unfortunately that 6 speed is going to shatter like glass behind that new power plant. you will probably want to at least adapt an FD or TII transmission in there and lose the extra gear(not like it's necessary with as much power as it looks like you will have). i can see the RX8 exhaust hanger on it.

nice build but that stood out for me.

Super sick build! You seem to have all the tools, space, and knowledge to accomplish such a swap in a professional manner and that's awesome to see. No half-assing here! I'll keep tabs on the build, love the progress being made

This build makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, probably because I'd love to do an 8 like this. Looks sweet and beastly.
