The 2 extra injectors are basically an intercooler.

Old tech from the 90's, piggyback catch the ignition/timing from the connector, when it sees boost it fires those injectors so no *need* for bigger ones. This way it goes rich in boost and lean and bounce like that.

When I bought the car, it was running something like this, strangely it was working with wideband going full rich too full lean so I told my wife that this engine will need replacement soon and it was good for 2 years of track abuse, EGT we're sky high too. Car was cheap.....

What are the chances that the block is still in tact, and the only damage is the oil pan?!?!?!?!

I mean, were you driving it and boost and kaboom? Were you jumping it an hit a big bump? Were you humping another Miata and got too excited?

oooooohhhhh I missed that you were swapping out the motor. I knew it wasn't your car but I thought perhaps you had finished the turbo installation and that you were test driving it or something.

Oh man that looks like a mess. I seriously doubt the oil pan is the only problem. They don't just explode by themselves yaknow

Haha no worries. Once I have the new motor in I'm leaving the wastegate disconnected... Not risking blowing up his new motor

Yeah was wondering if just the block might be salvageable but I doubt it... I was thinking future build with forged internals for the future but there's a good chance the block is trash haha

Yeah thats my plan lol... Plus there are a few parts I can sell separately. The valve cover is polished so someone might want that. I also have all the accessories so there may be a couple bucks there. I'm glad I took on the job it's good practice since I haven't pulled a motorin a few years and I am getting the trans and some cash... Not a bad deal lol

Yup, if you strip whatever looks decent and scrap the rest you should end up with a nice bonus. Just make sure you remind the guy that you're doing him a favor by "disposing" of the dead engine.

LOL, that bottom end is definitely blown dafuqup. This is why you don't run turbo kits with bandaids, kiddo's.

Definitely blowed up pretty good! I'm sort of dragging my feet a little with pulling the motor. Honestly I don't see the point in busting my *** over it. Everything is loose, just have to disconnect one more harness thats between the block and intake manifold. Might have to remove the intake manifold, not sure... Should have the old motor out tomorrow morning and may or may not start swapping in the new motor... We'll see how much pain my back is in once the blown motor is out lol

LOL that is some pretty awesome carnage. Tell that fool to fix his tune before his new motor looks exactly like the old one.

I'm guessing he didn't have the $1000 to pay them, and figured it would be easier to trade for the 6 speed like this.

If this was a 1.6 and I had something bigger than a 1 car garage I'd totally do this. And sell the transmission.
