I'm not too sure on the specs of that particular Kicker, but if it calls for being sealed, any air leaks will kill the sound. A free-air woofer may fit the bill a little better. Kicker used to make a free-air woofer. Basically a free-air woofer has a stiffer suspension, letting it control itself, rather than relying on the box for control.
I just did a quick overview at Kicker.com. That looks like a pretty good woofer for the area you have available. Just make sure its sealed REALLY well.
HOW are you fitting an 8" diameter Kicker cvr Sub (which is PRECISELY what I have!) into the stock area from the ridiculous OEM 2 1/2 inch sub?? My box, which barely extends past the edges of the sub, encroaches by 3-4 inches into the top's "well" and I need to "clear" the top by pushing it out around the sub-box every time I put it down. Are you going SIDEWAYS?? Otherwise I don't get the dimensions...
I do like the LOOK of the thing you are planning though - and recall, I donlt have a cover on my sub and it jumps just fine!
ah my boosted friend...i am going with one of the new 8'' Kicker CVT subs they are shallow mounting subs, so they dont have to go in as deep, i have your picture printed and am going to tell the sound guy that i DONT want my lid to look like that, i use the top cover alot and it seems ur sub setup would not alow it to fit rigght...and...wait...what....you have an 8'' sub??? i was always under the impresion you had a 10'' kicker???
well anyways, yes, im going with an 8'' kicker cvt, ill let you know how it thumps when i get it, ill be doing the wiring for it on friday when they remove the top since ill have easy access in there and save $$$ on the amp installation and wont have to worry if theyll fuck up something trying to route wires from the cabin into the trunk....the power and ground are a breeze in these cars...damn i love having the battery in the trunk
i still want to see a picture of whats UNDER your sub dude...i want to know if they sealed off everything like i am going to do, or whether they made a custom box
also, you seem to have the cash...did you never check the options from roadstersound.com ???? it would look way cleaner than what you have now and still have an 8'' sub....im just too poor to blow that kind of cash on a sub box...

As long as you seal the box (i.e. no leaks), it should be ok. If it is a plastic chamber, you will want it as rigid as possible too. If not you will have rattles. If you have the room in the chamber you are talking about, you can line the inside with wood to make it more rigid. The less power your woofer uses to "move" the enclosure, the more sound output you will get too.
Calculate the volume you have, compare that to what the woofer requires. If its clsoe dont worry about it. If you do need some, loosely drop small handfuls in the box. Dont go over half of the enclosure. It does help if your box is too small. It fools the speaker into thinking its in a slightly bigger box and it'll play lower frequencies. Maybe by 10% or so. Not a real noticeable difference to the ear, but the woofer will be happier.
Oh yeah, eat more Taco Bell cinnamon twists, that helps...
