    Default RX-8 with swapped 1.6 EFI engine?

    I was just thinking if it would be possible to buy an RX-8 for 12-13 lacs (2003-04) model and swap its original engine with a 1.6 EFI engine for better fuel consumption? Not really interested in original RX-8 as I know I will never be able to afford its fuel but a swapped 1.6 EFI engine's fuel will be affordable. I know it won't be a 'sports' car anymore but it will be an RX-8 (just not performance wise).

    Has anyone done this before?

    You'd end up with a trans$exual RX8... looks like the real deal but good for neither job.

    Don't even think for a moment that a 1.6l engine, in a 1.4 tonne car, would give you any sort of fuel economy. It'd be severely underpowered and you won't get more than 6,7 km/l, as far as I can see.
