yea i do. i think mazda said something about releasing it here in the US. Here is a little info thanks to import-heaven:

"Mazda Motor Corporation announces the release of a limited edition RX-8 Mazdaspeed Version, which is based on the RX-8 and fitted with Mazdaspeed* brand tune-up parts for enhanced sports driving performance. The RX-8 Mazdaspeed Version goes on sale from the middle of February at Mazda Anfini and Mazda dealerships throughout Japan.
The new RX-8 Mazdaspeed Version is based on the RX-8 Type S. Mazda has tuned up the engine using it's exclusively designed PCM (Powertrain Control Module) to match the modified intake and exhaust systems of the Mazdaspeed Version, as well as going through balance adjustments around the eccentric shaft in response to the lightweight flywheel. Mazda has also tuned up the suspension and fitted aero parts to further enhance sports driving performance. Those modifications, carried out under Mazda's strict quality control system, provide the RX-8 Mazdaspeed Version with well-balanced performance.
In addition, the RENESIS rotary engine has been further improved to deliver greater aerodynamic performance and even better sports car driving performance. Sharp, stable maneuverability is further enhanced while maintaining ride comfort, and the vehicle's exterior design supervised by the RX-8 chief designer expresses high performance.
The sales volume of the RX-8 Mazdaspeed Version will be limited to 300 units."


doesnt say much, but it doesnt look like it has f/i.

theres more info about US version here

lol, i think the "most tuneable" should go the evo, since its a 2.0L 4 cylinder, and you are getting near 500, and if you spend more you can get over 500. (but, we are talking serious money here) The Skyline and the Supra are both impressive, but they have bigger engines. But, i have HEARD(jus rumors ppl) that you can get a Skyline over 1500hp. I'm not sure if this is with or without switching to methanol. I don't know where i read this, but i heard that the Veilside Skyline was in a convention, and it was smoking ferrari's and a 900hp Supra. Even with the ATTESA system, that thing still had to be running around 800-900 or even more. Anyways, dat my

my opinion is the supra is by far the most tunable rice rocket in existance to this date. ok, so maybe one guy made a skyline that can kill 900hp supras, but how many Supras are out there that can kill such skylines? nowadays, its VERY common to see such power levels on the 2jz's, while in all other cars, its not even as close to common. lets not forget one other factoid, the 2JZ holds the record of the most HP with a bone stock bottom end, which was at around 900hp if im not mistaken (correct me if the numbers r wrong, but im sure it was around that or more). thing is, u have to take everything into consideration, bone stock engine performance and peak output, wat u can produce with strengthened internals, etc. plus, u have all been to the pro drag competitions right? with all the imports? just look at team streetglow and both of their solaras with 2jz's powering them, there is just no way to beat them. dont get me worng, i love the skyline, and the skyline is by far probably the most technological advanced rice rocket due to its ATTESA system and its ability to compete with the Supra like no other rice rocket. those 2 r the kings of their scene, but im sorry, the Supra has proven itself far more than the skyline up to this date. wat makes it better is how it can either be the skylines equal, or better without all the technological advances.

You need at least 3 paragraphs for it to become an accepted opinion.

No less!
