Thank you. You have rated this product.

Direct-fit for the 2006-2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Reduces oil temperatures dramatically. Recommended for any MX5 that sees hard spirited driving, autocross, or track use. Full kit with everything you need for installation. Places the cooler in the bumper opening ahead of the radiator.

Cooler
The cooler is a 19-row stacked-plate unit made by our friends at Mishimoto. It is available in either Sleek Silver or Stealth Black.

Thermostatic Sandwich Plate
Uses a Mishimoto billet aluminum thermostatic oil sandwich plate for fast oil warm-up and to ensure that oil temperature is never over-cooled on cold days. This makes this kit suitable for street use. The sandwich plate has one 1/8" NPT port for adding a gauge sensor.

Lines
Includes our own oil lines which are pre-made - no hose assembly required. The hoses in our kit are braided nylon with durable -AN fittings. We prefer this hose type over braided steel lines because the steel lines are abrasive and will cut through nearby parts when they rub against them! These lines play nice with everything else.
(Some photos show red/blue fittings which used in the prototype kit. Production kits are black hose with black fittings, as shown in the pictures above)

Brackets
Mounting is handled by heavy duty yet lightweight aluminum mounting brackets that we designed in-house. The brackets mount to existing holes in the chassis, no drilling required. Hardware included. Our modular bracket design allows you to mount the cooler by itself, or in conjunction with our MP62 supercharger kit's heat exchanger!

REVIEWS

I just installed the Borla exhaust on the MX5. Sweeeeeeet! Thanks, Andy

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
