My first thought was that it made the fail award extra failicious because the creator couldn't spell "overrated" properly. But the context didn't really make sense so I googled it and I believe it has something to do with World of Warcraft and the 40-year-old virgins who play it, and may not be misspelled.

As for oil frothing, this was a problem in all Miatas prior to '99 when they added the MBSP. That significantly reduces frothing which is great but the problem is Mazda took the MBSP out in the Mazdaspeed! I have seen a bare mazdaspeed head and it did not have the MBSP. I assume this is because they would have had to reingineer it since they dropped the compression ratio from 10:1 in the 01+ models to 9:1 in the mazdaspeed. In most casual driving circumstances, this doesn't really matter, and of course, it doesn't matter if you don't overfill but... if you overfill or are going to drive performance style, like autocross, then you need that MBSP in there to prevent the cams from whirring up the mixture and dumping oil into your intake.
Fae I really hope you're ******* with the OP here... really.

Doesn't MBSP stand for main bearing support plate? You know, on the main bearings? I know a few of us have custom pistons in #4, but otherwise we wouldn't be able to see if it was there with just the head off.

Things don't add up for this guy. Dipstick was reading correct... right? Yes. I chalk this one up to a shitty tune, or some other issue. Unless he can't read a dipstick. I feel this was going to happen whether he changed his oil or not. Clearly this guy is an idiot. Poor car.

dipsticks are incredibly complex and difficult to read.


I kept it going:

How rich should the ratio be to make sure the fuel is burning in the turbo manifold and not inside the engine?

How do the cams get oil into the intake?

Is faeflora the same moron that's on this board? The one that cut up his car? All I remember is him posting a video saying his car sounded weird, and he preceded to rev it up and down eleventy billion times.

Suck a dick fagnut. Having never cut a piece of metal before in my life my sawzalling of the frame rail turned out pretty well in the end. For the record that fucked up car engine sound **** was caused by the timing plate clattering against the cam gear. If I had indeed spun a bearing, I was fucked by that point anyways.

He is saying wal-mart confused him by selling a 5qt jug instead of the worldwide standard of 4qt jugs. So without paying attention he poured all 5qts in. Then he promptly noticed a loss of 3-4hp.
