2014 Subaru Forester and XT Turbo 0-60 MPH First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Subaru Forester and the 2014 Subaru
Forester XT are now 4th generation cars. This means that they have a strong
and loyal following from a built in customer base. And when a car has been
around a long time and it still continues to sell well most automakers are
loathed to change it very much. And this is certainly the case with the new
2014 Forester which has grown slightly bigger but still carries on both
inside and outside the design and engineering of the current model. In this
TFLcar First Drive Review we see just how fast the XT turbo is 0-60 MPH. Thanks to Subaru and Sean
Maynard for providing some of the video footage for this review.

Turbo Diesel Mini Bike
Start at 2:13 to skip the intro, or click here for a helmet-cam ride:
This is an idea I've had since I was a kid, and after watching Mike Cberts
Diesel mini bike video I was inspired to put together my own! The frame
has been around since I was 4 years old! At that point it was powered by a
3 hp Briggs and Stratton and is a Fox corporation, Trail Bug probably from
the 60's or early 70's. The engine is a copy of a 10 hp Yanmar single
cylinder Diesel engine and the turbo is
similar to the one on my Honda CX-500 turbo motorcycle. The engine runs at 3,600 rpm
max and top speed so far is 39.3 mph.
Here's a description of 2 stroke & 4 stroke Diesel engines:

how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the 2013 Fusion: It's a really
great car, it feels like your in a class above in this car. Material
quality is superb and everything is well put together. The My Ford Touch
can be finicky to use, but that's the only gripe. There is a variety of
powertrains to choose from and this car has very eye catching styling, at
least in the average consumer's opinion. Another slight gripe is that a
fully loaded Titanium model can ring up at almost $40,000 which is pretty
expensive for a midsize sedan. If your looking for a Eye catching sedan and
want a nice luxury taste to it, but don't want the price tag of a BMW or
Mercedes, than this is your car.

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!┬áDuring 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.
