So i might be trading a 2004 gsxr 750 with 24xxx miles on it for a 2004 rx-8 with 78xxx miles on it. It needs engine and transmission replaced. It comes with new transmission with 6 month warranty. I will have to purchase an engine. I have looked around and have found some for around 1500 - 2500 I think. The car looks good (from what i can tell in the pics). He said the car has only been sitting for about 2 months and nothing has been stripped and that it should crank up.
So my question is, he said the apex seals on the engine went bad causing the engine to lose pressure after first start. He also said the transmission was good when he bought it but it messed up because he moved it around the drive way with the motor like that.
Does this sound right? I have never been around anything with a rotary engine and do not have any mechanical skills in rotary engines. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks so much
