Scotty,

Love your content! I've been getting into Mazda RX-8's and realized that the rotary engines they made them with are very unreliable. Should I consider doing an engine swap and, if so, which one?

There are swap kits for GM LS1 V8s

But by the time you buy one of those engines, buy the kit, install it, test it, etc.   it would be a MASSIVE project. Do you have a garage, engine lift, full set of tools (and lots of mechanical skills)?
