My lad has the 135 twin turbo with decat down pipe and aftermarket catback currently running 420bhp. Sounds sweet but personally not sure on the handling.

Re: T200 CAD Supercharged RX-8 Engine Renaissance

Question for you Chris if you start the car and don’t move the steering wheel is the steering light on or off?

Re: Changing Central Locking

Make sure you haven’t turned the boot off. The switch for that is located in the glove box. If the boot doesn’t work then normally it’s a complete replacement of locks ecu and module

Re: Race brake kit for sale
