From Friday I will be the proud owner of a 2016 MX-5 2L manual with just 20K on the clock. I am excited! This followed 6 months of watching YouTube, reading reviews, test driving a Stage 1 BBR RF (I am too tall).
I intend to use her as a daily driver (London based :-( )
with regular trips to...
I took Maggy (my beloved '94 MX-5 Mk1 1.6 BBR Turbo) in for her MOT a few weeks back and there were a few mechanical issues (now sorted) but they couldn't test the emissions as they couldn't hold the revs at the right level.
I'd noticed she wasn't running right and would often rev very...
Right, this is long overdue on going on here, and Im sure lots of you have seen mine & Emily!!!'s latest completed project, but for those of you that havent, here it is. This one has been a real labour of love over the past couple of years since we bought it, from an impromptu ebay purchase from...
Stumbled across this on the 'bay, are these quite rare these days? Power output is a fairly modest 150bhp if my memory serves me well.
Just won a bbr t25 on ebay tjis afternoon, had my heart racing lol. Who was bidding against me for it? One of your auto bids went in on the last couple of seconds and made me freak out a little :laugh:
Just hope now it's better than the last turbo i bought, wish me luck folks.
Just a quick question: I will upgeade the intercooler on my old BBR and an older version of J&S Safeguard active knock controll unit will be installed at the same time. I use the highest octane (100RON) gas a available and the car runs on 7psi on original BBR ECU. Is it safe / beneficial to set...
BBR Turbo Stage 2 Review
Hello Guys and Gals,
I have been meaning to write my second review of my stage 2 BBR turbo conversion for a few weeks now - however with Christmas on the way I have been too busy shopping with the other half…. Unfortunately not for car parts!
So about a month...
I collect my MX5 tomorrow and I am considering the BBR Star Chip ECU remap for 599.00. It increases BHP by 8 but more important;y increases the torque to 10-14 lbs - Has anybody got this package - What are your opinions of it ?
I collected my Mk3 from BBR today, thought I would post a review of the work I have had done, namely the 'Super 200' cams they have recently released for the 2.0 NC and NC2/3 MX-5s, for anyone else who is considering having the work done.
My car went into them with some modifications already...
The other month I picked up my MK3 MX5 NC 2007 2.0Ltr Turbocharged from Neil @ B.B.R GTi.
I decided to have the Stage 2 Minus the Exhaust so I had the Standard turbo with uprated Sparks, Air Filter, The Garrett Core Inter-cooler and the Uprated Clutch Kit! I also had Neil's full...
I got a '90 LHD Mx5 with BBR conversion done back in '91 so I consider the car as "original LHD BBR" which is pretty rare I think. I want external sign of it being BBR so any version of original BBR badge/sticker/whatever BBR stuff wanted!
My BBR turbo manifold is cracked :( any BBRnutz out there ever replaced theirs? If so, where did you get it from? Any general recommendations for a good SS manifold fabricator? I'm already getting in touch with Sturovo and BBR, I would like a few quotes though.
You may be well aware of this already, but BBR has released details of two not turbo kits for the mk3 this morning - stage 1 and stage 2.
To be clear, I have absolutely nothing to do with the company, but have noticed the press release this morning, which I've copied and pasted below because I...
Finally bit the bullet and had my 2011 2.0 SportTech modified by BBR a few weeks back.
Very pleased with the result especially when it made 182.3 HP on the rolling road.
Engine is smoother and much more responsive, mid range greatly improved and top end is brilliant. In my mind its...
Decided to fit a boost gauge into my BBR turbo this afternoon to check everything is running ok (and because they look cool!) but upon doing so I found a bit of an issue.
The history around the authenticity of my BBR is pretty vague but it looks like it has been retro fitted to a BRG Limited...
