Not the most expensive part but by far the nicest. Kinda sad these aren't going to be seen much #minifd #keislerautomation #aluminumallthethings

Love the feeling of this shifter😌 #keislerautomation #keisler #cobalt #ss

Corner balance and alignment on the z06 truck this morning. #alignment #cornerbalance #chassisprep #keislerautomation

If you're in the East Tennessee or surrounding areas and need an alignment go to @a_keisler07! He does amazing work and always takes care of me! Thank again man! #miata #miatamonday #keislerautomation

Coming in under 3k on weight and @a_keisler07 was able to get the cross weight to 50%! Super pumped to have this thing solid for the year. Now to beat the shit out of it. #wildrunning #keislerautomation #cornerbalance #function. #kindawishitwasslammedtho

"600 HP" axles and hubs arrived today, so now I have all the pieces for the 8.8" rear! (3.9:1 gear set and Monster Miata modified subframe not shown). Thanks Andrew @ #KeislerAutomation, Shandelle @ #V8Roadsters, Sean @ #OSGiken, and Martin @ #MonsterMiata.

new parts from the U.S.
How beautiful!

秘密の部品がアメリカから届きました。
5年くらい前から探していた類の部品。かなり理想的。

Word of the day- rust. I'm about to play fabricator and build the body rails back for @preston_leslie on his jeep. #fabrication #keislerautomation #jeep #rustsucks

This may look like a fairly boring photo, but a lot of effort resides here. Custom aluminum CV style driveshaft built by The Driveshaft Shop, custom splined sway bar built by Speedway engineering, and custom length and splined CV axle shafts by Dutchman Axles. All of these components are for the LFX RX8 swap kit. Configuring these components took weeks of R/D before putting in the orders for these 3 utmost talented companies to work their magic. #keislerautomation #cnc #cncmachining #engineswap #engineering #thedriveshaftshop #lfx #rx8 #lfx8 #mazda #zoomzoom

I've been trying to hold off on posting pictures regarding my business for the last year to keep from annoying you guys, but this one is pretty special to me. Practically all of my products leave the state and half of the time the country, but I'm pleased to see this set staying right here in Knoxville. These will be coupled to a very reputable and extremely fast local autocross car. Being in such a niche market with only the most highly prepped cars using said parts, I'm humbled every time a sale is made. Having a personal relationship with someone that is willing to believe in your product is that much sweeter. #keislerautomation #mazda #miata #mx5 #eunos #zoomzoom #roadster #roadracing #autocross #nasa #scca #dropspindles #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #engineering #fabrication #cncporn

Today consisted of fabricating jigs and making prototype engine mount towers for the LFX RX8 swap. Notice the aluminum pucks that are incorporated into the jig. These bolt in from the bottom and are used so that if dimension on the engine mount tower needs to be changed slightly, a new puck can be machined or modified to compensate in either X, Y, or Z dimensions. This allows for relatively easy modification as opposed to making a whole new jig. #keislerautomation #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #fabrication #lfx #lfxswap #engineswap #lfxrx8 #rx8 #mazda #zoomzoom

We just wrapped up a complete NA/NB Miata spherical bearing installation for a customer in California. This was a one day turn around on removing the factory bushings, reaming all 22 bushing bores centric and to size, and installation of the spherical assemblies. All the customer will have to do is place them on the car. #keislerautomation #sphericalbearings #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #engineering #machining #suspension #miata #mazda #zoomzoom #roadster #mx5 #eunos

Whittling these RX8/LFX swap structural differential covers from nearly 70 pounds to 3.8. These covers allow the 5th Gen camaro diffs to mount in the RX8 rear crossmember without any modification. #keislerautomation #LFX8 #rx8 #mazda #zoomzoom #swapkit #cnc #cncmachining #engineering #cncporn

Keisler Automation NA/NB miata spherical bearing assemblies installed into a rear upper control arm. #keislerautomation #cnc #cncmachining #engineering #mx5 #mazda #miata #eunos #roadster #suspension #sphericalbearings

Here is another snap on the underside. #keislerautomation #LFX8 #zoomzoom #mazda #rx8 #norotors #lfx #swapkit

Rx8 LFX swap shifter assemblies are complete. This is the kind of quality and detail that is represented throughout the whole swap kit. #keislerautomation #rx8 #LFX8 #mazda #norotors #zoomzoom #swapkit #lfx

Machined lower engine mount plate which mounts to the OEM rx8 crossmember and polyurethane puck. These are used in conjuction with my last photo. #keislerautomation #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #cncporn #mazda #rx8 #lfx #lfx8 #zoomzoom #engineswap #engineering #fabrication

Here is a 3d printed engine mount tower for the LFX RX8 swap kit. These components will be laser cut from chromoly tube and plate. Before having the batch of components cut and fixtures built, it is wise to have the components printed as an assembly to check fitment.
The polyurethane puck and lower mounting plate will reside underneath the side closest to the camera. #keislerautomation #rx8 #lfx #mazda #zoomzoom #norotors #lfx8 #keislerautomation ##3dprinting

Here is another NA/NB miata control arm shot before I flood you with LFX RX8 pictures for the next few months. #keislerautomation #mazda #miata #roadster #eunos #zoomzoom #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #cncporn #engineering #fabrication #controlarms #aluminumcontrolarms

Yet another NA/NB miata 5 lug set leaving the country. Since I started offering the 5 lug adapter plates in July, there has been 5 orders internationally and 1 within the country. Yet most of my regular sales are in the country. There must be a large calling for 5 lug miata race cars over seas. Shown here is the Timken 350z front hub assemblies, custom adapter plates, and modified front drop spindles. I have specifically engineered these to have the same hub face offset as oem in order to keep kingpin angles and scrub radius where they should be. #keislerautomation #5lugconversion #5lugmiata #mazda #miata #eunos #roadster #zoomzoom #dropspindles #roadracing #trackdaybro #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #cncporn #fabrication #engineering

Here is a shot of our NA/NB lower control arms with electroless nickel plating. The plating is so thin and precise that the tool marks are still highly visible. These arms are equipped with our innovative spherical bearing assemblies. This set will be headed off to @yetiracing as soon as our ups man can make it through the snow! #mazda #miata #mx5 #zoomzoom #lowercontrolarms #billetaluminum #machining #engineer #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #cncporn #gofast #trackdaybro #keislerautomation #electrolessnickel

First operation complete on this steering rack offset bracket for the lfx rx8 swap kit. These are now in production, as the prototypes were made about 1 year ago. The right side (shown) needs a clearance relief for a round dimension on the rack, so a simple 3d tool path was used instead of adding another operation cutting in 2.5D. Material: 7075 t-6 #keislerautomation #rx8 #lfx #lfx8 #swapkit #cnc #cncmachining #engineering #fabrication #cncporn #steering

This probably looks like a pretty basic part to you non machinists out there, but this one was pretty tricky to secure for the 2nd op and a custom fixture was built for the 3rd operation. Corner radius on all the edges and chamfers around the holes. Once again, this is a push rod that is part of the shifter assembly for the RX8 LFX swap kit. I wanna mistress for Christmas 🤘🤘😂 All hail AC dixie! #keislerautomation #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #cncporn #engineswap #engineering #mazda #rx8 #lfx #camaro #LFX8 #swapkit

Here is a picture that shows no justice. I'm currently about 30 hours deep configuring a complete plug and play harness that uses both the GM ecu and Mazda ECU for the RX8/lfx swap kit. This will allow a seamless installation along with all of the factory gauges working as they should. It's always best to put the effort into a project upfront to save your customers time and frustration. #keislerautomation #rx8 #lfx #lfxswap #drivetrainswap #mazda #zoomzoom
