Yeah mate...annoying but learning and if you do it yourself you know its done right....alot of kids buy these mx5s and its there starter moding car so full of bodges...still contemplating repair or 2nd hand engine.
Annoying engine runs sweet lovely sounding with nice turbo ker choos...just smoke...its either valve stem seals or oil control rings....ive left it with some seafoam in the bores see if i get lucky....ever the optimist!

You know if your going to rebuild it your going to upgrade stuff

Get another block, then you can build a decent spare out of this one?
