Extreme TURBO failure
Filmed back in 2004 this video shows what happens when a turbocharger suffers a catastrophic failure. Here the turbine wheel breaks off the shaft and exits via the Exhaust. This is why you should run a cross pipe inside the Exhaust to prevent this from happening on a drag car. Just to clarify some of the comments regarding what turbo it was? It was a Garrett TA45 journal bearing turbocharger. http://www.facebook.com/fullBoostcomau http://www.youtube.com/user/fullBoostcomau http://www.fullBoost.com.au
Exploding Turbo Charger: NS Locomotive Failure With a Smoke Show Near Toledo, Ohio.
**READ FULL DESCRIPTION** This was a great departure scene of an NS mixed freight departing from a red block untill some jack wagon goes around the gates and blocks my shot and after that....... The Un-Expected happens............ NS mixed freight: C40-9 # 8862, EX- CR SD70 #2573(ol' Smokey), SD70M-2 #2737, and C40-9W # ? The smoke was caused by a blown turbocharger gasket and the locomotive is burning it's own lube oil. it's a huge deal and the loco diesel engine can be saved but it needs to be shut down asap also It got all over me, the camera, and my grandpa's truck, but it was an awsome experience!!!

EPIC FAIL Turbo blown Detroit Diesel Series 60 12.7 MCI BUS smokey mess!
This engine did not run away, it was not sucking in oil. The driver thought the bus was on fire and immediately began evacuating passengers as soon as the bus stopped. For the person that called someone a dumbass and said the bus started in reverse, absurd! The bus has an automatic transmission - how is the starter going to crank the engine over in the proper direction THEN instead of turning right after its already spinning its just starts turning left? Absurd! The bus was shut off off once and was not restarted, it was towed from the scene. He shuts it off just as I pass by the rear of the bus(see annotation). I was behind this listening to the turbo climbing an overpass. There was a loud BOOM, then smoke everywhere I couldn't see a foot infront of me. turbo let go, leaving a trail of oil. All the smoke that you see, with out the proper air mix from the turbo the engine is not burning the fuel correctly so that's why you see all the gray smoke! The engine is running at around 1,000 RPM if the engine had ran away it would be have been loud an in pieces. A lowboy was called but couldn't pick up due to angle of over pass and potential for tipping. So, a wrecker was called to hook from the front.
S13 Top Speed And Engine Failure
testing top speed of 200SX S13 1.8 turbo CA18DET ... blown engine at 240kmh (actual GPS verified speed - rear tires were bigger than stock)... conrod broke in 5th gear at 6400rpm (at top speed and peak power) and was launched trough engine block... on german autobahn, ofcourse... ;) ;) ;) btw... the car was bought for some spare parts, we knew the engine was not that good, but checked all the fluids...after the engine blew it acctualy didnt matter, I really dont like CA engines anyway... right now i have 3 S13's (1 CA i 2 SR) and 1 build S14 SR...
