    It’s truely incredible how Donut manages to spend so much money modifying cars that don’t run

    • @BaddDukk says:

      No doubt. @AlexMartini goes on about modifying your car to ultimately make it less reliable

      Still a better love story than Twilight

    • @cowmath77 says:

      @@BaddDukk its almost like these car companies spend billions of dollars on engineering for a reason.

    • @CountersteerGarage says:

      Isn’t that all of us though?

    • @sleep_sounds says:

      Guys always ask me the first mods to make when they get their first Mustang. I reply leave it stock. I’ve been through them all and there isn’t one that wont make it look worse, drive worse, ride worse, or be less reliable. But they never listen until they make the mistakes for themselves.

    That Civic is Donut’s highest paid employee.

    I went to school for HVAC, and you guys made the explanation of refrigeration process more digestible than most of the people teaching it for a living.

    • @zaboo4088 says:

      ngl I’ve had AC explained to me so many times and this video had me like “oooooooohhh I get it now”

    • @stevel.6046 says:

      mainly because they left alot out and mixed temperature with pressure a bunch

    • @mister_magister3798 says:

      Honestly i had quite fair idea of hvac listening about it countless times from multiple youtubers but NOW it makes sense, i thought the fluid is expanding in evaporator and instead its expanding in check-valve or whatever that was

    • @EastDallasKicks says:

      Should bought Craig migliacios basic refrigeration book. By the time I hit heat pumps (like the second set of 3 classes) I finally caved in and bought it but by then learned a lot just through YouTube lmfao

  4. @xgsx9817 says:

    Props to the editors for giving a perfect presentation on how the hvac system works

      Repent to Jesus Christ “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
      ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40‬:‭31‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    This really shows you need a good platform and a direction for your build. If you don’t know where you’re supposed to end up, you get the worst of multiple worlds and the best of some

  6. @rogerkidd6103 says:

    $50,000.00 to only come out with 230 hp is crazy

  7. @user-gt6jl1xt8h says:

    The real question is how they got an eg hatch for $500

  8. @ModelA says:

    You took the phrase “Polishing a turd” to a new level. And, I’m impressed!

    hope you guys are gonna get a hood with a sick ass scoop for a sweet ram air situation

  10. @matthewheitzman5993 says:

    This is the perfect opportunity to put that Autozone Aisle 5 special hood scoop to good use😂
    You really should cut the hole in the hood big enough so that none of it blocks the intakes, and then use the hood scoop to cover the hole

    • @cameronliddell9533 says:

      just cut 2 inch slits in line with the edges of the filter and then fold that piece down and then ad the scoop. that way it actually funnels the air onto the filter rather than letting it into the engine bay directly
