2005 Mazda RX-8. 6-Port 230HP Sport Trim. 6-Speed Manual RWD

55k miles. Runs very strong! Clean NV Title in hand ready to go!

This car is a blast to drive! Car is all original and has never been tampered with or heavily modded.
Subtle Mods include, AEM Intake and GREDDY Cat Back exhaust.

Everything in/on the car works. A/C, heater, sun roof, cruise control etc...
I have also fixed some of the common annoying problems with these cars, for example; leaking tail light housings, cold/hot selector knob on climate control etc...

** I Premix my fuel with this car!** I have used only 91 Octane or higher if available and premix with Idemitsu Rotary 2 Stoke oil. This is a very good thing!

Ok, here is some bad news... I suspect one of the coolant jacket seals has gone bad. Upon shutdown, the coolant de-pressurization will seep coolant into one of the rotor housings causing a hard start and some coolant smoke only at warm up. At this point, after warm up you'd never know it has this issue. This needs to be remedied and requires an engine rebuild to repair. I do not have the time or money to take care of this car anymore thus, why I am selling it.

All Recalls have been performed by Bountiful Mazda in SLC.

I have replaced all the following in the last 5k miles;
Water Pump
Both drive belts
Battery - Red Top Optima
Brake pads front and rear
Spark plugs with OEM NGK Laser Iridium
Brand new Cooper RS3-S tires all around (4k miles on them)
All 4 coil packs and wires
Updated higher power starter per Mazda service bulletin

As you can see maintenance has been solid and I take really good care of this car. I change the oil every 2k miles with Castrol GTX Conventional 10W-30 for winter and 10W-40 or 20W-50 during summer.

All in all, I am asking $4000 OBO because of the water seal issue. These cars are becoming more rare every year and they're a blast to drive! Its worth more IMO but let me know what you think! I'd be happy to
