Is Turboing Your Car Worth It?

Bílar og ökutæki

The day has come to find out if all of our hard work has paid off, has it been worth it to throw a turbo kit on the Miata in our journey for more power. Today we wrap up what needs to be done in order to get the Miata back down to the Dyno at EF1 Motorsports. Will it explode? Will it even make it down? Will it make more power? So many questions!!! Let’s get to it!
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!

    You can't really.. change... dead time? Dead time is how long it takes the injector to go from fully closed to fully opened... The only factors would be cylinder pressure or voltage... neither of which you can change? He may be thinking of "Pulse Width" Which is the amount of time the injector stays open? Hard to tell if he doesn't know his terms, or if someone is feeding him a line, or what is going on here. This channel is very fun to watch, but it's annoying how many times in a video I have to stop and go "what did he just say?", because whatever car term he uses is either super outdated or genuinely makes no sense.

    The reason it ran super rich is not only that the injectors were bigger, the gap that they made on the sparkplugs was way too small for the car untuned thus not burning an optimal amount of fuel. Learned this the hard way.

    Hey I got a r18 z1 in my Honda Civic 2015 ex coupe and I have begun to mod it a little I have put better injectors like 24p, a performance fuel pump, magna flow exhaust with 2.5 opening, and also a k/n air intake and changed fuel pressure valve and Oxygen sensor. I have been looking into tunning all this once I put a supercharger or turbo charger, but I have one problem I would be running all this on a cvt transmission...any suggestions
