Hey it has been quite some time since I've been here, but we've been pretty busy here!
CJ - Yes, that is the back end of an RX-8, and it is also the reason there has not been much progress on the Rav...
A couple of months back, some idiot reversed out of his drive into the side of it while we were stopped at a red light.
While it was at the shop getting fixed, the painter flooded the engine and collapsed the starter bearings trying to crank it, so it went to the mechanic on a truck.
He pulled the starter, looked at the motor and saw the apex seals were gone, so we decide to rebuild the rotors...
Turns out the housings and rotors were past it so we sourced a motor from Japan and just got the car back last week.
So this week I'm back on the 3VZFE project and have made a little progress, I'll try to get a picture uo today!
