Default Motor swap

New owner of a 1984 model RX seven...pretty jazzed about that..love the car...question the Wankel..I have owned the 1.3 engine in a couple of Festivas..great motors and it seems to me the perfect replacement for the Wankel...will the 1.3 bolt up to the rx trans? Thanks!

It would appear they will not bolt up...so I will be in need of a Miata Tranny it looks like....anyone know which tranny's will work behind the 1.3? Looks like it weighs a bit more than I thought.
