    Keeping with MCM tradition, our last episode of the year is out on Christmas Day. While Christmas is a day of celebration for a lot people, for many others it can be a difficult, lonely time particularly for those with broken families, severe financial stress, those dealing with the bush fire crisis or families dealing with the loss of a loved one. While we can’t fully understand what each person is going through, we want to acknowledge that for many people it won’t be the kind of Christmas we see on TV. Don’t worry about NOprojects videos of people getting new super cars and houses or $1M for Christmas. This stuff is not reality and certainly not a basis to compare your own situation. The best gift you can give anyone is your attention - keep it simple and don’t give yourself a hard time if your Christmas Day doesn’t look like the ads on TV (nobodies Christmas Day actually looks like that) Huge respect to all of the emergency services personnel and volunteers that are battling bush fires around the country. And for those that need some extra help, please check out the ReachOut website where there is free support for those in need. All the best for the end of 2019 and we hope you enjoy the episode. - MCM

    Hey guys !! long time subscriber right since the stealing the girlfriends car to PIMP out for 500$ lolol LOVE the show!! keep doing what youre doing! really shows you can start from anywhere and with time and effort you can accomplish so much. Anyway fan stuff aside lol, my question to you is, do you guys know if the 1zz-fe 1.8 corolla engine will work instead of the 2zzr engine? I have a 2006 Scion xB AND a 2004 Toyota Corolla. The Scion is basically a yaris with a different body, with the 1.5L but the Corolla has thw 1zz-fe instead of the 2zzr. Im hoping it will still work. Any insight would be greatly appriciated!

    I just sold my 2012 yaris L 1.5L, I put 264K miles on it since new. During that it was fluid & filter changes, tires, brakes, one rear hub/bearing, 2 batteries, 3 alternators & the other assorted basic mainteance. It was one of the most reliable cars I've ever owned. That said.... It was getting tired, it was starting to burn oil... after sitting for more than a couple days it would smoke on startup. It would have been a perfect candidate for this swap....

    I dont think you would get twice the performance, it would be a little faster than the corolla or probably same performance.Trust me the whole engine and trans should fit the Yaris

    Hate to break it to you boys...but that was in fact a 1.5 1nz-fe motor not a 1.3 hahaha...the 1.3 has the exhuast manifolds on the front of the car where as this clearly doesnt. You could have just turboed the 1.5 its the same block as the turbio one and has low compression ratio unlike the 1.8 corolla motor that had no turbo option. The 1nzfe would have made that same 150hp all day. they can make 200hp and still be reliable..But there was for sure something wrong with that one it didnt seem to be hitting vvti when ytou guys raced it.

    I mean how much heavier is a Corolla than a Yaris? Not much heavier I would bet ; so why not just get a Corolla from the start and maybe do some mild weight reduction
