would love some more info on this. Im just in the process of stripping my RX8 ready to start the swap, but would be very interested in this if it makes my life easier. I used a Hinson kit for my rx7, and was very happy with it.

Brian, I messaged you through your website, but I haven't received a reply, am I better off emailing directly or something, or messaging you on here? Im in the UK so its difficult to call at a convenient time.

How can there be no pictures or information? Does anyone have a running V8 rx8? How does it effect handling and will it work well on the track?

I'm curious about this as well.  I'm planning on doing a FD RX7 LS1 build but friends have been suggesting I go with the RX8 chassis since it was designed to be more rigid than the RX7 and parts aren't as rare as the FD's.  The RX8 weighs a good couple hundred pounds heavier though...  I'm curious to see build photos. :)

We are in a production run, and some products have been shipped to various customers around world for builds. We are finalizing the pieces we will make for mass production and the level of support for the build. We are working to avoid long delays on future orders by not taking orders until every kink has been worked out. We understand this approach may cost us sales, but we are will only take orders when we are prepared to offer the level of customer support required and quick delivery times. In the long run, it may shrink our audience but give those customers a better experience.

Thank you,

Hi Brian

I had recently contacted you about the conversion kit and understand your not producing at the moment. Could you help by letting me know if the factory sump from a L98/77 6.0lt motor will work or do you have a sump you can sell to me?

I have just stripped my donor car and soon will begin the conversion.

Thank you.
H

The car that we are driving here at the shop has a FBody oil pan on it.

Any further information on kit availability? I'd happily take emailed documents if the website is still a ways off.

Thankx.
