Mazda tuning company BBR has released a new turbocharger kit for the ND Miata that boosts the sports car’s output to an impressive 210 horsepower.
BBR’s new Stage One turbocharger kit for the ND Miata consists of a twin-scroll turbocharger developed in-house, along with an air-to-air front mounted intercooler, a new ECU with performance software from EcuTek, a BBR downpipe and a high-flow K&N induction system, among more. The turbocharger makes around 7 psi of boost, which BBR says is well within the limits of both the Mazda 1.5-liter engine and the turbocharger itself to ensure reliability and longevity. The kit equates to an 80 hp boost for the 1.5-liter engine offered in the UK and other select markets. BBR’s turbo kit for the 2.0-liter models, first released in September of last year, boosts output of the two-seater to 248 horsepower.

“BBR’s decision to use the twin-scroll turbo technology has been validated by the positive media and market feedback on the initial conversion for the 2.0-litre ND models,” said BBR director Neil McKay. “For the 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-G engine, the main development effort focussed on turbo matching to suit our desired twin goals of transforming the everyday driving performance, whilst maintaining the rev-free nature of the smaller power unit.”
BBR is charging £4,995 (about $6,700 USD) for its 1.5-liter ND Miata turbo kit including installation, while a DIY version with all necessary hardware and software is available for £4,395 (about $5,300 USD). The turbo kit for 2.0-liter equipped models carries the same price tag.
