LS2 rx8 build in Aus
This is my build thread on my rx8. I bought it stock 10 years ago. It then went through several family members before i reunited with it, with a seized motor.
During the first round of modifications i did the following:
Rotary motorsport built renesis
Everything brand new in the motor
exhaust ports opened up
Dowled the motor
2inch header pipe merging into 2.75in collector
3inch exhaust with custom made rear muffler
Racing Beat intake
Mazmart water pump
Mazmart low temp thermo stat
Bigger and thicker alloy rad (chinese type)
Brand New gt spec 6 speed box
Heavy duty clutch
Series 2 fuel pump and assembly modified for series 1 fuel tank
White line Adjustable Coilovers (complete catalog)
White line Sway bars
Race Brake prads on factory calipers and discs (Works fine, no brake fad at all)
(i dont know the brands, my mechanic has details)
Light weight non adjustable drivers seat
6 point harness
removal of rear interior

I then sold the running gear and purchased a Holden 2013 6.0lt ss manual ute that was smashed. I stripped it for its running gear and everything i needed.
I then proceeded to purchase the following:
ls kit from lsrx8.com
new head gasket
new clutch and flywheel
dod delete kit
bigger cam (i think it is 224/232) i will have to check the specs
i also shaved the heads a little for more compression.
Currently we have just fitted the motor and box, next week the headers will be getting made.
The car is my weekend toy and is being built is a track toy to do weekend sprints, hill climbs and any motor event i can enter. It will be street legal and engineered.
Its an ongoing project that will never end. How ever it takes all my money that id like to spend on my c63.
