Default MX5 NA6 from Australia

Made a few posts on here so I thought I would make a post with my car in it. Sorry but at the moment it is naturally aspirated, however you never know what the future holds...

Worst Mod - Roof air scoop. It is great for ducting air into the cabin but it is noisy when on the road. On the track with a helmet on you don't hear it.

Best Mod - Custom ITB airbox and getting the fuel level to display on the IQ3.

Next mod - custom wing mounts as the current setup has too much side to side movement. There will be bracing inside the boot as well as the new mounts.

Timk - OEM 6 speed

FrankB - thanks it took a while to get the air box right. For a RH drive car it fits under the OEM bonnet as well as retains the booster and clutch in their OEM positions. For LH drive cars you do not have those constraints.

What has been done to it for it to be "built for up to 400 Nm of torque", or is that how they come?

The gearbox was rebuilt just before I purchased it from Victoria. Gears were replaced by deburred, polished, Cyro treated then shotpeened ones.

The fuel guage setup is a sensor from Iron Canyon http://www.ironcanyonmotorsports.com/icm-fuel-sender/, this is then hooked into the Haltech PS1000 (and into the Innovate data logger) to be displayed by the IQ3.

Black line is speed (kmh) and the blue/green line is the fuel level (ltrs).

Home to coffee about 80 kms.
