Turbo is officially on the Miata! Now it’s time we make sure that all the air being sucked in by our turbo gets cooled down as much as possible. For this our CX Racing turbo kit comes with a brand new intercooler, so we have to talk how exactly an intercooler system works, what you need to know when picking one, and by the end we’ll have nice cool air getting pumped into our engine.
We have a new channel!
Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

  • Great choice to have that little chunk at the end with music and footage getting it together. These are great videos but must be exhausting to make breaking everything down step by step. More noticeable in these turbo videos and getting to watch it with less explanation was a relief towards the end. Makes me wanna take an auto class to grasp everything

  • "ThEy DeLeTeD the AC!!" Well when you have a car to turbo and $$$ you can not delete the AC. Donut is a BUSINESS, they have to make a decision on whether spending money on ANOTHER kit or more piping will be worth showing for PROFIT. Provide solutions, dont just complain... these videos are free, unlike all this car work.

  • I think they should do a show that shows how most major modifications take way more time and effort than most car shows make them seem like. Like for example as some one who lives in Minnesota they should demonstrate dealing with massive amounts of rust or seized bolts. Your one broken bolt away from turning a 2 hour job into a 10 hour + job.

  • personally would have taken a piece of hose and slit it down the middle to use as a grommet on that hole that you had to cut. Since the tubing is connected to the engine and the engine will flex at least some, the hose going through there will rub-a-dub

  • STS is kind of cool because you need an intercooler. And it’s a sleeper. Lag is a bit much, but a high displacement motor with a good exhaust, there you go. The air will cool on its way back to the intake.

  • That silicone connector you put in the hole you drilled, should be protected from sharp edges, put some door trim or anything that fits in the metal to avoid a cut on the pipe, vibration and contact with metal will end up cutting it

Question,,,,,,,,,, where the sillycone hose goes through the hole you cut in the fender wall ,,, possibly ya may want to put a rubber barrier around the hole circumference to save chaffing the hose,,, just a thought ,, really interesting info you put out .

  • As a noob to these kinds of mechanics my head went to a liquid cooling inter cooler so im glad it was mentioned as I'd imagine this is the set up youd really want to go for, even if it means relocating something like your battery and airfilter intake system all together, may be fiddly but if you're planning on owning and flexing your car for a while, id skip straight to this setup even if it means a slightly longer install process, do it once and do it right babeh

    Shane SP25Shane SP2528 giorni fa
  • I would just leave the ac in and build yourself some different bottom brackets
