I'm glad that your club could help me with advice about my MX5, I'm looking to keep the body pretty much standard, although I've seen some pretty cool hardtops for the winter months, i'm very interested in improving the power any tips? much rather if I can learn from someone elses mistakes Wink

Welcome along!
One mistake I have learnt from is don't keep changing your mind once started, in other words make a plan and stick to it.

Hey Lou. I've had a couple of MX-5's. You can probably see my last red one on here somewhere.

Hardtops are gonna be from £300+ really. They're not cheap but transform the look and feel of the car.

As for one's from the USA I'm not sure what you mean. If you mean an import carbon fibre jobbie... good luck! $$$$$!

Power wise there is not a lot to be had whilst staying naturally aspirated. You can do the exhaust and induction for noise like any car but the real power is supercharger or turbo conversion and that can be big money unless you can source 2nd hand parts for cheap. They get snapped up quick!

Get yourself on the mx5nutz forum if you haven't already. A world of info and ideas there.

Cheers
Howard

Hi Howard, the hard top I am wanting is a Miata "Big Window" don't know if you've seen one, I have family in the states so that might reduce the cost a little I hope. Will register on the nutz forum thanks for the tip. Lou x

but turbocharging/supercharging gives you far more power per £ than trying to get more power without! Smile

It wouldnt be difficult if you could find a complete kit as I know for hondas you can buy kits that come with everything needed so you literally bolt it all on.you would need an ecu witch is remappable to get it set up properl.
