Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

haha yeah, the 240 manifold will get rid of all that crap, it will just be a normal manifold.

I want to be a cool kid with a turbo truck too, plain and simple. I heard the ladies LOVE it.

Yup that's a 31 dollar paint job. That's rustoleum!! I sanded, wet sanded and buffed, now for the rest of the truck.

so today is going to be the fun project of replacing the timing chain finally. Its not going to sound like a total pile of crap any longer, so thats a major plus. And while I am in there I am going to do a coolant flush because its so rusty and brown.

well there was one hidden bolt that I didnt see on the front timing cover.... and the whole thing was rtv'ed on so I pulled and pulled untill I broke that coner off. So long story short, I just ordered a new frontend timing cover. Lame. But I hope by next weekend it will be all back together.

That is a bummer Greg. I went up to Maine this weekend, and quickly realized that Maine is where all the D21's go to die. Every yard in Maine has at least 1 Nissan pickup in it. It pretty odd really.
