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.

RX-8 AccessPort Reflasher (PREVIEW)
Cobb Racing's AccessPort is now available - allowing you to reflash the stock PCM (computer) so you can get it to increase OMP flow rates, lower temp that the radiator fans come on, and even fuel management for FI (turbo / Supercharger).
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.
