  4. Back in the saddle again! Or as Willie Nelson sings “On the road again…!” Well to finish of this topics heading, it was all down do a badly rebuilt engine lasting only 12,776 miles. I did get to educate myself a lot over the past few months about how everything inside the engine bay is connected and gave me a change to remove and clean out various parts that I’d never done before i.e. SSV, VDI, Injectors, Throttle Body, Fuel Pump etc., and testing the ECU connectors all in vain trying to diagnose the problem. Anyway, I now have a newly rebuilt and ported engine done by the Rotary Master Engineers at Shadow Rotary, Anthony and Eoin. These two guys are the most knowledgeable, information sharing and friendliest. They explain everything you need to know and more. Not only did the guys rebuild and port my engine, but they also removed unnecessary parts of the VFAD system. Also re-routed the coolant lines so it no longer flows through the Throttle Body as it is not necessary, as we do not get artic weather conditions here. Why have hot coolant running around the Throttle Body housing warming the airflow through it…cold airflow is the best. The lads also changed the front brake pads to the new pads I had sitting in the boot for the past 6 month I never go around to replacing myself. They also polished everything. Here is an example of the polished Throttle Body and Alternator. WOW! Now that was unexpected. Shadow Rotary are the best as many owners out there can testify to this. Accept No Substitute! I did back in July 2015 and it was costly and disappointing. So to end, I hope this topic was informative and entertaining to all, as it was for me. BRAP! BRAP! ZOOM! ZOOM! P.S. Did I mention Shadow Rotary!

  7. Needs must - for now

    Lost for words Rex, especially as you've put so much time, parts, and mods etc., in the last 2 years into her. At least you're not leaving as you've a 7 to get to work on. Don't forsake us RX8 owners with your advice/input on all things 8 just because you got yourself a nice 7. LOL!
  8. What Have You Done to Your RX Today?

    Didn't happen today but yesterday. Arrived over to Shadow Rotary (THE ONLY PLACE TO GO IF YOU'RE AN RX7 OR RX8 OWNER) to collect my newly rebuilt and ported 8. Anthony and Eoin are the ultimate rotary rebuilders in my opinion. They leave nothing to chance and are meticulous in their work. Also met Lenard or was it Luke (sorry dude) and his very nice 06 Evolve and Richie and his beloved white Tiffany which she, Tiffany, entertained us with very loud bangs and her flame throwing skills. Made ones eyes water. I'll do a full report over on my posted topic, "RX8 won't rev beyond 3,000rpm in 5th and 6th gear" to finish that post off.

    @cianc, as @Rex Ruthor said. I've seen how busy they are and mostly they can't hear their phones ringing 'cause of the noise. Keep trying in the evening or just after 9am is good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. RX 8

    Hi Fauzger, it's the joys of being an RX8 owner. These cars require a forgiving and enthusiastic owner, speaking from my own experience [emoji12] One of the guys on here a few day ago wrote up a very good guide on the door lock issue. I can't remember exactly what it was called but if you look under "new post" you show find it. With regard to your VIN it most likely 'cause it a Japanese addition. I doubt it's anything suspicious [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    @Aido8 (Aidan), when the petrol light comes on for the first time you'll have between 11 & 13 litres in the tank. I checked it out in the US forum about 2 years ago as I'm a curious fecker[emoji23] I wanted to get into the 300 mile club but never made it. I gave up on the idea of running it so low just to get into the 300 club, 'cause the fuel pump itself is submerged in the left side of the tank. If you run it till she almost dry there is ever possibility you burn out the fuel pump. That's what I thought I'd done when my RX8 had issues starting but we all now know it was because of a bad engine rebuild. Anyway, to answer your question, I'd say you'd have approx 50 more Kilometres to travel once the fuel light comes on. That's the most I've pushed it. [emoji33] By the way how's your engine? Anthony and Nicola were telling me you had a possible side seal issue on the race track at the 50th Anniversary. [emoji85] Hope it's not a to expensive repair.

  15. @Dartz, sure was but could have been just pure luck. It could have crapped out at any time. You would have to see the state of the engine in person to really appreciate the full picture. I'm surprised the engine didn't go off like a grenade at some point. [emoji12][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
