Don't expect to make big HP with it, if you used a 6/71 you'd see much better results. Id put a wanted ad up in parts trader if I was you, there have been a few of the setups floating around over the last couple of yrs.

They look like they'd be nice, but dunno if they would actually fit in a RHD RX with clutch and brake masters in the way.

I thought about that, probably why a lot of people downunder run'em in the centre

That's a nice example.

^^thats 6/71
4/71 are harder to find, costs a bit to set up but nothing beats the sound of a blown rotary
And after previously owning one for many years i can honestly say id rather have a blower over turbo
Yes turbo has more HP gains, but how much can you actually use that power on the street?
A shame that the Aus laws are so tough on bonnet protusions
hardest part of the conversion is getting the snout made, the rest can usually be assembled or use parts from the V8 kits
Whatever you do Go injection -very hard to tune 'properly' with dizzy and carb

PS - the ladies LOVE it!!!!
