Engine has been street ported by David Atkins while in rebuild (summer 2012).

New clutch/throwout bearing installed at the same time.

Total 1776 miles since the rebuild (have paperwork). Transmission shifts perfect.

Car is located in Seattle area she runs and drives but has a CEL on and also engine doesn’t restart when hot unless the car is push started.

Car has brand new battery, starter, coils, engine, clutch and is a great deal for this asking price.

Sounds like you should make a visit to Atkins to get a compression test on the engine

No way it shouldn't be running like a champ at 2K miles after a new rebuild

Not worth much without an engine

You are correct sir, eventually I'll have to fix it if I can't get any decent money for it like it sits...
I can't imagine it being compression it is a new engine but it would make a good selling point to have the compression numbers on paper.

We just got an AMG C43 and instantly lost all interest for the RX8 so we thought we would offer it like this first. Maybe someone wants an almost complete project.

It's probably the seals. Some other users have reported low compression with atkins seals right after the rebuild.

If that's the case it needs another rebuild with genuine mazda parts.
