Just to show you the inside and out of my car, plus how it sounds.. The new vented hood will eventually be painted Sunlight Silver. Rims are from Rays (17 lbs ea). No racing, just regular driving.
Secondary point of this video is to show that my BOV is extremely sensitive and can open and close with as little as -10 PSI. Just about every BOV on the market requires 0 to 4 psi to even start to open up. I never even have to hit 0 psi to do it. See my other videos for BOV info
Turbocharged RX-8 engine teardown and rebuild
With three days to pull the engine, rebuild it and reinstall, is Charles R
Hill from Black Halo Racing (BHR) up to the task?! View the video to see
what we find when the engine with 51,000 miles is pulled.
More details and photos of this rebuild can be seen at:
PS: I admit I didn't hold the camera stable enough for the first day of
footage. Gave me a damn headache editing the footage.
Synchronic BOV on Turbo RX-8, part 2
This clip shows the anti stall valve. The rest of the video came from the

Second session on Saturday, June 14, 2008. Finally let me pass after 1-3/4
laps. Both the BMW driver and I are advanced, high-performance driving
The RX-8 is completely stock except for a B&B muffler and Hawk HP Plus pads
on the front. It does not have traction control or stability control.
Tires are original stock street Potenzas. No doubt the M5 is stock too,
and this has more to do with weight than horsepower.
Camera is a Creative Labs Vado cheapcorder stuck to the windshield with a
suction cup cellphone holder. Video was recorded upside-down due to the
mount, and was transcoded to rotate it. Quality suffered.
