BBR ND SUPER 200
(2.0-litre ND models only) +45bhp & 26lb.ft - 5.65s 0-60
The Super 200 upgrade is suited to the flagship 2.0-litre Mazda MX-5 ND models and has been designed with complete forward compatibility with further BBR engine upgrades that will be launched to market in 2016.
Key components of the BBR Super 200 include:-
- BBR Cold air intake system
- BBR stainless steel 4 into 1 exhaust manifold
- BBR high-performance intake and exhaust camshafts, upgraded valve springs and retainers.
- BBR StarChip ECU Remap and ProECU
Designed to enhance the everyday driving experience for enthusiasts wanting the ultimate from their new MX-5, the upgrade represents the culmination of over two years of BBR’s in-house mechanical and electronic development work on Mazda’s advanced, direct-injection 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine, which despite producing 160bhp at 6300 rpm and 153 lb.ft at 4950 rpm as standard (when measured on BBR’s dyno) is noted for being unwilling to rev.
BBR’s ‘Super 200’ upgrade addresses this characteristic, significantly boosting peak power by 45 bhp to a mighty 205 bhp at 6950 rpm, allied to an impressive 179 lb.ft at 4950 rpm (a gain of 26 lb.ft). Crucially, where the stock engine is reluctant to attain higher revs, the BBR Super 200 equipped motor excels above 5500 rpm, offering intense, exhilarating performance and response all the way to the 7150 rpm limiter.
Initial performance testing indicates that (when fitted with the optional performance exhaust components) the 0-60 mph time is reduced from 7.3 seconds to a scorching 5.65, meaning that whatever the challenge the BBR Super 200 equipped Mazda
MX-5 can really punch above its weight.
However, numbers only tell half of the story. Such is the quality of BBR’s development work that the power and torque output of the Super 200 equipped MX-5 exceeds that of the stock 2.0-litre Mazda throughout the rev range, providing an additional 30 lb.ft of torque at just 3500 rpm, making this a highly user-friendly conversion designed for everyday driving.
The addition of a 2.5 inch diameter high performance TIG welded stainless steel exhaust centre section (£495.00) allied to stainless steel 2.5 inch BBR silencers (£395.00) boosts peak power to 214 bhp and torque to a mighty 183 lb.ft and provides the ‘ND’ model of the MX-5 with an exhilarating soundtrack designed to electrify any drive. Two silencer options are available from BBR, a quieter GT option for customers who prefer a subtle more muted note, or a Supersport option delivering a true sportscar note.
Exclusively from BBR, the Super 200 is available at £2795+VAT fitted (including dyno testing.) A DIY version is also available including programming/diagnostic software and OBD lead is also available at £2195.00.
