Update: This project has been completed and here is a video of it doing a email@example.com 1/4 mile.
Update2: The owner was kind enough to expand more on this build in the comments below. I have updated the article to reflect his comments.
Update3: Hinson Super Cars is currently developing a RX-8 LS engine swap kit.
Here is a RX-8 out of Iceland with a 2004 GTO LS1 swap. The project took 3 weeks complete in the owner’s spare time. The project began after the RX-8 had a blown engine. The engine mounts are custom and they could only use the header from the right side of a Camaro. The left side had to be custom built. Also used is a stock 4.44 differential and a Camaro steering rack and oil pan. Overall the car weights 3240 pounds, with 53.2% bias upfront. The owner is still trying to figure out how to get the gauge cluster to function.
I know there is some interest in a kit for this type of swap. Lets hope someone makes one.
