Not really sure if anyone has tried to fit a turbo yet...due to the unavailability of tuning.

i know you cant use a cobb but i would assume that a greddy emanage or another piggy back system would work just fine

I wouldn't recommend any system to control an rx-8 with FI of any year unless it had full fuel and ignition controls. It seems to me that a lot of people are hesitant to turbocharge S2 rx-8's simply for the fact that the accessport isn't available for it....yet. There are many of full standalone systems available that would do just as good if not better in some cases...

Good point. So I guess the reason for this subforum is to be prepared when they aren't?

Really? I wasn't aware of that. Well I guess that leaves a door open for another plug and play unit to grab the tiny market...

This is the only S2 I have seen with a turbo. No details either.
