that waste gate is sounding, Im not that familliar with rotary's and I guess that's how it sounds with low gate pressure. sure is making some numbers. More fuel, Less timing more boost!

Rob you have the intercooler blocking the air that should go to the radiator. Come one Rob you should know this.

This has been my personal experience with my fd when I ran a fmic. I live in FL and I had to switch to vmic due to engine temps getting to high. Then again I am on pump gas. Your build is coming along well Rob. Brap on brother
Rob Dahm
Rob Dahm پیش 4 ماه
Incorrect. It’s actually not even close enough. So many people drill that into your head and are completely wrong. My coolant temps were under 140. Lol too low. And my intercooler is too hot. I could have used the radiator fan to pull air from the ic even. So many people feed the audience hearsay. About to blow people’s minds.
xekret پیش 4 ماه
Since the 13B is boosted how about comparing it to a boosted LS6?

If you're gonna use 3 13b intakes for your 6-rotor it would probably be more responsive cause of 3 smaller throttle body's.
Datsrboi پیش 4 ماه
Hey Rob is it just me or is your rear wheel vibrating badly?
Holzwurm _HD
Holzwurm _HD پیش 4 ماه
Please use 2 20b intake manifolds for your 6 rotor. I bet it'd look amazing. Edit: Or use 3 2 rotor manifolds, would probably look even cooler.
