Mike Whiddett’s Twin-turbo 26B Powered MX-5

Mad Mike is getting ready to add another wild Mazda to his stable. Called Project RADBUL, it’s a third-generation (NC) Mazda MX-5 with a twin-turbo four-rotor 26B engine. The beast of a rotary engine was built by Pulse Performance Race Engineering. With the help of two custom Garrett GTX40s, 100 octane race fuel and Mobil two-stroke oil, the engine produces 1,032 horsepower on the lowest boost setting. I think to put this car in perspective you just need to read Mike’s own words “the fastest thing with four wheels that I have ever driven.”

    I wonder why the 100 octane? I recall MAzda wishing they could get lower octanes racing fual when they we running them in IMSA GTU form, The lower octane allowed for more fuel to burn inside the engine instead of in the muffler.
