Philip Chan - 2004 Mazda RX-8

Oct 1, 2009

Philip Says
Here are some pictures and information about my '04 Mazda RX-8-I hope I can see it in Modified! I have to thank my girlfriend, Wendy, because she supports me modifying my car, and she buys me an issue of Modified every single month!

We Say
This was one of the few submissions we got that had action shots of the car at the track. We wish we got more entries like this one. What's not to like about a well-built street/track car, especially an RX-8. Long live the rotary!

Engine
SR Motorsports complete pulley kit, Mazdaspeed cold-air Intake, Borla after-cat exhaust system, custom on/off fan control, 15W50 MOTUL racing oil, Mazdaspeed oil cap, GReddy radiator cap
