Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt. Some of the products featured in this video may be supplied by sponsors. For a list of our current sponsors please go to

    • These are very similar mods I did to my first project car which was a 6 speed manual '04 Mazda 6 with a V6. I bought some wedsport rims, lowered it, put a new exhaust on it and added a turbocharger, I also backlit the dash and added an aftermarket sound system

  • If your buying a small car like this any upgrades you do should be cosmetic, comfort, or efficiency and safety. "Performance upgrades" to get more acceleration or top end out of your car, or even extream handling, are not in any way worth it. Remember what you car will actually be doing. If you have a small car like this, probably driving to work and the store. Thats it. You want to do something fun with a vehicle either get a Jeep, a larger Toyota, or something like that and then modify it for low end performance and add things like new lights and bigger suspension. Or, and this is my biggest recommendation if you already have a car, buy an airplane. "Part 103 ultralights aircraft" dont require a license (although do get some training for you own sake) and are extremely fun. They also only cost $15,000-$30,000 depending on how fancy you want to get and have a lot of customization you can do to them too. Check out the Badland Ultralight for an example.

  • Once I get rid of my Chrysler 300 I’m hoping to get a 2019 Camry. If that becomes the case I’m gonna touch on a few of these mods. Can’t wait to revisit this video. Y’all helped me actually overcome my fear of mods and I did a few to this 300. Put subs in and did the wiring so that everything worked through my steering wheel controls still Exhaust modded and added a EVO wing which ya isn’t for everyone but shoot.... my car my life. Also replaced the headlight lenses with after market black backs so it looks meaner but overall stayed away from anything major. Hopefully some day I got extra scratch and can do some of this other stuff like rims and coil overs.

  • I hope all is well I feel like God laid this on my heart for me to send you this message! The Bible verses that changed my life which was Acts 2:36-43. I just wanted to say that Jesus Christ can restore your life and that is a promise according to Acts 2:39, and God loves you. If you’re in need of a good church near you here you go to google & type in UPCI Church locator a man named Gabriel helped me find the church that I went to before I moved and they led me to the church that I do go to now! God bless have a great one 🙂. I prayed for you I hope all is well 🙂
