    Benefits of a coolant reroute for the B series Mazda Miata engine

    • Lower and more stable coolant temps - factory ECU runs in standard temp map (not hot enriched) for more power
    • Fans will only turn on at idle, cycling on and off on the warm days - less alternator load means more power
    • Cooler CHT's raise detonation threshold so timing can be advanced - more power
    • Much faster warm up
    • On most mildly boosted engines a 55mm radiator is no longer needed, a lighter 37mm is plenty
    • Neater appearance at front of motor - front outlet can be removed entirely if you wish

    Why the Miata has a built in problem

     The Miata's engine was designed for a front wheel drive car then turned 90* lengthwise in the Miata. To make it fit, Mazda's engineers moved the coolant outlet from the rear of the head where it belongs, to the front of the head. As a result of this backwards flow, only a small portion of the total coolant water flow goes around the 4th cylinder at the rear of the head so it runs hotter that the front of the engine. In addition, not all of the heat the engine generates is being fed to the radiator so a much larger radiator must be used even for mildly tuned engines. Even a bone stock first gen Miata will kick on its cooling fans in steady state hot weather highway cruising with the A/C. As soon as you hit the track or add power the OEM routing becomes a major problem no matter how big the radiator or how much venting/ducting you have.

    The reroute returns the coolant flow path to the correct configuration used before the Miata came along. In addition, the kit retains full functioning of the original system including correct sensor locations for the stock ECU, heater, bypass circuit operation for proper warm-up and cold over-pressure protection.

    01-05 owners: Mazda changed the head gasket design for these years to restrict flow to the #1 cylinder to help alleviate the cooling issues. The 01-05 OEM gasket works fine with the reroute but will work even better with the BP26-10-271 gasket from the 94-00 engine. So if you are rebuilding your 01-05 VVT engine, consider the 94-00 head gasket.
