8HP is like a 2JZ of transmissionsTell me more about the ZF8. I love that transmission. Will it fit in the stock tunnel? If so, I might make some plans.
yes. will be shortly. Just over 3K milesIs your stock engine for sale tho 🤣
LOLI am a software engineer, have a bit of experience with CAN protocol, but really most of my knowledge is outdated from the OBD-II era (I was an avid member of the carputer or car-pc community which predated current infotainment systems) we used to integrate OBD-II data into the systems..
Before settling on ordering the gr86, I was thinking about doing an electric conversion on an rx8 with a completely custom CAN bus setup. Ordered a Arduino based development kit, but never pulled the trigger on the project. Was planning on hooking it up to the gr86 when it arrives to see what the possibilities might be, but did not really have a plan yet.
Not sure if I will be much help but will be watching the thread, interested to see how things progress!
Honestly a potato would be better than that auto transCurious about the 8-speed. The FA24D engine has a wide flat torque curve that's not peaky, and the vehicle isn't a lumbering heavyweight...not the usual conditions where an 8-speed is deployed.
Im not using the FA engine so this doenst apply to me but you have to look at shift times and all the other cool things these can doCurious about the 8-speed.

maybe it would help to stay away from the dipActually answered my own dumb question, lol. You're not using the FA24D!
What makes u say that? Im not having a shop do this. Biggest expense is the ECUOh he got money money..
I was talking about the subaru transThe ZF8 is insanely quick and accurate. I don't know where you're coming from.
It is good and it will be for sale shortlyLooks good so far.
I forgot to ask if the original engine in the project car was blown or if it was good and you're using the sale of it to help finance the swap.
BC custom coilovers will take care of thatLooks great, but that is a SUBSTANTIAL center of mass shift. I imagine the original suspension isn't going to hold up - probably need some custom spring rates.
too early to sayHow much of a difference are you looking at for hood clearance?
