Velocity Red paint with Red/Black Two-Tone Leather Interior
I am absolutely meticulous when it comes to my cars and always keep them in immaculate condition. It has never been in an accident. This car has not seen snow. It has been washed weekly since I bought the car, and waxed every other month. Aside from a 2 rock chips on the front bumper.
The interior is also extremely clean. I still have the original Mazda Rx-8 carpet floor, and I clean the inside regularly so the inside is also in excellent condition.
I changed the oil every 3000Km since taking delivery of the car. Every time the oil was changed with Castrol GTX 5w-30 oil and a factory Mazda oil filter. New wipers were also put on the car.
CAR IS RUNNING its just not running as fast as it should be or the way it should be i am not to sure why the engine light is not on, the car still runs, i cannot find a shop that specializes on aftermarket turbocharged RX8's
selling the car as is, if i find a shop near by that can fix and tune my car i will probably end up keeping it. the car is in great shape

Reason: forgot to post price
ANYONE LOOKING AT THIS THREAD READ THE LINK ABOVE!!!
He is having very big engine problems and doesnt know how to fix it. Sounds like a compression problem because hes already changed the plugs and coils, possible dead engine because of the turbo? He just purchased before the winter and theirs a good chance his seller abused it or he did.
Not cool man, dont try and scam someone into buying your breaking 8 for full price.... Thats not cool at all...

i am not trying to scam anyone, it clearly states it runs but not running as it should be, i am trying to fix it and make it run the way it should be it could be a bad engine which i highly doubt because my mechanic didn't say anything about the engine being bad, i dont know why your freaking out it sais 17500 OBO its just a price i posted.
the car was not abused by me since i never got to drive it with nice weather so i could not even drive the car hard, second its been stored all winter.
i am going to take the car to MAZDEE's and see if they can get it running amazing again.
if i were scamming you i would say car runs amazing no test pilots this is the price.
i am not expecting to get 17500 with the car not running 100%
i am positive the engine is perfectly fine, car comes with all the stock parts to put it back to the stock engine without the turbo.
its something to do with the turbo and how its set up or something is wrong or loose or happened to the turbo thats making the loss of power i just had the car at my mechanics and had the plugs and coils changed, and they told me it has to do with the turbo kit, and to bring it in to a aftermarket turbo specialist mechanic
