Must grab every chance you get

I have about an hour or so in the morning to strip parts off of a 04 rx8. What should I go for first? Any suggestions. I don't really NEED anything but I'm working on a supply of spare parts for the future.

Anything you see you needing the the future. I don't think anyone is going to be able to point you in the right direction on what exactly you need to grab. The only thing I could think of is small little misc items, like vacuum solenoids, fuel pump and clutch peddle

Log manifold so you can cut the runners off and replicate TeamRX8's header.

I would grab more interior parts. Sun visors, seats, shift **** and boot etc. You've grabbed a good bit of parts already. Well done!

I agree but the interior of my car is pretty much mint.(I'll get a good pic for yas) And the seats in the parts car are that awful black and like a maroon insert 🤢. I get another chance. I just might grab anything I can fit in the xterra and try to sell some.
