I got a vvt engine and a complete new turbo setup that's going in.

Guess I will be selling my cams then Does the msm valve cover fit any other miata head?

I see nothing. It usually shows up around the quench pads, and they look fuzzy with carbon but fine to me.

You should have got a VVT motor and Borg turbo form the get go. There is nothing special about the MSM motor. Its a 95 block, 99 head, with a tiny turbo that will put down like 200whp at 15psi, and an artifically low redline. The value of an MSM is in the fact that you get the whole car (bilsteins, t2r, axels, sport brakes, sways, springs, racing harts) for the cost of a regular NB of same year mileage.

Your best bet is to check the head to make sure its good, slap on another block and sell the whole setup to someone else to recoup the most money.

Do yourself a favor and get rid of those racing harts for a nice 15" setup.

Now on Axis 10 spoke rims with 1600lb rating per rim... no problems now... have 3 sets for 2 cars, got rid of all other rims... I use 225-35-18 on back and 215-35-18 front, Staggered, really BMW Z4 looks....

I had to look up what quench pad is. On these pistons, is it the outer face adjoining the valve relief cuts? I guess you mean the melted area on the piston below (supertech).

Are you referring to the spotting in the carbon?
