7,000 Mile Roadtrip in a Civic and Miata - Episode 3

  • Published: 18 May 2019
  • 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!

            Very nice. How did the Civic perform after clearing the catalytic converter?
            I also want to do a massive road trip with my 1995 mk1 Fiat Punto to show everybody how Fiats are amazing cars with very good and reliable engines. But I am european so I will to a road trip through Europe.

                  That block in the exhaust caused back pressure and the header failed?

                      22:22 what is this sorcery, changing a Honda B-series oil filter from above???? I sure as hell can't do that on my GSR! Only way to get to it is from underneath, which has always sucked.

                        so much attention to detail making the Civic into an EK9 CTR clone, but it still has the USDM side mirrors. For shame.

                                Year, if there is a road trip next year, can you so it with less expensive and less reliable cars? 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.

                                    maybe the miata would win if you took off the supercharger, weight reduction and a power increase
