The ultimate forced induction package for the MX-5 ND

BBR has extensive experience of turbocharging MX-5 engines since the late 1980’s, this latest development completes our portfolio of turbo upgrades for four generations of Mazda’s iconic sportscar.

The key element of the Stage 1 turbo upgrade is the utilisation of a bespoke latest generation twin-scroll turbocharger. The BBR twin-scroll turbocharger features  billet compressor wheel and lightweight, low inertia turbine in a compact internally wastegated assembly. This works in perfect harmony with the Mazda SKYACTIV-G engine’s ultra-efficient ethos, resulting in a highly efficient and responsive forced induction solution, with enhanced exhaust scavenging working as the original 4-2-1 Mazda SKYACTIV-G exhaust manifold.

The all-new ‘Stage 1’ turbocharger upgrade package increases power to a stunning 210 bhp, 81 bhp more than the quoted standard output. Equally important is the spread of power – more than 150 bhp is available from 4000rpm all the way to the 7750rpm limiter. This is allied to maximum of 197 lb.ft of torque (86lb.ft more than stock), which arrives at just 4150rpm, with over 150lb.ft on tap from 3000rpm to just under 7000rpm – an immense spread of performance that transforms the 1.5-litre MX-5 driving experience for the better, irrespective of road or track conditions!

Cleverly designed to install without intrusive mechanical or body alterations, the BBR Stage 1 turbocharger upgrade is straightforward to fit and reverse should clients wish to revert their car to standard or transfer the conversion at any time.
