FL Going to Rebuilt My 8

Here is A Little info on my RX8.
I bought my rx8 here from a member that really just didnt take care of this car.
Info a 2004 rx8 6 speed. I drove to Mississipi to pick it up car. I got car for 3,400, some may so to much but I think is good since car runs good, I know it has low compression.
I bought BHR Ignition Kit A Red Top Optima Battery,NGK Irodium Plugs. Car starts and runs great everything works check engine for rear o2 sensor and radiator temp sensor, Car hessitates to start and once on is smooth and runs great but when hot it just cranks, Im sure is compression.

Anyways. Im going to rebuilt engine and going to port out engine not much just polish anything I can while wait for parts. I think im in right track since im getting mayor things out of they way first . My fuel pump is good ,has good pressure but once car is running im buying a walbro from BHR just to be in the safe side since is going to be my daily and my sons car in a few years so I want to know out mayor parts,

Any ways im porting and polishing engine just not sure where best place to buy parts from . I want them to last me about 100,000 miles I know I can get it done, Im hoping my housings are good . Anyways here is my Little project.

Should been a decent project. I'd get a case of brake cleaner, carb. cleaner, WD-40, and a ton of rags/towels. Idk where you are in FL but when I was down there with my 8 Ed Morse Mazda treated me pretty well; I'd trust them for the motor parts order.

Gl man, get some
