    Default New rx8 member.

    Hey people.
    My name is Andrew.
    I have owned my velocity red rx8 for close to 4 years.
    I have joined this forum with influence by vanq and another new member, toxi.

    My long time plan has to be to turbo my rx8. So I'm here to see other turbo Mazdas going around. Learn some more and try and help out some others.

    My turbo build has been in the works for years.
    For those who don't know... Turbo in an rx8 is no walk in the park. So I'm taking the time to make sure I get it just right.

    I need something extra to prove Mazda is stupid in making their top of the line sports car "slower" than some of their other line up.

    So far a pile of parts sitting in my garage and room. Waiting for more to join them. Mostly parts in an attempt to make the rotary last a little longer with boost.
    Then a rebuild with all the parts put in.
    Turbo has not been purchased yet.
    I have been researching a lot just to get it right so I don't have to get it rebuilt the second I want to hit boost. Lol


    Please don't ask me for a list of parts. I have not even shared it with my club (rx8club.com.au).
    I don't want another person to copy all my hard work. Lol
    And yes I am willing to bet that if I did share it someone would copy as according to my plans it should break the 300hp at the wheel range and be able to last a decent amount of time.
    For those of you who know the rx8...300hp is not only impressive on a renisis... But getting it last is the most impressive

    Rebuild will be done by end of the year.
    Then I just need the actual turbo and a few more toys.
    My room is getting messy.,. So I want to do it soon lol
