Build & Battle: Engines OUT! Rotary vs V8, What's the Fastest Budget Drag Racing Motor? EP.2

Now that both the Vargas brothers' RX7 and Bad Daddy Braddy's S10 have been gutted, it's time to choose the powerplant that will bring one of them to victory. That means we're at the beginnings of exactly what you came here for: to see how a built rotary fares against a "allegedly" stock 5.3 liter LS.

  • I hope that Brads 5.3 runs ok because that engine looks like it has the active fuel management on it and on those engines the lifters like to collapse and eat up the camshafts. He should’ve went with an older one.

    • Not sure if that's the issue, or if Brad spraying gallons of water inside the heads were a bigger issue.

  • Use the headers ... put the drive shaft between the middle of the header ....streach bend add whatever with similar tube and use them that flat stock you had there look embarrassing for a real builder .... im sorry but i could have done better

    • @Hoonigan Project Cars this is difficult to answer but I wanted to rew swap my rx8 but at the same time I always wanted a ls swapped s10 but I'm gonna have to go with team dorito because v8s are much more simple and more user friendly
