Smile 3 Rotor conversion in Europe for the RX8?

Hi guys!

I've read a lot about 3-rotor Rx8s in the US...

Does anybody know if there is a tuner who is able to do this in Europe for a rational price?

Thanks for your answers - greetings from Austria!!

Clearly you didn't read much.

Did you check out prices for U.S. based 3-rotors?

I don't think anyone in the world does this for a "rational" price unless you do the installation yourself and get hooked up on all the parts/know a rotary specialist..

hmm thanks for the answers - I know that a conversion is not cheap - but is there any tuner which is able to do it (even with a "not rational" price) in Europe?

The engine is cheap, average $4000, but that is just the start - computer, missing parts and mounts, tuning and the bodywork to horn it all into a small space.....

....and don't forget the universal rule, that it will all cost double in Europe!

Sorry for the late reply but i just read this thread.
There are shops that can do it but you will probably be around the 25000 price tag. Fitting the engine is not that expensive but then comes the wiring and tuning part that really brings the labor costs up.

Try shooting a pm to swrotary, he was planning a 20b swap and he's european as well so he may point you out to the right shop.
