    Selling my rx8

    Have to sell my rx8 as I have a baby on the way and won't be able to afford to run it anymore unfortunately. Here is the link to done deal https://www.donedeal.ie/cars-for-sale/03-rx8-low-milage/14611196

    Thanks I might look into this if I can get the money together . do u work weekends ? I'd have to factor in about 120 euro of petrol to the journey too hahaha but what harm . Does the map increase the torque down low ? the one and only thing I'm not enjoying with this car at the minute is the low down torque when city driving is fairly jumpy

    Said I'd throw up some pics of the motor here anyway for those looking to see it . found out when looking through the folder that came with the car that's it's had a full stamped service history witch is strange that seller didn't mention haha . bonus I guess . @55k miles and running like a dream https://www.dropbox.com/s/ozt414ejd1ahdit/20161114_233512.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/f0v05fn0k6pwz6j/Screenshot_20161112-180022.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/43z6avsnijn7h5b/Screenshot_20161112-180026.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/8igssob8c50564p/Screenshot_20161112-180029.png?dl=0 Not much done in the way of mods . has a upgraded wosp starter and I fitted a decat pipe a few days ago to it .

    What are these graphs ?

    Hmm can't see anything to do with rpm that's all that's there . there's only 55k miles on the engine so hopefully it's healthy . came with all receipts for parts and services etc
  7. Recently purchased a rx8 and going through the service history found 2 sheets with rotor 1 and rotor 2 . see links to photos . https://www.dropbox.com/s/pl7u326gc0sbdmf/20161119_210522.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/dbkw3dtjx100jsy/20161119_210512.jpg?dl=0

    Rx8 transmission

    The transmission oil was just changed yesterday with the recommended mazda oil . it stopped for awhile but came back again unfortunately
  9. Hey all . my rx8 is grinding in 4th gear when in the high rpm range . any solutions for this ? it's perfect when driving normally. Is there any rebuild kits out there for this . my dad's a mechanic so it wouldn't be me rebuilding it. if there are not kits it's there any place around cork that could rebuild this and what cost roughly would I be looking at . I'd also look in to getting a new transmission if there is anywhere I can buy a new one. can't see any online just all old ones . Any help appretiated .

    Perfect thanks for the advice . I ordered a cheap decat off e bay today . will I see much of a difference in performance and fuel economy with this ? I'll be getting a full exhaust system eventually just don't have the money at the minute as I have 3k set aside just in case the engine goes bang lol.

  13. Hey how's it going . you were recommended as the man to do a remap . just got a rx8 . 03 stock 231 . I have ordered a cheap but cheerful decat off e bay . how much would your remap cost and would I get better performance and economy ? thanks.
