    Will do. Hoping to fit it within the next month. Yeah, I have the stock catback and this should fit no probs. I've had a toyosports decat fitted for about the past 6 years or so, and in fairness it's been grand til it started rattling a few months ago, but I'm looking forward to seeing what the new one sounds like as the toyo was always a bit tinny around 3.5k rpm.

    AIDO 8s ROTARY ADVENTURE

    Nay bother dude! If it's any help, the radiator I used in my last RX8 when I built it is the same one @Colin used in his car from memory: a relatively inexpensive alu rad that fits perfectly & has more capacity than the standard unit. Made by a crowd called "Supeed" I think, their ebay name was "provenperformanceparts" if that helps.

    13b rew engine parts

    This. ^^ The people doing exhaust peri-ports on their Rennie engines might look at the housings if they were aware of them. Also, pics of the housings/plates might help people along.

    13b rew engine parts

    Something I would like has come up so willing to let go of some stock. Set of side plates - streetported in good useable condition - €500 Eccentric shaft - €100 Rotor housings - €250 each Rotors - €300 each, these are a matched set which came from an original engine Front cover - €75 Front stack assembly - includes oil pump, used chain, oil pump drive, timing gear, spacer and front pulley bolt - €100 Stock flywheel - €50 Vapour blasted lower intake manifold - €100 Black powder coated upper intake manifold, powder coating is chipped in places but still good condition - €75 With all engine parts I would recommend sending for resurfacing and balancing but I've gotten fussy. Collection preferred so you can see all parts.

    Rotaries in games

    Hey all I was in Leisureplex in Blanchardstown last week and one of the arcade games got my attention because it had a yellow FD in it. My boys wanted a go so I hopped in and went to the Mazda garage in car selection. I was surprised at the range of Mazdas that were available, fb, fc, fd, jc and 110s. Of course I chose the jc Cosmo type S. A very arcadey driving experience but great craic. The game is a version of Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune and I since found out it can be got for ps3 so I'm on the lookout. Gran Turismo 2 is where I learned about the existence of the Cosmo, and I think that's the last of that series it appeared in so it was nice to find it in a game that's still somewhat in use.

    Oil Leak

    So I took the car to Shadow and they replaced the oil sump He said there were no other signs of leaks so hopefully that's that. Also gave the car a once-over (as I've only just bought it) and it came out with a clean bill of health - sparks, coils, starter etc all good. Drop links too. Engine has been out of the car so they believe it was rebuilt which would be great. It reads as 81K km but could be a lot less. Overall I'm v happy with it. Only issue I can determine is the rough idle. That may improve over a few days as the ECU was just remapped so will see. I see some lads talking about cleaning the MAF which seems a straightforward task...that worth a shot for me to try? Cheers. Oh, here's what she looks like!

    The odd ball 8

    And that basically leaves me where I am now. Playing with a diffuser, some rear arches and a new front. All in prep for a new coat of paint.. getting there slowly. Haven't even started on the engine mods, although the turbo arrived a while ago Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Irish Rotary mobile app

    Colin's 04 rx8

    After being sat up for a few months the battery wasn't holding charge, as it happens I had only just replaced the battery in my wifes jeep which was being scrapped so I pikeyed it... It was a little bit big so I cut one end of the battery tray and it was a snug fit Then the exhaust split, rearmost section parted company with the backbox at the final joint due to rust so back under the spares car to swap them over. The spare is not in great shape but I should get a few months out of it... Needs some work underneath, which I'm hoping to get sorted in the next few weeks, but I'm booked in for the trackday at mazdafest so might see if I can source some goodies first and get the other sorted afterwards

    Colin's 04 rx8

    Been a busy few weeks, I’ve been using it as my daily since the end of May so I had to replace the track rod end, pulled the one off the spares car and swapped it over – good as new Got some second hand OEM B-coils and magnecor leads from Shane Rabbit (thanks man), a K&N panel filter and serviced it. Read on here to replace the oil, go for a quick drive and replace again to flush out the oil in the oil coolers, glad I did because that was the first fill of fresh oil after only 10km!!

    Rough Idle. Out of ideas

    Thanks Jamie, turns out it was the leads after not the plugs. On closer inspection they were not in great shape. They were not clicking onto the end of the plugs right. Got a loan of a set of leads (cheers Chazz) and wow what a difference. It's like a new car with this new engine. Pulls so smooth without missing a beat. Oh and the leads were not the cause of the rough idle or missing in my old engine because I tried these exact leads on my last engine and they never solved the problem. I bought this car 3 months ago and this is the first time it is actually running right. Time to start enjoying my RX

    Rough Idle. Out of ideas

    OK so got a full exhaust system and a very good engine only rebuilt 6,000 miles ago from a fire damaged RX. Finished installing it yesterday. Fired up straight away and seemed perfect until the revs settled back down and low and behold that nasty rough idle is still there with jumping and spluttering under acceleration at low revs and when it hits about 6,000rpm. Only 3 things left it could be. Fuel pump, throttle body or ECU. It really does seem like she is being starved of fuel and I'm thinking now this could be the reason for my last engine shitting itself so the car will remain parked up until I get this sorted. If anyone could shed some light on this it would be a great help.

    RX8 and Childseats

    Hi Jimmy, I have a Maxi-Cosi Pearl and their FamilyFix Base without issues. The Pearl is actually pretty compact and fits nicely. I'm about to go for a booster seat since the little man is growing fast, I've my eyes on BeSafe'sIzi up x3 and it's compatible with the 8. We have a Britax evolva 1-2-3 plus in wife's car and it doesn't fit the 8. Check compatibility on manufacturers' product pages before you buy.
