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.

4 Rotor Mazda RX-8 Time Attack Car Revving Engine At Seven Stock 2009
This is 5 glorious minutes of a naturally apserated (individual throttle bodies) 4 Rotor RX-8 time attack car revving its god like engine for a massive crowd at the 2009 Seven Stock event in Irvine California. Turn up your speakers!
RX-8 vs. 500 HP BMW M5 at VIR. Mazda RX-8 wins.
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 instructors.
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.
