Its on like donkey kong

As you all can see, work has finally resumed on the "swap to end all swaps".

Like anything complex, life can sometimes get in the way, hurricanes, $, family, etc.

The guys are committed to making this a reality and are 95% done. The wait is certainly going to be worth it. This is going to be a beast.

As the process is ongoing, parts are being sent out for duplication and ideas are being brought forth on how parts, or kits are going to be available and in what sequence.

SO please be patient, enjoy the video updates and way more cool engineering is on the way.

I'm still interested to see if it really comes together. Would be a nice alternative to an REW or LS swap since it should keep all electronics working.

Plenty of REW swaps and LS swaps have the electronics working.

Cruise control works fine as long as you keep the rx8 throttle body.

Traction control (TCS/DSC) worked on my car with a street-ported engine. Now with the bridgeport, the computer doesn't like all the extra air being ingested at a 1,500 RPM idle, and it doesn't work. When it did work, I had to turn it off because it made the car slower. MT drag radials have replaced the need for TC...

Very interesting stuff! Guessing Adaptronic full wire-in is the only ECU solution for us S2 owners.
