The comp cover is on its way, so you should be able to finalize the manifold design.

Thanks, not really the issue at the moment, but it will help me begin to understand how the fitment will play out. I need to still take delivery of the other car from existing owner and then it’s turned out the the two week point of my health recovery (last Wednesday) was actually the low point of this whole throat cancer treatment process as far as low physical energy, not feeling well, and so on.

It seems to be getting better daily now, but since it was a 10 week process of feeling worse daily then I’m expecting the opposite to also be along the same line. Hopefully it will only be another week or two before I start feeling well enough to becoming more physically involved in starting on this process as well as finishing up my RX8 race car which needs to take precedence over this new turbo project.

Things are constantly in flux too. Now back to the original idea of buying a JDM 4-port/5-spd engine&trans combo after finding a better deal.

Well unfortunately I had to make a decision and it was to take whatever losses come from pre-made purchases and down payments rather than proceed onward regardless and potentially stall out before completion. I figured to spend mid-high $20k between buying the car, the engine, and completing the full install, but the reality is I have more bills pouring in than expected from my recent health issue, which was further compounded by an appendix surgery and bills from April of last year. I was lucky most of my life rarely getting sick much more than some sniffles and sneezes, but my age and past sins seem to have finally caught up with me.

The owner of the car I was going to purchase has been dragging his feet getting it ready to complete the sale so I just optioned to eat the DP and back put of that and I bought a unique interior as well as the turbo and accessories that I’ll likely resell at a loss. Kind of sucks, but I also still need to finish out my RX8 race car and then decide if I’m going to keep that up as a hobby or retire from that part of my life too. Since that’s been stalled put for several years too it weighed into my decision. I’m struggling to find the same energy and enthusiasm levels I had in my younger days. Just getting old I suppose ...

Unfortunately this is just another RX8Club coulda-shoulda-woulda thread ...

That sucks to hear Team, as this was clearly an interesting and contentious subject here on the club and it would have been cool to see it bear fruit.

Team, I hope all is well with you health wise. Take care of yourself. I don't visit nearly as much as I used to but was silently watching this to see where you were headed.
