Crazy is an understatement. If you had cash coming out of your toilet then by all means, give it a whirl. There would be so much electrical crap you would have to work out it woud be insane. You could have one fast *** car for the amount of money it would take to do that.

**edit**



The only EMS that can comtrol the Renesis that I know of is the Motec M-800. That is what speedsource is using on its RX-8's.



- Sorry for whatever reason I looked at the thread title and saw 13b-REW.



I am loosing it.

The cheapest I have seen them is about 5000. Maybe he can get a deal or something.

I was pondering this as well (not thinking of actually doing it - money is, unfortunately, not coming out of my toilet). I was thinking the easiest way to do it would be to replace things with RX-8 parts (wiring and electrical systems, etc.), only using the 2nd gen parts when it was practical. While it may not be the best way to do it, it seems like the easiest... but I dunno, there's a huge chance I'm wrong.
