BBR launches 220bhp Mazda MX-5 tuning pack

The Mazda MX-5 has always felt like it can handle more power than its maker provides. The current MX-5 is the most powerful ever to emerge from the factory, with 181bhp. But even that still isn’t enough for some. MX-5 tuning specialist BBR is one such and it has come up with a new package of upgrades that liberates 220bhp from the engine.

BBR’s Super 220 pack starts with the standard 2.0-litre, four-cylinder Skyactiv-G motor. Upgrades include a four-into-one high-flow stainless steel exhaust manifold, cold air intake system, high-flow K&N air filter, bespoke camshafts, valve springs and retainers and a StarChip ECU remap.

That lot increases output to 221bhp and 160lb/ft of torque. According to BBR, peak torque arrives 500rpm sooner than in the standard car.

The pack costs £2,895 plus VAT if fitted by BBR. DIYers can buy the bits and fit them at home for £2,235 plus VAT.

BBR also offers a Super 200 pack which includes the same exhaust manifold, intake system, air filter and ECU remap as the 220. The 200 pack liberates 202bhp and 165lb/ft of torque.

There’s a full range of suspension and brake upgrades to tighten the MX-5’s handling, as well. And everything is covered by BBR’s own warranty.

Honestly, we can’t think of many reasons not to buy some of these upgrades.
