How Does a Turbocharged 248-HP Mazda MX-5 Miata Sound?
Tuning company BBR now offers a turbo kit for the latest-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata.
Thereís a lot to love about the new Mazda MX-5 Miata, but some enthusiasts crave more performance. Although itís lightweight and nimble, the factory figures of 155 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque leave a bit to be desired. Thatís where Mazda tuning specialist BBR comes in, creating a package that costs $5,695 and bumps performance to about 248 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. The result is a zero-to-60-mph time of five seconds while top speed is limited to 155 mph.
The BBR turbo kit includes a new twin-scroll turbocharger mounted on a BBR cast-iron twin-scroll manifold, a carbon fiber turbo heat shield, high-flow K&N induction system and a Starchip/EcuTek RaceRom ECU package. Other accessories like hoses and the replacement battery tray are finished in black to appear as if they came from the factory.
