Blown triple rotor ... ?

One of the guys in the Northland club had a 13B Chevette rally car - went pretty well - just the driver slowing it down - but it made that horrible rotary noise.

horrible rotary noise...how dare you! :(

I admit i do much prefer the sound of an eight anyday but the sound of a hardcore rotary can be music- very loud music- but such a hard sound when at full revs..check this....

this second one sounds ill but it must be so highly tuned...not one for the shopping run...or is it? :D

You're providing further support for my view :lol:
A well built, hard working, high rev'ing four beats any rotisserie - sound wise, at least!

What you need to do is tune and love the little 1256...

...at least until you can find something like a smashed Skyline, and drop the turbocharged six into the huge engine bay!

this ford crossflow i'm into viva is slotting in nicely! I think they would be great in chevettes as not much heavier and bigger- still oldschool enough to look just right in the bay too!

I know a few have been fitted before so maybe....

......but the way the little 1256 is sooooo cheap to run is great! :D
