This engine build is being done due to the fact that its almost done 50,000 miles on the clock and so i feel i have had its optimum life span now and i want to keep the car also when the new engine has been built i will still have a old engine that will be built to the same specks as the new build so i will have one on the shelf as a spare!!!
My HKS ECU is an F-Con IS and its running well below 8 psi, (so plenty of room to expand my build ) The fuel pump will be a walbro 225 and this is being fitted to omit intermit-ant delivery over 7800rpm with the set up i have, we have plans to beef up some of the internals and street port and supercharge the engine.
Also i intend to fit one of these Mazda RX8 OIL SYSTEM UPGRADE KIT
04-08 RX-8 Racing Beat Uprated Oil Pressure Regulator - 90-95 PSI plus Thermal Bypass Pellet Replacement kit so you know the oil is properly getting to the places it should all around the engine as part of the build.
The new aluminium radiator with the better racing beat oil cooler lines will also help in cooling. plus up rated water pump, a bespoke ram air system working off two 55mm ram air pumps to help with air flow from the superchargers intercoolers through to the the cars radiator, plus air flow over and past the exhaust manifold.
A slightly different exhaust system RACING BEAT 3" STRAIGHT THROUGH SILENCED DE-CAT PIPE
The engine will have my old map in at first but will be remapped as we go along
when i first started the build some 6 years ago, it was a project with belts and braces, and even on its third engine second supercharger this present set up has been running for the last 18 months at up and around the middle 350 BHP there was still plenty of performance left how ever i still want to get performance, fuel economy, and engine longevity, as a daily driver, I now feel the way we intend to go the below quoted BHP might be able to obtain if not i still will have one hell of a road car.
I have got some of the donor engine stripped down, the main bulk of it will be sent to clive to hold till we start the build the rest of it will be worked on by me
I am hoping for around 370 to 390 BHP again of 30 BHP would be nice and i think not asking to much
the plan is to run mine till the new engine is built then swop out some of the periphery and add the parts that in am doing and add a refurbished supercharger
hoping the car should not be off the road for more than two weeks also when the engine is out this will be the time to add all the add on,s and give the engine bay a good overhaul.
As we progress i will post up some facts figures and plenty of photos of the build
I do not have the knowledge of all the rotary as sum but there are a lot of clever people out there willing to give me a hand in this new venture.
I am a person that likes to do it, get it done, show its working, and then talk about it.
spent so far £3570.00 total build cost for what i want around £8000.00
And why not you carn,t take your money with you and i might die tomorrow but at least in my retirement i am doing what i wanted to do and thats have fun
sorry for any bad grammar or spelling mistakes but i don\'t care that much either.
