Rx8 mt

So the title is pretty vague but I'm open to a selection of cars.
Ideally a GT (leather), under a 100K, compression numbers or recent rebuild paperwork and 2006+
Somewhere under the $6K mark and willing to travel the east coast to pick up.

Could you expand on the compression figure? Like actual figures that are indicative of a proper rotary test since, "80 psi in rear and front" is meaningless.

Yeah so on 2/24 I did the test, car warmed up and driven for 15 mins. First test 80/81/86 and 77/81/80, front and rear rotor respectively. Second test 5 mins later, 82/80/87 and 79/82/83. All corrected with elevation and rpm using the rotary compression tool unit

Thank you for that, right on a failure pretty much, based on the cost of the rebuild and price I'm afraid there is no incentive to drive 4 hours for that car. I have cars around here of same miles and trim that may or may not need a rebuild for the same price.

I have a 2005 manual gt white, 52k on odometer. Compression 94/95/95 and 100/101/104 all at @250 rpm calibrated. Asking $6000. It does have a rebuilt title as prior owner was in an accident. But runs well without any issues. Located in Mechanicsburg, PA 17055. Text me at 717-514-9058 if interested.

Not sure if you're interested but I have an '07 Grand Touring, no accidents.

It has the MS kit but I can convert back to stock, very well maintained.
