WE TEST: Was $17,500 worth of car mods worth it?

The miata is finally +turbo so it’s time to go back to the racetrack and see if Zach can run a decent lap at Willow Springs. Since last time we were at this track, the cooling system has been upgraded, the brakes have been upgraded, we’ve added an oil cooler, moved to a standalone ECU, and of course, added a turbo kit; to make an overall total of $17,500. Will all this money in mods be worth it or will we have big issues again?
Big thanks to @EADExotics for hosting another great track day!

    relieving crankcase pressure will also free up some horsepower since the pistons are not fighting pressure on the combustion stroke... also be sure that the oil level is correct otherwise it will aerate creating more crankcase pressure. adding relief to the block would be most beneficial, rather than just the valve cover.

    No offense, but you should have stopped there when you first saw the oil leaking and smoking. Keep trying it can only cause more damage to both internally the machine and externally the safety of other ppl on the track.

    Oil leaks on any engine that's 20+ years old isn't really an L. Now you've just gotta do a full gasket job, or what would be better is a full forged internals and head build since that would force you to replace all the gaskets anyway.

    That stustustu is actually compressor surge and it’s not really a good noise. You can fix it by adjusting your blow off valve or her fancy with an anti lag system. A recirculating BOV would be a good investment. Also you’re valve cover breather is capped creating extra pressure pushing all that oil out. Vent it to atmosphere or plumb it into the turbo inlet.

    if a stock 3.8 Buick engine will give you more hp then what ever you have done to a engine,,, it's not worth it, the options for a cheap dependable 225 horse power is really a very wide range of choices, need to make video where pull that motorcycle engine out put something in it, at least you have a decent power plant to start with rather putting bunch money 100 hp base motor, miata are great cars because you can fit a v8 in them
