1988 firebird 5 speed, came with the car and it's a 60° V6 trans.
Think it's a T5?

Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
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.

Wow. That is incredibly awesome. What about the flywheel?

Flywheel is going to be a custom job, likely bolting to the flex plate like a torque converter.
That depends how stout the flex plate is, if it's flimsy, it'll be a custom aluminum one with the flex plate's ring gear.
Can't justify spending more on a flywheel than the engine itself...

Yes I know I should've grabbed the dash but without the BCM it'd serve little purpose. Also my debit card was already depleted from the other crap. lol Besides judging from the look of the fluids it must've been well taken care of. The only concerning thing is that black oil covering half the front end of the engine. Might need one of the lesser seals. Anyway Idk why we're really using this old thread. I'll be creating an actual build thread soon so this can be more up to date and organized. Odds are it'll end up on this forum but I was considering making an actual blog about it. I might also make more use of my Firebird youtube account that I currently only have one video on. When I make the new thread/blog I'll post it here.
