Here's a modified version of Andrew Stuart's 'Weekly unsolvable' - an 11.3, but I added enough to knock it down to an 8.3

lcls to 28
//XW(5)cf67 => -5 b67.i6
1. (5)f6=c6-(5=2)c7-g7=i78-(2=46)bi6 =>-6f6 lcls to 50
//Kite (2)i8=a8-c7=c6 =>-2i6

SE 8.3 seems overrated (by SE...)

The Multifish or its all cells complementary in the initial puzzle doesn't disappear with the added clues since the initial puzzle has a unique solution. Therefore, the puzzle is now solved 'basics' to the end :

3 singles; UP28
Multifish (1249)Rows2679 -> -{4b49, 2c5, 9c3, 6d6, 7e2, 1f13, 9f3, 3g7, 6h6, 2i45, 4i4}; UP42
NP(56)i45; UP50; XWing{2c67, 2i68} -> -{2a8, 2g7}; UP81

Same as cenoman. SSTS to UP27
w X-wing (5)cf67 -> -5b67i6; UP28.
#1 (6)c8=c6-f6=f13-(6=1)d1-a1=(14)b27-(14=6)b6 -> -6c6; UP50.
#2 turbot (2)i8=a8-c7=c6 -> -2i6; UP81.
