Back when I ran the online performance accessory store SKREEM.COM.AU (Skreem Performance). I based a lot of the products around my own vehicle, my Mazda MX-5 NB (2001). As an NB8B it was the VVT variation of the standard BP 1.8L. So unlike the older shape (pre-facelift) models this one had higher compression making turbo a little-more dangerous but with a much better kick (and hey… 6 gears really help!). This car was what I used to transition from my P2 to my fulls hence the turbocharge application.

The MX55KK project was basically an SE with all the SP power.
