Full Engine Rebuild Services

We offer engine refurbishment and swap services for all MX5 engines.


We have an excellent reputation and are well renowned for our engine refurbishments.  We've rebuilt engines for customers in Europe as well as throughout the UK. We've even been known to "assist" with main dealers!


Over the years we have realised through our customers that in the MX5 fraternity, the cars originality is of the upmost importance. Offering an existing engine rebuild service is one of the keys to our success, and a service that is no longer offered by main dealers. 


Not all engines require a full rebuild, so there are other less costly options available to meet a variety of circumstances. 


We have extensive access to privileged literature, microfiches, part numbers and the all-important Mazda Europe online Portal.


Full engine rebuild process:

All engines are completely stripped to component form, thorughly cleaned, fully inspected and measured to check they are all within Mazda specified tolerances. All machining is carried out, and then the engine is reassembled using new servicable components. All our standard engines full engine rebuilds come with a 2 year, 18k mile warraty. (Terms & conditions do apply).


There are various options available, so please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements.

  • Full MX5 engine rebuild 
  • Partial engine rebuild  
  • MX5 engine swap (using a donor engine) i.e. a remove and fit service
