4 rotor was/is best.
yes, Gobs of tq, big aftermarket, very reliable, came Carbed, Fi, and FI Turbo
Never knew it came fuel injected or turbo'd. Which cars, which years?
Different strokes for different folks? Besides, Mazda didn't have the 4-rotor in any car (or did they?). I know that Chevy toyed with the idea of a 4-rotor Vette back in the 70s though.
If I remember, fuel injection was offered in the 83-85 Celica, not sure when it became offered in the trucks, and it was only offered with a turbo in the small truck (not sure if it was called a tacoma yet at that point)
Time to google.
I was kidding.
Only car the 4-rotor has ever been in is the 787b I think (Their race car thang).
And 4 rotor vette would kick all manner of ass.
Too bad Chevy didn't see a good thing when they had it.
i actualy have a 22r. it owns
working on making it a 20/22r hybrid now
Yeah, instead of moving towards rotary, they moved towards... generic FWD shitboxes.
Benefits of the hybrid?
higher compression, better flow
22R-TE had an assload of torque, but not much HP.
I'm curious about this. I always thought it would be badass to take one of those old turbocharged trucks and make it some crazy sleeper.
decent motors, there are "performance" modifications for it... like headers and such...
i remember they came on first gen 4runners,
its weird that they put the 22-rte in the trucks adn not the celicas tho.
kinda pisses me off that they put a 22r in my car
thats why im doing the hybrid motor. no one is gonna think a old celica is gonna be fast.
Is there any documentation of any sort on the process maybe with pictures and dyno #'s?
The 20R/22R motors are, for the most part, bulletproof. They develope excellent torque for a 4cyl, and respond well to mods. After adding a Weber carb and RV cam to mine, the change was night and day. I could also keep up with a full size ford truck w/ 351 cleveland down the 1/4 mile (was actually ahead 3/4 the way down the track). I think I spun a bearing in mine, so am now looking for a new one (friend took it off roading and ran it out of oil ). It's not a twin cam performance motor, it's a basic motor, with good torque, that's reliable and responds well to mods.
lol. i spun 2 bearings on mine in october. just rebuilt it a few months ago. and no pics or anything yet on the 20/22r swap. i just picked up my head last week and its at the machine shop now getting bigger valves put in her
More info. As in 4-rotor?
I was reading that one page linked from ToySport. It mentions running a CT26 from a Supra @ 25psi. I think that 25psi would be overkill on the CT26....
