Paul, you considered coming to the Castle Combe JDM day? We share the clubstand MRC with RX8club...its usually a big stand and really friendly and lots of the rx8 owners are gonna be well interested in your car...
Its totally informal and all welcome theres no snobbery just a bit of banter here and there.  Chance to meet a few faces on here too. If theres 1 show its JDM combe best of the year.

It seems to be running a little lean under light acceleration.
Any ideas? Went down to 16 at one point

I'm wondering if the rx8 fuel pressure reg will swap over

Going to source a rx8 fuel pressure reg unless any one has one spare?
I'm going to seal up all the holes on the pop off grille thing. It pops off inside the housing. The cap doesn't rise up like the rx8 one. Reg pressure is a lot less from what I can tell
