Big job mate!
Are you rebuilding the block at all? If the turbo's were destroyed, the bits are going to go into the engine, which will most certainly damage the internals. And it's no secret how delicate the wankel is!! The last tihng you need is the casing being scratched and damaged as the rotary turns with bits of turbo in there! Evil or Very Mad

^wont it depend on which rotor has broken, if its th exhaust side he should be fine (unlike whatever was behind at the time).

I have to say your making some fast progress on this, inspirational

It was all collected in the inlet port of the fmic thankfully, unlike the outlet rotor that was wedged into precat and covered in burnt oil.
I've opened the inlet and found nothing, the engine was rebuilt a few thou ago by re-worx.
Reason why im getting my arse in gear is that i want it at Jae even if the paintwork isnt ready.

Right, everythings in and ready but with only one small hitch.
The immobalisers broke and wont turn off, the car started once for 20 seconds to let the fluids do their stuff but after that the alarm wont play ball.
So tomorrow i have someone coming to remove the bitch and i can start running the engine in. were so miffed! Evil or Very Mad

Still prefer my advans though, Alarm guys coming later today to remove the POS ai606.

Got the engine fired up and running after changing the jammed starter motor, just need to weed out the oil leak and its good to go, sounds fantastic!

Took it off the axle stands today and got it on the ramps but before that i just had to snap a picture of it with all 4 advans touching the tarmac.
The bonnet doesn't fit due to the air filter and fmic clash, thinking of a battery relocate, move the fmic over and fit the hks kit.



Hot DAMN!
