hey guys,

 

as title says ive put in an order for one of these, been thinking about it awhile and would love to have this piece of kit,

as using it for myself on the FD and RX8 i will also be doing nixers with it and callouts for those all important figures we rely on :)

 

there built to order so should have it within the next 2 months, 

 

as i said i live in the tallaght area but willing to do callouts for people that need a test, 

 

cheers lads 

 

Sean

I'd say 50 per test and possibly 70 for call depending how far lol

Haven't quite thought of the figures yet but want to be very reasonable and still make a little for myself

They are ver expensive from memory....open to correction here obviously but somewhere in the region of 1200-1500 yoyo's for a proper Mazda one

Expensive enough for sure, but a brilliant bit of kit to have as it seems a compression test is always valued. Something to save for I guess once I get all the other to maintenance bits n bobs sorted. Either that or yourself and littlefeck move to the middle of the country & we will all have handy access to the good stuff lol

That's the plan be nice to make a few extra quid and always Good to have another tester out there, plus the re-sale on them is really good if I ever needed to sell

Did you look on RHD Japan? Good bit cheaper than that but getting caught by customs would be the other worry

@seanmcg I have a buddy with a 06 RX8, he's looking to sell and is not a member here, he wants to get a compression test done to help him move it on, can you help him out?
