Great teardown video, the mechanic really seems to know his stuff!

The importance of 40 weight oil and premix also seem evident.

Thanks!

This is part of a series from Car throttle's Youtube page. They bought a very cheap RX8 with a blown engine and are rebuilding it. They ran the car on the dyno, then checked its compression also. Check out video 1 and 2, this teardown video is number 3 so far in the series. Its certainly worth following IMO. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNB...1NZAuj0vPe_MkA

Engine assembly is part 4 in the series, and it is quite interesting.

Really enjoying these videos. They remind me of the relative simplicity of the Renesis and make me appreciate it even more.
