1200hp of Mazda fury

Posted in Cars, News

If you have been following ‘Mad Mike’ Whiddett’s Mazda NC MX-5 build over the last few months then you will no doubt be up with the play on the plan to run a twin-turbo 26B expected to produce over 1200hp.

In this episode Mike hangs out with Warren and the team at PPRE to go over the engine build and some of the wild features that they have packed into the engine bay. As Warren expresses in the video, his team are super excited about the magnitude of the project and are working around the clock to finish it.

Marcus Gibson has spent his life getting a little grease under his fingernails growing up with a fascination for all things loud, fast, and low. Growing up during the boom of the import scene, the last ten years have seen him work for a few publications, as well as running his own website before taking up a role at NZ Performance Car in 2011. Marcus is as at home with a keyboard or camera in-hand as he is getting dirty in his workshop or at the track, championing that Kiwi DIY attitude.
