  1. Been taken easy with the new engine rebuild. Since the guys in Shadow sorted me out I've been taken it easy RX8 wise. Only put 5467km on the new rebuild engine with 6 oil changes. Missed the banker on the forum. I'm back now to give whatever input I can. Just realised I'm an RX8 owner for 6 years now and I have info to share.[emoji2957] Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    Who Is Keeping Their Rotarys For Good

    I've had mine since August 2013...it's been through two engine rebuilds, 201, 358km on clock as of today. So many parts replaced over the years...it's a keeper. I just love the shape of the car, it just does not go out of date. As for the cockpit...nothing comes close. That centre console as one drives like a demon to see the rev counter and the digital readout, oh YES!

    What Have You Done to Your RX Today?

    I love being ignorant when I see developements like this, it means I can say things like...WTF is this?...or Now there's a man who's got a degree in Advanced in Starship Technology! Way to go Jamie! You're special! LOL! The above is meant in the best possible taste and admiration. Keep up the good work!

    Like @Owenk N/S oil cooler line gave up. Got a replacement on eBay from the UK, it's not a OEM Mazda but better for €64, delivery included. Being the over cautionist I rust proofed all the metal bits with Hammerite Rust Proof and sprayed then rust Proof Red for the laugh! Drained the oil before fitting, so took almost 3 hours to complete the job. Here is the fitted result! Well pleased with myself!

    What Have You Done to Your RX Today?

    I've been off the forum (basically of the all of the interweb grid etc.,) for the last 7 months and nothing much has happened. Hence the qoute from Jamie above, nothing else to report from Jamie or am I on the wrong thread I started way back in 2015???? "F" facebook, put all your advise and know how here on the forum! I'm not giving out but that's what this, "JP and Jamies" place is for! I'll start by stating that I've nothing extra done to report on my own RX8 since Anthony & Eoin of Shadow Rotary "Completely" rebuilt my engine from the mess that I handed to them. It's been off the road for the past 6/7 months due to personal circumstances. Looking forward to getting back into the 'cockpit' before the summer and posting my addition RX8 endeavoers. So Jamie, what have you done with the above???

    So what's the story Aaron? Any up date? Hope all's well with the "Blue Bommer!" After 14 years I'm sure she needs the "once over" and in no better hands than Anthony and Eoin.

    New rx8 owner

    Show us some photos of the RX in general and shots of the rust issue. I had rust issues with my sills and rear off side arch and did a DIY on them personally 2 years ago after an NCT fail, and it still passed to date. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Okay I’m gonna tell you right now! Thats sounds that the same guy who rebuilt my engine in June of 2015 (Leonard). Engine lasted 12,776 miles over 16 months. Paid €2,900 and a waste. Get it to Anthony in Shadow Rotary before more damage is done. Mine was missing corner seals, wrong e-shaft and apex springs were the wrong ones for the springs. Again, check out my thread.

    Call me the “feckin harbinger of doom” but last December 2016 to March 2017 I had issues that sound familiar. See my thread on here “won’t rev beyond 3500/4000rpm to see what I finally had. As Aidan says, sounds serious. Sorry but it sounds like the engine needs a rebuild. Hope to Christ I’m wrong. Go to my thread and do what I did to fault find. Hope it helps and I’m wrong about an engine rebuild. Fingers crossed for you.

    1. Are the plugs genuine or eBay shite? 2. How’s she starting hot and cold? 3. When was it compression tested and what were the results?
