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.

Chris Hinson's 1997 Pontiac grand Prix GTP, l26 lower end, XP cam, Ls6
valve springs, Ls1 Throttle body, 85mm MAF, coated SSAC headers, wrapped
crossover, Dynomax Exhaust, 3 inch cutout, race-tronix fuel
pump, HD fuel pump rewire, Alternator voltage Booster, Triple Edge Performance transmission

lower intake, ZZP modular pulley system, 3.3/3.0/2.8/2.6, 4" air intake,
Dowker rebuilt heads (milled .020), 9.73:1 overall compression, DTM
This car made 335 WHP on a ported gen 3 Supercharger, Non-intercooled!! and a 3.0 inch
pulley. This setup produced a 12.7 second 1/4 mile at 110 mph with a 1.9
second 60 foot. and was capable of mid-low 12's with slicks.
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.
How to replace a crankshaft sensor on a grand prix gtp
This video is dedicated for the GTP owners that need to do the same
crankshaft replacement procedure as I am demonstrating. I hope this video
helps anyone out there that needs to tackle such a job and the video also
shows that it can all be done with simple tools which in turn will save you
time and money.
Ebay Turbo Grand Prix GT
02 Grand Prix turbo. I am using the
following ebay parts: turbo, wastegate;
BOV; Oil feed and return system ; turbo
blanket. I am using Hp tuners. I am 880ft above sea level.
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.
