Dear community,

I am Guido from SPS Motorsport and I would like to introduce you to our program.

We are the largest MX-5 tuner in Germany. We do not only convert vehicles for the road but also do a lot of racing.
Racing cars with partly over 500hp have already left our workshop and reached podium places in various races.

Here you can get some impressions:

The next days I will show some cool customer projects. I hope You'll like it. ;)

Here you can see a bit of everyday workshop life. This ND got a BBR GTi turbo kit. The car now makes 240hp. It also got 949 racing rims with semi-slicks, a big-brake-upgrade, an Öhlins suspension and an anti-rollbar from H&R. The car drives really well.

One customer brought us his car to get a suspension adjustment with his new rims, tires and our coilover.
We like this setup. The car has a sporty look.

Setup: Enkei RPF1 8x16 with 38mm offset on Yokohama Advan AD08R 225/45 R16 and our SPS coilover for the ND

And finally our webshop is available in english.

Last weekend we had another TimeAtttack run, this time at the "Reisbrennen".

We had some issues with the white NA and the green NB:
The white NA got another Turbo, a Borg Warner EFR 7670. At 1.5bar the fuel pressure got to low so we have to upgrade the fuelpump.
The green NB got problems with the ignition. We have to change the sparkplugs to a higher heat value.

But the rest of our cars performed pretty well and we saw many other MX-5 on the track. We are happy to MX-5s on the racetrack.

Some impressions:

This year the world is celebrating 30 years of Mazda MX-5. So Mazda Germany had the idea to pay tribute by braking a record.
The idea was to drive as many corners as possible in 12 hours. The perfect job for a MX-5 NA.

So Mazda Germany came to us to get a red NA 1.6L prepared for the record. The limit was the power of the engine had to be stock.

So we installed these parts:
- engine oil cooling kit
- 6 speed transmission with gearbox oil cooling kit
- miataroadster short shifter
- Torsen-LSD with differential oil cooling kit
- SPS roll bar
- Sparco steering wheel
- Sparco Sprint seats
- Schroth racing 4-point harness
- StopTech 4-piston 286mm Big Brake Kit
- BC Racing ER-series suspension
- ATS DTC 15" rims
- Mishimoto radiator
- Competition Clutch Flywheel and Stage 3 Clutch
- custom exhaust
- custom rallye headlights

Then they set the record in the austrian alps. Mazda Germany also produced a YouTube series about that record. We are very proud to be part of that whole operation.

This is the car of a good friend of our company. The look of the car is really cool, but the engine is a tough one.

A BP block, reamed to 2 liters with an individual throttle body, race header, adjustable camshaft gears, race camshafts, revving to 8600rpm producing 230hp.
The sound the engine produces, is incredible! It screams like a race car! I think the owner, Jean Claudio Flensberg, has a good taste. ;)

Parts:
- 2.0L reamed BP block
- ARP head stud kit
- JE pistons 85.5mm
- K1 conrods
- ACL bearings
- adjustable camshaft gears
- race camshafts
- Supertech valves with Supertech valve spring kit
- Jenvey ITB
- engine oil cooling kit
- Racingbeat exhaust header
- Mishimoto radiator
- BC-Racing coilover
- Nardi deep corn steering wheel
- Recaro Profi SPG seats
- Takata harness
- SPS Extreme rollover bar
- Rota Kyuasha 8x15 0mm offset
- Nankang NS-2R 195/50R15

This is one of the toughest conversions we ever made. A 2.5L V6 KL swap with an ITB. We had many issues with the car until it was ready to go on the street. But at the end we solved every problem and now the car runs fine. The block is bored from 2.5L to 2.6L equipped with Wiseco pistons and K1 conrods, main and conrod bearings are Toga high performance bearings. The head got solid cam followers with different camshaft and an individual throttle body. The engine produces 250hp with an airbox on the ITB and 300hp without the airbox.

Specs:
- 2.6L KL
- Wiseco pistons
- K1 conrods
- Toga high performance main and conrod bearings
- Catcams camshafts
- solid cam followers
- custom ITB
- custom airbox
- mishimoto radiator
- BC Racing BR-series coilover
- DIY microsquirt ECU
- Rota RKR 8x15" 10mm offset rims

This 10th-anniversary NB got in our workshop because on our last trackday in Anneau Du Rhin the timing belt got destroyed by some dirt of the track.

We supposed the valves also got broken because of other camshafts and higher compression, but luckily nothing else got broken.

It is a 1.8L bored to 2.0L with an ITB and very aggressive camshafts. On the dyno it produces 230 natural aspirated horsepower at 7800rpm.
Because of that power and a shorter final drive in combination with a 6-speed gearbox and a shortshifter it is really much fun to drive. :D

Specs:
- 1.8L BP bored to 2.0L with 85.5mm pistons
- Jenvey ITB
- Mishimoto X-Line radiator for Honda Civic
- Reverie RH carbon airbox with custom ram-air hose
- König K 5000 seats
- OZ Ultraleggera 15 inch

This is a really nice sleeper setup. A 1.8L NA with a GT3071R turbocharger producing more than 350hp.
The owner doesn't want a rollover bar because he wants to keep the sleeper look.

Specs:
- 1.8L BP bored for 84.5mm Wiseco pistons
- K1 conrods
- ACL main- and rod bearings
- Boundary stage 2 oilpump
- ARP head stud kit
- Garret GT3071R turbocharger
- ATI Superdamper
- SPS oil cooling kit
- Mishimoto radiator
- Skid Nation reroute kit
- 6-speed gearbox
- MiataRoadster short shifter
- StopTech BBK 280mm
- Rota Strike 8x15 20mm offset with Nankang AR-1
- CanChecked Display universal 2.8"

Also the car got a nice look with it shiny rims and low coilover setup.

3 weeks ago we took part at the German TimeAttack Finals and the European TimeAttack at the Nürburgring. Our race cars performed well, but our red ND just got a little accident. Nevertheless we celebrated many victories in different classes. It was a great season ending!

Here You can see a really serious project.

This NC is getting a Borg Warner EFR7163 turbocharger on a forged engine running with 1.3 bar boost tuned with a MS3. It will produce around 400hp at the flywheel with 455Nm/336lbft torque.
It also gets a full roll cage, fender flares, gearbox oil cooling system and differential oil cooling system.

Hello guys,

the first post in 2020, this time something special.

We also restore complete cars. The customer made the decision to restore his car completely from zero to the top.
It gets a new painting, new seals, new gaskets, new rubbers, a new windshield, a rollbar, Lotus Elise seats, a turboconversion (Borg Warner EFR 6758), a SPS coilover setup, and some nice wheels and tires.

We are filming the whole process and creating a time lapse video.

Some days ago we had a really nice looking ND here. We mounted Rota Kyusha 9x17" with 20mm offset on Hankook Ventus V12 215/40 ZR17. The suspension is our SPS "Super Low" coilover setup. The last step was mounting an ATH exhaust.
