    seems like bnoon from MSF is now setup to ship to Canada. he also has a thread going that shows EXACTLY how to make the bolt. depending on shipping, it might be a good idea for us to do a group build or a group buy from bnoon.

    well here they are.... the bolt i believe from his write up is an

    M12 x 1.5

    the size of the hole on the side is 1/16"(he says #52) and the one down the center is 11/16" (he says its 15/16" in his write up)

    i still have to clean up the thread a little where he drilled thru the side.(and yes when you put a light down one of the holes you can see the light coming out of the other hole.)

    wow... with all the trouble getting these from the states, why not just make one here yourself with a drill press? might be able to do a nicer job than that with the right tools

    I thought that piece was something totally special

    that's what we're thinking too that we could do it ourselves, but doing this requires a drill press and drills bits as I think the guy said he can only do like 2 - 3 bolts per bit...if I have access to a drill press, I could do this myself in about 10 min.

    Group build anyone?

    i would agree with making it myself, thought it was something more special, it was only $20 though.

    The guy did a complete 'hackjob' on that bolt . You guys might be better off ordering a hollow bolt.Such as on www.racebolts.com the Ti M12x1.5 hollow drain plug for example...then all you'd need is a carbide drill bit for the side channel hole and a tap and dye set to repair any damaged threads.

    ...just a thought.

    So, I have a quick question about the Turbo problem.

    I followed the "Diagnostic procedure" last night to see there was any white/blue smoke from my exhaust.

    I drove home normally (a bit of a spirited drive, about 30 minutes, no traffic jams etc...)
    When I got home I let the vehicle idle for 10 - 12 minutes and I did not see any smoke at all from the exhaust.

    But this morning, when I started the car, the exhaust was smoking (white smoke) for about 1 - 1 1/2 minutes. Then it dissipated. I am assuming this is normal because the vehicle sat all night? Can anyone with more experience shed a little light for me? I would greatly appreciate it.

    if it's the turbo problem, if you are idling it will not stop, at least not for couple minutes. I just had the problem fixed with warranty, a new turbo and it's all good now. No smoke for almost a month already..and it feels good

    Looks like they found the root cause of this.

    I saw that and posted a reply with this link

    http://www.streetunit.com/StreetUnit.../sumzregrp.htm

    Prior to having my turbo replaced they said there was a PCV design update but not for sub zero climates, not sure if this is a further update on that one, but all I know it was a cheaper solution than replacing turbo?

    Maybe this one is for all models regardless of climate?

    I think this is for the PCV system, not the EGR system. I'm sure we'll get to the bottom of this eventually.


    Where did you hear that this PCV solution was not for our climate?

    There are places in the US that are just as cold as us. I haven't seen the full TSB so I can't comment on what's written in it.

    If I saw it last week, I'd have just printed it off and walked into a dealer to ask about it...

    Can any Mazda Tech verifiy this?

    I've already sent my e-mails off to MCI.

    Now I'm just playing the waiting game. If I have to I'll go in on Thursday or Friday and say hi.

    I've been dealing with MCI for a while racing my Mazda6 and running TM6.

    Back in November the PCV update might of been different at the time, I was told it was not applicable to cars in colder climates due to moisture freezing in the system. This is obviously a newer TSB but I never saw the one I was told about from MCI in November I just had the my smoking turbo replaced.

    Hold off unless you have an issue.

    Dealers get very upset when you come in thinking you know what's best.

    I feel the same way when people tell me how electricity works, and have no clue as to what they are talking about. (I'm a Electrician BTW)

    I had my oil and coolant changed at the dealer this morning and they told me to keep an eye to see if my turbo smokes. I wonder if this is a topic they keep hearing about from Mazda Canada....
