We had 34,000 original miles on our 1600cc Mk2 Mazda MX5 that needed a service. We put it on our MAHA rolling road before hand in order to set a bench mark. We got a result of 114.8bhp. We then carried out a basic service which included air filter, fuel filter oil filter, engine oil and spark plugs. After the service we went back in the rolling road for another power run. We found the engine gave a little more power at around 2400rpm. We tried changing the plug gaps and found .044″ to be the optimum with a 1bhp increase in maximum power to 115.8bhp. On the road the car felt better with a smoother delivery of power.
When Mazda brought out their modern take on the original Lotus Elan it was an instant success. Since production started back in 1989 the cars superb handling and accessibility have enshrined it in automotive history as a true modern classic. A truly great drivers car, inexpensive to maintain, reliable and rear wheel drive. What’s not to like. Lately we’ve been seeing more and more of these coming through the door so we’re now offering a bespoke service deal specifically for the MX5 as well as the usual services which include any mechanical repairs, tuning, rolling road and body work.
