Big News: BMW transmission upgrade

It’s time to share some long-awaited news about the transmission project we’ve been working on. Due to the huge power potential of a boosted K series engine, a stronger transmission option has been a really common request over the last year. The wait is almost over. We have just finished a bolt-in transmission upgrade for a BMW E30, E36, or E46 transmission (1982-2006 BMW 3 series) in an NA and NB Miata. The project originally began for the K series swap community, but we know our turbo BP engine friends have transmission struggles. Because of that, we have designed a transmission setup...

Last fall, David met with GRM to do a quick photoshoot of the original swap car, and to share a bit of KMiata history with readers. Big thanks to Joe for taking the time to visit, and for the article.  From the GRM article: "There is no perfect car. Regardless of how good a machine is when it is released, there will always be enthusiasts looking to modify and improve. This even holds true for one of our all-time favorites, the Mazda MX-5 Miata. Most of us can agree that Mazda’s little sports car is about as close to perfect as...

High horsepower drivetrain development

We took a road trip and picked up this ‘01 NB back in November after spending a while hunting for a white NB2 with black interior. As you can see, we've already made some essential changes. This car’s primary goal is to be a street car, but it will see some track time here and there. The fun part is that this car is going to get a K series swap with BOOST.  In order to do that, we'll be developing a new transmission option that can handle all the horsepower and torque you can throw at it.  The engine...

Miatas at MRLS recap video!

We had a blast last month at Miatas at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca! There were a total of four K swapped Miata present, all taking people for rides the whole weekend. Our friends at Moss Miata put together a great video from the weekend. Watch closely and you'll see some K series goodness on display, as well as our K24 test car blasting to the top of the corkscrew with one of the many passengers in the car. We already can't wait for 2017!

K24A2 dyno testing day!

Last week we did a full day of independent dyno testing that I want to share. Mikey from MSpec Tuning in Schaumburg, IL was gracious enough to give us 12+ hours on the dyno to do back-to-back testing. The goal was to show off what can be done with a stock K24A2 engine (2004-2008 TSX) in the Miata chassis, as well as test out a couple new parts. All tunes are done with the common 50 degree VTC intake cam gear swap instead of the 25 degree stock TSX unit. Each combo was fully tuned, we weren't just bolting on...
