Re: Show us your Car!

Already posted but was feeling a bit depressed over the compression scores.

Re: The end?

Had the compression test done, unfortunately averaging 4.5 and 4.6 bar for rotors 1 and 2 respectively. Rebuild is out of the question, as much as I'd love to have it as a track car. Looks like it is the end after all Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190915/352...

Hi Luke, if you can make it to Stroud, I will happily compression test it for you?
Thanks for the offer! Ryan Rotary is closer for me, so I think I'll take it there and see what they have to say

I'll try and find somewhere that can take a look. If the news isn't all bad then I would love to hold on to it.

Re: The end?

Once it sits for a little bit, it will eventually turn over after some more struggling. Once it's running, it drives as it always has done, idles normally. There's nothing wrong apart from the startup. Tell me I'm being overly pessimistic please.

Re: The end?

This is actually... the start of your rebuild thread where you get to have all things you ever wanted done to your 8 :lol: There is a fullbridge motor for sale by big pete, its my previous engine, it did under 2500miles, and had no expense spent on it.

Unfortunately not :(

Needs a lot of body work doing, but other than that it's all good.

Re: Tapping noise from the engine bay

I have this same thing, relieved that it shouldn't be anything serious.
Asked a few others about it who say the same as well.

Coils, plugs and leads all replaced today after a misfire. Expensive day, but she runs like a dream in comparison

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

Drove for 3 hours toward Oxford in start/stop (mostly stop) traffic due to the M40 closure. Then decided it was better to just head home, which took 30 minutes
Aquaplaned on the way home and almost lost it :whistle:

Re: 300 Mile Club (S1 RX8s) or 325 mile club for S2 RX8s

This should count? The last 16 miles would have been easy, just couldn't afford to spend the time (or money) fuelling the next morning at a service station just to prove a point [emoji849] https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190507/ac0b6fd4076988ffe3437ab82331fafb.jpg Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapa...

Tailed a velo red on the m40 this morning all the way into Oxford. Good thing you were in a hurry or I'd have been late for school
