SHOOOW ME THE WAY TO GO HOME! I'M TIRED AND I WANT TO GO TO BED!

I've developed a desire for a new project that is destined to get out of hand
Stuffing a Jaguar V6 into an RX-8.

Rx8 is a wankel normally?
Should make packaging a bit of a laugh.

You'd be surprised
Long bonnet so there's more room than you'd think, and the Jag V6 is quite compact. Trouble is, it's either a custom propshaft or a custom flywheel job.

How would the 'lectrics work?
Aren't they all ECU-d up now with all the central locking and alarm integrated into the brains of the engine or wotnot?

Sounds like a hoot tho!

this is the best bit
the blog I read had a bloke making a cross-talk CANBUS interface with Arduinos. Arduinos! I know what those are!

Sounds like witchcraft

it is pretty magical
It's the sort of stuff I detested when I started mechanicking because it was "all computers", but now I see how clever it all is.

I understood "wank" and "shaft".
