WE TEST: Was $17,500 worth of car mods worth it?

Published on 2 weeks ago

The miata is finally +turbo so it’s time to go back to the racetrack and see if Zach can run a decent lap at Willow Springs. Since last time we were at this track, the cooling system has been upgraded, the brakes have been upgraded, we’ve added an oil cooler, moved to a standalone ECU, and of course, added a turbo kit; to make an overall total of $17,500. Will all this money in mods be worth it or will we have big issues again?

Big thanks to @EADExotics for hosting another great track day!

I find it funny that people will admire a turbo Japanese car with 220hp but most people will say a 275hp Camaro 4 cyl turbo isn’t good enough

$17,000 worth of mods. LMAOOO. Plus the price of the car. You could’ve easily just bought a brand new Camaro or a Mustang 4 Cylinder Turbo for the same price.

OIl dripping on a track is so dangerous is can be the difference of life and death for a real race driver or even a noobie. If you see a big oil leaking coming from your engine DO NOT do what this guy did as its dangerous to not only your engine but also everyone else on that track

Forget the $17k spent. Surely the better tyres would have helped you get a better lap time?

Makes me so glad I went with a 5.0 swap t5 trans and Ford 8.8 rear end for probably 10k total (including roller shell) I don’t have the heart left in me to fix one thing after another after another like that lol

I think it ran 1.50 perfectly (maybe a pro racing driver would do a 1.44). You not only increased Hp, but also weight. At the amount of Hp it is doing, it's balancín all the added weight. Maybe another turbo, change of internal parts of Block, etc. So it makes about 300 to 380 hp and know weight is not gonna matter as much.

So you didn't answer the question. Was $17,500 of mods worth it? No. It made you go slower!

I love how everyones saftey that day took a back seat to shaving off a second or two. Remind me to never attend a track day when these clowns are there spewing oil all over the track.

I refuse to watch any more "time measuring" videos by a fucking stop watch. To all car channels out there, invest couple of hundred $$$ for a proper system. Much love.

Never, in the history of ever, has adding a turbocharger made an engine more reliable.

So let me get this right.. 17k, double the horses, and you ran 4 secs slower? No way a pcv valve fix with some catchers will fix that.. this just doesn't add up. I feel like with 17k you could just buy a car with a faster time. I love this channel and series. I really wished for a different result. Edit* As a financially struggling 20ish guy who has always wanted to get into car performance and driving on a track someday this is really discouraging. The reason I watch this channel is to learn as much as i can.. to someday do it myself. I guess this just isn't in my future unless I win the lottery.

3:40 looks like the PCV outlet from the rocker cover is blanked off? PCV needs connecting, and needs to be routed to the inlet side of the turbo where it’s negative pressure, not to the manifold itself as that’s now under positive pressure when turbo is boosting.

It's really stupid to run a car that's leaking oil on track... I don't really care if you blow your engine up or set your car on fire but you're putting other drivers at risk by spilling oil all over the track, which can really cause crashes! I've seen this happen often while racing the Nürburgring. Really irresponsible!!!
