Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics - dan jones

If things go to plan for Dan Jones, his 2006 RX-8 will be the most pow­er­ful nor­mally as­pi­rated ex­am­ple of the breed any­where in the UK. He says: ‘I’ve fit­ted an AEM in­duc­tion kit, Rac­ing Beat ex­haust and manifold, opened up the ports mas­sively plus there’s a light­weight fly­wheel – I’ve also in­cor­po­rated a lot of the up­grades for re­li­a­bil­ity too, such as an up­rated cool­ing sys­tem and a baf­fled sump. The car’s Maz­daSpeed bodykit is ex­tremely rare in the UK while the four-point strut brace is unique here; I im­ported it from the US. One thing that wasn’t worth do­ing was fit­ting a big brake kit; the stan­dard sys­tem is so good that it’s hard to im­prove on it.’
