Description: 1275cc 4 banger, 4spd transmission, and original rear end are getting replaced by a mazda 12a rotary engine, 5spd transmission, and rearend with disc brakes and LSD from an '84 Rx7 GSL. 12a is going to get rebuilt and streetported. I am going to run a SR racing modified Nikki carb on a ported stock intake manifold. Engine mounts, and exhaust header will need to be custom made. Mazda GSL rear end will get narrowed and the axles re drilled for the original sprite bolt pattern. Battery and fuel cell will be located in trunk. Wiring will come from a street rod wiring harness

Special Thanks to Brad Golden @ Rotary Inspired for the 12a build

Chris Campbell @ The Vintage Connection for the custom motor mounts, transmission mount, fuel cell mount, and exhaust header
