ford doesnt touch the rotary branch of mazda. sorry guys, any ford comment is irrelivent.

o, and no rx8 will be factory turbo. its ment to be a platform for the 13b renesis.

the mazda rx9 will be a 16g turbo.

If they put a V8 in an Evo or something and sold it here it would definitely outsell the 4cyl turbo version.

Btw cornfuzed you're a moron, in case no one's told you before. If I were Ford I wouldn't "like" turbos either when I have a perfectly viable V8 platform that could be made more fuel efficient (like what Chevy did) and would sell more units than a turbo 4.

I can understand why the RX8 is 2 door with the ****** half doors though... "4 doors" are more marketable than 2 doors. But the lack of turbo (or even a NA 3 rotor 20B) doesn't make a damn bit of sense.
ford is done with big engines everything from ford with have a snail on it
they are replacing the 5.4L and 4.6L v8's with 3.0-3.8L v6's with twin turbo's making 310-450hp
and the v6's are being replaced by turbo 4's making 210-280hp

if you read you would know that not only dose ford love turbo's but they are going to turbo everything even the new lincoln is supposed to have a 400-450hp twin turbo v6 in it
as for torque being the winning factor of na v8's over turbo 4's, thats bullshit in low boost configurations with small quick spolling turbo's they have monster torque

The first one looked really cool when it first came out. The second one doesn't get the same reaction. An improvement, but not a great one.

Friend's bro bought one brand new. Was burning oil like a mother after only a year or so. Traded it in for a new Mustang GT
