Default New guy first thread

Hello Miata people, I purchased 1992 clean as a whistle, put a turbo on it and discovered bad rings. Looks like a rebuild soon. I have learned alot from the forums and threads but the more I read often the more confused I get. Thanks for your patience.

you put a turbo on it and discovered bad rings or you melted your ringlands because you didn't turbo properly?
