These tests work as you can see in the video. So the next time you have a P0420 or someone tells you your catalytic converter is bad you'll know what to do to find out if that is indeed the case.

DIY Rx8 Seafoam Cleaning
MAKE SURE ANNOTATIONS ARE ON. This is a DIY of me seafoaming my Rx8. This is being done on my 2004 with 98k miles. This is the second time I've cleaned my 8, the first being at 70k. I hope this is helpful! All the instructions are on the annotations. To make sure everyone's clear, you inject each port twice in order to relieve some of the strain from the starter. Should be roughly 4 oz per port, 8 oz total. You can pour the rest in the tank to help clean up your fuel injectors.

Does Lacquer Thinner Clean Catalytic Converters? -EricTheCarGuy
Link to Scotty Kilmer's Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5icTmYItwiE After watching Scotty's video I was curious if it would actually work. Since we know from my video on diagnosing catalytic converters that the catalytic converters in my Subaru were bad, I though it was a perfect opportunity to try out this theory. I used about 1 quart of lacquer thinner to about 7 gallons of gas. I drove a total of 200 miles and tested the converters. The testing showed a very slight improvement but nothing that I would call significant. It was worth a try. I can say that I did not notice any issues with drivability during or after the test. It may not have fixed the problem, but it didn't seem to cause any other problems either. I feel the check engine light that came on was just a coincidence and not the result of putting lacquer thinner in the gas tank. Here's some useful links for you.

RX-8 Rotary decarb part 1
[UPDATE February 25, 2015] My engine is now at 57,000 miles, That's 32,000 miles since this seafoam. Running great. I never drive this in the winter months. Of course, I take the "preemptive strike" approach to this car as far as maintenance and upgrades are concerned, rather than the "if it aint broke, don't fix it" approach. I've only performed the decarb procedure once, at 25,000 miles in 2010. There's been the usual ongoing controversy on RX8Club.com over whether ANY decarb procedure is warranted. However, the water or water/meth(aka windshield wiper fluid) alternatives seem to have some merit. I'll probably plan to do 1 or more water/meth decarb procedures in 2015 rather than seafoam.] [End of update] Decided at 25,000 miles, it was time for a decarb. Used seafoam rather than Mazda's cleaner. I placed two tubes in the can of seafoam, and ran each line to a separate vacuum port, so I could do both rotors at the same time rather than separately. After sucking up all the seafoam, let it sit for a little over an hour. Then I put a cup of Idemitsu in the empty seafoam can, used the two tubes again, to help lube the rotary chambers during initial startup. Afterwards, low end torque seems improved, and throttle response is way up, most notably when starting out from a stop. No bogging down, other than when I clutch poorly ;). Idle is PERFECT. While idling, there's no vibration from the engine whatsoever. Like new. And as expected, the check engine light came on afterwards, and stayed on for about a day before going out. Update 03.08.12: Some have questioned how well the Catalytic Converter has held up after the seafoam cleaning.. First off, 14,000 miles later, it appears to be fine. No power loss or other symptoms of a failed cat. However, that doesn't mean that the life of the cat hasn't been shortened. Looking back, I should have disconnected the cat before this procedure, and will do that in the future, and would advise anyone else with a cc and doing this procedure to do the same thing. For those that have questioned whether or not I should have introduced seafoam into the engine at all: Mazda has a decarb procedure of their own, using a product similar to seafoam.
