it depends on your turbo, buti believe laquis made a lil over 700whp with i think about 23-25 psi on premium. i'm not knowledgable on rotaries but i thinks you should look into unbreakable seals.
also i know of a race 2nd gen that did high 8-low 9secs passes with less than 500whp, so i'd say suspension, race tranny, correct choice of tyres and pressures and driver ability is of more pressing concerns than all out power.

just my 2 cents.
oh, i'm assuming you are building a drag car eh, cause 30psi, 20b....what else could it be.

I've been wondering how those dudes do 10 and 9 seconds easily with way less more power and compared to here with over 500WHP and seeing trouble.....confuses me.

And the looking for fame with "PUMP FUEL" not making sense...whats the point? You eh running 25psi on the road daily...some men are, but with water/meth kits and race gas mix on premium but burn out fuel very easily.

Blame yourself & your mechanic, not the engine. Everyone Else around the world is making it work flawlessly, so I cant seem to understand why It cant work in Trinidad

i always thought rotarys were unreliable, then i saw Narend 2nd gen, he drives that daily for years, in grid lock traffic pumping normal normal. Dont know if he still have it tho, but i know he put it through the daily ringer a piston engine would go through

A 13b at 30lbs is a completely differently animal than a 20b with the same boost. People don't understand the amount of work that needs to go into a 20b for it to survive at that boost. Shaft flex is the main killer, that's why most guys who're using the stock shaft and unmodified rotors (not lightened and rebalanced rotating assembly) will keep the boost well under 30lbs and revs under 8500 rpm. More boost + more rpm = more flex + weak 20b thick housing = cracked housing (engine failure)

1300hp race cars are only running 35-40lbs and those guys have billet shaft and lightened rotors etc. That's why I don't understand why the average guy in trinidad want to run 30lbs and on pump gas too :? Don't feel that your engine is bulletproof because yuh have "unbreakable" seals and a $500 stud kit, because it's not!

A stock rotating assemble 13b will handle 40lbs & 9000rpm all day long, unlike a 20b. But this Trinidad we talking about here. The land of everybody issa borse and they know more than the rest :lol:

ah so why most of the guys i know with rx8 s only one or tow of them made it to 60,000 km???? and these guys pet their cars.........

i still have a 20 b with brand new parts to install - but its a fact that the engines are not reliable one or two maybe.....but the majority hell no...
