I think what you're seeing is the weld on the V-Band clamp to cone. Does look like a crack so I can see why you were wondering. No cracks though.
Also need to add, I bought the car I'm going to try to put the 4 cylinder into when the time comes. A co-worker of my son wanted to buy a new Mustang. She had a 2006 Mazda RX8 but no one wanted to give her any trade in value so she offered it up to me for $2500. 2006 RX8 body great with some paint fading from the sun. Interior good, 96,000 miles on the original engine, 6 speed trans. I haven't driven it yet, waiting for insurance and tags. Car weight is about 2800 lbs and should be well under 3000 with the engine and T-56 conversion. I'm going to drive it and have fun with it until the motor is done and ready. I still have to adapt it to the T-56 and adapt a starter to it. Then figure out an EFI system. I've been told that a Cobalt ecu and wiring harness adapts well to engine conversions and easily tuned.
I'll have to start looking into it. Hagerty Classic car will insure it and if you insure a car here in AZ, then use of the Classic Car Insurance allows you to bypass emissions testing. If that's true then a conversion will be a snap. Will know soon.

Just a quick update. We tried to get the cam sync to read in the Megasquirt MS3 Pro but we had no luck. Something must be wrong onside the ecm. Bad connection, wrong solder connection or???? We're going to try to contact some Megasquirt experts for help. Wish us luck.

On a side note. I shut down the 4 cylinder project. Turned out the splayed four bolt caps I got that came from the IA block were just to much to adapt. So the added expense was just enough to cancel the whole project. Dropping the big 4 cylinder into the RX8and the fact that it would be low on low end torque and all the factors (not to mention the heavy weight of the big old block) made me stop. I'll let someone with deeper pockets have all the fun. Sorry Charlie for dropping out. I've picked up an LS1 aluminum short block and I have a 4.8 crank to make a 330 ( I believe) short stroke LS. There's lots of parts available, many tuning opportunities/systems and that short stroke little LS should be really fun in the Mazda.
