2007 RX-8 with 192,000km
As you can probably see this was a “I’ll keep this car forever” project, I should stop telling myself that.. 😂 Dad duties are keeping me too busy for the car right now.
I don't know if it's ever been rebuilt or the motor replaced, but it runs very strong. I feel like it was probably done because of how strong the motor feels, but I don't know for sure.
The car is gutted and on its way to becoming a track car.
Interior is only the stock front seats, Center console and dash.
No radio, hvac etc but the dash is intact.
I have the door cards, rear seats and carpet in the garage.
Rear bumper is cut with a Center exit exhaust (vibrant performance) in preparation for a diffuser and the trunk floor is cut out and replaced with flat aluminium.
Runs great, compression seems good and no problems starting hot or cold
Aftermarket wheels are 18x9.5 square with 245/40/18 Falken rt660’s with one track day and about 1000km on them.
New ignition coils
H&R lowering springs
Front diffuser is just wood and for looks, not functional.
Rebuilt status (original owner hit a deer in 2013 or so.
