This is what a 1,200-hp twin-turbo 4-rotor looks like in a Miata

The engine bay of drifter

We’ve seen the diminutive Mazda MX-5 Miata swallow plenty of big engines, but New Zealand drifting ace “Mad Mike” Whiddett is roaring into where-no-man-has-gone-before territory. Wanting to replace his 515-horsepower “MADBUL” RX-7 and its twin-turbocharged, three-rotor 20B engine, his new ride is an NC-series Miata with four rotors and twin Garrett turbochargers courtesy of Pulse Performance Race Engineering. It is called “RADBUL,” and expected power at standard boost is 1,200 hp, but the builders at Pulse Performance think it will get up to 1,500 hp at full boost. And yes, that exhaust exits through the hood.

Four-rotor engines are actually popular – builds are detailed on forums like this one from 2007 and this one from 2008, this UK company or this Canadian company will sell you one complete – but they’re usually being prepped for an RX-7. Mad Mike’s choice of a Miata for this enterprise makes this about as extreme as you can get, short of throwing it into a Mazda R360. You can watch Mad Mike tell the story of the build in the video, and check out the first and second installments about the build on the Red Bull site.
