    First post

    Welcome to IrishRotary Sean! Like Aido said, everyone loves pics!
  2. There are a few people on the FB page with cars breaking that might separate one for you from the seat.

    Looking for a 6 speed gearbox

    There are plenty in the UK but you might get lucky if you try Traynors Breakers up North or the likes of Elite Autos in Galway. Have you looked at the breakers on Donedeal?

    3rd and 4 the gears tend to grind

    Check the shops sticky - should be a link or two in there.
  6. Looking forward to seeing more of this!
  7. Welcome back! There's also Rotorsport NI depending on how far up the country you are. Contact details should be in the link above also.
  8. This is the workshop manual for the Series 1 RX8 6-speed gearbox. Manual Trans Workshop Manual 2004-2008 RX-8.pdf

    RX8 heating/fan issue

    Exhaust gas leak test - an example of the kit here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/COMBUSTION-LEAK-KIT-PETROL-DIESEL/dp/B018PM3ZFQ

    Fd parts wanted

    I don't know of anyone in Ireland breaking privately, try the FDOC forum in the UK - thing is by the time you bring it over it'll probably cost you similar money to buying from Elite who in fairness have been pretty reasonable with anything I've bought from them recently.

    Have you tried Elite Autos in Galway? They've a few FDs in for breaking.

    Cold Start Problem

    This. ^^ Even if it has a cat, tow-start it by easing the clutch in in 2nd gear at about 30/40kph & with the key switched to accessory (2nd position from off) - then once it starts being able to accelerate itself, pull over & detach the tow-rope/bar. Then bring it for a good long drive, let it all warm up, & rev it to the limiter in 2nd or 3rd if you can once it's been running at least 10mins or been up to water temp for about ~5mins.

    RX8 heating/fan issue

    Did you rebuild the engine or did someone else? If you did then try as Aido above suggested & source the leak or if you can't find it do a champagne test on it. If someone else did the rebuild, bring it back to them to check especially if it was only recently.

    There are people on here but not as many as before - most chat is on the FB page.
