I don't quite get whether you are being sarcastic or not. But rotary engines have made it to production cars & currently are used in the Mazda RX-8.

Looks like the car could be running quad carbs and these pipes might be feeding air to them .. Though this is just an assumption , as its not clearly visible in the pic .. Cant be headers unless the engine is transverse mounted ..

Yeah, and my 800cc can put out 92329 hp.

And the bloody Mazda is a rotary, AND it's twin-turbo.

I love the way figures are born.

I'm guessing the engine in question is something along these lines:

It's not 1.6, it's a 1.3. And it's been around on TBHP since I signed up.

I really don't think you can call plonking on a turbo tuning. Yes, it requires sophistication and knowledge, but IMHO, when you say tune an engine to xx bhp, I would personally assume you meant NA.
