Re: RRP Semi PP engine - one step closer- update 1 March

On a rebuild basis for either 192 (4 Port) or 231 (6 Port) owners; As for price as I know most are itching to find out, I haven't and cannot fully price up but should be about the £4K mark for a Street-Port with the PP intak...

Re: Compression testing

Eccentric Shaft Sensor, disconnecting it makes a big difference to the accuracy of the readings with the DCT.

Re: Compression testing

Disconnect the ES Sensor, remove all leads from spark plugs and when cranking keep your foot down fully on accelerator

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

Started it up for possibly the first time this year with the intention of doing a compression test.
The accelerator pedal however is not working and when it gets warm it starts auto-revving up and down.
Can I put this down to its current lack of steering wheel or potentially another issue?

Red and black drivers seat

Total long shot but has anyone got a red and black leather drivers seat they want shot of? I have a whole black leather interior I can use if not but just thought if someone has a single seat they would sell fairly cheap I can keep hold of it . Or failing that if anyone wants to buy a red and black ...

Re: Another cat stolen.

I can only assume the previous owner either didn’t want to or didn’t have the knowledge to do so 🤷‍♂️

I bought it from a salvage auction as a result of the write-off, it’s now temporarily sporting a Toyo decat.

Re: Another cat stolen.

I took delivery of a nice Stormy Nemesis that has only done 35k yesterday, written off due to having had the cat stolen. The scrotes did at least do a tidy job, the o2 sensor connecter was still in place and hadn’t been ripped out which made it an easy repair. Unfortunately there is someone out ther...

Re: Breaking a VR

Actually Chris, a couple of weeks ago I sold Ranjan an OS wing I had from a previous breaker so he potentially still has that kicking about as it sounds like it’s not been fitted?

Re: New R3 owner

Looks like it was worth the wait. I agree with John that the heat coming from the trans tunnel sounds worse than usual .
Original cats are worth £500 plus currently so will pay for a good quality Hi Flow cat e.g RRP which will give you better peace of mind.
