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

    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!

This is what happens when you have no suspension mods on stock Miata. Put on some decent coilovers, sway bar, bushings, etc. I mean cmon, a spec Miata with 140whp can do 1:35 easily here

If you're stuck on the Miata chassis, a Camaro LFX V6 would beat all your numbers for less money and better sounds. Many millions have gone into designing a better chassis than an MX5 for the LS. It's called a Corvette! For half the money you spent, you could have a factory set up called a Boxster! Or if you want 225HP with 225ft/lbs for a third of the money, pick up a Z3/Z4! For just a little more you could have 240HP in an S2000!

I'll be the 1 to not only say it, but "diss-myself" as well...... 220HP for 17.5K? that's about the same as the hated TBI 305 SBC you can get for next to nothing. BUT, comes with a whole nuther mess of issues & problems. Like the Vids guys, and I like what you've done to this lit'le thing to squeeze as much as you can out of it. Because "Dollar for Pony," these lit'le things take a lot to get a lit'le.

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.

" (maybe a pro racing driver would do a 1.44)" A 200~ whp miata on 100 tread wear tires (R888s i believe hes on currently), would more than likely be in the in the 1:3X range. But thats what we practice for!

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.
