Ok another small chance hypothetical thread; I have the opportunity to purchase a 2005 RX-8 with high mileage. The chassis, interior, body, etc is perfect, but being a high mileage Renesis it could use a new engine. So... does anyone know of any kits for an engine swap? SR20, LSx, etc? How about rebuilt "built" Renesis? Any place to get them? Has anyone actually done a swap? I am looking for a backyard weekend mechanic job. I can get LSx parts galore for cheap too. Engines and transmissions for it are not an issue. Basically I was thinking about buying this RX-8 driving it till it breaks and then either fixing it or swapping something less rotary () in it.
Pretty damn clean.
