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

My fuel consumption improved by at least 10% when I fitted the Racing Beat Ram Scoop.

Trouble is I also fitted new plugs, leads and coils at the same time, so can't be sure what made the difference

Your best bet is just to ensure that everything, engine, transmission, brakes and running gear, is in top condition.

Re: HELP! Broken...any ideas

If the engine was revving freely and going nowhere, then it's the clutch. The starter engages on the rim of the flywheel that the clutch presses against. If you've destroyed the clutch then this may be preventing the starter engaging and/or chunks maybe jammed in the clutch housing. This would expla...

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

The easiest way to visualise a lean (economical) vs a rich (powerful) AFR is... - in a lean mixture, every molecule of fuel needs to be surrounded by molecules of air, so that all the fuel gets burnt. - in a rich mixture, every molecule of air needs to be surrounded by molecules of fuel, so that all...

The Secondary Air System (aka air pump) is part of the emissions system and helps the cat get to working temperature quickly during a cold start. It's redundant all the rest of the time. However, it weighs much less than the contents of my wife's handbag and is only removed from race cars as part of...

.. or lots of lube ;) Another tip, that works well with the OEM coils & leads, so should also work with these, as they're interchangeable... While the rubber boot on quality HT leads might give a firm watertight fit, it's most important that the electrical connection is tight. If the coil-end connec...

Re: Space Saver 5x114 125/70/17

The genuine Mazda spacesaver is a steel wheel, not alloy, with the same seats for the stud holes, so you can use the original wheel nuts.
If your original wheel nuts fitted without issue that would suggest that it may well be the genuine Mazda spacesaver.

My box to NI arrived an hour ago. The outer box shows signs of a hard journey, and everything inside has been jolted, e.g. all the springs jammed down one end with the partitions flattened [-X However, nothing appears to be bent or broken. :D I did have a panic when I thought there was only one pair...

Re: RRP Performance Coil system MKII - website review now active

Mazda didn't make all the R3 changes (or the reasons for them) public. I assumed the gear knob internals would be the same, until I got the heat gun out on Sunday night and learned the shocking truth. Given that the R3 has a totally different gearbox to, either of, the Series 1s and even the shift ...

Re: Cold start problem...

A 5°C difference is quite a lot, unless it can be explained by circumstances; e.g. the engine was running within the last hour or the sun is shining on the front of the car. Otherwise I'd expect the sensors to be reading the same, within a much smaller margin. A swap with a known good part would be ...

Without reading through this thread again from the beginning... Are you getting sensible readings from the Intake Air Temperature sensor?
