Jon,
Do you have literature on 2-stroke engine performance (porting, expansion boxes etc...)?
I'm also interested in rotary engines. Years ago there was a company by the name of "Racing Beat" they were in Anaheim (California?). They specialised in go faster goodies for rotaries. I must admit i don't know if they still exist....

No. If you hit on something that you think is outstanding
please let me know.

Yup. Many years ago I had their catalog because for a short
while I had an RX/7. They had a bunch of stuff for what I
think was called the 13B engine. Sold the car after only
having it a short time. You had to rev it like crazy and
keep the rev's high to go moderately fast.

Engine Builder's Handbook is one I like
Engine Blueprinting is also a good book and reference.

David Vizard has written some good books on every aspect of a motor. ie rotating assembly, cam & valvetrain, intake & cylinder heads. Really good reads...most of his examples are using the chevy small block but the info and concepts can be applied to all motors.
