Our Flagship upgrade for the RX8 is our completely in House Designed, Stage 1 Turbo Upgrade Kit.  This Turbo Upgrade kit gives the RX8 the power that it was lacking from the factory with a mind blowing 200KW (approximately) at the flywheel. Our turbo kits have been rigorously tested both on the street, the strip and the track for over 4½ years. One customer has even managed to clock up over 100,000km since having his turbo kit fitted. We have customers from all corners of the country traveling large distances to have one of our highly acclaimed and much sort after Stage 1 kits fitted.

If a Turbo Kit is not for you then maybe you might consider some of the other upgrades we have such as our Throttle Control Chip. This chip completely changes the way your RX8 will drive, giving the car noticeably quicker acceleration, without actually increasing the power. This is really hard to explain, the best way to experience it is to have one fitted to your car and take it for a test drive, if you can’t notice a difference we will remove it and there will be no charge, however we are yet to remove one…

Thinking of attending a few track days or you just enjoy some ‘spirited driving around the place, then we strongly recommend upgrading to a second oil cooler to help keep the temperatures under control.  All Australian delivered RX8’s only have 1 factory oil cooler, on the left side, which makes no sense considering the average climate in Japan and USA is a lot cooler then Australia. This oil cooler upgrade gives you extra cooling as needed for performance in our harsh Australian climate.

Have you added an exhaust or Intake kit to your RX8? To get the most out of the existing modifications you have fitted, or even just that bit more from your standard RX8, we can now re-tune your factory ecu. Factory tunes are notoriously rich and very general. Solid power gains and even better fuel economy can be found simply by re-tuning the factory computer. We are also able to increase throttle response making the car feel faster as well.

Racing Beat REVI Air Intake Box, $725 or Fitted $1063

To Suit No Turbo RX8. Racing Beat offers our extremely popular REVi Intake System for all RX-8 applications. Designed to offer performance improvements without sacrificing drivability, the Racing Beat intake system is the final result of hundreds of hours of dyno test sessions and on-road testing.

 

The major components of the REVi Intake System include: an OEM style air box assembly, custom-designed K&N air filter unit, aluminum mass air flow sensor tube, and a tuned-length air inlet horn. Unlike many of the aftermarket intake systems on the market, the Racing Beat intake system retains one of the important mesh screens to aid with the even distribution of airflow across the mass air sensor. The inclusion of this screen minimizes the possibility of “rough idle” issues that may occur if both stock screens are eliminated.

 

Working with the design team at K&N Engineering, a high capacity air filter was developed that allowed us to position a tuned-length intake horn inside the filter body. This filter design allowed us to fine-tune the length of the air horn to maximize the performance potential. We have noted that many aftermarket intake systems for the RX-8 incorporate a large air filter, which is then connected to the intake manifold with a length of plastic or metal tubing. In many cases, the size of the filter that has been selected will dictate the length of tubing required, severely limiting the critical tuning importance of the air intake tube!

 

 

Racing Beat Ram Air Duct, $295

RX8 racing Beat Ram Air Duct. For Use with REV-I Intake Box. Racing Beat offers our Ram Air Duct for use with the Racing Beat REVi Intake Kit. The inlet of this duct is positioned in the mouth opening of the Mazda RX-8 to allow cooler ambient air to be force-fed directly into the REVi intake tract, converting your intake into a true “cold-air” intake system! Designed by Racing Beat, this high-density polyethylene intake duct mounts under the nose of your RX-8 and directs air into the inlet of the REVi Intake Kit. This duct can also be used with the stock intake box or aftermarket intake kits to direct cooler air into the engine compartment.

 

 

RX8 Upgraded Ignition Coil Packs – $165 ea

These Brand New Upgraded Coil Packs are to suit all models of Mazda RX8. These coils are a upgrade of the Mazda factory units and are a direct replacement for the standard oem units. We are one of the only shops currently selling these in the countr

The Billet Sandwich Plate is compatible with all 1971-92 12A and 13B engines, 2004-2008 RX-8 engines and the 1999-2005 MX5 engines.

 

The Oil Sandwich Plate Adapter unit allows for easy installation of sender units for most popular gauges (1/8-inch female pipe for oil pressure and 3/8-inch female pipe for oil temperature). Due to clearance and fitting restrictions, this adaptor is not suitable for use on the 1993-95 RX-7and 2009+ RX-8′s.

 

The machined-aluminum adapter will accommodate either mechanical or electrical senders. The adapter mounts immediately below the oil filter assembly and includes a mounting O-ring and detailed installation instructions. Easily installs by simply removing the oil filter! Gauges, senders, and adapter nuts are not included.

RX8 Suspension Upgrades

Racing Beat Front Sway Bars Complete with Heavy Duty End Links, $409 or Fitted $650

Complete with Heavy Duty End Links

 

Racing Beat Front Sway Bars , $302

RX8 Font Sway Bar Racing Beat-designed sway bars reduce chassis roll during cornering and increases your car’s sensitivity to steering inputs, thereby improving maximum cornering power. Substantial engineering effort, select steel alloys, and precise manufacturing processes are combined to produce top performance components. All Racing Beat sway bars are finished with a distinctive, red powder coating that provides a smooth, glossy protective layer. You can be assured of many years of superior handling performance with these proven bars!

 

 

Heavy Duty End Links, $107

The addition of a larger aftermarket sway bar can increase the stress loads on the original OEM sway bar endlinks. To combat these increased loads, Racing Beat has designed a set of OEM style aftermarket endlinks to absorb the increased demands of a larger front sway bar.

 

Incorporated into the design of these links are larger 12mm mounting studs and matching retaining nuts. The sealed bearing is self lubricating and should offer many miles of maintenance free driving. Each set is sold as a front pair.

 

These endlinks are intended for street and autocross applications and are highly recommended for use with the Racing Beat bar. Although these upgraded endlinks can be used with the stock sway bar, we believe that the original links are adequately suited for use with the stock bar.

 

Due to the larger diameter studs provided on the Racing Beat endlinks, both the sway bar ends and the mounting holes on the chassis must be enlarged to accept the mounting studs. Provided in the endlink kit is the appropriate sized drill bit and a drilling guide to accomplish this task. Also included are detailed instructions complete with drilling suggestions and torque specifications.

 

 

Racing Beat Rear Sway Bars, $339 or Fitted $449

Racing Beat-designed sway bars reduce chassis roll during cornering and increases your car’s sensitivity to steering inputs, thereby improving maximum cornering power.

You can be assured of many years of superior handling performance with these proven bars!
