    Mazda RX8

    Just a very quick question that Google has been unable to turn up an answer for me.

    Do the RX8s need rebuilding after 60k in the same way that the RX7s do? If so any idea on the costs involved?

    my mate was looking at one of these the other day, and im sure(dont quote me) he said they did, or some kind of work atleast. I can ask tomorrow if no one comes up with an answer. Im sure it was something to do with the rotary bits losing their shape or something along those lines.

    there a few specialist mazda tuners around the country, might be best sourcing one and asking them. They can advise you on tuning it at the sametime as rebuilding it etc, and from my experience with dealers will be a damn site more helpfull too
