I know the full bridge is a big difference over a big streetport.. and the idle sound is just wonderful

good on you for explaining what the real meaning of "boost pressure" is. 30psi and 30psi arent always the same.

Older video, also just re found your channel after my account got yeeted. Love the stuff. I watched Banks power a ton, and he gets into a lot of technical aspects. You can have super hot air, and ram all the pressure in it you want, but where it shines is when the air can get in there, prefferably as cold and compressed as possible, and then give it all she can take. Obviously you know this, but just nice to hear you talk about it. People running 40 50 60 PSI on some engines, (with exceptions) you gotta wonder if they're doing it right or just slap a huge turbo and go.

Man i've been watching your videos since you first started with the Diablo stuff. Close to the time you had the video of this car on the trailer shooting huge flames. As much as I love the 4-rotor videos, i'm glad to see this thing back!

IF TOU HAVE MORE PRESSURE DO A COMPOUND SYSTEM! TURBO-INTERCOOLER-TURBO-INTERCOOLER! with this setup its like a two step compressor. You compress already compressed air so you sont need to rub The turbos at very high rpm. You can have two turbos running at 75% instead

If you know your shits guna run there is absolutely nothing wrong with using good thick engine oil. You should line it up beside Leroy or ruby if you think it'll out torque an ls! Lol

I think it's time to make the leap, hire a body shop, and make something actually look complete...you build some rowdy things but they always look like they're picked out of a dumpster...take it next level boys!

It’s really cool to see how much Rob’s knowledge has grown over the years. Just thinking back to when he got the Lambo to now is really admirable.

You sould try to make a new oil pan for the wankel's, you got the tools to do rather than reuse part you sould create and become an inspiration for this channel ❤️
Yo, free oil coolers?

I'd like to see this soo called torque... ive never seen a rotory make any measurable torque.. I've seen 1400hp rotory engines make less than 400 foot pounds of torque.

The turbo isn't "maxed" until you try to add boost and it doesn't make any more than it did, unless there's a boost leak or something.

I love these videos because there is no stupid, long intro or outro with flashy graphics, no "hey remember to please please please subscribe, comment and like all my videos, blah blah blah", he gets straight into the meat and potatoes, and then the video is over. Love it!

I have a bit of experience tuning a single cylinder, single stage fuel injection system using injector pulse timing. I can only imagine how insane it must be to do it with three rotors and dual stage injection. You are a good tuner, Rob.

Makes sense... Most ls engines are truck engines producing under 400 ft lbs of tq. A rotary needs a lot of help achieving large tq numbers... Nevermind those seal leaks. 🤣 Might wanna ask Paul Moller for some help on em.

Title should be : «We MAXED out the TURBO on the 3 Rotor RX-7! More Torque than most STOCK LS engines» Don't get me wrong, your cars are incredible, but no way a spinning doritos will ever be able to make as much torque than a LS AND survive as long without being rebuild a few times !
