Re: PZ Wheels - What would be a decent price?

Tyres and condition. It's normally hard to get an unkerbed set for less than £600. £400 ish usually gets you a kerbed set. Repair and re-powdercoating set costs a few hundred, so something to bare in mind if you want them put back to mint condition. Original PZ center caps can also cost a fortune so...

Re: Car Ramps and other Access Options

I bought them from eBay a few years back. They were branded "Tech7". Do a search for "Tech7 Vehicle Car Ramp Lift 2 Ton Hydraulic" you'll likely find them. One other thing I should note is that you wouldn't want to go much more than a 235 or 245 profile tyre from memory. I have 225's fitted in the p...

Re: Car Ramps and other Access Options

I've got a black set of the ramp/lift combination ones, although I'm sure I paid much closer to £100 for them. They are sturdy, but are rather poorly put together (no set squares were used during the construction), however for the purpose they serve they are great. You can only reverse up these, as ...

Re: To scoop or not to scoop?

The scoop certainly makes the most difference of the two. It has a noticeable effect at motorway speeds, gaining a little more pull. I no longer feel I have to drop from 5th to 4th on the motorway to steadily build up a bit of speed. Don't get me wrong though, you will still be dropping a cog or two...

This is very promising looking, particularly if you can manage to keep the mid range torque while booster the power up the revs to circa 220WHP.

Re: Track Diet

Assuming you've also cut the boot lid down and installed a light weight fly wheel/counter weight? You may be able to cut some off the bonnet too, but you're not talking much there. Brake calipers (and while you're at it discs) can also be swapped to lighter items, but rather costly. Engine lift hoop...

Re: Clutches (5speed vs 6speed)

BTW I believe it is possible to fit a 192 clutch to a 231 and vice-versa, if you also change the flywheel as well, plus the counterweight (if none OEM), but there's usually no advantage. The only exception is if you've highly tuned (e.g. fitted a turbo to) your 192 and need an uprated clutch that's...

Winter tyres are a must if the 8 is your only vehicle to commute with. you mean all season tyres?

Re: Preparing for winter...

Winter tyres are a must if the 8 is your only vehicle to commute with. I'd highly recommend picking up a cheap set of standard alloys and fitting some tyres to these. Rule of thumb is when the temp is less than 7C during your commutes then it's time to swap the tyres. Winters will feel more floaty, ...

Re: 16MPG!!!! :@ ;) Normal? And pls help me understand street porting :)

As people have mentioned above aound town/short drives will result in circa 16MPG. This is what I average with a 40k mile 192 on my way to work. As long as you're going stead on the motorway 25-30 is easy to achieve on a long run. I managed 29.9MPG on a tank which included a trip down to Cornwall, a...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

The front brace makes a big difference to pedal movement.

Re: New Product - COFS (SOHN) tank system - Update 17/8/2018

Fitted mine. The logos are of great quality. Everything that you need is provided with the kit. As for the breathers I'm sure they'll be fine with minimal venting area as the level drops slowly under normal injection rates. I've fitted some breathers however as I still had two of the 90 degree bends...

Re: New Product - COFS (SOHN) tank system - Update 17/8/2018

Just been back up to the garage to triple check and no they don't. There is a sealing o-ring inside the lid too, so no air is getting past the threads either. That's a decent shout goodeggbob. Time to price up some small breather filters and some AN-6 ORB (9/16x18 UNF) fittings I think.

Re: New Product - COFS (SOHN) tank system - Update 17/8/2018

Tank fitted today and it's looking great. One thing I would like to query with everyone though is that as the tanks drain, won't they create an air vacuum, which in the case of the oil tank could be quite problematic?

Sorry if I'm missing something obvious. :?
