The last 72 hours were the coolest moments of this journey so far. A simple mistake caused what appeared to be catastrophic damage. Enjoy the rollercoaster i was on for the last 3 days.

Apexes fucked, sad. It's losing pressure as hell, from what I hear, the engine doesn't run in all 4 rotors... sad situation. Hope you fix the problem.

Why not build a more manageable engine.. Four rotors is stout as it is.. Aside from the fact that you may have been sponsored by your turbo manufacturer (not speaking from facts, but guessing based on past videos.). 4 rotors and great tuning, the car should be much more manageable and different to the most other content out there. Just a thought anyway.

Been watching this build for so long and while it's still not quite there it has been the most fun build I have ever watched. It's his dream car down to EVERY last minute detail. Will be bitter sweet when he moves on the the 6 rotor but I'm sure it will never be 100% done with the build. He will continue to tweak and perfect it.

92 PSI is meant to be an "o.k." reading for a rotary engine but the aluminium shavings are a big worry in rotor number 4 so I'd do a compression test on the other 3 & compare the results. I've heard that there shouldn't be a variation that's any greater than 20 PSI between all of the rotor chambers but I've got a feeling that at least rotor number 4 and/or its chamber is screwed. I agree with Dylan Craig that the engine should be tuned in real time in a dyno tuning workshop,for such an expensive engine,I'd get it tuned on an engine dyno as there seems to be too much of a risk in stuffing up a $60k engine by driving it with basic tune to get it dyno tuned whilst the engine is bolted into the car !
