How much boost were you running? I didn't see a timing controller in that list of mods you posted.

Wonder if you were pressurizing the hell out of your crankcase and the rings weren't sealing.

Is this the 2nd motor you have blown?...Do you do any tuning/testing before you go out and red line it with tires smoking?

....This forum is a wealth of knowledge, you should take advantage of it

He tried to turbo one Miata, couldn't get it work, fucked up the car (and made a million STUPID posts about it) and then bought a second one about two weeks ago, put a turbo on it and blew the motor. I think it's time for a new hobby.

You're a ******* idiot. Maybe if you stopped to figure out what went wrong you wouldn't continually repeat your mistakes.
