Torque Converters Explained -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
In this video I cover the purpose and operation of the turbine, stator,
impeller, and torque converter clutch. I hope the explanation and
practical give you some insight into how these parts work to not only
transfer power from the engine to the transmission, but also how it drives
the transmission pump and doubles the torque output of the engine when you
take off from a dead stop. I've wanted to make this video for some time.
In fact I've had the fans sitting in the back of the shop for almost a
year. Now that I have the Automatic Transmission Dissection video under my
belt I thought I would add a torque converter dissection into the mix. I
hope you enjoy this video and that it gets you a better understanding of
torque converter operation. Especially since I killed my air compressor
cutting this one in half.

Hot Version 116 (Part 1/3) - Toyota 86 (FRS BRZ) three step tuning
HV takes a stock 86, invites Amuse to improve it in 3 simple steps. Step 1:
more grip with some Direzza Z1s (2 seconds faster around Tsukuba), Step 2: coilovers
(not a huge improvement as now the car is too grippy but not enough power),
Step 3: add power and strip some weight out (another second faster). Best time of 1:07.172 which is very
quick for a car with no power. faster than a stock DC5R or FD2R.

2013 Subaru BRZ Test Drive & Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/subaru/brz/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Subaru BRZ,
along with its twin brother, have been named to Autobytel's Car of the Year
List. The BRZ is the first rear wheel drive sports car that Subaru has
developed in over 50 years. The BRZ is all about balance and handling. The
Boxer engine has a flat design and allows for the center of gravity to be
lower in this car. The 2013 Subaru BRZ is a real driver's car and with a
base price of $25,494 that is well within reach of most enthusiasts.
Take a car that has RWD, a manual transmission, and the engine up front;
add those things together and you have a recipe for an exciting sports car.
Toyota and Subaru have joined forces to produce such a vehicle. We have
already tested the Scion FR-S now let's take a look at what makes the 2013
Subaru BRZ such and amazing car. From afar the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ
look almost identical. But up close you will notice the front end differs a
bit between these 2 automobiles. The BRZ sports classic Subaru Blue Paint,
along with the diamond cut grille inserts in the bumper.
Under the hood the award winning FA20 engine is a horizontally opposed 2.0
liter flat-4 Boxer. This engine produces 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft. of
torque. You can pick between a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Fuel economy is excellent at 25 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway.
The 2013 Subaru BRZ differs most from the Scion FR-S when it comes to the
interior. The BRZ has a standard navigation screen and leather wrapped
steering wheel and shift knob. The BRZ has a cool push button start and
aviation style switches. The 2013 Subaru BRZ packs more standard features
and options than the Scion FR-S.
The Subaru BRZ is a pure driving car. It's a blast to take out on the road.
The 6-speed manual is near perfect with its show throws. The pedals are
perfectly placed for heel-tow downshifts. The brakes are responsive and the
steering is direct. This car is all about having fun.
