Max a few questions if its ok.

Im currently in the process of an REW swap on a series 1 with an adaptronic pnp ecu.

Did you have to extend the engine wiring loom to reach around the back of the FD upper plenum/manifold ?

Are you using an OMP (oil metering pump) or premix ?

If not did you plug in the RX8 OMP to fool the factory ECU that its still there ?

Did you have to shorten the lower water pump inlet to clear anything ?

Did you do the return fuel system with surge tank yet and if you did can you please detail your setup, especially how you connected the series II assembly to the surge tank and what you connected your return line to in the series II fuel pump assembly.

I will be using the series II fuel pump assembly with an upgraded fuel pump going to a 3 liter surge tank in the boot via a -6 fitting from the fuel pump outlet to the surge tank and then dual bosch 044's to the engine and am trying to figure out how to do so, where to connect the return line from the surge tank to the stock assembly using a -6 bulkhead fitting and what to connect it to in the fuel pump assembly so that the fuel tank can continue to work like in a standard car (syphon fuel from the right side of the tank etc).

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

ratm, I suggest you start a new thread with your questions then continue it as a build thread. That would be better for you and keep Max's build thread clear.

No, only the coil harness were extended because i didnt put them in stock location

Premix only, not much room down there and i have the rew cover anyway

Just plugged in

Just rotated it to be in a good angle and reweld

I dont want a surge tank, right now i have a s2 with a denso 265 pump returnless but going back to s1 with a walbro 450lph in tank and ill do a return line

I will be using the series II fuel pump assembly with an upgraded fuel pump going to a 3 liter surge tank in the boot via a -6 fitting from the fuel pump outlet to the surge tank and then dual bosch 044's to the engine and am trying to figure out how to do so, where to connect the return line from the surge tank to the stock assembly using a -6 bulkhead fitting and what to connect it to in the fuel pump assembly so that the fuel tank can continue to work like in a standard car (syphon fuel from the right side of the tank etc).

Thanks for the reply, you saved me a lot of time mate, greatly appreciated !

I will be starting a build thread in about two weeks once the engine and gearbox are in the car, then I can take pics as I go through the steps of the conversion.

Thanks again.

Some changes this year, removed the intakr tube and relocated the maf. Still tuning it, at 15psi right now. I have to do a fuel pump upgrade (walbro460) this summer for more boost

So its 2018, right?

precision turbo took a **** at the end of 2017 so i upgraded it to a garrett gtw3884r wich is watercooled(prefer watercooling imo) and added innovate tc4(1 sensor per runner)

took her back home for some more goodies got her a new ecu! So out with the select and in with the modular ! Added a fuel pressure sensor wired to ecu and plugged in the tc4+ and psb1 with serial cables and then setted up the ecu at my local shop.

Ecu is far better in every ways than select, alot more functions, flexibility and its alot more capable than select, real testing soon

Went on the dyno but had fuel pressure drop pretty bad so had to stop there.

While on dyno, o2 sensor got cooked so i made this ghetto heat shield on the sensor and moved it further downstream.

Finally replaced the fuel pump with a walbro 450 i fitted in the oem s2 assembly and added a fpr and radium venturi and return line. i have to book another dyno session but so far it works great

Great progress, can't wait to see the results. My adaptronics internal MAP sensor is going to ****, it is logging phantom boost spikes that do not exist and causing the ECU to dump so much fuel that I go <10:1 AFR. Hope it all works out for you.

Depends where you connect map sensor hose to. I had issues before on the select also, it fluctuated alot under boost, moved the connection for map in the tb flange and added a restrictor pill to damp the signal and it helped. Modular is better on that part also
