    Hi guys, not sure if this is the right section, just looking for advice/opinions really. I have a '97 1.6, one of the 'lame' ones that put out 90bhp. It's totally stock at the moment, however coil overs, clutch, and one of those Halfords heart-shaped air fresheners are all on the list for the...

    Back in 2007 I bought a NC 1.8 Icon in Storm Blue. By 2008 I traded that in for a Galaxy Grey 2.0 Sport as I intended to Supercharge it so wanted to start with the top of the range model. Long story short I had it Cosworth Supercharged but after a log and painful story I sold it. I am sure a...

    Hi all I fitted a M62 to my NB 1.8 a while ago running a very home brew single throttle body set up in the stock positing with a dump valve. see the thread here http://www.mx5nutz.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=348425&hl= This worked great apart from the noise. After constant complaints from...

    I'm going to turbo my mk1, she's a 1.8 uk model, I've got a new rad, manifold, exhaust and garret turbo with vacuum and oil and water lines etc I'm going to install it all but then do I have to change the timing etc to be able to drive it to skuzzle for the ecu and mapping? Josh

    Hi all been looking around for an mx5 project to supercharge but I cant decide between the mk1/eunos or the mk2.5 (not a fan of the mk2). There is a 68,000 mile 1995 mk1 close by and a 2003 mk2.5 with 109,000 miles. Is mileage or age more important here? I much prefer the look of the mk1 but i'm...

    Before I picked up my little '5 I never would have even considered modifying a car- now I've spent more than the purchase cost in mods and I'm considering following the turbo charged route!! You've all corrupted me! Looking at T25 turbos on eBay and sturovo bits I am considering taking a...

    I know Nick already has a solid 'fan base' here, but I'm so pleased with the work on my car, plus his can do attitude, his generosity of giving away hard earned knowledge to morons such as my self. That I thought he thoroughly deserved another big up. I bought this '93 S-LTD Eunos td05 a few...

    Hello!! 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...

    As many are probably aware Marty from Mighty Car Mods, has an MX5 MK1 which he is slowly but surely modifying into a budget track car. There are a few videos reviewing the car, and other more comprehensive segments showing their efforts of adding a turbo to it. A video has recently been...

    Hi I've owned my 1.8 classic for a while now and inevitably I'm on the hunt for more power. Being a 1.8 the turbo conversions have seemed expensive, even with the churbo (Chinese turbo imports) as the ECU needs to be upgraded. I don't want to be ploughing £1000's more in to the car as it...

    Hi guys, clutch is giving up the ghost and I believe is currently a stage 1 organic (more than likely exedy). Is driveable except when on boost, so its not coping with the power. Was thinking of going to stage 2, but all of the clutch's I can find all seem to be paddle clutchs? I was after a non...

    I thought it was about time to put an update on here with the car status. Been having some difficulties at home with the other half and had to put the car up for sale. However we had a good chat and are going to try to make it work. Keeping the MX5 had no influence in this decision - HONEST...

    Hi Guys I have an inter-cooler to install shortly to my 5 (i already have a Toyosports inter-cooler)... what would be peoples recommendations for piping? Would it be best to get a company to make up custom piping for this (quoted £200 +VAT) or buy a universal piping kit and do it myself? Any...

    Greetings The time has come to boost my 5 and I have started to stockpile my parts based on the Nutz and miata turbo forums. I do have a budget but I won't take shortcuts as I want a good, reliable set-up. My car has not missed a beat since owning her so I will do my best to keep it that way...
