I know how a rotary works - but the point is that there is no cylinder even if air is compressed and combusted.

What if I owned a jet engine? How many cylinders is that? Do you count all the blades on the turbine since they are all involved in compressing and firing the charge?

Well,fuck yes, because if you own a jet engine, you deserve the +350 on your C.I.

And, since we're making up rules, I agree that a rotary should have a multiplier just because it's that cool. Twin rotor rotary? No reason that can't be worth as much as a V-8.

Though, I'm no expert on the rules and I don't own a rotary engine or a turbine. So, YMMV.
