faulty rx8 engine - had it any value
« on: June 01, 2017, 10:54:54 AM »
Hi

Mate of mine has bought an RX8 with a view to a piston transplant [I know]

The engine has a common fault, starts cold but not hot.

So, does he just bin it or does it have any value?

It's still in the car and could be heard, seen etc. in the Midlands.

Thanks

John

I started with nothing and I have most of it left

If he gets it out...and lists on ebay...prob about £200 as people  want bits and or a play...i was contacted by a rebuilder as well looking for parts...
Sold both my engine in bits for £450 couple of months ago.
Just the pain of getting out.
