yeah they are.
you can have reliability if you don't boost it or you can have power if you do, pick one but can't have both.

RotaryNews.com has confirmed that there will be a recall on the 2004, 2005 and some 2006 Mazda RX-8s. Not every RX-8 will need a new engine, only those that fail a series of tests, including a new vacuum test. The replacement engines will correct for issues ranging from flooding, hard starting, complete loss of compression, and use of Synthetic Oil in hot climates. For those that do not require an engine replacement, the ECU will be reflashed to provide for more lubrication (an already released Flash). Recall notice letters will be sent out to owners on a staggered schedule. At this point some dealers do not know about the recall, as the bulletin has not been sent.

Jeremy Barnes from Mazda Public Relations stated: "We will not walk away from any Mazda owner." Jeremy also pointed out that other issues that have escaped on the Internet as of late were only part of the story. He hopes the recall action by Mazda will show owners that Mazda is doing the right thing after all.

We at RotaryNews say, if you own an RX-8, check over this list of TSB's (Click Here). If your car is experiencing any of the issues listed on that page, print out the ones that apply to you, and bring them down to the service department while they check your car for the other recalls. We, at RotaryNews also say: "if in doubt, do NOT use Synthetic Oil." For those of you that are "Rotary Gods" (!) and know what you are doing, it is OK, other wise stay away from synth, and use the good old Dyno Juice.

If you want a V4 buy a Honda Interceptor.

I could be wrong and she is telling the truth...

That car was making in excess of 325 RWHP, I know that I built (although never got paid for) the manifold that is on that car. I don't know how "awesome" of a chick that makes her in my book, although Jen is engaging. Originally there were some problems with the manifold having a problem cracking the welds, that was resolved with some extra work. Not a big deal but a pain in the *** for them on the dyno despite the cracks it made 325, I am sure it made more after that. It had a rather large turbo more than capable of making 400 RWHP.
