    Rx8 help

    Thank you and everyone for all there help it takes time and effort to reply to my posts. I'm sure ye all have other things to do so thanks again. I'm going to try coilpacks and go from there if that doesn't work I'll get it to specialized mechanic near me if there is one. You said the cat is not tested so can I replace it with straight pipe ?

    Rx8 help

    Thanks I have a code reader will do that when I get home from work and I'll post the results. I am going to get coilpacks and install them myself plus the fact the lad who had the car before me didn't know what he had ie the right way to start/stop it or the right oil or even the different plugs .So I'll get at the car at the weekend and give it a good going over was on bikes for 16 years and always could fix my Owen cars so I'll try my best if it's already broke I can't do any harm thanks again this site is deadly cheers
