Sorry I didn't clarify, been working too long of days here.

The base turbo system( no ecu/ignition upgrade) is $6500 in parts alone, the ecu/install/tuning is $2500, and the S2 cars need bigger secondary injectors(ID2000s)

Total is $9500 turn key.

I am NOT looking for donor cars, if you want this you will have to pay for it. We are already swamped with work for months on end here, and have been for the last 3+ years.

If no one ponies up in the next 3 months, then I might be willing to do JUST the ecu, as I already have previous out of the country customer who is purchasing an S2 Rx-8 with the entire turbo/ecu package from us.

Thanks for the clarification. How does this work with someone like me that's at the other end of the country? Would you just send instructions for my tuner to follow, or will you require the car be taken to you somehow?

These threads are exciting, but also frustrating.

We have all watched in hope for something to come from some other prospective options to no avail.

it has been said that this ECU manufacturer (whomever it is) actually has this up and running with a greddy kit--on a S2?

I guess I'd feel better to see this actually functioining on a S2 before I get too pumped.

Stick to finishing up the original version / prototype for us that are Impatiently waiting for you to get with it.

Let me know when you are ready to beta it.

So is there a S2 RX8 Running with Turblown kit ? Im planning to buy one since there is no proper SC kit. And off topic does the kit works with oem rotors and housings ? And what RPM does full boost coming on which Bar ?

We have not installed or sold a kit to an S2 owner yet.

Here is the boost curve on a 1.06 T3 GT35R with a bone stock untouched engine with 60,000 miles..

As you can see its in boost right from 1500rpms on, but won't reach full boost til 4000rpms. This can be adjusted by going with a smaller turbine a/r, or smaller compressor wheel. A better condition engine will also " spool " faster..

Curve seems good Waiting good news about Turblown S2 Turbo kit. Have you used Meth injection on your cars ? Even in N/A form EGT can go really high cant imagine at 11.6 psi. Maybe With a ported and rebuilted engine + meth injection higher PSI's can be tried.. But this kit is my fav. atm

Much higher has been tried...


I've used meth injection a few times on the Rx-8s, would like to revisit it now that I've learned a lot more. I've got many many years logged with it on Rx-7s, from non-intercooler cars all the way up to 29psi on 91 octane( lasted 30,000 miles BTW)..

Wow thats amazing Looking forward for S2 kit to release. BTW do you have the ECU Pinout diagram for Series 2 ? I have the 1 but they seem different. Im planning to run the kit with Haltech and Meth injection trying to build a harness now. We have reached 450 hp with meth injection on a stock turbo Evo 9, meth is just useful

Link and product is irrelevant to this Series II thread, different ECU's are used in 2009 RX-8's

This thread is "closed" until there is an S2 which has an installation.

Discussion and specs about S1 should be in that forum.
