Yep,

Very noticeable in the mid range, much more useable and a lot more torque. Don't have to drop 2 gears to accelerate away any more.

I must be one of the only people in the world who don't like the look of the RX-7 or I would get one lol

If I can get FI with decent power gains for less than it would cost for a decent 911-996 after selling the RX8 then I will definitely stick with it. I suspect I'll be looking around £5k?

Yeah probably. A serious undertaking!

I am very lukewarm on the looks of the RX7 myself. From the front it looks good but I hate the rear and that interior has not aged well. I prefer the 8 in the looks department. Think it still looks great. Especially a S1 with an aero kit like yours and Yorkies!

That's great to hear on the performance front. You must be delighted with that extra power! Is she more economical now too or around about the same?

Economy wise it's hard to tell due to the way I drive lol.

The LeMans trip netted 18.3MPG over 1055 miles which considering how much we thrashed it, is pretty good I thought.

I had 27 when I moved house slipstreaming behind the lorry at 56 from Nottingham to Devon but we can't count that lol

I guess I am still happy to see 200+ miles from a tank.

Refill amount and mileage from the trip below, the 59L refill was very close! :thumleft:

40l 150
20l 98
55l 210
31l 108
59l 218
41l 199
16l 65

18 when caning it? I was getting 15 in mixed driving! :lol: :lol: :lol: I'd be delighted with that economy! Now you have the power the 8 deserves. Well done my friend =D>

The LeMans trip sounds like a blast. Any pics?

You must be very happy you went with that half bridge! Since yours has turned out so well, Ben will probably replace the street port with the half bridge from now on!

Picked this up today from Martin the guy I did the swap with. Mitchell from this forum is coming to look at it on Wednesday. I have truly missed it and it is a great looking car, almost bought it back for myself :D

I hooe he buys it and it stays on here as I have enjoyed every minute of it and it was nice to have a last short drive :thumleft:
