Default 2004 rx8 problems please help!!

hello, i have a 2004 rx8 renesis 13b 6speed trans, ok the problem is the car wont idle for more than a few seconds, if im driving it and take it outta gear and put into neutral it instantly dies. it has the racing beat intake duct kit, full racing beat 3 inch exhaust and headers, the engine light is never on but if i really get on it hard in 1st through 3rd the engine light starts flashing then goes off a few mins later. it has new ngk laser iridium plugs new racing beat air filter, and a fresh oil change. never use synthetic oil. the car is great when the gas peddle is to the floor but any other time it just floods and dies, oh yeah the pcm has been reflashed by mazda... any suggestions.

You should seek service from Mazda. I know there are a lot out there who render services for Mazda RX-8. That is if you really don't know how to fix it, better seek for an expert, they say. Mazda RX-8 is a good sports car, being the only car in Mazda’s lineup that currently employs the rotary engine. But I heard that the the car is going out of production this year, along with the Renesis rotary engine that powers it. According to Automobile magazine, all production of the RX-8 will cease as of June, but Mazda has decided to give the car a proper send-off with a special edition, called the Sprint R.
