simple... Longer stroke and larger displacement, (Basically two 800cc rotors) and Direct injection... compared to ( two 654cc rotors) ....... direct injection (a more precise method of metering and injecting fuel) and the renesis 1 exhaust ports on the sides of the housing, controlling overlap make for cleaner emissions

2avp, sensors, 2 knock sensors. better located oil injectors. also two metering pumps. more fuel and air at 6000rpms.
