RX8 With Straight Pipe and GReddy Cat-Back
Just thought I'd upload a quick vid I threw together the other day, nothing
fancy. I just made it to try and illustrate the sound of a Mazda RX-8 with
a straight-pipe (no cat) and GReddy Cat-Back Exhaust. I placed the camera on a small tripod
about 3-4 feet away from the tailpipes to avoid audio distortion. Honestly,
I think I'd like a much deeper and less raspy Exhaust note, maybe a Borla system.
[EDIT] - Sorry for the slightly weird distortion effects at the beginning,
that was the YouTube anti-shake feature. Panning smoothly with your hands
after a Monster Energy is difficult.
-Also, someone asked what the rims are; I mistakenly said they're 10" wide
in the video, they're actually 9.5" wide, 18" Axis Halo rims.

SP Greddy Exhaust Rx8
quick vid of the sp2 Exhaust from
greddy. I had to have the Exhaust
hangers modified to make the Exhaust
fit. I took it to a local shop in houston. you can get longer rubber
hangers as an alternative too but i went with something a little more
Rotary Engine Breakthrough?
The Wankel engine always held out a lot of promise, but never was able to
fully deliver on those promises. It was never very fuel efficient, and the
Exhaust temperatures were very high.
But now an independent car tech thinks he has stumbled onto what held that

RX8 exhaust with no muffler or resonator
First was muffler removal. Then went ahead and removed the resonator that
is right behind the catalytic converter. Note how the idle always settles
back down into a distinguished noise, now that there is no resonator
smearing the pulses. Keeping cat for emissions, and backpressure to open
the last 2 of 6 ports.
I'm waiting to post some higher rpm sounds, once engine #3 is broken in.
This video is engine #2, I parked it for 2 years and only had a couple
fillups. Unfortunately I'm on engine #3 now, never fully broke in engine #2
for higher rpm sound capture.
What its like owning a 3 Rotor 20B RX-7
I have one of the most amazing custom RX-7s in the world. I want to share

RX8 Ownership Video
This is the 'Product Update' dvd that was sent to me when I owned my RX-8.
It has some useful info about how to handle a flooded motor, and just
preventative maintenance. I do not own the license to this media, and it is
