I saw that, thanks though.

I'm thinking along the lines of modifying the compressor housing, grinding on the block a little and then maybe one spacer. freaking mitsu, would have been really nice of them to make this work out of the box. had they not made 2g/evo intake ports smaller, then moved the injectors to the intake manifold on the evo, the intake manifold would be a direct bolt on. Good engineers try to plan for fun interchangeability, bad engineers dont plan for modular designs and make things annoying.

Yes, you can probably get away with grinding away the compressor housing and grinding the block. I just preferred the extra spacer because it would involve less wrestling with parts. Be sure to take pictures when you do this work, because I would love to see how you end up doing it.

This is 1991 Galant VR4 # 1821/2000 about to be scrapped. Naturally I got it to the scrap man in the back of the 4G63 Dodge Ram 50. It was a lovely last 4G63 powered ride for the sad old rotted Vr4...

So it was windy in Massachusetts on November 24th 2013, and a tree fell in my yard, and hit my truck. The hood is beat up, but the rest survived.

It protected the RX-8, so it wasn't in vain.
It still sucks though. :(

Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

damn that's very unexpected man! good luck with your sale, like they said its worth every penny and much more!! Though I will say this, when its gone you will regret it almost daily. Im not trying to be a debby downer, just speaking from experience ( and mine didn't have nearly as much time in it as yours does!!!!)

Someone is going to get one hell of a truck! will it come with a copy of the magazine??????

If you pay full price, it will come with a copy of the magazine ;) I may regret selling it some day, but if I do sell it, it gives me opportunity to build other stuff, which allows me to learn more. That's what I'm ultimately after!
