We have here a newly designed Cold Air Induction Kit System for the Mk2 & 2.5. To produce the cold air box, huge amounts of effort was put in to making this kit not only look good, but remain as fuctional as possible. To block any vibration from the engine, a flexible silicone hose was designed, and the intake box itself is mounted on soft rubber fittings. The airflow meter sits perfectly in the air outlet of the new box, and the supplied stainless steel clamps give the kit the perfect finish ensuring there are no air leaks. The kit is fully TUEV compliant for use across Europe except for counties who do not accept a German TUEV or "Teilegutachten".
It is now even more effective, lighter and cheaper! There has been a great deal of time and money invested to develop new moulds to work with the very best materials to increase the airflow and the physical strength of the filter, whilst at the same time, reducing both the weight and the retail cost.
The intake system takes the original size panel filter, so you can use your existing paper filter or replace it with any performance panel that is designed for the MX5 Mk2 or 2.5. The design of the intake is such that it gets only fresh cold air from in front of the radiator.
This kit has been dyno tested on the European 1.6ltr engine and this showed a 7hp increase when using our intake. We hope to have a dyno test for the 1.8ltr available soon.
The carefully designed intake works by only picking up cool air, reducing the distance that the intake air has to travel, and removing as many restrictions as possible. This means that the air reacts much stronger and faster than in a standard system or any other intake that we know of on the MX5 market.

Fits all Mk2/2.5 models, 1998>2005
Please Note: To fit this kit you will need to remove the bonnet prop. We would suggest fitting a set of these bonnet lifters in it's place.
