I did search and I found this:

Didn't know what the 13btt came out of because i don't really care about Mazda's or any FWD cars for that matter and all you mentioned in your original post was the speed 3 which is a fwd car. But hey, I'm all for thinking outside the box, I say go for it!

Really?, 320 hp & 350 ft/lbs to the front wheels @18 pounds? Certainly not on the stock turbo I would say more like 260 hp 280 ft/lbs and with that my friend I would be showing you my taillights all day long being that the MS3 weighs around 3200 lbs. To be honest I'll line up with you even if you dynoed at 320/350.

The fastest MS3 I have seen ran a 12.3 at 115 with 400 whp. My best time with my 332ti was a 12.8 @ 110 with about 35 hp less than its running now.

So back to the 13btt, I think that $ for $ an modded S52 will be a better investment. It will weigh less, be more reliable and make better power than the 13btt. After the custom mounts, wiring, and engine upgrades to make it perform better than a S52 would be a waste of $.

LS1 in a 318ti in my opinion is also a waste. The normal E36 chassis is a much better candidate to maximize the performance potential of the V8.

i already said this wasnt a thread about my MS3 vs your Ti. and i used to run mid 12's all day. i could go through every single modification on my old car to show you how i got that power out of 18psi, but that would be a waste of time, because idgaf. the car is long gone by now. This is about a ti

as for your point....thats nice, but i think its clear that i dont want an s52. I like the ingenuity of the wankel and thats that

This guy has to be a troll. He will never do the 13btt swap and I doubt his story about the MS3. I'm all about having a good discussion but don't come here blowing smoke because we will call you on it.

You can't judge an S52 swapped ti on a bad example of one... the S52 in a ti is a tried and true swap. Done right, with the battery in the back and the larger diff the balance remains pretty close to stock. As stated previously, BMW did this set up in the S52 M Roadster and M Coupe, not to mention the 323ti... That said, I like seeing different set ups, so have at it!

I DONT HAVE THE CAR ANYMORE!!! that part of my life is over, next chapter Eurotary Ti-Rx. i have an art student buddy of mine coming up with a badge emblem for me
