Customer Question

Hi ... I just had a compression test done on my 2005 RX8 and it came back between 470 and 495 kpa per cylinder. They told me it is so low that I need a new engine. Is that true.

It is still at the dealership waiting for me to decide on the new engine. The want to offer me $800 for it but I think I can get more on the open market. It only has 59,000 miles and no other problems.
