04-11 RX-8 RENESIS 13B PRE-BUILT SHORT BLOCK ROTARY ENGINE

PRICE: $2900+ DEPENDING ON SPECIFICATIONS/QUALITY OF COMPONENTS USED IN THE BUILD

SUMMARY: 

  • I can sometimes build an engine using my used components, ready for outright sale “out the door” without a core supplied up front. I would generally request a deposit up front to begin such a build.
  • Cost of this option will be approx. twice that of rebuilding your core. This is because not only am I supplying all the seals and orings listed below plus assembly labor, but also each component (rotors, housings, irons etc.) which carry a value of $100-400 each on the used market, which I must also charge for.
  • You transport or pay actual shipping cost 
  • Inquire with year and model desired, specifications requested, and I will check stock to see what components I have available, the condition of those components, and quote the build accordingly. Also check HERE for a list of pre-built engines currently in stock on the shelf ready for immediate sale.

  • When rotor housings are reused, they are resurfaced. This service skims material off the top chrome sealing layer to remove light defects and improve the uniformity of the sealing surface, however it cannot repair deep wear or defects and cannot put back worn away chrome. Some other shops provide this service “out the door” for as much as $300 plus round trip shipping, it is included free in my build.
  • Spark plug holes threads are cleaned and retapped. OMP injector holes are drilled to remove clogged carbon.

OTHER INFORMATION/TERMS:

  • Turnaround time 2-4 weeks depending on workload waiting ahead of you. February through May are the busiest months with increased wait time. 
  • Rotary Resurrection is located in Morristown, TN. 
  • Normally once I receive your engine specs and deposit, I will continue working on other jobs ahead of you until they are complete, then, I will proceed with the build, and photo document the cleaned/inspected/prepared parts prior to and during assembly of the block, so that you have documentation of what you have now. Then you will have approximately 1 week to pay the balance and pick up or ship the engine back out.
  • All builds are accompanied by a written 1 year unlimited mileage warranty on the labor aspect of the build only. The warranty is posted elsewhere on this site.
  • My standard procedure for starting a build is as follows:
  1. I need all of your information including full name, street address, city/state/zip, shipping address (for truck freight, if different), phone number(s), and year/model of engine. I also need all build specs such as paint colors for the engine block (black/gunmetal is default), apex seal and porting options, and any special requests. You can send this information via email or in writing at time of dropoff.
  2. Payment is payable via cash, credit card in person or via internet invoice, or US post office money order made to Kevin Landers . I may take a deposit up front at dropoff depending on the nature of your build. This deposit may increase with certain build options such as more expensive seals or other components. IF applicable, the deposit amount is taken off of the total price of the build.
