Default Time to De-lurk, Finally

Long-time lurker and long-time Miata driver (8 years and counting, 3 Miatas, 1 parts car/potential LeMons car). It's time to say hello.

And this being a turbo Miata forum, I guess an intro is in order for my turbo car. But before that, I hear from Savington that MSM owners aren't looked upon highly here apparently. So yeah, I have to say that I am one (don't hurt me, please! ). If it helps any (or maybe not), I had it altered/upgraded by Flyin' Miata after oil starvation claimed my rod bearings back in May 2007. Now it has a built-engine from them with a FM2 kit (GT2560R) and a lot of other goodies over the past year or so. I couldn't be happier (well, at least until my next major mods!). :P

Here are some photos of my MSM.

Excessive blowby and a stock PCV valve that can barely hold stock boost.

Thanks. It's running TEIN Flex (9kg/6kg). This, however, is only a temporary setup. These will be transferred to my NA eventually and will be replaced with something else, mostly likely FM's AFCO setup since the shock dynos point out that it will fulfill my needs.
