POWER STRUGGLE

Lee, via email

In your most recent May issue one writer pontificates on more power from the MX-5.

While I donít believe thatís what the carís about, there is an interesting kit offered by tuners in the United Kingdom. Theyíre named BBR, and sell a naturally aspirated power package which includes different camshafts, valve springs and retainers, an exhaust header, cold air intake, and ECU tune. They say up to 40kW is liberated as a result of its installation when combined with a mid-pipe. Iím no engineer, but I do believe that is a lot to expect from just 2.0 litres!

An extra 40kW with a strong tailwind.
