2004 Mazda RX-8 1.3L Rotary Engine Start Up, Quick Tour & Rev With Exhaust View - 84K (7500RPM Rev)
2004 Mazda RX-8
The RX-8 has a 1.3L Wankel Rotary Engine which makes an impressive 197 HP while paired to a lame 4 speed auto.
When it comes to an RX-8 of this year, best opting for one with a 6MT which also the engine is tuned to deliver an additional 41 HP (238 HP total)
Its impressive that an engine of this displacement can deliver so much power. But these rotary engines are by no means fuel efficient. MPG's are comparable & sometimes worse to that of a V8. Interior is a weebit cramped, few mechanics out there specialize in repairing these engines if it ever needs servicing, & overall reliability of the RX-8 hasnt been great. I would much rather go for the much simpler MX-5 IMO.

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

Part 12: 13B Rotary Engine Rebuild - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration
Just as I promised last episode, it is finally time to build the engine!
Part 12 of my RX-5 Cosmo restoration covers the entire process of building
the 6 port 13B Mazda rotary engine. While this engine is a hybrid of GSL-SE
RX-7 and Cosmo parts, the process is the same for any rotary from a 12A to
a 13B NA, 13B turbo, 13B-REW or any
other variant of the 13B. This video shows the whole process of the engine
build, starting from measuring the rotors and covering everything else
including clearancing the side seals, assembling the rotors, complete
assembly the short block, setting the eccentric shaft end play and
installing the front cover and everything underneath it. It's probably the
most complete engine build video outside of what you can buy from the
vendors, and as such, is an hour long. After this one, I'm going back to
videos under 20 minutes. But for now, grab a beverage of your choice, sit
back, and enjoy.

RX-8 WARM START PROBLEM! *UPDATED*
Ive since then took the car and had it fixed. Turns out the starter wasn't
turning quick enough and causing the car not to start. Spark plugs were
pretty bad too.They said the compression was a little low but not enough to
worry about i guess. $800 later... it starts right up.
So I've owned this car for about 2 1/2 years and it has been fine till
about a few months ago. I noticed it took my car a little longer than
normal to start but never really thought anything of it. It takes about
4-6 secs to start cold but if the car is warmed up and i try to start back
up, its a no go. dealer said it sounds like compression loss but cant be
sure till they look at it. if anyone knows what might be going on or had
something similar please let me know in the comments. id appreciate it.
Mazda RX8 R3 - Sound of the Rotary Engine
This is just a quick demonstration of the unique rotary sound within the
cockpit. This is NOT a 0-60mph / 0-100kmh demonstration so don't go all
"omgz so slow" as I didn't try for that, it's solely for sound.
I'll post a 0-60 in the upcoming weeks.
