Just because it ended on a rather crappy note, I still had some really good highs off this thing so Id say yes it was.

Sorry for the bad luck. Don't feel like digging today, what were your final boost numbers?
Perhaps a built miata engine is just not capable of holding the boost you were running. In for the final autopsy report.

I was running of wastegate when it happened. 24psi. Just went outside, cut the alternator belt and started the car. Engines fucked royally. Seems like my built engines only last 2 weeks. Whatever. Its over.

Who is building your engines and what exactly is he doing?

I would be more than a little upset over this. Probably be knocking at his door asking for my money back.
