  1. PCV upgrade from inactive to active aka post 06 model. Method A : You need to source vacuum chamber/ oil filler neck and Y pipes from other engine. On Left is per 06 models which only have one house concoction to throttlebody accordion elbow and on Right post 06 which have active air circulation, taking MAF ed fresh air from accordion elbow and exhausted it through filler neck port to acc port/ primary port vacuum nipples. https://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rx8...d813c7c89b.jpg Left per 06 and right post 06 https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rx8...c81f9f4621.jpg Filler neck id is way smaller in post 06 Drill bits illustrates id difference between them, although, Mazda went to active PVC, still used inferior design of orifice PCV valve instead of using proper flow valve. I will photograph my PVC valve setup and oil catch can. https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rx8...3a0b57b545.jpg per 06 https://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rx8...6344abeccd.jpg In post 06 air inlet is added https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rx8...df493d7c24.jpg L per06 and R post06 Method B : using a office on oil filler neck exit with Y pipe towards acc ports. Fresh meter air after MAF entrance via dip steak pipe :d https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rx8...40efd4cc84.jpg Red arrows drain of PCV and Green/ yellow entrance of fresh air. Lastly, I use mx-5 PCV valve and I have to say it was wrong option as it doesn't doing its job specially on idle flow reduction. VW pcv valves are better in term of functionality. PVC valve sit on way to acc ports on primary ports. https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rx8...c0a06b71a0.jpg ms-5 PCV valve Oil catch can between oil filler neck and acc ports. https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rx8...cfc74a67a8.jpg Yellow arrows toward oil catch can Red's to acc ports
  2. How to remove mirror. Some future ideas for others.
  3. Ever since I moved to UK two things bugging me, 1st, interent speed 2nd, GPS accuracy. I was living in Hungary for 9 years and GPS accuracy was like 1 meter with life direction and no disconnection, probably it increase my standards internet speed and price was better in any measurable factor. Cut to chase, the front windshields in general could attenuate GPS signal, due to be laminated or UV protectors. However, back windshield won't, and thats reason most of OEM GPS antenna's are located in back shelf or even best place on roof. kit by Hans Delgosha, on Flickr So, I purchase this simple kit and put it to test. I have to say I am totally surprise by outcome. I located the kit receiver antenna on factory mount plate on back shelf, car with factory sat nav equipped have it here. Note, the GPS antenna must be attached to metal plate as it use as antenna to increase its efficiency. Then, route wire from central console toward front of dash, where it connected to repeater antenna and get ACC + from usb socket. Again mount antenne on metal bar of dash.

This method works for any GPS need in the car like my Nexus conversion as well as my phone. Other option were like USB antenna for Nexus or Bluetooth GPS antenna.

  8. Final product, main display sets to engine coolant temp, bottom left battery volt, bottom right MAF, bottom most MPEG and top most shift light. Back lights set to Red theme. Gauge it self has auto adjust light control.
  9. Factory mirror is very basic and I was bout putting gauges in it, at begging I shaved the bezel and change it to frames extra slim. However, I wasn't satisfy as I was about altering everything and, a decent auto dim mirror is as low as 10-15 Euro. I chose Gentex 187 for few reasons, it has good ball joint size for retro fitting, it has classic mirror coats in the back unlike others which are sandwiched silver between glass, whereas, classic mirror coats means, silver layer on back of glass, covered by copper layer, one layer of iron paint and final Gray paint cover So, I just need to scratch all paints and removed metal layers, silver + copper. Easy, out line the screen size which in my case was display of 28mm * 28mm (1.6'' generic oled's) To remove metal parts use toilet cleaner the one with acidic ingredient, if want can post name Fitting gauge housing in to mirror case, casing it self needs modification to let elec board goes deeper. Use epoxy to secure them. My gauge of chose is AUTOOL X60 as it has reasonable price and what I was looking for. There are so many septs which I have to skip, if something is unclear kindly ask. Alright, now we need to scavenge oem mirror mount and fit it to Gentex-187, you have to make sharp bend on the mirror joint to pop out balljoint or use a 11mm flat wrench as leverage on both mirrors, then push back the oem balljoint onto the gntx-187. I found safest and easiest way to use badass pipe wrench. Wiring, first look after X-13 and search for factory wires whether you have it or they are absent, Black/ yellow wires. the auto dim is simple, IGN to Ig1 or Ig2 from ignition switch on the left of car you can hock it to Blue/whit wire of blower with 10amp fuse. GND to ground via a screw and REV is revers signal to un-dim when you are reversing which the most complicating one ! there are three Red/ yellow on wiring loom on sill, one of the is our wire try them or go to X-07 on the left side of socket. Other two 0+ and 0- are useless as they are signal for side auto dim mirrors. Wiring gauge, you need Left turn USB 3.0 50cm A type for back of mirror and a obdii extra female socket to joint the existing obdii socket under dash. on new socket short two negative/chassis/ signal as it doesn't matter to gauge. wire Blue/ red to ignition. Note, the factory socket has Battery on this wire and useless for us. rest of wires same to car female socket. I will link pics from my filker.

  11. Since my personal website wont be ready soon, I will pot few topics here. It is rare happing for me to have my mobile in my pocket these days as this pandemic covid19 getting wild. However, the other day when I was doing other stuff it happen to having my mobile handy and I take this pics and I believe this neglected area of rx8's. As far I know per 2006 have different sound isolation in gearbox tunnel and even the cup holders gets better heat isolation later. The 8's have 3 gaiters, most superficial one is mostly a cometic boot, middle one is real deal gaiter which is bolted and lastly deepest one is insulator for wind. Thing I did double the isolator and used other one upside-down. To do this you need to cut upper part with a scissor, to become like right side pic. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WpnZpEAwkHeGIIBwO74nM1oBhwXyi3pt And, now fit cut one it upside down, Don't forget to add grease to hinge ball of stick. https://drive.google.com/open?id=18pCbLiTJdI2u4uSJ_D-zJL7tgvMEPayS Work it all around inside to become like this : https://drive.google.com/open?id=10io-gDtIWN0iOG6-r1SdJO-9NyMMuK_Z Work with help of long nose plier pull back the middle section a dab inside : https://drive.google.com/open?id=1AekYovELshm9_P9FpW8QdpeCFWL7w-oa It is advisable to replace the self adhesive part of 2nd isolator with quality double sided tape : https://drive.google.com/open?id=18mSFFZaHgRIHLl5xfPIrBc3_a3zcL-xw Now its time to utilise some thin layer of available sound dampening. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pLEsUTUUEaJqy_p9_XwOzqz8y59-CcN8 https://drive.google.com/open?id=17Z0Vbl_RChMHNLFXqktebRgo2LE4dEDn https://drive.google.com/open?id=19T8iAXE_OevTmieugUa--U2Xc0_krAFi https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zy5JxwPrY38w_6tuuJK922sFvINRS0-h https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ni1Fk6uzFW7hKLamEIzVloJ9tlA2Cvej https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XXwiuyC22Kf2dMpB75Jlafwt_blZMgLl https://drive.google.com/open?id=1eXeM3AMVpyPm5CNu-w6oHBUdIVF1IKtA I found this shitty Poundland anti skid locally available. Its a thin layer of self adhesive carpet. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JG6rgxovPqpxjMBiEZP5BTYTtxYLfGM7 Lastly put back the main gaiter and fasten nuts, lay down factory felt https://drive.google.com/open?id=1i_e1wgJLZK3ISa5UWXtj2TvGF04Ao7nk
  12. SSV might be faulty, normally the solenoid goes bad and wont open vacuums line. the EU models, per 2006 dosen't have the ssv feedback switch so, they wont show fault on ecu. However, I had personal experience with faulty ssv on several rx8's which all rev fine to 9000! the symptom was sluggish acceleration. Put car in limp mode by unplug MAF sensor while car is running, and let it run without it. If become happier and rev fine then there something wrong with MAF. Unplug every other second coils (trailer/ top) sand see if any thing change ? There so many useful shortcut but it not possible to doing them over net :0 good luck
  13. Interesting! http://www.ehdex.com/Floatless_Coolant_Sensor.html " 2003-2011 Mazda RX-8 Floatless Coolant Level Sensor Kit Having the coolant low level warning light illuminated is a common problem on the RX-8. The coolant level sensor float in the coolant reservoir tank is deteriorated and absorbs coolant. The float gets heavy, and sinks, causing the the coolant low level warning light to come on. The solution is to get the coolant reservoir tank replace, as the sensor is built-in to the tank. However, the problem may come back sooner than expected. Another popular solution is to disconnect the sensor connector and check the coolant level frequently. But if there's a major leak while driving, the engine will get overheated pretty fast. As we know, overheating a Renesis is fatal to the engine. Here we have an alternative permanent solution to replace the sensor without replacing the tank. Using conductive level sensor technology to detect coolant level. When the coolant level falls below the preset level, breaking the conductive circuit, the sensor module will provide a signal to the original sensor connector causing the coolant low level warning or "bird cage" light (located in the dashboard meter) to illuminate.

  14. Oh thats seems be complex problem. do you know how to log with Torque ? Or could read MAf g/s in idle and long short fuel trims
  15. any reading/ number form obdi port ?
