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.

Cobalt SS/TC Vs. Z28 Camaro LS1
Bolt on auto LS1 Z28 vs Cobalt SS turbo... stock on first run, selectable email tune
on 2nd run... 2nd run was cut short due to the Camaro infront to keep things
safe.. was leading about by 2 cars and the Camaro flew buy because I was on
the brakes while he was still accelerating..

Cobalt SS Turbocharged Mods
***Update March 2013*** http://youtu.be/bIZ9m-S3GMY
Since the video, I added a K&N SRI instead of ZZP Intake tubes. I also took
off the Canuck Motorsport springs and added Pedder Springs and swapped my
stock K04 turbo for a K04+ Big Wheel
Upgrade and Dyno'd in
at 347whp 397wtq on Trifecta.
Since the Dyno, I
switched to HPTuners and have yet to get Dyno'd. I imagine it has at
least more torque, but not 100% sure.
Here's my 2009 Cobalt SS turbocharged. I
thought I'd make a video with the major mods on it. There's other little
things I didn't think were worth mentioning like LED bulbs instead of
regular, OTTP Tranny Stage 2 Mounts, Black SS badges and other small
Hope you enjoy
Viper 5704 2010 Chevy Cobalt SS Turbocharged
Here is my 2010 Chevy Cobalt SS turbocharged, I have a Viper 5704v installed.
Pretty much the same layout as my previous car (no longer have) Mazda RX8.
This alarm system for this particular is a little different rather because
it's a GM vehicle or what not still works the same. I was not able to have
the installer install the window module due to the so called "clutch wire"
issue so it went into overtime and the alarm system itself was only
installed. Will make another video with the window module installed.
Overall it's a nice system to have and these hot summer days it's not a bad
idea to have remote start. If you have any questions let me know!
