If you read the original post, it's directed more towards those who started out naturally aspirated

I know how much downtime one can have waiting for parts, after breaking stuff etc. And on this forum with a lot of "big power freaks" breaking stuff seems pretty common.

Please include, year, engine, management, cooling, type of FI (i.e. supercharger, turbo, model of turbo, boost level etc.), yeah, you know.
With the MSM, the factory has already taken care of most of this (though the engine management isn't that great).

Haha, yea I knew I was exempt from that. I was just kinda kidding around, obviously mazda worked out quite a few of the problems many people here have. Do you have anything done to your MSM? I'm shootin for 13's once I get my intake and up the boost to 11psi, running low 14's right now.

*Edit* and our stock engine management blows. It gets the job done but is very crude. Hydra is the choice of the majority of MSM owners, really cleans it up and evens out the power delivery.

FM intake, FM DP, Thermal catback, GReddy RS BOV, GReddy PRofec B (7 psi low setting, 11 psi high setting), Koni adjustable coilovers, Work VS-XX (going on next week), Yokohama S Drive 225/35/17, minor stereo upgrades

I'm getting hesitation from 4400-4900 at 11 psi. I have the O2 mod that I'll be installing when it gets a little warmer out. If that doesn't fix it, I'll dump the money into the Hydra and run bigger injectors.

Yea I can't stand that damn hesitation. From what i've read it seems like people either love the O2 mod or think they wasted money.

mine isnt my daily, so i have like 1500-2000 turbo miles, but i beat the living **** out of the car every time i get into it, and it hasn't failed me yet. just had to weld the ebay mani 2 times, but the car was still running fine, just wasnt making boost. i have a VERY small oil leak now, but the full boost 7500rpm shifts every time i drive it probally have something to do with that, lol
