Default My little hope for my first RX8

So it begins when i bought the car from a guy in southern cali and he claimed it was rebuilt and shown papers and everything and me especially believing him since the car had been at 110,000 miles and that motor had been replaced at 96,540 miles and now is at 130,000 with rough idling, some dies out, and feels like its on one rotor but not only that after finding out ignition coil was not sending spark and checking everything but compression test i feel like the motor is blown and that theres just no point in checking compression, either way im going to but still if anyone got any ideas please let me know and not let me spend 1500$ on a rebuild kit and rebuild it my self. if there is a better way to go at apex seal failure like r&r or rebuild or something else let me know. My car is RX8 04' 6MT, i see why rotaries are addictive because to be honest i wouldn't be trying to fix it if it wasn't such a car you can just rip around in.
