Turbocharged Mazda RX-8, day at the dyno
Finally brought her in for Dyno tuning. I just wanted a conservative tune that was safe across all RPM ranges. A few months later I found out the fuel pump filter was clogged up. When the filter was changed, the tune from this Dyno session ended up being way too rich. So I think another 20 whp would be easy to get out of the car without any other changes. BTW the greddy turbo doesn't flow enough air for the engine (this turbo kit was designed for 6 psi Boost, and I'm running it almost twice that). Assuming there is a 15-20% drivetrain loss on the rx-8, that puts me at 312 - 326 hp with a very conservative tune with that clogged fuel pump. Car is running with standard 93 gas.

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.
