Re: compression test results opinions

Vibration on the gear knob, shouldnt be too bad, but have a quick look at engine mounts, as when they're worn, vibration can ...

Re: Changing my starter motor. Which should I buy..?

Fitted another Schmitz to a friend's 8, stuck with an original slow starter and struggling to start 8. The difference , as you expect was instant and, at least from my own perspective, was money well spent.

Re: Brapping and Broke - Living with an RX8 (at 18 years old)

Only saying in jest :) quite right, each to their own. In my younger days had a set of alloys painted in , from memory, Ducati black. Was lovely, but soon changed my tune after a few miles. It looked naff as they were impossible to keep clean and to not introduce swirls in the paint was a pain and t...

Re: Replacement Radiator

My advice is do not go for the mishimoto. It doesn't fit well. Go for OEM , less than 100£ from euro car parts or a bigger koyo if you're feeling flush! If the one fitted is the original one, then save some dosh and replace it with the same. Was it you that had the world of pain trying to fit a MM ...

So today I fitted a Ryan rotary performance high flow cat, in conjunction with the borla it has a pretty good sound, low load it's fairly tame, WOT it comes to life, now I need to see how it behaves on the motorway at cruising speed.
200cel one?
