IL MO­TOR­SPORT REAR LOWER CHAS­SIS BRACE, MK1/2/2.5

A stiffer chas­sis means sharper han­dling – this rear lower chas­sis brace uses ex­ist­ing mount­ing holes and you don’t need to dis­turb any of the sus­pen­sion set­tings to fit it. Front avail­able, too.

TR LANE V-SHAPED ROLL BAR, MK1/2/2.5

Hand­made in the UK, this wellfin­ished roll-bar is pop­u­lar with the track­day, hill­climb and sprint­ing fra­ter­ni­ties. It not only brings safety ben­e­fits, it helps stiffen the bodyshell, too.

IL MO­TOR­SPORT 4-PIECE CLUTCH, MK1/2/2.5

En­thu­si­ast and reg­u­lar driv­ers can ben­e­fit from this clutch kit – it was de­vel­oped and tested on the track and then adapted for ev­ery­day road use, with pedal feel just like that of the orig­i­nal.

IL MO­TOR­SPORT COOLANT HOSE KIT, MK1 1.6

The oldest MX-5S are ap­proach­ing 30 years old, so some of their cool­ing hoses could be a lit­tle tired… This nine-piece kit means you can re­place all your cool­ing hoses for your peace of mind.

V-MAXX COILOVER KIT, MK1

This Dutch com­pany’s heigh­tad­justable coilover kit gives a body drop of 35–65mm and fea­tures up­rated sports springs. Al­though pre-set from the fac­tory for fast road driv­ing, there’s scope for you to then play with set­tings your­self.

K&N TY­PHOON IN­TAKE KIT, MK2/2.5

This in­duc­tion kit looks the busi­ness, sounds the busi­ness, and re­ally does the busi­ness com­pared with the stran­gled stan­dard in­take. It’s avail­able with ei­ther a red or pol­ished alu­minium pipe.

MX5­PARTS STAIN­LESS STEEL CAT BY-PASS PIPE, MK 1

Made from 100% 304-grade stain­less steel, this cat by-pass pipe is sup­plied with all the nec­es­sary fix­ing bolts and gas­kets. Check the web­site for size in­for­ma­tion and vi­tal MOT ad­vice.

SKUZZLE MO­TOR­SPORT IN­TAKE KIT, MK3/3.5

The de­sign of this in­duc­tion kit was ap­proached with sci­en­tific zeal to­wards max­imis­ing the rate and type of air­flow along it – as a con­se­quence, it of­fers dyno-proven per­for­mance gains.

IL MO­TOR­SPORT RA­DI­A­TOR FAN AND COOL­ING KIT, MK 1/2/2.5

When you’re driv­ing hard, cool­ing is para­mount. This ra­di­a­tor fan has dou­ble the power of the stan­dard item and fea­tures an in­te­grated oil cooler. Comes com­plete with ev­ery­thing you need to fit it.

EIBACH SPORTS SPRINGS, MK1

No­table for both their per­for­mance and high qual­ity man­u­fac­ture, these Eibach springs lower your mk1 by ap­prox­i­mately 30mm and keep a tight but mea­sured check on body move­ment. All other MX-5 mod­els are catered for, too.
