    Hey read your "Racing Beat Duct to factory airbox" thread but the pictures are not loading. I have found several threads similar but no pictures of exactly what I'm looking for. Any chance I could get you to email them to me or post them here if possible. My email is [email protected]. Thank you.

    Having reread Greg's build thread with the RX8 Performance kit it has been left hanging without the final tuning numbers. Were you able to finalise the tuning and have you ever graphed out the chart? After looking at the kit performance graph in your album the Greddy UG looks like it has a nice smooth ramp up. How does this compare to the RX8 performance kit? Very curious since it looks a lot like your manifold style which should reduce back pressure pre turbo over the greddy manifold.

    Hey Brettus. Just checking in. How do you like mazda edit? Would you recommend it over cobb and mazdamaniac? Since its open source does it mean that everyones' edits are uploaded online and able to be accessed by others or just a few starting templates to work with?

    Gm. I'm in the planning phase of a turbo kit install...likely Scott's RX8performance kit, and am investigating tuning options, i.e. tool & persons. I've read you've been doing Gregs' install tune, which seems to be going well & he's very happy w/ the performance. Curious what management tool are you using? Is it in person tuning or remote capable? Thx, Curtis

    Hi Brettus,

    I use mazda edit to tune my own 8, I have completed my first rebuild and porting (racing beat templates) on my motor. I am in the process of installing the motor back into the car for its first startup, would like to know if stock tune be able to start the motor? I also have my previously tuned maps where I changed Omp, fuel, ignition, throttle, dwell settings, and recalibrated maf. Could I use those adjusted maps to start the motor?

    G'day mate, just joined the Rx8 Club this week as a grabbed myself a good deal on the rx8.
    Iv never been so interested in engines as much as this 8 has gotten me over this past 3 days, so crazy that i chose to drive to wellington from Auckland in the middle of the night at 4a.m to get myself this car. Writing to you to clarify the appropriate tests i could conduct to ensure the condition on the car that iv just bought. Can you also clarify on the appropriate turning on and off with rotary engine procedure as for now im following leaving the car on for a few mins to prior to driving and prior to turning it off.

    Hey man I need some advice if you could help me I saw your post about the oil cooler, well I only one running right now and I bought a shitty universal oil cooler and it requires me to cut off my banjos my car is stock can I just drive with one oil cooler and clamp the other hoses until I get a better oil cooler?

    It's a 2007 rx8 manual... oil cooler just requires me to cut off banjos or use their shitty adapters that look getto... should I just roll with one nice oil cooler instead of 2

    Thanks Derek
