Fascinating stuff, so do you guys add 2-stroke oil to your regular pump gas tank? From my understanding, the OMP is meant to inject minimum amounts of conventional 4-stroke oil into the rotors to keep everything smooth and the seals happy. I'm guessing the idea behind the 2-stroke oil is preventative insurance in case the OMP fails? Do you experience any drivability issues with the added 2-stroke oil, or not really since it's made to be mixed with gas and still combust efficiently?

yup...the 2 stroke does the same thing as the OMP basically, but with more peace of mind and more reliably as well since its mixed directly to the gas, it also lubes the seals better than the OMP does because fuel injector spray patterns have a wider area than the small OMP nozzles
i keep the OMP and premix just to be safe...little things like that are what keep rotarys running hard, revving high, and not popping seals

This really is an incredible build, nice to see people really think there builds through and have the patience to do them correctly. Do you think you will make it to HIN next week?

Two engines were available, the twin turbo 13B-RE and the 20B-REW. The triple rotor 20B had 2 Litres (1962 cc) of displacement, making it the largest capacity rotary offered for sale by Mazda. It produced 300 hp (224 kW) and 300 lb·ft (402 N·m) with twin turbochargers. The JC series Cosmo set several firsts in Automotive history. Its 13B-RE and 20B-REW engines were the first series production twin sequential turbo systems to be offered for sale on a rotary engined car (The twin sequential turbo piston engined Porsche 959 predates the Eunos Cosmo by several years). The better known FD RX-7 didn't receive the twin turbo 13B-REW engine until early 1992. Plus was the first production car in the world to get a GPS option & the first in Japan to use the "Palmnet" serial data comms system for ECU-to-ECAT operation.
This 4th generation Cosmo was way ahead of its time electronically as well by being offered  with Car Control System, a CRT colour touch-screen controlling climate control, mobile phone, GPS car navigation, NTSC TV, radio and CD-Player. Mazda promotional video for Eunos Cosmo (Japanese)
The Cosmo was speed limited to 180 km/h (111.8 mph) to suit Japanese regulations, but the 20B-REW version was capable of 255 km/h (158.4 mph) if given a free run. With over 380 N·m (280 lb·ft) of torque available at just 1800 rpm, the Cosmo could launch from standstill to freeway speeds quickly; however, this came at the expense of heavy fuel consumption. The JC Cosmo was expensive even by today's standards, as Mazda still has not matched the sales price of this car some 18 years later for anything else in its range.
The Cosmo was manufactured from February 1990 until September 1995, and gathered a total of 8,875 sales. A split of 60/40 sales between 13B-RE and 20B-REW variants made the triple rotor 20B-REW version a rare car. Although the Cosmo remained a Japanese market-only vehicle (export had been proposed originally under the Eunos sales channel or the defunct USA-only Amati sales channel. ), the Cosmo has found its way to RHD countries such as Australia, New Zealand, & the UK (LHD Norway)thanks to limited import regulations for private importers from these countries. The Eunos Cosmo appeared in Sega GT and in the Gran Turismo, Gran Turismo 2 and Gran Turismo 5 games, as well as the Arcade game series Wangan Midnight: Maximum Tune 1, 2 & 3.

Got some more work done this after noon
Finally got my tires!! Continental ExtremeContact DW
they aren't my first choice at all, but they were basically the only ones that were on back order...it was either these or Nitto Invos, but the Invos are sad excuses for performance tires.
I've heard good reviews, but i'll definitely be swapping these out for some proper BFGoodrich KDW2 and then the Toyo R888 for the track
swapped out the pulleys with the new Touge Factory units. They really are awesome. Lightweight, brings the alternator pulley and water pump in the smaller stock sizes, and then the crank pulley is smaller and lighter...and it comes with a power steering pulley!! super sick kit and decently priced as well!!
I put some comparison shots so you guys could see
also did the turbo blankets on the twins they're finally ready to into the car for good!!!!
