I've only spoken to the owner via email and a phone call, so I can't attest to their actual work. But he's plenty friendly and will give you estimates.

I've also heard good things about Rotary Resurrection over in TN, but if you've got a dead car, that's a ways to drive. In all honesty, right now, I'm leaning towards this shop when my RX-8's time comes, just because of the good things I've heard.
I've added them to the rebuilder's thread.
If you get anymore info from them or find someone else not on the list, please post it there.

So I'm sort of at a loss on what direction to go given I I went on the with tune up and still can not seem to get it to crank.
haven't towed to a shop, but from researching I found it's flooded and low compression. Today I got her to turn over for a few seconds twice. Tomorrow will be pulling plugs, doing deflooding that way and then coat engine housing with mystery oil to build compression. Should have me back on the road soon!
