    RX8 Rebuild 1 now 2 :-)

    Finished ripping engine today the rear plate and front plate aren't too bad all the wear/burning is on centre plate, my knocking noise was that the bearing in the rear rotor was spinning in the rotor itself, think this caused heating which burnt the eccentric shaft/bearing/rotor so parts list is as follows - -full gasket/seal kit -eccentric shaft -all eccentric bearings -rear rotor -centre plate - and I think 2 rotor housings *if anyone wants to donate parts to my virgin rebuild that's fine too :-) *

    Ya there the DVDs I have quiet good. I'll check up on d porting , as for the cat it's already gone. Do the D585 coils make much of a difference.

    Rx8s aren't emissions tested? why so
  10. Hey lads, bought a non running RX8 to do up and sell, after new plugs and leads, had trouble starting the car towed it and it started with a tow but knocking, after a look over the shell I decided against going any further as the sill were rotten, I found a shell nearby for handy money which was extremely clean, not even surface rust on the sills so I purchased this one, took engine out of the grey one last night so will start the rebuild on that tomorrow, haven't rebuilt a rotary before so looking forward to it ,ill keep ye posted with pics of engine build and shell refurb/transplant etc
