Default de-noobing....

hey I am Ian i just traded for a 04 non running rx8 with a fresh rebuild and im trying to reach out for help because i would love to drive around and race a rotary in autocross!

but this is what i am at im just totally at a loss,
I have spark, fuel pressure, and compression ( covered the intake with my hand while it was turning over and it tried to suck my hand in.) i just changed out the crank position sensor because it wasnt putting out very much voltage.. So i am at a loss any help will be awesome. it also has a massive coolant leak i put it up on jack stands while i was working on it and tried to start it i put like 1 and a half gallons of 50/50 coolant in it so if i got it started i could try to keep it running. well all of the coolant has been dripping out for the last 4 days covering the shop floor.

Also the starter doesnt seem like it is spinning high enough rpms to get it started. i also read on one of these forms to put some 2 stroke oil in the cylinders and spin it around to try to get the engine to start. i also dragged it around a bit went from 1-6th gear about 20 mph....

thanks again!
