Mighty Car Mods is an independent automotive series created by a couple of friends, Marty and Moog who started filming videos on Martys mum's driveway in 2007. They've come a long way since then but still have an unwavering focus to show their viewers fantastic automotive projects that they can do themselves at home.
The MCM boys make cars, and they make movies. In fact they do it all, including the music, editing, and automotive with some help from their friends along the way.
Being completely independent, the boys don't have to answer to anyone except their own creative spirit and their focus is on quality over quantity.
It doesn't matter if you have a brand new turbo charged beast, or an old banger found in your grandfathers shed. Mighty Car Mods openly embraces anyone who wants to better themselves and their cars through involvement with the MCM Community.

  4. Alan Green

    The quality of this show continues to impress me! Top job lads, as always.

  5. Volume Dealer

    Nobody wants that generic trash T-shirt.

    Poo fighters!

    That was epic!

  8. Nick Canham

    You Aussie lads are spot on..

  9. Alexandre Albergaria

    saw the intro - already gave a thumbs up. See the final - wanna give another thumbs up!

  10. V V.

    I love how it has a helmet lock... That’s the least of the worry when you can just pick the whole thing up and literally run away with it.😂😂

  11. Stephen Hill

    Can I just say that I want to know what blew. I also want to know if that cheap turbo unit caused it.

  13. joshua galvan

    You should've thank the guy that said he was adding morrre fuel to cool it down.. what a bunch of wankers!

  14. joshua galvan

    Ahh the moment we've allllllll been waiting for

  15. lego technic

    Was that the piston rings?

  16. Andres Toro


  17. Eplicor Hunts

    oil starvation cuz no baffled sump @ the track = rip

  18. Ryan Hatfield

    For what it's worth, this is a good example of what you can do with a shoestring budget. Not everything needs to be a ten thousand dollar bells and whistles build.

  19. Ryan Kiefer

    Next for Yaris Hilton -- A BIGGER BLOCK. Start with an AR engine, which will get you between 180 and 200hp depending on which one you get, then boost that! You're gonna need a bigger clutch, and an LSD.

  20. max worx

    Makes me want to buy a yaris now...

    1. Adam B

      You would not regret it. I owned 2 and 2ZR swapped and turbo'd one. fisels.info/video/videot/qXiXeqWUhoh3a2w.html fisels.info/video/videot/bpWviqelm4lhi4U.html fisels.info/video/videot/nnbbqdCem2Bqipc.html

    your car needs a puf otherwise it goes poef

  22. ikke

    I don't think I am the only one who would like to know what went wrong.

    1. Adam B

      You definitely aren't the only one. I have a particular interest as I dd this 2ZR swap and turbo to my 2006 Yaris RS. fisels.info/video/videot/qXiXeqWUhoh3a2w.html fisels.info/video/videot/bpWviqelm4lhi4U.html fisels.info/video/videot/nnbbqdCem2Bqipc.html

    I ended the video when you said petrol

  24. DCAPImages

    Another couple of cars and you will have enough tracks to make an album

  25. Spike Bebop

    Alas, poor Yaris, we knew her well. But not too well it seems. Any plans to put the paddles to Yaris and bring her back from the dead? She seemed to be game for anything.

  26. Phillip Jack

    Noooooooooooooooooo just listen to the noises it was making before Rodney made his noise please resurrect Yaris Hilton!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Rafael Bautista

    The end was perfect great job guys

  28. Paul Trock

    Those guys from Elite... Wow! First class job gents!!!

  29. Yono Sudirman

    IT WHAS TOATALLY BROCKEN! BROCKEN KLATSCH... Ich liebe die Deutschen <3

  34. Grocery Grip

    As awesome and as light and powerful that Yaris Hilton is, you can CLEARLY tell that the gearing was constantly taking that car out of its powerband, reminding you that it's an economy car. But hey, what its worth, I'd certainly do what they did, ANYTIME!

  37. Илья Дегтярёв

    "Page UP !!"

  38. Lawrence Lentini

    That doesn't sound like bottom end knock, more like an accessory (possibly condenser). Yaris Hilton might live on.

  39. KoreRacer

    Rebuild and prep for WTAC!

  40. Jordan Eggerman

    Hey, man, I know I'm a bit late on this one, but I'm American and I both understand why they did the frustrating "doodle" on the gas cans, and *absolutely despise it.* Awful design, and it needs to burn in the depths.

  41. Paul Aguirre

    i can has it?

  42. vw BROS

    Mission complete now self instruct

  43. RikuMikael

    I feel that part when you talked about working on piece of sh*t cars. I turbocharged a 95 Suzuki Swift with a bone stock 1.3 in it and blew it couple months later (last week) on a motorway. That was my daily too 🤣

  44. SrDarkWarrior

    How can I get the turbo flutter sound in my car

    1. Adam B

      Install a turbo and don't install a blow off valve. The surge might kill your compressor, but it would sound cool while it lasts. If you watch my third video, you can hear what it *should* sound like. But, yes, much less dramatic than with no BOV. fisels.info/video/videot/qXiXeqWUhoh3a2w.html fisels.info/video/videot/bpWviqelm4lhi4U.html fisels.info/video/videot/nnbbqdCem2Bqipc.html

  45. VentoDriver

    RIP Yaris Hilton

  46. Peter Corpus

    Well, thumbs-up!

  47. PKMartin

    6:28 I can't believe you blew it up literally as you came off the throttle crossing the line on the first 59 second lap. Yaris Hilton's destiny was to deliver this one lap and go out in a blaze of glory. What's the legal situation around giving small Japanese hatchbacks a viking burial in Australia?

  48. Wyatt Suski

    love the song at 35:11 XD

  49. Graham Clay Clay

    How to blow a car up

    1. Adam B

      Yes, that would have been a more appropriate title for this video segment.

  50. Stalewater 24

    started with a 2000 dollar cresta ..but endend up with a 9.9 sec car worth how much in work hours and parts ?

  51. Star Yobox

    Looks like a FORZA H3 loading screen with one of my dream car

  52. Leon Mumford

    Flogiest video to date.

  53. Hunter DeSantis

    Untested, yeah sure. Notice how they didn’t turn the car over in that clip, hahah. It had already taken a dump.

  54. canna roe

    Why didn't you use 5:55 camera angle for Marty ran up to the car with the phone? Because it wasn't under a minute.

  55. Simon Hjelm

    Sitting out on the terrase, waiting for my girl gjetting ready for some romantik dinner here in Thailand on a beach on vacay. Waching you guys blowing an over inspiered Toyota engien just made my night😍😂😱 regards from the biggest fan in Norway💪

  56. phzoink

    Now it's time to bigger block it, 2.4 2AZ and turbo that

  57. Jason Young

    *Slaps roof of car* this bad boy can fit so much f****** spaghetti in it.

  58. Equinox Designs

    Imagine what this thing would do with a budget built engine, and the same eBay turbo. I imagine it would hold the power just fine and run these sub minute laps consistently.

    1. Adam B

      I wouldn't even need a built engine. A *healthy* 2ZR is more than capable of handling the 200 they dyno'd. Check out Lotus Elise Cup 260 - exact engine, forced induction, 250hp. The ran no BOV and had terrible compresso surge, no gauges such as AFR, boost or oil pressure. I think it was intended to blow for dramatic effect - if in fact it's blown at all. My 2ZR swapped and turbo'd Yaris works great, no issues with the engine and I occasionally abuse it: fisels.info/video/videot/qXiXeqWUhoh3a2w.html fisels.info/video/videot/bpWviqelm4lhi4U.html fisels.info/video/videot/nnbbqdCem2Bqipc.html

  59. Deep hug

    Bring her back from the brink! I want to see "Yaris Hilton Reanimated" Basically, keep rebuilding her until you have a Fury Road-esque yaris!!

  60. Tyler Weigel

    Thanks Marty and moog you two guys are the best!

  61. Tricks

    Fuck I love the Yaris Hilton theme song. Made the entire series worth it!

    1. Deep hug

      NOOOOO, Yaris cant die like this, forged rods and pistons, decompress, flow match the head to the turbo and a retune, that or to cut costs throw in a lower kms block, perspe

  62. Joffa alien

    good ol castrol oil lol

  63. Jerry Cambel

    Gt86 or brz


    Put custom filter going inside your car for the cold a/c lol

  65. Charlie Miskelly

    A build that I didnt think I would be very interested in, that turned out to be great! Well done lads!

  66. ellisd82

    To end with the full Yaris Hilton song is amazing! 7:55

  67. TheFartenator

    Well the 150wkw Yaris DID beat my time in a completely bog standard '02 MX5 on regular tyres with maybe 75rwkw... by 0.3s :P

  68. Orrin Quinton

    It was the corolla engine, not the yaris that died. Bigger stronger engine next time. Im excited to see what Carsales is going to provide next.

  69. Jussi-Pekka Salorinne

    Hope they open the motor up and show what actually gave up.

    1. Adam B

      A lot of people are asking for this. A healthy 2ZR should have handled this, no problem. It's been proven (Lotus Elise Cup 260 @ 250HP forced induction - exact same stock motor and turbokits.com kit for the stock 2ZR). My 2ZR swapped and turbo'd Yaris works great, but I got a low mileage, strong engine, and I put gauges in to monitor AFR, oil pressure, boost intake temps etc. fisels.info/video/videot/qXiXeqWUhoh3a2w.html fisels.info/video/videot/bpWviqelm4lhi4U.html fisels.info/video/videot/nnbbqdCem2Bqipc.html

    Can't believe the whine on this little nugget

  71. リバイアライアン

    Its performances based on WRC that is sponsored by latest Toyota Gazoo Racing itself..nice cars and performances..its very rare to get one with a coupe.

  72. Leander Dau

    Anyone knows if they were ever a thing in Europe, can I get a street legal one?


    Is it good or not?

  74. Freddy Gaertner

    I feel like this is the most "old-school mightycarmods" series that came out in the last few years, almost shed a tear at the end

  75. Ryan Mackey

    Catchy song. I’m amazed the little Yaris transaxle held up

  76. Davo Gayo

    Rego. That confirms that they Aussie.

  77. Foeke

    First off, thanks for this serie! I was kind of waiting for you guys to install a LSD. But didn't think it would survive 200HP anyway. For the sake of science I would like to know what went wrong. What about doing the same kind of stuff with a even smaller car. The Citroën C1 (french aygo copy) has an 1.4 diesel option (instead of the 1.0 gas version). I believe the 1.6 hdi is the same, but with a bit longer stroke. swap the engine and chip that. But I would like to have that with a LSD.

    1. Adam B

      But, the engine should have survived, if it started off healthy. An LSD would have been amazing. It has been installed on a 2ZR-powered Yaris. Check out Armstrong Racing. Here's my 2ZR-swapped and turbo'd Yaris. It works great, no engine problems: fisels.info/video/videot/qXiXeqWUhoh3a2w.html fisels.info/video/videot/bpWviqelm4lhi4U.html fisels.info/video/videot/nnbbqdCem2Bqipc.html

  78. Tom Parsons

    That end song has to be made downloadable..... do we need to start a petition and a go fund me page??

  79. Paul Allen

    Well there you go, Money and Lego. Volkswagen Golf owners are rich kids.

  80. Servus Labskaus


  81. Ben Yip

    Lotus Elise cup 260 has 184kw with the same engine

    1. Adam B

      YES, YES, YES! Why then, did this engine blow? Was it old and tired? Did it stay within planned boost? Who knows, it had no boost gauge? What was the AFR at failure time? Who knows, no AFR gauge? What was the oil pressure? Again... As cool as the turbo sounded, no BOV and insane compressor surge couldn't have been good for the turbo. My 2ZR-swapped and turbo'd Yaris works fine and gets driven hard on occasion. fisels.info/video/videot/qXiXeqWUhoh3a2w.html fisels.info/video/videot/bpWviqelm4lhi4U.html fisels.info/video/videot/nnbbqdCem2Bqipc.html

  86. Mike Taylor

    3:54 "that's mechanical docking, isn't it?"

  87. wuntyful

    NOOOOO, Yaris cant die like this, forged rods and pistons, decompress, flow match the head to the turbo and a retune, that or to cut costs throw in a lower kms block, perspex windows and cut and crease some panel work and maybe some strut tower braces or square tube brace under the floor.... or all of the above xD

  88. Steve McLean

    I knew Yaris Hilton would end up going home on Trailer Swift eventually. Good fun.

  89. me217

    It actually looks cool (for a yaris)

    One of my housemates drove with the oil light on twice in different cars. The second one had extreme knock, still drove lol, with oil in it. But ended up scrapping it as the engine would have blown up eventually.
