Winter project black 192

Post by Markl17 » Sun Nov 10, 2019 9:56 am

Hello
I went and bought a 2007 Mazda rx8 192 in black with a bad engine. I trailered it home on Wednesday evening and rolled it in to the garage,Friday evening I did a compression test and not good,compression ok on the front rotor and none on the rear,so I pulled the engine and there is 2mm of end float so I think I am in for a world of disappointment when I split the engine.
The rest of the car is good bit of rust on rear subframe and lacquer peeling off the front bumper the interior is nice and clean with stone leather.my plan is to restore the car over winter.

Sounds like a Kuro special edition

Is the black metallic?

Hi warp oil.
The car is the normal black probably just ordered with that trim.
Stripped the engine this afternoon,I think I know why I had no compression on the rear rotor,it’s a bit of a mess.new housing and rotor required.
