How Does a Turbocharged 248-HP Mazda MX-5 Miata Sound?

Tuning association BBR now offers a turbo pack for a latest-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata.

There’s a lot to adore about a new Mazda MX-5 Miata, though some enthusiasts crave some-more performance. Although it’s lightweight and nimble, a bureau total of 155 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque leave a bit to be desired. That’s where Mazda tuning dilettante BBR comes in, formulating a package that costs $5,695 and bumps opening to about 248 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. The outcome is a zero-to-60-mph time of 5 seconds while tip speed is singular to 155 mph.

The BBR turbo pack includes a new twin-scroll turbocharger mounted on a BBR cast-iron twin-scroll manifold, a CO fiber turbo feverishness shield, high-flow KN initiation complement and a Starchip/EcuTek RaceRom ECU package. Other accessories like hoses and the replacement battery tray are finished in black to seem as if they came from a factory.

The package is accessible worldwide and those in a U.S. can get some-more information from BBR’s disdainful distributor, Flyin’ Miata.

“Having deserted all other forced initiation methods, a endless dyno and highway contrast has proven that a choice of a low-back vigour twin-scroll turbocharger, with a extended empty scavenging ability, is a optimal solution,” pronounced Neil Mckay of BBR. “It works harmoniously with a strange SKYACTIV-G blueprint and knock-resistant technologies, as is clear by a considerable energy total achieved during really medium boost pressures.”
