SINCE 2017

Exocet Owner Spencer Taylor

The Exocet has been my passion since first seeing one at my home racetrack of NJMP in 2016. The Ariel Atom meets Industrial Rock look captivated me instantly.

What the Exocet brilliantly accomplishes is combining the race-proven Miata NA and NB chassis dynamics with a bespoke tube frame.

Building off of the Miata platform also means an Exocet accepts almost every upgrade or modification designed for an MX-5. Turbo 1.6L and 1.8L Mazda, GM LS series, Honda K24, and GM EcoTec engine swaps are but a few of your choices to choose!

My Exocet race car journey began in early 2017. I experience the most enjoyable, raw, thrilling, and propulsive driving in my Exocet. It rewards its driver and pushes them always to go faster!

If the Bee Gees made a turbo, they’d call it the Disco Potato.

I have no idea who came up with the name Disco Potato, but I love it! The turbo does boogie down. What makes the Garrett GT28R so special? It spools quickly, and can deliver enormous boost to four cylinder engines.

While final tuning is not yet complete, so far my newly refreshed built 1.8L engine combined with the Disco Potato is making north of 300 HP at the wheels! That’s amazing for relatively small displacement, and my lowered 8.5:1 compression ratio.

  • Built tough as nails by Garrett
  • Ability to deliver 25 PSI boost consistently
  • Reasonably priced for a quality, powerful, turbo

My Exocet Website Journey Has Just Begun

As a Freelance WordPress web design consultant, I’m working on websites every day – all day. My goal is to build a dedicated website for my Exocet, including its build process, and my experiences with the platform.

My other goal is to meet more Exocet owners! If you are one or are interested in learning more about Exocets, drop me a line below.
