very sick project.. you should also paint it up and make it look completely stock when your done.. would make a sweet sleeper
The porsche calipers are radial mount, so you have to make your own adapters for these... but because they are radial mount you can use any diameter rotor you like.more info on the porshe/rx8 brakes. Does everything just bolt on? If it does that would be one hell of an upgrade for us normal people. (non v8)
Yeah many people don't realize how much other stuff there is to do, i could get this v8 running in the bay in a matter of hours, but it won't work as a car.I have used a supra TT pump on mine, which flows more and quiet.... i am not a fan of the noisy walbro!I am glad you mentioned that Paul. I think not enough people realize that just upgrading to a V8 is not enough. Other parts of the car need upgrading for the additional power.
Also, the fuel pump needs upgrading, possibly the radiator as well.
If you put in a decent radiator, good set of fans and reduce pipework restrictions to a minimum you won't need the electric pump.paul woods said:Also i am ripping out ALL of the stock radiator pipework and upgrading to something with a bigger bore and also an inline electric water pump to keep it flowing at idle... i suspect the engines pump is not going to be enough if left to idle and it will heatsoak badly.I have an ally rad going up front too just in case the stocker lets me down.
