Its been done, however most people will play with the newer 13b engines when making a rotorolla. Its a popular conversion in New Zealand and theres a website called club K where a few of these cars are featured.

Apparently the 13b won't be legal in a ke30 but a 12a is or is that wrong
Ideally I would like to have it as a street car in nsw

Worth noting also Mazda stopped making 12a parts a few years ago

Yup. Rotary engine no good unless you can get a hold of some new housings, which Mazda don't make anymore.

Someone is cutting down 13b housings to use in 12as and re cutting the o-ring. Apparently it works, I'm not convinced it's the best idea.

You can still buy 13b housings as they made the 13b until like 2002 or so, much better option.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not to their own facts.

This is probably a dumb question, but would a stock diff and tail shaft work with a 12a/13b ??
