Frankenstein s4 13bt swap

I opted out of the rew because I already had the motor so don't give me blah blah blah rew this and rew that you need rew -_- . motor came from my fc drift car, decent run down... S4 t2 with Cosmo RE housings, rotors, e shaft and weights... Largest street port my builder could do, built by Eccentric Motorsports in Indy. Rebuilt with goopy 2mm seals, hybrid s5 turbo with ported s5 wastegate, and Garrett .60 ar compressor side. 1000cc secondary and primary injectors.
This is my new drift build, I love my fc but needed a newer chassis and I didn't want to try and find a fd. found this ugly yellow Rx8 shell and started getting things together and ready will add more pics and info when I can. As of this point and time car just needs a tune but will fill in everything in between with free time. Car is running on a microsquirt ecu,








Donor engine and setup





When the car was picked up

You should put a 13B-REW in it, much better engine.

Nice bro! Fast work.
Don't worry about it now being a REW.
You'll be fine use what you have.

Thanks man, goal is 350-400whp I'm sure I'll be able to with my setup. Have custom tie rod ends and knuckles I need to install for more steering angle.

We had this setup with a bridged engine and all the bells and whistles with a BW EFR9180 and it had no issues making 600HP....so I'm sure you will be OK trying to make 400

Custom knuckles and tie rods for better angle. And looking like a ugly car<br/>

She got some fresh air! Put new front and rear doors that actually have Windows lol so i was happy. Starting to look like a car!





About that nasty interior... This will be a caged interior drift car! I think after is better

Looks great, even if you did get rid of the original yellow, my favourite RX8 colour.

What arrangement for the coolers (rad, intercooler, oil) have you got; they look interesting from the pics, a nice change from the normal FMIC in front of the original rad?

Running a stock fc oil cooler. Right now has a stock rad but ordered a mishimoto 2 row to make sure I won't have any heating issues during hot laps I'm also using a Taurus sho fan wired on high. Never over heated when I used that same setup on my fc so I'll do the same since its the motor that was in my fc lol. Running a vmount type intercooler setup but keep the rad in stock location. It works so I'm happy
