Re: 400whp turbo setup from NZ

So are those turbos going to be big enough to keep building power with a peak at the top end? I assume the redlines will be lowered compared to a n/a Renesis, but like any good rotary, it should still fun and worthwhile to rev it out.

Re: Turbo kit

Now for anyone wanting silly power then perhaps a twin turbo REW swap :) (our latest development) Surely you're not trying to retain the OEM twin turbo setup? From what I gather, there isn't space in the RX-8s engine bay. Interested to see how your plans develop though, as I really want to do this ...

Re: Track tyres....

I would say the chance of overheating a road tyre depends both on brand and conditions. If you're tracking on a hot summers day, then it's more likely they'll get cooked quickly. However I've managed to overheat Avon ZZ5 road tyres on a wet March day, so I would suggest something like a Michelin PS4...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

your reg: brings up that you have the M54 engine Assume that's a typo. Just researched and the M54 engine is an earlier one and was used in the E46 generation 3 series. The E91 initially used the N54 before later switching to N55. Where are you looking it up Pete? Sent from my IN2013 using Tapatalk

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Thought it was the water pump that was the concern on the N54? It's the only one of the common issues that I have no record of being fixed. Otherwise everything else looks to have been done or upgraded. Previous 2 owners were both professional mechanics so have a lot of receipts for mods and general...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

I ran a standard 335i for while and with max torque available from 1500rpm lag just didn’t exist. Mine was the earlier one with teeny twin turbos they layer changed to a single twin scroll unit. That’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing with that power upgrade. Yep It's really quite unassuming. Could easil...

Re: Once you go black.... (Condor's PZ)

Well I'm certainty in a position to compare. The steering feel of the 8 is significantly better, but the BM has the NVH advantage. It's been a while since I had an 8 on standard suspension though. Edit: I'll add that I've been pleasantly surprised by just how well the BMW drives as an overall packag...

Just been discussing with some mates this morning and one of them has suggested Thruxton on 21 May. If that doesn't happen, I may well book on to your day Jon.

So anyone fancy a spring booking then? The club calendar is very skewed to the latter half of the year presently.

Re: RX8 vs S2000 vs Boxster

When I bought my first RX-8, I also considered a Z and a S2k. Turns out that I don't fit in a S2k at all. I like the Z, but it's really more of a Japanese muscle car, so despite it's significant acceleration advantage, I was ultimately won over by the 8's nimbleness and handling prowess. Wasn't a cl...

I think we all knew that was coming. I'm happy to attend the October date, but it does mean that I need to book some other track days for the spring and summer. Currently I have 3 days booked between the end of Oct and Nov.

Re: Top Tier Coilovers

Not RX-8, but my RX-7 FD specialist doesn't really rate the Ohlins and recommends Meister R's instead. I've had both Teins and Meisters on my various RX-8s, and haven't quite passed judgement on them, although do enjoy their track manners. They do ruin the ride for road driving, but I'm ok with that...
