Notes for me:

NA & NB have the same back housing pattern and 35mm X 20/22 spline (22/2 missing). Type 9/RX8 are 25 spline and 35mm; rear section different (RX7 might be OK).
Lever moved 4" forward.

If the engine needs moving back doesn’t that mess up your gear lever position again?

Not sure if it’ll all get done before March but that’s the aim.

Without the blower should be 130-ish bhp. With this blower then maybe 180-200 or so with no lag. Not decided on pulley ratio yet.

Hence the reason for a cage...
