Does anybody know...?
Is supercharging legal in the state of TX?
And where are we supposed to mount the front license plate?
Does porting + super/turbocharging balance out for the purpose of emissions testing?
super/turbocharging adversely affects exhaust emissions (though the Renesis is supposed to have a secondary exhaust re-funneled back to the combustion chamber to re-burn unused gas) but porting allows for more air intake so does this end up cancelling out?
Imagine porting + supercharging...

Who wants to take over the world with me?
I believe the engine is a very tight fit, and thus would be hard to adapt a super/turbo charger onto the car.
At least that's what I read. I think they will increase rotor width for the RX-7 to get upwards of 300 horses, so that they don't have to add a turbocharger. It seems better to me, as there's no better thing than a naturally aspirated throttle response Sure you don't get put back in your seats but the response is immediate all over the RPM range, specially in a rotary.

if the 'speed version is anything less than 325hp, I may just go with 6-speed 250hp version, but all the possibilities and experimenting would be fun!
Keep in mind that a MazdaSpeed (or more likely for the RX-8, MPS) version would not only increase horsepower but lower weight by use of lighter materials.
So with a slight power boost and decent weight loss, there would be a great deal more speed to the car. I think that is the way Mazda will go instead of just upping the displacement a great deal. Probably increase rotor width a few mm, and get upwards of 300 horses and 200+ lb/ft of torque, so that car should fly
I'm sure they will also make suspension adjustments as well.
i've been highly envolved in the rxx7 club in dfw...and i think it would be a great idea for all the new rotory owners to come and join us..we have a few non rotory people that hangout with us as well...including a turbo mazda mp3...a miata or 2....a vette and a 240sx...were pretty much like a huge family...cant wait till i can run my seven up next to an rx8..lots of fun
