Really nice 8, and even a better engine . It's amazing how MS bumpers can add to the looks combined with nice set of wheels.

We're waiting for more pictures

Thumbs up 3/16/2012 update

Little update:

When the 13brew was installed it was mounted on to solid engine mounts.
This creates vibration throughout the body at certain rpms

Last week I installed the 13brew engine mount/brace from rx8performance and its so much better now!

Next on the list is to install the D-Spec's and Tein springs I have sitting here in the garage.

I'm getting excited for DGRR 2012... Gonna be lots of fun on the dragon

Pics...

nice Steve! that was one of the two things about the swap I didnt care for, the other being no OMP... I saw that brace on his site, the swap is getting easier all the time!

Talking

Video my my first ever AutoX back in Feb 2012
I'm sorry about the quality of the video... I hope to have a gopro 2 really soon.


I had a blast! I'm so hooked on AutoX



Another one that I found that someone posted on YouTube.(from the march 2012 mini track)
Sorry it's kinda short.

Yes this swap is..... by the time your ready someone will have a bolt in kit for ya!


The OMP can be used with the REW swap(when using the renni front cover & ECU) you just have to make your own turbo manifold to clear the OMP.

Im using the FD HKS cast manifold and there is just no room due to the turbo placement for a OMP.

But premixing doesnt bother me at all.

What engine management are you using ? That's a sweet car, the engine swap brace is brilliant.

Thanks, running stock ECU w/ Int X. Yes, the brace works well.


Went to the local 1/4 track here in Orlando to do some fun runs against a co-worker with a Audi A4.
I ran with street tires and was boosting 12psi. Fun times!

Link to a video of the runs. My friend in the Audi put this video together.
Third run is my best of the night [email protected]
It was frustrating trying to get off the line halfway decent and not spin the tires.
