Welcome to another exciting episode of Mighty Car Mods We’ve got a Toyota corolla everybody! That’s right!
It’s about time, Martin. Yep, this is awesome. Hold on, I’ll just… change lanes. What are you doing?
The indicator’s don’t work, you’ve gotta manually do it, old school. You have to have to manually click them? That is oldschool. What’s it– like, tell me everything. Martin, all I know is are there’s a lot of hair in the back, both animal and human. It doesn’t smell so doesn’t have any leaks. This is a 1992 Model Toyota Corolla Criminal Edition Criminal Edition? The CSI. Oh wow See? See what happened there? um, Martin that’s all I know about it. What else do we know? It might have been made in Dandenong, or it may have been made in Japan And now Martin will fill you in on the rest of the details Marty: This is a Toyota corolla a super reliable and bulletproof Hatchback from the early 90s it features four doors green paint, a steering wheel for steering, some seats to sit in, and a four cylinder 1.6 liter engine with efi People had these. These are the cars you got when you’re on your peep late because that was sort of, you know … when I was that age know like 10 years old, and they were starting to get cheap of economical and reliable like and getting five speed Manual, air conditioning, power steering In a car this size, it’s like Super Toyota reliable Oh like I remember them being like six, seven, eight, nine grand order This is two, and it works, and it has six months of rego. Which is amazing We have named the car of course, and he shall be known from this day forth as Derek and he’s … We have named the guy report, and he shall be known from this day forth as Derek Haneen’s are my Derek He’s going to see a lot of abuse That’s best equipped and Derek is going to help us discover some untapped portals and wormholes in the automotive universe not Absolutely in its beautiful Hatchback Front-Wheel drive holy Pedestrian nature we have to say like it includes it includes our Nesting it includes a sat nav who has one of those anymore. What else then a lot I come from water which is not out To anything oh service bring your service history history chocolate either breaking the cars or removing window wandered Among some guys those glasses the pyramid here saw them amazing and the potato best car ever There’s awesome. Man. Whoa man pbis man may be done. Let me don’t drive with my wife there you go Yeah are throwing this car man? risking your life So today we are off to work out one of the incredible mysteries of the universe The Aztecs couldn’t work it out the egyptians couldn’t work it out the greek philosophers didn’t know what to do But today man ice and Derek we’re going to work it out. I Mean hey you know what we’re doing today. No, okay? So we are here today to answer the age-old question Will you make any more power when you stick a cannon on your car? we’ve got this secondhand Brand-new unused but Secondhand off ebay and importantly it has the blue flame tip which apparently makes more power now while we’re at it Because we’re on the dyno. We’re also going to do a straight pipe. So we’re going to end up with three results We’re going to have the factory Muffler We’re going to have the church street spec Cannon mid 90s and then of course we’re going to have the straight pipe as well Let’s do it with the Standard Muffler we’ve made 49.9 kilowatts So the maximum power that we achieved with the Factory Muffler is forty nine point Nine kilowatts at the wheel which is pretty good because these things from the factory rated about 75 kilowatts That’s a flywheel so considering this thing has been around for 25 years or something. That’s pretty good so now It’s time for the paramount of National thousands of these have sold like since the nineties and when we first saw these things Thousands of people have run them. They’re on cars all the time like why? They look good like noisy and do they make power will for that’s a movie So we’ve swapped out our factory muff La La La La and now the Cannon is on the car. Which is the moment that we’ve all been waiting for our 49.9 I just want to hear the song of the corollas people yeah this song that’s just like that big you know big long strip Down Parramatta Road, we’ve got the high buildings and the cannons at 5,000 rPM and the little 1.6. Liter is going for it Yeah, absolutely so here it is if we get more than forty nine point nine Everyone Gopanna count on your car. Let’s do this everyone 51 So forty nine point nine kilowatts was the best with our standard muff Yes, and then we put on our mad at Cannon and we’ve made 51 point four is that statistically significant? When you’re only making 50 kilowatts, it’s a fair bit Into two and a half percent you can’t feel that they can hear let’s be real probably not but losing x graph it looks good The thing is we’ve made power. It’s actually official. It’s made power, and it does seem pretty good look it’s back inside at all I Guess what we want to try now, though, because you know cannons can cost hundreds of dollars We now want to use two or three dollars worth of pipe and see it’s half straight pipe can either Equal it or beat it. I’ll see what happens straight part time. Let’s do it Let’s be hook With our straight pipe on it’s time to do another run So these are the results with the factory muffler We’ve got forty nine point nine kilowatts with the Cannon we’ve got 51 point four kilowatts Which is an actual increase in power and with the straight pipe We’ve got 51 point six the highest power of the day I have to say the cannon sounds a bit But cannon does sound the bet but I thought I’m surprised as I did those words are coming out of my mouth But it actually sounds a bit. I think before we call it conclusive that the Cannon makes more power and sound better There is one more thing that we can try No doubt you’ve heard of the disco potato, but have you heard of spherical back pressure oscillation It’s something that we have been wanting to try for ages and so we’re going to be using a potato in our straight pipe and The idea is that this needs to be right in the middle of the pipe so we’ve drilled a hole in it And we lit a little bit of wire to go straight through the potato like this Out the other side then we’re going to push that so it’s right in the middle and now ah That’s hot send that down And we’re ready to go for another run all right dial potato power. Let’s do this mate well I’m top right There it is everywhere does that even mean the potato had given us the biggest power increase so far today But first let’s answer the original question – the results are in and we made more power with our cannon it also happened It’s down better, and what looks better. Well, that’s questionable. Yes We did make a couple of kilowatts But somewhat amazingly unsurprisingly the most power that we made today was with a potato jammed in a piece of pipe We would explain the science if we understood it, but we don’t is it going to work for your card? Do you like potato salad? I don’t know But tell us all about it because if you actually understand why this does what it did that? We would love to hear all about it of course you can follow our balls on the face balls That’s face balls on boards nice big balls Ah there it is if you want to support the show you can get stickers and t-shirts and everything from the mighty car mods Website it’s light enough on the thing now. That’s it man and go eat some potatoes man, really I just want to do drift – who invented chips and who turns potatoes into fried chick who invented the potato Martin That’s the real question So you guys like to hear about all the various bits of camera and gears and stuff that we use To shoot the show with Jack Martin a lot of you detect. We should all ourselves a variety of cameras the new one We’ve got the moment is this Canon 5D Mark 4 never breaks Just really good sort of like Angle the spherical lens captures lots of sort of thing you can do you want to do 360 with it you can as you can see it’s 360 degrees and you can basically just attach that to anything any elements rain hail or shine will work really well come to this awesome mount And essentially all you really have to do is just sort of bolt it on *Typing* *Almonds Crunching*
