• A BBR Supercharger Can Give Your NC Miata Up To 300 Horsepower

The 0 to 60 mph sprint also goes down to 4.8 seconds

While Mazda is preparing to retire the MX-5 ND generation, the old NC is still enjoying a lot of success. Mazda MX-5 tuning specialist BBR knows what an important model the NC still is and it is offering two supercharger packages for the sports car. They will be offered for the models equipped with the 1.8 and 2.0-liter engines built between 2005 and 2015.

What are the changes all about?
