The AVO Turbocharger kit was designed to work for both RHD and LHD models in all countries. Extensive tests were performed in three countries on several different models, ranging from the Japanese Mazda ND 1.5L to the American and Australian Mazda ND 2.0L. The Japanese ND spent countless hours on the track under extreme conditions. AVO has a huge advantage over any competitor with the use of a local race track. This allows AVO to test products under high heat conditions gaining insight as to how the product and vehicle will perform while pushing the limits. While testing the Australian Market Mazda ND, AVO spent 4 months and over 10,000km tuning in various conditions. While testing throughout America, AVO utilized 91 octane gas ensuring the car will perform as a dependable daily driver. These tests are necessary helping give confidence to the end user. Anyone investing in the AVO product will know that it will perform and maintain its reliability no matter where you are located.
AVO designed this turbocharger kit specifically for the Mazda ND. AVO includes all the necessary supporting components. The turbo kit incorporates an AVO18/49 water cooled turbocharger with an internal wastegate using a 6psi actuator. The turbo mounts to AVOs impressive custom stainless steel cast exhaust manifold. The exhaust manifold is ceramic coated combating excessive heat under the hood and also allows for the standard heat shield to be fitted back on if modified slightly. The exhaust manifold was designed to bolt directly to the stock header and AVOs upgraded ceramic coated stainless steel turbo outlet (also referred to as a downpipe). Keeping all that pressurized air cool is no easy task. AVO has you covered by including one of their industry leading aluminum bar and plate front mount intercoolers. The intercooler kit uses AVOs world-renowned high quality reinforced custom black silicone piping.
AVO did not leave anything uncovered when making this turbo kit. AVO includes all the water/oil lines and fittings making this a true direct bolt on kit. No modifications are necessary making this kit an easy install. This turbo kit has been designed to bolt up to the stock air intake box base. AVO includes their flat Panel Air Filter and Air Box Lid to maintain the OEM look. There is no need to worry about the fuel system. During extensive testing AVO spent a lot of time ensuring it will work with the standard fueling system for a complete bolt on and drive setup. One of the most sought-after features of this kit was AVOs ability to maintain the OE look! The oversized front mount intercooler has been specifically designed to fit with the standard bumper beam without trimming or modification. When the hood is popped, it would be hard even for an enthusiast eye to recognize anything that is been modified or tweaked for additional power.
Tuning is accomplished by AVO Turboworld via its Power + Reflash Tool that simply plugs in to the OBD Port and allows you to save your standard NA stock car file. Then by following the on screen commands, this will allow you to flash your car with the AVO Stage 1 base map that is provided with the purchase of the AVO Turboworld turbo kit.
So what can you expect from this kit?
Testing with the stock exhaust system with the AVO turbo kit showed an increase of 35% horsepower. By adding a full 2 1/2" exhaust system the AVO turbo kit will produce a 50% power increase on pump gas, and you will see even better gains if you have access to higher octane gas. All this additional power tested safely on the stock fuel system!
The stock motor has blistering high compression ratio at 13:1, allowing fantastic low-end response when used in conjunction with the AVO turbo kit. This high compression ratio does make gas quality even more important than ever! Turbocharging a high compression engine and maintaining reliability was a little easier due to the all new SKYACTIV motor features. An incredibly well made combustion chamber along with a direct injection fuel system allowed AVO to take tuning to another level while maintaining the reliability of a stock engine. While many people may associate it with the old motors from Mazda, there is absolutely no comparison! The entire design of the engine was improved tremendously from anything previously made by Mazda.
Mazda focused on much more than just the engine. The technology surrounding the ECU has grown light years from previous models. Cylinder knock detection and variance in the AFR (Air/Fuel Ratios) react incredibly fast. This lightning speed feedback allows the car to adjust ECU parameters better in extreme conditions. What does this mean for you? Your car will maintain efficiency at a safe level ensuring the most power and throttle response. The new direct injection improves both power and gas mileage tremendously. AVO has managed to maintain fuel consumption same as stock, and in some cases better mpg under normal cruising speeds on the highway. Unfortunately mpg is going to be dependent on your right foot and how much fun you are having. We know from experience!
Why AVOs Turbo kit over other Turbo kits?
AVO Turboworld has been manufacturing bolt on turbo kits for over 30 years. AVO's goal has always been to manufacture the turbo kit with the same look and feel you would expect out of a high quality OEM part. This saves you money during installation and having to source or modify custom components when adding a turbo kit to your NA model.
The AVO turbo kit includes a cast Stainless Steel Manifold giving customers a product they can depend on. Intercooler tanks are made from cast aluminum for the best flow and reliability and all intercoolers are pressure tested from the factory. Every unit is then powder coated to make sure the product is protected from any debris or grime from daily road driving.
Brian's Driving and Racing Feedback Summary. It's a blast, pics below from our first autocross event with the AVO kit. Strongly recommend our upgraded triple pass radiator to handle the heat that comes with making so much more power. Standard install gets you over 200 hp at the wheels, versus about 140 hp at the wheels as delivered by the factory. Smooth and quiet, can use our RoadsterSport RACE muffler with this setup and not be loud at all because the turbo itself is such an amazing sound blender/resonator. Turbo used in this kit is a fast responding ball bearing unit used by AVO in applications making 400 hp and more so it will easily handle low boost application in the Miata without being stressed. Autocross Racing our AVO Turbo ND!
