PM rgonza and RX8PR, they're your men on that subject (they don't sell, but know where to buy it.)

in canada anything over 15 years can be imported without loopholes. it's CHEAP to get a 20b import from japan. That's the loophole everyone uses. Importing into the US is a big problem.

look here

You are from Sabah Malaysia right?

Best option would be for you to get a 20B from Australia or NZ.... I can put you in touch from some people who might have a 20B if you are interested.... But a 20B block in good condition will not be cheap...

Cause I'm looking to buy any rotary engine and Puerto Rico would be the best option for me imo. Thanks for the help.

if you have to ask such a basic question, you are already in over your head.

Yeah I fancy the thought of dropping in a 20b in my 06 black GT, and if was as easy as the GSR swap in my old 93 bubble back, I'd be interested. well it looks like i'll have to find another option, the Rx-8 needs at least 300hp to the wheels to f%$k with anything else in its class. anyone know of any reliable ways to achieve this?

why would the rx8 need 300 rwhp to compete with cars like the s2k or 350z? neither of those have even close to 300 whp. a midpipe, tune and nitrous will have you taking anything in our class. and a 20b is way overkill if your goal is 300whp, that can easily be achieved by a turbo on a stock renesis engine

lol!^..... weeellllllllll.... @ ajsabidodo you want me to slap you right now or after I finish telling you the difference between a 20B and 13B Renesis? I stick to telling you the simple basic differences. The 13B Renesis is a 2 rotor engine and is capable of producing anywhere from 140hp+ (AT) to 400hp+ ( when rebuild and w/ ESEMERIL Turbo Kit w/ dyno charts "supposedly")<--- thats if it doesnt blow after a couple of months. The 20B is a 3 rotor engine and is capable of producing anywhere from 250hp+ to X00hp+ (enough to snap trannies, axles, and drive shafts) when rebuilt and Turbo'd. Not only that but if you look at the size of the single turbo producing the X00+hp it most likely is capable of eating small children and pets, and possibly cause your wife to drop her panties and throw them at the owner

Go to youtube and type in 3 rotor RX8 and if you see a nice blue one....go ahead and click on it. Or just search AngelJoeV on this forum.

20B is like the rotor equivalent to a 383 stroker in the piston world

It's the reason I put my tie on and go to work everyday.....keeps me motivated.
