Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

1997 Eagle Talon TSI AWD 16G Turbo 23 PSI Driving on the highway
My friend and I going for a drive in his 1997 AWD Eagle Talon with a turbo. He's running about 23 lbs of Boost making around 350+ WHP. You can hear
the waste gate open as he gets into the Boost. This engine was completely rebuilt by
the privious owner. Rear seats have been removed, as well as some of the
carpeting. A strut brace is where the seats once were. This car also
features Sparco bucket seats but no race harness :(. Exterior, mostly stock
except for a carbon fiber hood and matte black painted factory wheels. This
was filmed in Pittsburgh, PA on a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition on 1080p

Buschur Racing 350 EVO VS Eagle Talon TSI AWD
The last race of the night ended up being the best and what a way to end
This car is a Mitsubishi EVO. This car is no regular EVO, it has been
equipped with the Buschur Racing 350 package. Here is a little break down
from BR's website.
Power hungry? Then you're going to love this. Introducing the BR350
Evolution 8, brought to you by Buschur Racing and Medina Mitsubishi. Here
is a sedan that can blast to 60 mph in less that 4 seconds. If you think
the stock Evo 9 is impressive, you haven't seen anything yet—350 hp and
355 ftlb of torque. If you crave raw power, then the BR350 is for YOU!
Engine Type: Inline four cylinder
Displacement 122 cm3
hp at 6500 rpm
Torque: 355 ft lb at 3500 rpm
Speed 0-60 mph: 3.9 seconds
Speed 1/4 mile: 12.6 at 110 mph
Starting with an already impressive sedan the BR350 package propels the Evo
9 into super car status. This optional performance package will not only
drop your 0-60 mph times from 4.7 seconds to 3.9 seconds it will also drop
your ¼ mile times from 13.4 at 104 mph to an amazing 12.6 seconds at 110
mph! You will also lose some weight, taking an additional 55 pounds from
the cars already lightweight design. Impressed with the cars stock horsepower and torque
levels? How about an additional 74 horsepower and 74 foot
pounds of torque bringing the Evo 9 to 350 horsepower and 355 foot
pounds of torque! You'll find this is more than enough to take yourself and
4 of your friends to dinner......very quickly.
With the BR350 being the big brother to the BR330, of course means more
modifications and more bang for your buck. The following is a complete list
of the modifications done to the BR350.
BR 2.5" Mandrel Bent Stainless Steel Downpipe
BR 3" Mandrel Bent Stainless Steel Catback Exhaust
BR Air Filter Kit
Oil Pan Heat Shield
BR Polished Exhaust Manifold
BR Spark Plug Cover
BR 2.5" Upper Intercooler
Pipe w/ stock BOV
BR Mini Battery Kit
Ported Exhaust Manifold
Ported Turbine Housing
Ported 02 Housing

All night I was having great success with my reaction times BUT I jumped
the gun on this one. Even though I red lighted, this was the closest and
most joyful run of the night.
I started out by jumping the gun :( Even though I got the jump on the BR
350 he quickly regained that ground and more. Looking at the time slip, the
EVO had me beat from the start by three tenths. I left the line 3 tenths
before the EVO and he caught up to me by the 60 foot!!!! This was a great
run and I only started making up ground on the top end but it was not
I hope that you enjoy this video and if the Owner of this car would like to
come back out to VMP, I would love a friendly rematch without a red light
on my behalf :)
