what flywheel clutch combo can I use if I'm using the b2200 bell-housing? is the clutch for the 1st gen non-turbo the same as the clutch for the b2200?
in that case I can use the n/a fidanza flywheel and clutch.
Great to see a real cam going into one of these motors.
And don't listen to guys saying overlap is the devil (in bad cajun accent) on turbo cars.
How many N/A cars have been converted to turbo with a stock N/A cam, literally thousands!
So using a stock N/A cam from a 2L shouldn't hurt at all.
It will be very interesting to see how it performs.
nice build nice thread nice pics.

The interprep 270s are measured to have 18 degrees of overlap, and those are SIGNIFICANTLY more aggressive (both lift and duration) than even the ZE cams, so the overlap on the ZE cams must be minimal at best, thus they boost so well. This is also the reason that Geoff at Colt will tell you not to get straight 218's and boost them, to stick with something a little more mild with LESS overlap.

what exactly did you do for the transmission? i never did sell the rx7 shell and now that my bmw runs i might finish this project too. i've got the rx7 trans and b2200 trans also i just havent set them side by side yet or taken them apart.

I sent them both into a transmission shop and just told them to use the b2200 bell on the rx7 non-turbo tranny. They bolted right up and work. The thing I'm worried about is that there isn't much of a spline coming out of the tranny, not sure if it will mesh. I will prob find out soon though when I get my much needed fidanza and 6 puck clutch from the non-turbo mx6/b2200
