Are you kidding? blow through carb is ******* gross. Especially when MS3 is cheaper than the carb alone!

They said it in the first paragraph
"the need for complicated electronic fuel injection scares many enthusiasts away"

Which i read as
"Ignorant people be like carbs r awesomesaucy"

so im reading this:

https://www.miataturbo.net/engine-pe...antness-85172/

and while its discussed that working vics is good for some power somewhere on an NA, is it worth the hassle on a boosted motor?

plug or keep vics?
