This adapter plate was designed to bolt a Ford i4 16v 2.0l/2.3l engine to an rx8 gearbox using as many of the engines standard parts as possible. It utilizes the engines original engines sump/flywheel and clutch from a mk5 rs2000 16v engine . You will need to use a LRS707 starter motor. A 2.0l/2.3l rwd sump can used be but some of the cooling fins on the side of the sump will need to be dressed back to clear the starter motor.
In most cases it is possible to use the rx8 clutch arm slave cylinder and release bearing with very little work, but In some cases the clutch arm pivot point height might need adjusting to suit. We recomend mocking this up out of the car. The bolt pitch tapped in the adapter plate is M10x1.5mm
