Our loss is your gain, a project we started and didn't finish. In brief, Mazda brought over a 'body in white' bare shell and built it into a drift car at a cost of $100,000. No expense was spared including carbon doors and one-piece complete carbon front end. Also included Cosworth built 20k billet crank 300 hp normally aspirated dry sump 14 to 1 compression motor (8 quart oil sump is in the trunk). Body was fully stitch welded at every seam, all suspension points have added gussets and then cage was added and entire shell powder coated for result that is the most stiff MX5 shell ever made. Many expensive extras include Wilwood pro pedal set, Motec M400 ECU, AIM full digital dash, new Ohlins coilovers installed, and on and on. When we acquired this car the plan was to make it an XP racer. Original 2.3 motor too loud to race that class so we had Cosworth make us another 20k 2.3 motor but this time lower compression for turbo. Turbo is complete BEGI kit. Ran into issue that available manifold from BEGI could not support enough turbo to exceed 270 HP on the dyno, so we waited for new BEGI manifold for bigger turbo. And we waited....and we waited. Over a year before the manifold came available and by that time we had moved on to many other projects and now we are finally back to this great NC, have recently added upgraded fuel pump and changed to E85 fuel and dyno is now 380 HP at the wheels, that's over 400 at the crank! Also includes the original 2.3 liter high compression motor. See thread in our forum for MANY more pics and details on custom rear end and more.
New Cosworth Motor!

I have to say that your website is one of the cleanest, most functional and easy to use. There are a lot of independent part sellers that have horrible websites and it was a joy to use yours and even explore the customer car gallery and the good win build page. Thank you for a great experience.

First I want to again thank you for working with me on this muffler. I
have almost 100 miles on it now, and it has a nice mellow sound. a little
Bass, but not too much. A little louder than stock, but not too loud. Plus
it is nice inside the car with the top up. I am happy so far I bought this
I belong to a local Miata club, and am very active with it. When Spring
comes I will tell everyone how much I like the muffler, and how great you
are to work with. Maybe I can get some extra business for you.
