In this feature length finale episode, the MCM boys get to work on making a slow car as fast as they can for as cheap as possible.
We don't do Patreon or crowd funding, but you can support the show by grabbing something from our online store - we ship worldwide and pack the products and send them from Sydney, Australia.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

  • Keeping with MCM tradition, our last episode of the year is out on Christmas Day. While Christmas is a day of celebration for a lot people, for many others it can be a difficult, lonely time particularly for those with broken families, severe financial stress, those dealing with the bush fire crisis or families dealing with the loss of a loved one. While we can’t fully understand what each person is going through, we want to acknowledge that for many people it won’t be the kind of Christmas we see on TV. Don’t worry about LVworld videos of people getting new super cars and houses or $1M for Christmas. This stuff is not reality and certainly not a basis to compare your own situation. The best gift you can give anyone is your attention - keep it simple and don’t give yourself a hard time if your Christmas Day doesn’t look like the ads on TV (nobodies Christmas Day actually looks like that) Huge respect to all of the emergency services personnel and volunteers that are battling bush fires around the country. And for those that need some extra help, please check out the ReachOut website where there is free support for those in need. All the best for the end of 2019 and we hope you enjoy the episode. - MCM

    • Hey guys usually brown bread doesn't have anything extra in it. What what makes brown bread versus white bread is they don't sift the grain as completely and then they don't bleach it. Generally speaking it is better for you because all that stuff they sift out of white bread has nutrients that will then be omitted from the white bread. That haven't been said please don't pay more for brown bread since it's so much cheaper and easier to make people who sell you brown bread at a premium are douchebags.

    • MCM, Marty & Moog, You two have the most real and understanding non judgemental people I have ever seen. Even though I have never met you guys, I can say you two make my days a little better just by watching your videos, and the ability to make my days better is a Christmas gift in itself. My family and myself are struggling with disability problems and family tragedy etc. To read this made me smile as LIFE is not about your possessions or money, its about love, happiness and being content. I hope you two read this. Long reply but just want to say you two do change my life a little bit for the better :) Also watching MCM whilst repairing My BF Barra - Good Times :)

  • Hey guys !! long time subscriber right since the stealing the girlfriends car to PIMP out for 500$ lolol LOVE the show!! keep doing what youre doing! really shows you can start from anywhere and with time and effort you can accomplish so much. Anyway fan stuff aside lol, my question to you is, do you guys know if the 1zz-fe 1.8 corolla engine will work instead of the 2zzr engine? I have a 2006 Scion xB AND a 2004 Toyota Corolla. The Scion is basically a yaris with a different body, with the 1.5L but the Corolla has thw 1zz-fe instead of the 2zzr. Im hoping it will still work. Any insight would be greatly appriciated!

  • I just sold my 2012 yaris L 1.5L, I put 264K miles on it since new. During that it was fluid & filter changes, tires, brakes, one rear hub/bearing, 2 batteries, 3 alternators & the other assorted basic mainteance. It was one of the most reliable cars I've ever owned. That said.... It was getting tired, it was starting to burn oil... after sitting for more than a couple days it would smoke on startup. It would have been a perfect candidate for this swap....

  • Hate to break it to you boys...but that was in fact a 1.5 1nz-fe motor not a 1.3 hahaha...the 1.3 has the exhuast manifolds on the front of the car where as this clearly doesnt. You could have just turboed the 1.5 its the same block as the turbio one and has low compression ratio unlike the 1.8 corolla motor that had no turbo option. The 1nzfe would have made that same 150hp all day. they can make 200hp and still be reliable..But there was for sure something wrong with that one it didnt seem to be hitting vvti when ytou guys raced it.
