Hey fellas,

I've got an S2 rx7 12a and an rx4 13b to refresh and thought I'd just check what the low down is these days on engine closing kits.

I was just gonna pull the trigger and get them from Xtreme auto parts. I've used them before with great success, but thought I'd check here first to see if anyone has the inside track.

Atkins are out for now, too expensive with the shitty exchange rate and shipping.

Any input is appreciated. Cheers guys.

Anybody know who's got good prices on soft seal kits?

Xtreme auto parts prices seem fair, I'll just go with them unless someone has some input.

actually i have one from them on the way too// i think the water seal kit may be short on the oil control ring rubbers ( compared to atkins )
though saying that im wondering if atkins have worked out they have left out the filter pedestal O rings , and rx8 rear main seals are shit

Thanks for the input mate, I hadn't considered the control ring rubbers. None of the soft seal kits I've previously bought have included them.

I'm using the Atkins ones in the 12a and they're only a few thousand kms old so I think I'll reuse them. Atkins love spruiking the feasibility of reusing their viton control ring seals. Although I will be using new control ring casings.
