Default FS: 2004 RX8 with new engine

I'm selling a 2004 Brilliant Black Mazda RX8. 6 Speed manual. The car was purchased by me at around 150K miles and a low compression engine. Since that time, a Mazda reman was purchased, torn down, all clearances checked and light cleaning of the ports was performed before the engine was restacked and put in the car. The car has about 170K miles on it now and the engine is fully broken in. The car is equipped with the following parts:

- Reman Mazda engine with roughly 20k miles (rebuilt only to verify side seal clearances and to clean the ports up a bit)
- GReddy 32-way coilovers
- New Clutch and Mazdaspeed flywheel and counterweight
- Racing Beat headers
- Custom full Magnaflow exhaust from the headers back to include a Magnaflow hi-flo cat and muffler. Great sound and not over the top loud.
- 19" wheels with new Cooper rubber (less than 20k miles on the tires)
- AutoEXE fiberglass hood (this hood is over $1,000 to buy new)
- Tinted windows all around (including slight tint on front windshield).
- Sohn OMP adapter kit with custom oil resevoir (this allows the use of fresh oil from a secondary source instead of spending used engine oil in the OMP)
- New aluminum radiator


This setup made 194RWHP after engine break-in. The car has just been an extra vehicle around the house and a simple project, but my attention has turned to other projects at this time. The only known issues at this is the front speakers are not working and it did have an issue with the electric power steering sensor, but after cleaning the contacts it has been fine for several weeks without a hiccup. Must drive to appreciate.

I'm asking $8,500obo. The aftermarket equipment on this car alone is worth about $6,000. That doesn't include the reman engine core and rebuild! This car has at least $10k invested. It's just time to move on to other projects. I have owned and built countless rotary powered cars in the past, so don't hesitate to ask specifics about this car.


These are some photos (sorry for the black/white on most, I'll get some new ones if needed).







I also have the original OEM hood, stock wheels/tires and an unmarried Access Port tuner available with the car as well. Feel free to ask questions and make offers! If you ask around, there are some forum members who've seen the car in person and know the quality of the work performed.

This would be a great weekend warrior, auto-x or TT car.

Left a few things out of that list of add-ons huh?

I will throw up there that this car also has Mercury Marine coils which bested both the Bosch and LS1 coils on the last little test we ran at Speed1.

I've driven this car and watched him build it, it's a great car for somebody to take and beat down some cones with!

I think its time. I love the car but my turbo Fb is going to finished soon and I cant drive all of them as much as I would like to. It has been a great car and I'm gonna miss it.


Vinnie, how is your car coming along? are you going to DGRR this year?

I forgot the car also has the entire Racing Beat intake system and I installed the engine at 158,000 and currently the car has 170,000 so its only 12,000 miles on the engine.

LOL! I think this could apply to many of us for the same reasons lol.

I told my brother about this car since he's been looking for one, but I haven't heard anything back yet.

If the car sells without the hood it will be for sale afterwards but I'm not going to remove it at this time.
