What is the single best 'mod' you have done to your 8?
 
Whats your favorite? I've driven my 8 for... 24k miles now, and aside from the 'install' of the ScangaugeII, I havent done anything to her at all.

What would you say is your favorite one thing you've done? Maybe I can plan my next step :D

flywheel HANDS DOWN. by far the best mod you can get for the 8

Moostafa29 04-11-2007 10:24 PM

Turbo...when I had it.

carbonRX8 04-11-2007 10:29 PM

Moostafa, just IMO, the turbo is not a 'single' mod. It took me several modifications just to get that 'one' modification to work. I understand your point though.

Snow tires :ylsuper: Saved my ass many times. Other than that AFE shifter.

shaunv74 04-11-2007 11:09 PM

Springs and shocks by far. I have the flywheel but like the springs better.

GeTcRuNk 04-11-2007 11:20 PM

if you had a choice...very nice coilovers...or very nice clutch w/ flywheel??

djaaron07 04-11-2007 11:26 PM

Put a JL audio 12" sub in the trunk, cause the stock Bose speakers have shitty bass!

bureau13 04-11-2007 11:36 PM

I think I would have to say my Racing Beat sway bars...they have made a tremendous change in the way the car behaves during cornering.

I dont understand how people can say flywheel and short shifter over mods like exhaust, wheels & lowering.

In my opinion wheels & lowering combo would be the best mod.

Followed by a new exhaust system.

The rx8 already has a very good shift and a pretty light flywheel from factory.

Slight improvements to this IMO don't outweigh the look of lowered 8 rolling on nice wheels .. or the music produced through an aftermarket exhaust system.

each to their own . I would opt for the flywheel also because straight line performance is the one real weakness of the 8 .

fumoto drain valve, it has more than paid for itself over and over and over again

swoope 04-12-2007 12:44 AM

flywheel / clutch or afe shifter. depending on how much you have to spend..

beers :beer:

My gas pedal extension, designed by me, machined by Cornell Mini Baja. It makes heel and toe shifts much easier.

A close second if the Mazdaspeed strut tower brace; really stiffens up that brake pedal.
