  • Whatever you might think, this is something real, fun, and achievable, your average person could afford, achieve, & enjoy. I particularly liked the engine upgrade and the turbo needed to be attempted. It would make a great little buzzbox if you are not at all vain or don't need a fancier ride.

  • I guess you wouldn't do a speeduino ecu standalone. Your sponsor wouldn't like that. Speedy efi plug and play for a Miata na is $390 US. Come on guys speeduino is the next step for standalone engine management for any car (for the average guy) . It's open source.

  • Yes, You have to spend 13,000 at the one time on brz or bmw 335i ,but the biggest difference is that these cars are still worth 13,000 and you can sell them for a similar amount, but after put in that amount in this Toyota you just lost that money.

  • I understand upgrading the turbo but why to add a turbo to regular non-turbo Yaris when you can start with a one with factory turbo? That should bring the costs down a lot because you already have most of the supporting equipment with the car. And if you do it just for fun, why count the cost at all?

  • Hi Chaps, I think you went down the wrong track with this car mod. Enjoyed the build tho. Should have gotten a 2000 Yaris/Vitz. The 2NZ is good engine. Big injectors a good cam, open ports in the head, then a good exhaust system. Put good quality set of shocks in and you’ll have an awesome 1300cc that loves corner, light and most importantly you’ll have smile on your face for ages. Would have cost way less than the Yaris Hilton. Reason for this build, have you ever seen the mini take on the mustang round circuits back in the day. Would love to see you do this with this car or something similar

  • In other words: Before you buy turbo... make sure your motor block can handle many boost. Because if your car is modified and ready to drive, and blow engine already after some days... its waste of money and time. Start first with good engine block (choose good car) then you can modify it with turbo. I think all extra stuff is not because 169 turbo. Even with 400 turbo, or 600 turbo, you need change everything anyway. So in general way, you need at least 13 grand to add turbo to your car and make it look nicer outside. And make it street legal.

    • The 2ZR can handle the boost. Check out Lotus Elise Cup260@250BHP. Exact same engine, supercharged. Something went wrong in this build or tracking it. Mine works the very best and gets fairly regular abuse.
