I thought this was going on for a while.

4 Spark Plugs
No cams
No Valves (No changing gear when you hear valve bounce)

Yes Mazda RX-8 2007 Rotary.
Six speed manual.

Done my apprenticeship with Mazda after I left school
So know them reasonably well.
The later 13 B engines have better seals and porting.
And aftermarket seals are plentiful and with a better choice of material.

Pre mix Fuel with a good quality oil is a must.
