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.

08 Cobalt SS vs 2011 SRT-8 Challenger
This was my first time to the drag strip in my cobalt, as I mostly do
AutoX. Needless to say I was having severe traction issues off the line
with the 18inch wheels but I still turned a decent time imo. The SRT-8 was
brand new and its owner was a super nice guy. He said he just dropped 53
large for it. I got a ride in it later and it was impressive, considering
Inexperienced driver (me) took the Rollercoaster far too hot, and
punishment was dealt.
To answer commonly asked questions:
Total damage was ~$4200, with $2200 of that being labor, and $1000 being a
The car is just fine, and has lived to fight another day - I've been to 4
more HPD events since this, without incident.
