    S2000 cos it can take a T3 Turbo without having to modify the engine, that'll take you up to bout 430bhp, but with the RX-8 you get those cool suicide rear doors!

    i don't know dude, depends on your life style. if you want to move friends or family and still have a sweet car than the mazda, but if want to move you and just someone else and having an engine that revs like hell than the s2000
    i like the mazda my self better, since it has rotary and are known for their upgrades.

    Plumber60 you are dead wrong. You can not put any turbo kit on the S2k with out changing the engine. The compression ratio is too high and you will not beable to use pump gas. You want low compression for turbos and the S2k has some of the highest compression around.
     
  5. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    I'll stick with the RX-8...
    S2000 r good and all...but i prefer my Mazdas...
     
  6. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    S2000. If this were between S2000 and RX-7, I'd take the Mazda
     
  7. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    i cant decide, both cars are sweet.
     
  8. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    The S2000 looks sweeeeeet as heck thats what Id take plus you can put the top down!
     
  9. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    No you are dead wrong. There are turbo kits that can go with the S2000 without having to change the engine! Ive seen it done a number of times!
     
  10. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

  11. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    Well....sheesh....thanx

  12. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    RX8 no doubt!

    The only "japanise" vehicle that has won Le Mans is mazda 787 (over all win, by the way), in 1991 or 1992, next year, no rotary powered cars were able to compite, superiority? i say yes!

    if i had the money ill be in the list wainting for a red RX8.

    The S2000 can take a forced induction without changing the engine, look at Comptech's supercharger kit. Anyway, it's a close call but i may take the RX-8 just cuz it has a rotary and i don't know what the 350Z's V6 is capable of (will it take a turbo??). And i love rotaries anyway, but the Z still deserives respect.
     
  16. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    The VQ35DE is capable of 400hp. There's also a VQ35DETT

  24. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    u got that pussy part from da guy's sig. i'll take da s2000 over da rx8. though i'll take a rx7 over them 2.

    when i get my rx7, i gonna whack in 2 more rotors, remove da pop-up headlights and in its place, put 2 big mo fo truck turbos. then to top it off a massive truck intercooler and 4 low boostin turbos 2 make up 4 da lag off da truck turbos.
     
  25. Re: RX8 or S2000 ?

    Right Im not that good at counting but how many turbos is that? 6? The RX7 has a hard time running 2 with low boost yet alone 6.
