I will have to get some pictures later tonight.

From what we can tell from looking at it. our best guess is that the cam had a flaw in it and pulled a piece of the head with it. eventually snowballing into a big enough piece to stop the cam in its place.

Re: New Miata

Everything I have seen on the motor/trans at this point is speculation.

Anything from a 1.2L putting out 120hp to a 2L turbo with 230hp+

My guess is that it will be the 2 liter with about 180hp no turbo.
