though cool and all, most people do swaps for more power, or reliabilty...no? when you can get even the 2.0 block over 400hp, what else do you want? a rotary would be cool, but even after all the work, it'll cost WAY more than any turbo build on the existing motor.
now i know many "just want to" but i think the reason should be said in those cases.
..would really get me points in the shows
...i've got an extra 3 rotor in the garage, just wanna mount it
....mommy's paying for everything
an RB into a 240 makes sense though. they are very common, and fairly easy swaps. ecu issues aren't as previlant as they are with the new systems. if i had a 240 you bet your ass i'd have one in there too!
not all motor swaps are dumb, but moving to the same thing...or less, is

anything 240//drift is expensive. $4 grand for anything in good shape. now i guess that isn't A TON. but, i'd just turbo my car for 4 grand instead of a whole new motor
240's are cheap. drifting is expensive.
you can find full swap rb's for 3-5k and full swap sr20's or 1-2k on ebay all day long.
