ON THE HUNT for an engine the newer 2006 up-rated oil feed  must be a runner but can be with low compression for a round £600.00 for my new project build some club members/ friends  are already looking out for me i just after leads at the moment.

the project build is going to have some up-grades but is going into my car and going to be a daily driver instead of rebuilding my engine i am going to start fresh with some new up grades better internals, racing beat oil cooler kit, new clutch kit, a new build for around £6000.8000. Oh and with the rebuild supercharger.:Giggle:Giggle

will start a new build thread next year but looking forward to this.

You need an account to bid....but you can look at sales list at al depots around the country.....its 45 a year for member ship....2 forms of id and you can bid and buy....they even deliver for a few quid to your membership address.

Once an account holder you can view before bidding! you\'ll get a engine box and lots of spares before scraping rest on moderately hit 1 easy for £500.00  http://www.copart.co.uk

Always best to view.......Over the years ive had loads of nice cars from the Westbury site including my Evo and FD.... and my coltie track car 125 quid about 4.5 years ago ....some idiot had prised door away at top to break in....alarm went off insurance company wrote it off it. I put my knee on frame and bent back 10 secs to repair....still makes me chuckle now.
most rx8s are goona be flooded as the staff wont know how to handle them. so will be listed as non start....even cheaper.

:TypingWell had a long talk with Clive today and I hope with fingers crossed that kerim is going to build my engine so the plan is going to be that I am going to buy two new rotor housings other parts supplied by kerim and a full internals kit from Clive with a heavier duty Apex seals and street port with some extra goodies to help it run smoothly still keeping the HKS ECU TOTAL REMAP

So the car will become one of a few in Europe to be a :-

231 STREET PORTED SUPERCHARGED TWIN ECU RX-8 for the ROAD :Hammer :cool

With

Walbro 255 fuel pump from MRP

Gloopy Apex seals from MRP

FULL INTERNALS  From  MRP

RECONDITION SUPERCHARGER by Kerim

Engine Housings from MRP

OTHER ENGINE Parts supplied by Kerim/MRP

New clutch from MRP

NEW OIL COOLER PIPES RACING BEAT From MRP

KOYO aluminium radiator From MRP

Racing Beat Coolant hose kit From MRP

NEW PLUGS plugs From MRP

BLACK HALO UP RATED COILS AND LEADS

NEW HOSES FROM VIPER PERFORMANCE ( for the supercharger and other ancillaries)

Red anodised pulley kit for a little bling

Engine removal/ installation  by BISPOKE Performance and me and fitting of all new secondary parts

Then  tuning/ mapping

I feel there is more to add but that,s the list for now the build will have some write up and photos another chat with Clive to day and let\'s go

The reason I am doing Or going down this road is I put so much in to the project over the years and having look around at other car,s for what I could get for the 8 at the moment is about £8500.00 so with the £8000 spend that\'s £ 16.5k so what\'s out there as a one off for that price and the power and the drop dead good looks of an RX-8   NOTHING !,,
