Description

Details

The stock Mazdaspeed comes from the factory with a restrictive intake, a leaky bypass valve and a throttle body inlet pipe that inflates and blows off under boost. Flyin' Miata has developed solutions for all of these problems and this package includes them all. Safe for use with a stock ECU, this combination will improve spoolup, increase power and is a good foundation for further modifications. When combined with our exhaust system, customers have seen 200 hp at the rear wheels - a 50 hp gain. All pipes are made of polished stainless steel while the blow-off valve is black anodized aluminum. Easy installation.

We strongly recommend installing both the throttle body inlet upgrade and intake upgrade together, as they are designed to work with each other. Installing just one may require some creativity in some of the vacuum lines.

Available for cars with stock ECU or cars that have replaced the MAF with a MAP-based system such as a Hydra, FM221 or Megasquirt. The stock ECU version can easily be converted if an ECU is added later. 

Sorry, this kit won't work with RHD cars as there are complications with the location of the ABS module and A/C lines.

Update to previous review
I said in a previous review that it caused problems with the MAF. It doesn't. I was misreading an error code for the MAP sensor which was caused by my own error. I even reinstalled the oiled filter, no problem (probably should let it air out overnight after you remove the plastic, though, because I do think that initial sluggishness was the MAF sensor).

Loses one star for oiled filter so close to MAF
This is a fantastic option for anyone looking for a little extra oomph, because it gives a lot of extra oomph for the cost. I just wish Flyin’ Miata didn’t use an oiled air filter, because it constantly interferes with the MAF sensor, the two being so close together.

The kit was fairly easy to install, but there were a lot of steps. I bought this as part of a Little Enchilada minus the intercooler, which I bought from Fab9. The hardest part was cutting the intercooler piping and figuring out exactly where the boost gauge and O2 signal modifier piped in and who went first (if you’re experienced with turbos, it should be obvious, but I wasn’t), but everything related to this kit, specifically, was extremely straight-forward.

I can’t comment on performance gains from the intake kit, alone, since I stalled the downpipe and exhaust system at the same time, but altogether it really does feel like the 40% gain that’s advertised.

And the noises are very entertaining. They’re much more prominent than the exhaust note and distract from it, but they don’t drown it out and the Flyin Miata MSM exhaust is quieter under load than it is at idle—when the turbo isn’t making any noise anyway. I never get tired of it, but my Miata isn’t my daily and I can see it being annoying for someone that doesn’t want the whooshes and whines and the ptu-ptu-ptu-ptus all the time.

The only real downside is the fact that FM chose to include an oiled filter. I just can’t understand why. Oiled filters are notorious for clogging up MAF sensors and are really outdated; they worked great when cars used carburetors, because the oil didn’t interfere with anything, but they will almost always cause problems with cars that have an ECU because they inevitably will coat the MAF or MAP sensors in oil, inhibiting their ability to function properly.

Almost immediately my MAF sensor went on the fritz and I thought I had a vacuum leak it was so bad. Running the codes, I got a P0106, which is a MAF sensor malfunction. Cleared the code and it immediately came back at idle. Cleaned the sensor with MAF cleaner and an air blower and the code was gone, until I gave the car some hard acceleration. Then it’s back, but not screwing with performance as much. Since then I have cleaned the sensor five times, and my check engine light is still on because the P0106 code keeps getting triggered. I’ve had to dock this intake one star because of the headache the oiled filter has cause and the fact I’ve had to spend $60 on a replacement filter that isn’t oiled.

Note from FM: P0106 is an EGR boost sensor code on the MSM, and is a well-known problem for that car that's unrelated to the choice of intake. We've reached out to KFMush to help troubleshoot his car and fix the problem once and for all. We've been using oiled filters on MSMs for nearly 15 years and on Miatas for 25, and they have shown themselves to be trouble-free over that time. Other vehicles such as Subarus are far more sensitive to them.

Amazing should have done it sooner!!
WOW!!! I cannot believe how much better the car is with this intake! Power comes on much sooner and the car is much more drive-able, fun, and quick! I like being able to hear turbo noises as well! Looks amazing and was easy to install. Wish I would have done it sooner! A++ Thanks FM!
