no difference on the pistons and rods? thicker rods? lower compression? is everything the same as a n/a. no changes to accommodate the turbo system from factory

for future searches,
there is nothing magical about a 04-05 mazdaspeed turbo motor. it's essentially a 99-00 motor with some extra plumbing to support the turbo.

So the 04/05 MSM motor has 9.5:1 compression pistons like the 99/00? And is it's ability to handle boost the same with it's factory internals? I've heard 10psi for the 99/00 motors. Got me a little worried as I'm hitting 11.9 now on my 99 motor.

or does it have 9:1 compression pistons like the NA 1.8's cuz "its all the same." is a little vague and by fact of the na and nb motors having different pistons it's wrong.

We don't have time for whining pussies. Ask a question that you can't answer yourself and maybe someone will act like they give a ****.

I agree, the replies are "not nice".... If I talked to a Judge or officer that way, I would be in Cuffs!

we don't have MSM's here unfortunately, only MS 3 and MS6 with the 2.3l turbo engine, 260hp I think


don't know if this contributed anything to this thread, but I was sipping my coffee and had a tickle in the fingers

Why do realtors think it's ok to advertise themselves everywhere?
