Yeah I've done my research, Petit chargers are Bad Ass!!! I think he was pushing almost 340 to the wheels.

Let me correct myself. His stage II is pushing 300+ then stage III will be pushing almost 370+ to the wheels. Stage III is in the works. I just love the sound of the supercharger with the rotary. Sounds like an F1 car!!! LOL

Depends, I think they are plenty more turbos on the market than superchargers.

Hey and I'm not being a fanboi either!!! I drove my wifes $38,000 Acura TL ALLLLL last week while she was gone on business and I tell you, you really appreciate a great car when you sit in one. The RX8 is just that!!!

And you're right, its been 4 years, and I love this car just like the first day I purchased it.
