That bolt has given me such headaches. I'm glad to have it gone

Yes I am. This is why we have breathers, and seeing as this is miata TURBO im going to guess that the pan gets pressurized many times per minute in traffic.

Absolutely, to say that there is NO pressure in there is just silly.

There is less pressure than that which the oil pump produces. This means that there is zero pressure.

Yeah I would say if the pcv valve is questionable, and some pressure sneaks by under boost, the bottom end can definitely see positive pressures.
