I purchased an RX-8 race car built by Louie and Tony Rivera. I am going to use the drive train from my RX-7 so I have the following items available. This is perfect for somebody with an RX-8 roller.. plug and play. Top of the line everything.

- Luis Rivera built motor with ceramic apex seals, 5 hours on motor since refreshed by Kan Tuning.

- Motec M-800 ECU. Tuned for existing motor.

- Motec ADL Dash.

- Wire harness for MoTeC, and ADL dash

- Racing Beat intake.

- New (one dyno run) Mazda Series II, 6-speed transmission with new shifter & throw out bearing

- One race weekend on 5.11 differential with OE limited slip (REM treated) set up by Jesse Prather Motorsports

- Tilton 5.5” clutch, with new, disks, floater and pressure plate.

- New lightweight aluminum racing flywheel.

- Black Halo Racing coils.

- Racing Exhaust (header, mid pipe, muffler)

- Drive shaft

I'd like to sell as a complete package but will part out if there are no takers.

Feel free to call.

I'll add that the car is in my shop and when I remove the engine and transmission I will keep the wiring harness complete so it really can be directly installed into another RX8. I can also take pictures and text or email them to a prospective buyer.
I believe the engine has Ianetti ceramic apex seals and can attest the engine runs great.

How much work to install this in a Saturn?

Steve, you are making me search Craigslist for an RX-8 donor...

Thank you,

I can attest as well that this engine runs great, and made good power. I have another Renesis motor in my shop that I can make arrangements to get to Hallett, or perhaps Topeka, and will sell very inexpensively to the buyer of this complete package. Video of this drivetrain at full song heading to turn one at COTA.
