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.

Cartuning Performance Grand Prix GTP Turbo runs 10.93 @ 127.55 mph
10.9 run in full street weight (minus mufflers). Would have been a quicker
run if 3rd gear would have held (you can hear it switching between 2nd and
3rd...I also let off the gas at the 1/8th mile to try and make it shift,
and it ended up going into 4th for the rest of the run!)
400hp Grand Prix idle
Not all high horsepower 3800s have to be
loud. This 340whp setup runs a stock Exhaust, stock manifolds, an engine that hasn't
been cracked open, gets 28mpg on the expressway and even has luxuries like
navigation and bluetooth. Whether you want loud and ostentatious or quiet
and subdued we can get your 3800 set up.

This car made 335 WHP on a ported gen 3 Supercharger, Non-intercooled!! and a 3.0 inch

It currently has a Gen V blower and will be tuned to run a 2.8" pulley or
We hope to make close to 360 WHP on this motor and 460 on a dry shot of Nitrous.
