Re: T200 CAD Supercharged RX-8 Engine Renaissance

This may sound a little on the extreme side, but with the countless wiring issues you’ve been having, I would consider swapping out the wiring loom for a stock non messed with one then just add in after whatever gauges/mods you have after testing if there is any different. In some rare cases, all it...

Re: Pettit Supercharger kit for sale

Everything is pointing toward me snapping this up. I get what people are saying, im not fussed if it goes bang as wont be the end of the world. So only thing to figure out would be the front bracket? Doesn't sound to bad to me. So no worries with my ECU? I would go with the manifold to, makes sense ...

Re: Pettit Supercharger kit for sale

Just a word of warning to Goobie - I don't believe these kits are 'plug-n-play' on the R3? Please confirm if I've got that wrong, but I was under the impression the supercharger kits out there wouldn't work with an R3? The bracket at the front will need to be changed as its a different front cover ...

Re: Pettit Supercharger kit for sale

Just thinking out loud here, if it isn't available till after the 5th of July? Would you be looking at just taking a deposit for now and full balance on removal? Lastly, good price or not, any room for negotiating, obviously in private.

Thanks.

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

Got the RX-8 compression tested great results for a £600 quid car and gave Alex some jib for selling his... Well he does still have it so that all good. Had a great day at Silverstone and the car performed admirably around the track. Can't wait for more track action! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.co...

Not used one myself but I'd look into getting a spray gun for all that ? An airless spray gun is definitely the way to go, if you don't mind masking all the windows, floors etc. Funny you guys should mention it as I was already on the case and was waitting for the easter weekend sales for one I alr...

It is immensely satisfying when you put the power on and the new/replaced lights/sockets/taps etc work.

I have a axialflow shifter, Rotary Revs stocks them. Not a huge price item either, so not sure what the drama is as have seen in another thread about it but yet to comment.

Things changed since I bought mine?

Those are some nice doors (IMO) - be a real shame to paint them. Hopefully you can limit it to just (tinted?) varnish.

Re: The Ultimate Man Cave (Warehouse) *Picture Heavy!*

Picked up three solid OAK doors for a killer price! Worked out same price as the hollow cheapy's via my contacts. Weigh 30 kilos each and being solid OAK, bit of a nightmare and time consuming to trim up and carve out the hinges and mortice locks sections. They look awesome, be a shame to paint them...
