    Nay bother dude! If it's any help, the radiator I used in my last RX8 when I built it is the same one @Colin used in his car from memory: a relatively inexpensive alu rad that fits perfectly & has more capacity than the standard unit. Made by a crowd called "Supeed" I think, their ebay name was "provenperformanceparts" if that helps.

    HELP!!! with car insurance

    It's probably a bit late at this stage but if you get the rejection of insurance from 3+ companies in writing you can go to the insurance ombudsman & see if they can help you. Your current insurer is (from memory) obliged to insure you if you change the car mid-year, what they charge you however is the question.

    I don't know of anyone that has done it over here but if you do I'd love to see the build thread of it. I know Rennies don't like boost in general, many design reasons why, but you can build an engine (comprised of previous generations of RX7 parts) that can run forced induction reliably. It'd be a lot bigger of a project than just adding the bolt-ons though.

    How's the engine now Aido?
  5. This. ^^ The people doing exhaust peri-ports on their Rennie engines might look at the housings if they were aware of them. Also, pics of the housings/plates might help people along.
  6. For anyone interested, the readings normalised to 250rpm (without taking into account atmospheric pressure/elevation) are: Front: 6.60bar, 6.33bar, 6.41bar Rear: 7.54bar, 7.47bar, 7.54bar Free bump for an awesome-looking & very rare RX8! Best of luck with the sale John!

  8. Any pics of which wing you mean specifically? As in the wing you'd find on a Bathurst Edition FD? (...which may be a stock 1996-98 wing..?)

    Wanted: FD3S Shell

    Would you not sell them your RZ or is that out of their price range for what they want?

    Oil pans

    New or used ones? You can find GReddy uprated one with baffles & a larger capacity on eBay & in any of the Japanese shops & some US ones listed in the shops sticky. Used ones, look at breakers or ask Shadow (Dublin)/Rotorsport (NI) or any of the other tuning shops if they've any in good nick that they'd be willing to sell. Or put up a wanted ad here & on the FB page.

    Coolant leak

    This ^^. If pliers or the like won't allow you to twist out the plug then drill it out carefully & replace it with another.
