Their website shows them in stock and ready to ship. Pricing is updated as well.

Yeah I noticed this as well.  I would like to know the details on the modifications to the steering rack setup.These RX8's seem to be popping up everyewhere with blown motors and lemon law recalls... this would be such a fun little swap.

I'm working on the pricing for the non-listed parts today. I hope to have all the pricing and descriptions completed during the holiday break. I simply haven't been able to complete the posting, and that is why we're looking to hire a full time web developer.

We do have some pictures to post. They will show the level of modification and welding required. It isn't anything like what is shown above. We use a nice CNC aluminum bracket, urethane engine mounts, and nice stamped brackets to weld to the crossmember.

Thanks guys.  :cheers:

We are shipping LSx V8 RX8 mounting kits now. We have also completed the production of the cooling system, exhaust, electronics, clutch hydraulics, and more.

Our shop car has hundreds of miles on it now, and you're welcome to visit for a test drive at any time.

Thanks,

Hinson, could you please post up some pictures of the kit-installed in the car? I want to see how much room there is for the abs and etc. As I'm overseas, I would've loved to come by there and take it for a ride. Could you please send me any additional info as your site doesn't really have that much info and no pics. Spyrstas@yahoo.com      Thank you very much!

We have been shipping these units to shops around the country for a couple months. Some of them are doing write-ups and others are not so tech savy.

We're updating the site this week on some fashion or another! We regret that it has take so long to post, but the information is available. Thanks!

Sure would like some more info on this. I went to your site to see if maybe you put up some build pics or at least had a link to some, but there are none.

Just an FYI for everyone. I called Brian and asked him about this. The kit has been completed. It's just the website hasn't been updated. It covers everything from electronics to the exhaust.

The swap isn't direct bolt-on like it is for the Rx7 though, it does require some welding/fabbing.
