What are the next 3 numbers in the sequence?

8, 6, 96, 047, 10803, 424, 878, 3, 9171, 98838, 7240, ?, ?, ?

The sequence will go on indefinitely, and I tried to design it to be difficult. Notice "047" kept the leading 0....it is significant/needed.

Good Luck

Spoiler for hint


Spoiler for One additional question...for after you find out the sequence

I was thinking that the Fibbonacci series was involved with this after you basically told us that Pi was. But then I still couldn't see the answer. This was a really good one, but a bit too tough (for me at least)

Yes , EventHorizon. This was a really tough one but nevertheless a great one. I tried solving it but could not arrive at a solution. :)
