The factory bearing is fine and should serve you well. Exedy sells a refresh kit with a throw-out bearing made by KOYO, which is the same manufacturer as Mazda's OEM bearing. Clutch kits are weird...

Good guy or not, he should be able to tell you what measures are failing, and what conditions are established as part of the test (what engine load, speed range, accessories in use, etc). You are...

I've since updated my pre-mix to 8oz per fill-up, or roughly 0.5oz of oil to 1 gallon of fuel. No smoke or excessive fuel trimming, so I'll stick with it for now.

Sounds like your clutch-release (throw-out) bearing is on its way out. Replacement requires transmission removal, may as well replace the whole clutch assembly if going that far in.

Do you know what ratio they were using with success? Right now I'm pre-mixing 0.25oz per Gallon of fuel, granted I also still run the OMP (stock calibration) with a SOHN adapter.

All of mine tested good, including the purge valve solenoid so I didn't need one. While ordering other stuff on RockAuto I saw a normal solenoid on the EVAP tab for cheap and ordered it up. It tested...

Sounds incredible! That is a wide powerband, even if it takes a bit to arrive to full-song (6k) -- not many turbo setups have such a strong 'power shelf' for 3k RPM. I'd be curious how well a EFR7xxx...

Exactly why I went with a reman. Even if doing a custom build with a builder, I'd start with a reman and just take it apart to modify and clearance as fit. Many builders are shit and the ones that...
