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
Cold Start 2004 Mazda RX-8 with Short Tour, and Test Drive
A friend of mine let me make a cold start video of his 2004 Mazda RX-8. I
give a few stats in the video, but to go in a little more depth. It's a
1.3L Renesis dual rotor engine "rotary" very tiny engine putting out 238 horsepower and 159 lb
ft torque. I also give a short tour, show the engine and details, and we
take it for a drive. I get some cool shots inside, and some drive bys.
Also an Exhaust/revving clip at the
end. I know I had a lot of requests to do one of these cars. An full, in
depth review/tour will come later on. Enjoy!
RX-8 vs. 500 HP BMW M5 at VIR. Mazda RX-8 wins.
Google+ SUCKS. I'm sorry but I can no longer see or respond to comments as
I have blocked Google+. I will not be forced into Google's FAILED and
flatulent social network.
All future videos will be posted on Vimeo.com instead.
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
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.

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

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.
