VW Jetta 'Getta' HY35 Engine Blows and Fire Starts!
My friends 2002 Jetta (2.0 auto) that was swapped with a 1.8t/manual swap,
custom intake manifold and custom turbo
kit with a Holset hy35, ls2 coils, unitronic ECU, digital climate control
swap, audi tt front spindles, clutch masters fh400 clutch setup and audi tt
awd 6speed tranny (will be converted to awd this year).
The stock rods we know were the weak point but it didn't bother us because
we have a fully built motor to go into it. During the video we were having
issues with controlling the Boost
and hitting 2.29-3.3 bars of Boost... and well you'll see the result. The
reason for the fire was a nylon tube that melted and covered the turbo area in oil, which burnt the shifter cables
and some wires. No big loss, 150 dollars in parts and a crazy drive. Will
be back soon with over 550whp ;)
The car was fine we were 1/8 of a mile from the house before it caught
fire. Towed it home and found that the number 2 rod went threw the block
RIP stock 1.8t
Build thread can be seen here
We want to thank the two families who used their car for us to drive to our
house and grab all the water and helped extinguish the fire. We thank you
SO much. Please if you ever see this video contact us we would like to
repay you in some way. To us you guys are heroes.

Top Gear Lotus Exige S vs Ford Mustang
The Lotus Exige (pronounced /ɛɡˈziːʒ/) is a two-door, two-seat sports
car made by Lotus Cars. It is essentially a coupé version of the Lotus
Elise, which is a roadster that is mid-engined and has been in production
The original Exige (NA or naturally aspirated Exige) was launched in 2000
and had a 1.8 L Rover K Series engine in VHPD (Very High Performance
Derivative) tune. It produced 177 bhp (132 kW; 179 PS) in standard form and
192 bhp (143 kW; 195 PS) in the "track spec" version.
In 2004, the Series 2 Exige was introduced. It features a 1.8 L 16-valve
DOHC Toyota/Yamaha engine that produces 190 bhp (142 kW; 193 PS) with the
Toyota engine designation of 2ZZ-GE. Compared to the Series 2 Elise, it
has a front splitter, fibreglass hardtop roof with roof scoop, rear engine
cover, and rear spoiler. The sole purpose of these aerodynamic additions to
the base Elise is to create more downforce (almost 100 lb (45 kg) of
downforce at 100 mph (160 km/h) in the Exige versus 13 lb (5.9 kg) at 100
mph (160 km/h) in the Elise).
In February 2005, Lotus announced a limited production run of 50 Exiges,
using the Toyota engine with a Supercharger, that increases the power output to
243 bhp (181 kW; 246 PS). These vehicles were only available in yellow or
black, representing the colours of Lotus Sport, and are badged 240R. They
have a projected 0-60 mph (0--100 km/h) time of 3.9 seconds and 0-100 mph
(0--160 km/h) of 9.9 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph (249 km/h) at a
cost of £44,000.00 (approximately $72,500.00 or €51,000.00).[citation
The North American Exige was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in
January 2006. In February 2006, Lotus announced the Exige S model which
used a supercharged Toyota engine producing 220 bhp (164 kW; 223 PS).
The S was also made available in North American markets as a 2007 model.
