Light Weight Subframe – BP engine



Tubular subframe for stock Miata engines provides roughly 8 pounds, 25%, saving over the factory NB subframe. Built from DOM tubing. All mounting and suspension points are laser cut for precision fitment and alignment. Our tubular subframe improves rigidity along with updated suspension points with improved steering feedback. Increased engine bay room allows forced induction cars more options for routing. Ease of service with additional working room. Available with NA or NB steering rack mounts. Works with all OEM type motor mounts. Powder coated in silver vain gray.

Please Note: Subframe pictured with, but doesn't include V8R MX-5 BP Motor Mounts.

Subframes are built to order. Lead times vary and it is best to contact us for the current lead time.

As always, V8R goes above and beyond with quality. As everyone says the installation isn't a walk in the park, but well worth it from the amount of space and rigidity it adds to the car. Would 100% purchase again!

A Gem of a find

Yes, it's obviously a hassle to install, but everyone who's seen the subframe compliments it, my car passes state inspection, and it is excellent I enjoy the extra space it is a well-engineered piece it helped me to run my car after my subframe had been smashed and made it better, it has people asking me where did you get that!

Worth the money

Install was easy since my motor was already out but the space saving makes working on my car so much easier. I would recommend it to anyone who's always working on it from track days

Very well designed and high quality built product. Gives you much more room to work on the car and just looks great.

Replaced my stock front subframe on my 90 Miata that has a FMII turbo. I wish I had done it at the start. The extra access makes a lot of previously difficult jobs easier. The frame arrived in excellent shape earlier than they promised. All the mounting points and engine mounts lined up with no problem. Any future Miata’s I modify will have this as step one.
