If anyone knows of a shop in the San Diego area familiar with rotarys I'd appreciate it.

I'll refrain from saying good or bad until/unless a dedicated rotary guy can check out this engine.
Look up "SoCal All Rotary" on Facebook. Great guys.

Updated my first post in thread after getting everything running again and having time to think about the situation and consider the words from Kevin at Rotary Resurrection.

NotAPreppie, I read your update and it still sounds like Omar very much under performed in your case. Not good for his reputation and not good for his customers like you.

If $2150 results in a [email protected]@ss subpar job then it seems like suckerbait to me, especially if it's not represented that way from the start

Thanks BigCajun. I'll have to check some of them out. I know people frown upon it here but I'm thinking I might do it myself. I need a new rear rotor due to broken side seals but after the new rotor is in my hands I'm going to try my hand at it. I like a little challenge. I'm tired of playing with piston engines. Just too boring and everything sounds better at 9k rpm lol
