        Leave it in. My EG6 didn't come with aircon from factory and it makes me sad when people remove their perfectly working system haha

      After being at Cadwell park yesterday and watching cars give it some round a track for the first time I hereby renounce my place in the stance game... Bring on the racekor!

        It's not the look I'm going for, I still massively prefer the stance look and I will be getting away with the tightest fitment I can still IIf I'm building a race car there's no point keeping the interior just hinders performance

        Hardly, the only real reason you'd fully strip it, is if you were competing where every bit helps. But you're only really going to do the odd track day.

        Id like to get the biggest bang for my buck, stripping would compliment every mod I do to the engine

      Anywhere else I can look for s14's? Piston heads seems to add about 2k on car value, not many on auto trader, anything like 'honda parts for sale' for drift cars?

        according to Wikipedia which everyone knows is pure Gospel the black top is slightly more powerful than the red top s13's ran these from 1991 however they are different and not as powerful as the sr20's found in the s14 or s15

      Anyone owned or got a mate that's owned an RX8? Think I want one but apparently theyre thirsty as hell and the newer ones are like £500 to tax p/a

        My mate bought one for £900 and got it rebuilt for £1500, decent car for decent money now. Uses a lot of fuel but is a damn nice car for the money. Nice interior. The engines seem t like being thrashed once warm, its the ones that are driven like a piston engine that seem to have issues

        They also commonly develop starting problems, and easily flood the engine.

        The main issue as Daf said is Flooding and its not as simple to cure as a piston engine. They are a brilliantly reliable engine if they have been looked after and looking after a rotary includes a good thrashing or is causes the rotors to coke up then bust tips and what have you. The 8s are considerabley more reliable than the 7s but then they are slower so get some lose some.

      can you make coilovers with hard spring rates reasonably comfy by setting them to the softest damping?
