RX-8 Engine Swap...

He took out the Renesis for a piston engine?

Weird to say the least.

Saw my 2nd RX-8 today on the way home from work and followed it for a few kms before the highway jammed and I took an exit. What a sweet-looking ride...

Yes that car is nice. Test drove one last month. The salesman told me don't be scared to push it to the redline. I took it to the redline and bark second gear. Feel sorry for the guy or girl buying that RX-8.

He didn't take it out in exchange for a piston engine. He replaced his 13b with a 20b: 2rotor for 3rotor.

Presently own 5 Mazdas. What a joy!
