Also my massive thread of complaints and progress with my NB Rotrex build in the Supercharger Section will answer your question.

From what I understand, Kraftwerks is now, or always was a, division of Skunk2 Racing. There was some sort of internal hubbub inside the Kraftwerks management structure and things kind of went to hell for a while. The folks at Skunk2 have dedicated time an effort to getting things sorted out and are pretty good with the communication and service now. The rotrex kits for the Miata are still being offered through Kraftwerks, as managed by Skunk2. I've got emails from the guys at Skunk2 saying they are in the process of a design change for the Miata application.

Emilio is right... this is worth near 5k and is good for 280+HP in the right hands. I've got one installed on my car, I'm just not far enough along in my project to make this happen yet.

Don't let my thread of bitching drive you away from one of these kits if you are interested. The issues have been sorted out and service parts are currently available. This does represent a significant value in the forced induction department.

...of course I may be biased, seeing as I have one

Sorry for going MIA for a while. I NEEDED to get out of town for a while. PMs sent.
As far as NB compatibility, I'm not 100%, but I'd been under the impression that the 1.8 mounting hardware was all the same.

What would the price be without the MSPNP and LC-1? I might be able to scrape the cash together soon.

Default Skunk2 should be able to...

answer the compatilbility question. I asked similar question regarding using a 2001 Kraftwerks kit on 99-00.

why not research it for yourself and not be a dick about it?

he's offering a fantastic deal on a kit otherwise sold for twice the money, it shouldn't be his job to know if your year (which he DIDN'T advertise) will fit.

I hate idiots like you

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but with regards to mounting, ALL the accessories can be physically swapped between 1.8 Miatas IIRC. I'm talking about crank harmonic dampers (yes, I'm aware of the mounting boss change), AC compressors, power steering pumps, etc etc, etc. The mounting plate mounts to those bosses, so there is NO reason it SHOULDN'T fit.

The only thing I could see that WOULD NOT swap over is the DFC/PowerCard injector controller chingadera, but trust me, you want a stand alone with this.

Email Brian at Kraftwerks if you are worried about it and ask him. [email protected]. If it doesn't fit, ask him what the aluminum mounting plate would cost for an NB. Its probably available as an individual part for like $200-$250. Everything else should be kosher other than the intercooler plumbing, but that's all custom anyway.

Like 18 said, do some research. Its like you just asked us if a 90-93 Greddy kit will fit your MazdaSpeed. FML

You have my sincerest apology for encroaching your webspace with my silly question. Allow me to answer your question(s)-

I'm really new to the Miata world and I'm not certain where to begin. I literally just (this evening) started researching FI options for the car and ran into this thread. I wasn't aware that asking questions I don't know the answers to, or know where to find the answer makes me a d**k. Thanks to you I just realized how much of a d**k I am, and have always been.

It would be a 'fantastic deal' for someone whose vehicle it fit. For me? I'm not even certain where to start looking. I tried typing things like :

"NA Rotrex on an NB"
"Will Scooters Rotrex fit my car?"
"What type of questions does 18psi approve of?"

..into Google, but fell short on satisfactory answers to any of my question. I bet even Google thought I was a d**k for asking questions I don't have the answers to.

Not only do you know where to look to find the answers to the most complicated questions, you're a psychic as well... based on a(literall) few keystrokes in a text environment you're able to determine that I am a d**k, for asking a question I don't know the answer to and that you hate me for it. You're skills are truly something to behold. Tell me, my soothsaying friend, which finger am I holding up?

No.

I bet your parents are proud.

I just got off the phone with Brian at Kraftwerks. According to him the mounting bracket is indeed the same for the NA8 and NB.

Thanks for checking for me, Scooter, I really appreciate it.

I am unable to PM at this point. Would you mind sending me a PM so I can provide you with contact information?

Otherwise,
[email protected]
