I was reading through this thread, and like most experiences in life, it made me think. I figured mine were bad, because I think I've discussed her a while ago. From what I remember, someone told me the only downside is having to add oil all the time, as it gets worse and worse, until a rebuild is the only option. So, is that true? Mine does seem to be getting worse. Redline shifts seem to be giving out bigger clouds than before.

eventually it will smoke all the time, but they are usually slow to die

Same thing happened to mine. It was very slow and I drove it for well over a year like this. The downside was having to add oil. The guys at Rotary Performance told me that it is okay just make sure to keep the oil up and make sure it does not overheat. It will get worse but it dies a slow death.
