    Nada. Waiting on the new machine shop to free up so I can pay em and have em press in my sleeves, do my bowl work etc.

    Which is fine. Cause 2020 fucked me with work pay and with LG pulling out of the mobile game, I lost my job in April and just started a new job in the middle of June.

    Hopefully September is the month where the machine shop is ready for me. Performance Engineering out of Cincinnati, OH will be doing the machine work. And then assembly will be done by Tommy Foley of TC Customs (a good friend of mine in the mazdaspeed world) and myself. Hoping for first startup before spring

    Good luck to you Sho. Just got mine back from the machine shop a few weeks back. Got my head on and had a few guys came over this weekend to help with the timing. Got the turbo,, fuel rail and some of the accessories on. Soon to be going in the car.

    Block and head are at the machine shop. Sleeves are installed. The block is being oringed then the short block will be assembled. The head is getting bowl work and then Tommy will be assembling the head and slapping it on and timing it. Not sure what the eta is to completion, but work is being done!

    Can't wait. I haven't driven the ms6 much on the account that I can't go wot since the stock clutch is now slipping under heavy load as soon as tq eclipses 330. So currently running a spring pressure map and my girlfriend drives it a couple times a week to run errands while I'm at work to keep the battery charged up and fluids moving.
