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

Changed the oil and filter on the R3 It should be an easy job using the Pella but the location of the filter makes it a right pain.

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

I changed the belts (personal note: go for a slightly longer 825 alternator belt next time) and finally removed the K&N Typhoon :shock: and replaced it with a stock airbox sourced ages ago from bigpete and a K&N panel filter. Also cleaned the MAF, air meshes, throttle body and resonator. Only took ...

This thread has riled up my frustration with another reminder of what older drivers are rewarded with, despite the low standard of historic driving tests. Not to mention the lack of a compulsory theory test back then. Haydn, Ahh the misconceptions of youth, let this oldie educate you on the reality...
