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.

Still waiting for the Sprint owner to make the next move.

Deals been done just need to arrange to get her paid for and back home.
Will call the guy up after the new year.

Already looking at Manifolds,Decat air deletes,Porting Templates and dare I say TURBO’s.
3 Rotor 20B engines as well

Gearbox should be good for up to 350/380Bhp

I’m gonna have to change my username to SprintRX-8.

All the best for 2019.


Phill.

The TVR all alloy AJPV8. 4.2lt.

Never went with the Sprint.
Sold separately.
Subframe was modified for the V8.
Gearbox mount modified to suit the T5 box.

That long ago can’t remember what I done.

The rotary 13B engine is small.
So I reckon not too much hopefully.

Famous last words.
