No, you're not going to find 3.308s out of anything. Mazda only made like 200 of them, 25 years ago.

agreed there is little chance of this come to fruition but it's a chance none-the-less.

I manually spun a bb turbo for the first time last weekend - whoa. I was amazed how easily it spun. The real question on that Turbonetics - is it a full bb? I've seen more than few t3/t4 hybrids advertised as bb that are only bb on the turbine side. If it's full bb - that's a good deal (especially if that 1 yr warranty is good). Definitely worth paying a few hundred for quicker/sooner spool IMO.

Progress?
No not really. I keep buying stuff like a big fancy fuel rail, crank trigger wheel, and some more I don't remember. Friday I'm sending parts for Cryo.
