Turbo Duster gets crazy on the street, blows up on the dyno. Great Depression Racing
Blow out 2 cylinders (the Copper O rings on the Cometic headgasket) on the Dyno. Also bend the crankshaft. First Dyno pass (600+) fails to record. Car does 446whp on 4 out of 6 cylinders on the 2nd pull. You can see the entire coolant system empty itself during the 2nd Dyno pass, plus some weird ground wire catching fire (stupid OEM wire that was 10 feet long when it only needed to be 3 inches long, no wonder Dodge is having troubles the last 20 years).
This was the 2009 Nissan Dyno day Event. Won for most HP even though motor was blown but obviously the Junkyard is not a Nissan.
The street pulls the night before included hitting 24 pounds of Boost twice (accidentally) without adjusting the air/fuel ratios which probably lead to the crankshaft starting to bend. Fixed the Boost controller and worked from 9 psi up to 19. 18psi on the Dyno. Chase car is a 50 trim turbocharged VW Jetta on 15 pounds of Boost nick named the "Stangbanger" for keeping up with his friend's Twinscrew 331ci AFR heads stroker Mustang.
11.5@125 Turbo Duster, Return of the Junkyard on $90 stock Dodge Caravan motor.
22 pounds of Boost through the bone stock Dodge Caravan 12 valve 6g72 (140crankhp stock). Fuel system fails to provide enough fuel at the top end of the second run and that equals instant death on a cast piston naturally aspirated design motor. still ran 12.1@112mph with 2 blown cylinders on the second pass. Yes, I got my but kicked by the CRX. Cortney Green tuned his 2000 pound car and the owner is a much better driver with many more passes under his belt. I get killed on the 1-2 shift.

moving an engine with a chain and car
my freinds and i are attempting to reach the turbo on the Exhaust pipe on the bottom of the car without the hood (dodge shadow turbo the car had been junked because of the trans and sat at a local junkyard and we were given permission to get the turbo from it... "if you can get it off you can have it") we assumed that meant do what you have to do to get it off... so we called up our friend with the honda prelude and wrapped a chain around the engine and then to the back of the honda and yanked it alot for a while..... the jigsaw that my friend brought to cut the pipe ended up with a bent blade so the pipe was never cut all the way so yanking the engine resulted in slowly but surely tearing the pipe (the friend in the basketball shorts wanted the turbo for his car)
550+whp Roll Racing in Vegas. The Junkyard vs a modded Cummins. Great Depression Racing
Cummin's is owned by friend and he actually towed the car down to Vegas to go racing. We missed the tech inspection so we decided to play around and get some frustration out.
This is the last time the built low compression motor was used. Motor was inspected and had some damage on a piston from a spark plug failure and I didnt feel like polishing up the piston and continuing to use the low compression motor when I had a perfectly good bone stock 140hp Dodge Caravan 6g72 motor sitting in my driveway that just needed a turbo system bolted to it.
Car did 516whp on 20psi at the Dyno but on the street the same wastegate setting makes 24-25 pounds of Boost and gets VERY hairy over 100mph.
The Junkyard runs 11.99@117 on a 140hp $90 Dodge Caravan motor from the junkyard. First pass.
Add turbo system to a motor that makes 140hp at the crankshaft. E85 fuel. PT6765 turbo. 16 pounds of Boost.
stock heads, stock cams, stock headgasket, stock shortblock, stock naturally aspirated ECU. No tune. Rising Rate regulator for fuel and Methanol injection.
Car was finished the night before racing and the junkyard water pump locked up on the freeway and had to be changed in the Home Depot Parking lot so we could make it to the race track. Got booted because the junk motor had a camshaft seal oil leak. Instead of fixing the oil leak. I built an oil catch pan (required for 11 second cars at our track in the next race season anyways) so i would not have to repair the oil leak. I was not going to spend money fixing this cheap junk motor. Great Depression Racing
384whp turbo Duster vs 442whp Nissan SR20VET (variable cam), Torque wins. Great Depression Racing
Coheeds GT3076 powered Sentra on 17 to 22 pounds of Boost vs the precision 6765 powered Junkyard and its clogged fuel filter limiting Boost to 13 psi. Coheed couldnt understand how he lost the race until he looked at the torque numbers at his friends Dyno shop and how wide the powerband is. He actually called his friend to open up the Dyno shop to prove the car couldn't run higher Boost and was out of fuel. First organized fun run against a very fast car. So since then he spent a lot of time trying to widen his powerband and has enjoyed the results!
Missle Test Road 1st-3rd Spinning Drag Radials (The Junkyard's beginning). Great Depression Racing
Testing out VHT (Trackbite brand) applied to a test road while using drag radials. Failed to hook up in 3rd gear even though the car was on minimum Boost (6psi). Probably better to spray the VHT out ahead of the car because doing a burnout through the puddle didnt seem to help the next time we went down the road (not in video). Trackbite does work at the track on slicks. Just spray on the tires are you are pushing the car through the staging lanes. Slipped 2 clutch discs before upgrading to a dual diaphragm pressure plate.
