  • Last year we drove our Evo 9 MR and STI swapped Subaru Forester from Florida to Alaska. Now, we're going to take another road trip! We've bought a supercharged Miata and Type R swapped Honda Civic to drive from the Florida Keys to Nova Scotia. It's a round trip journey of over 7,000 miles.

    We drove our turbo cars from Florida to Alaska. We took our STI drivetrain swapped Subaru Forester and Mitsubishi Evo 9 MR on a journey of over 10,000 miles. This isn't click bait, we actually did it! Or rather, you'll have to watch to find out if we actually made it all the way!

              Lol I've got a supercharged 88 MR2 and yeah... The "supercharger" helps with torque and hills but tbh only ads like 20 or so HP over the NA 4AGZE at 145 vs around 110-24 ish for the stock 4AGE

                  when they fixed your exhaust problem did you notice a decent power increase?

                      thats the learning curve with a FWD car i guess, you either brake or gas, never lift, or you start sliding

                            Unfortunately for the drag part it’s a NA Miata. They’re beautiful and fun and many people’s favorite unfortunately they aren’t that fast.

                              Can you imagine Dave doing a 1:34.6 and a time-attack pro doing a 1:34.8? Either dude's crazy fast, or the pro didn't have the right amount of laps to get used to the car.

                                  I do love the road trip videos. It's something that I've always wanted to do - take a care that I enjoy and just cross country it. I did, however, take my NB Miata from Northwest Florida to Phoenix, Arizona. Travelling in a small car with a luggage is not everyone. But it was an experience, nontheless.

                                    Just an FYI DO NOT drive your car with a cracked header like that. Not only does it reduce back pressure (in an actually relevant manner) it offsets the resisitance of the exhaust stoke with the other cylinders which puts a LOT of stress on the connecting rod bearings. Run it too long like that, poof motor

Put your automotive skills to use. Plus you have a support vehicle and sponsered by an auto parts store. No death trap cars but stuff like a 240 wagon, Saab 900 OG, Merc 190e or BMW E21/30.
