BBR has announced the specially tuned Mazda 3 Phase 2. It is based on the powerfull Mazda 3 MPS with 2.3 DSI engine.

A lot of modifications has been made for boosting Mazda 3 MPS to 320PS. Firstly, the MPS's standard, airflow restrictive turbo inlet hoses are replaced with high flow, cast aluminium/silicon versions specifically designed to withstand higher boost levels without deformation. To optimise inlet flow and provide superior filtration BBR replaces the stock paper airbox element with a high flow performance filter.

The exhaust has been modified, too. Mazda MPS turbo downpipe, pre-catalyst and main catalytic converter are replaced with a BBR 3 inch stainless steel downpipe including a sports catalyst.

In conjunction with the BBR Phase 2's mechanical modifications a custom mapped BBR Star Chip is installed to extract the maximum safe power from the original Mazda MPS turbo charger.

The end results are 320PS (235 kW) at 6200RPM and 500Nm (370 lb-ft) at 3800RPM.

Priced at £1645, with a fitting charge of £395, customers should allow six to eight hours for installation. A 3 inch diameter cat back stainless steel exhaust system is available for a further £495.

BBR also offers Mazda 3 MPS Performance Spring set for £165. You can also order a full Specification Koni adjustable dampers for £795.

BBR's Phase Two Conversion includes:

A BBR spec High flow fuel pump – the standard Mazda 2.3 DSI high pressure fuel pump is removed, disassembled and cleaned, the standard unit is reassembled with the addition of BBR's high flow internals and unit reinstalled – retaining the standard visual appearance but with much higher performance.

A BBR High Flow inlet hose set – a complete set of high flow replacement hoses are included, removing Mazda's inherent flow restrictions and allowing greater flow to the turbocharger.

A BBR high flow exhaust downpipe with sports cat – a complete downpipe section including sports catalyst, produced from highest quality aircraft grade stainless steel ensuring a perfect fit and consistent high flow.

A high flow filter – BBR specifies a ‘drop in' performance air filter, which improves inlet airflow, increases throttle response and comes with a million mile warranty.
