Sweet Bug. What is it? 1600, 1800, or bigger (2000cc+). Or smaller.

havent looked at this post in a day and all these replies, sweet. Thanks for the + points.

So car is not for sale, sorry im totally keeping this thing.

So when i got the car it had a first gen mazda rotary eng in it, a street ported 12a with webber 48IDA. something like 180 hp. not bad for a 1600lb car. well it sat for way to long so the motor got totally seized. i tore that out cause im a boxer guy (love rotarys too they are amazing) but cost/performance i cant bet the aircooled german engineering. Im gonna put an 1835cc built motor that i can turbo one day. should make some good power.

the rotary was set up for nitrous but never ran

my motor plans are on hold due to subaru motor failure, a piston rod bearing failed, JDM replacement here i come.
