Autoblog's SEMA embedded journalist, Eric Bryant, just can't resist a good engine display. Here's one from GReddy Performance Products that should answer the biggest criticism of Mazda's nifty RX8 - not enough power and torque.

This Turbo kit for the RX8 rotary increases horsepower by more than 29 percent, to 261 hp, and bumps the torque figure from a limp-wristed 125 ft/lbs to a beefier 176 ft/lbs, while flattening the power curve to give more mid-range grunt. Like the sign says: "Add boost, torque and thrills!"

It's all good, and you can install the kit in a day (or so). More after the break.
