Nothing really to all mystery about it. 2 stroke motor x 1.3 is equiv power and torque to 2.6 L. I have a 93. There are other gains as well, such as no shrouding of physical valves or frictional valvetrain losses, higher rpm capacity to 9000rpm mechanical. Mine is limited to 8200 due to turbo capacity.

well that's kinda unfair. comparing a normal rotary engine to a normal piston engine is like comparing 2 piston engines of the same size, with one being N/A and one being turbo charged. One makes 250hp, and the other makes nearly 600.

The volumetric capacity of a Mazda 13B engine is 1308cc
Saying the motor should be 2.5 is extremely misguided.. For starters the Output is considered to be at 2.6litres.. However this is false.. It's only been regulated this way because if the Rotary motor wasn't restricted, Mazda would be winning all forms of motor sport showing how inferior piston motors truly are!

Yes RX-8 weighs between 1350-1390kg\'s depending on model.
The RX-7 is much lighter and faster, but not necessarily a better car.

Torque figure is inaccurate it is actually 216 LB/FT not 160 but thats ok. I just love RX7s oh and Annonymous its engine only burns 1.3L worth of air feul mixture per revolution so 1.3L is completely accurate.

this should be classed as 2.5 litres, because of the wankel engine
