The detail on the whole install is outstanding.
You can see why the 2.5 swap is so popular even more so when you strap a turbo to the side of it.
Over 400hp on a standard 2.5 engine… It’s insane considering they came with less than 200hp from factory. 🤪
It just goes to show how the NC is to my mind the best MX5 they made… Yeah yeah.. I’m sure I’ll get stick for that comment from the NA & NB owners. 😅 But.. seriously on a standard 2.0 engine you can run 300hp all day long.
It’s great power for a street car without much work in the grand scheme of things compared to a NA / NB build.
TX Track NC has since made a few improvements to the engine, which has netted some serious power.
Their old turbo setup was;
Standard 2.5 Duratec
Tial .62 AR
They have built a fully forged 2.3 engine using the DISI block with the 2.5 head.
Spec details they gave me;
2.3 DISI Block
2.5 Cylinder Head
Mountune Springs / Retainers
Aged 925 Head Studs
Garrett GTX3576 Gen2
Tial .83 AR
Coupled with a mountain of supporting mods to keep the car running efficient at them power levels.
This has netted an amazing 646hp 🔥🔥🔥🔥
I couldn’t even imagine what that would feel like in a MX5, It’s a good job they use a sequential gearbox to take the power.
Hats off to you sir for creating such an amazing build. 😎
