2013 Ford Fusion vs Nissan Altima 0-60 MPH Mile High Matchup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Ford Fusion and the new 2013 Nissan
Altima directly compete for the same car buyer. They are both four door
mid-sized family sedans that have gotten bigger for 2013. They both get the
exact same EPA MPG but that is where the similarities end. The Fusion we
tested has a turbo-charged ecoBoost 4 cylinder engine mated to a traditional
6-speed transmission and all-wheel-drive. While the Nissan Altima gets a
bigger 6-cylinder mated to a CVT transmission. In another fun and
informative 0-60 MPH TFLcar review, we compare both cars to see not only
which one is faster but which one
it the better buy.
Leaf-Blower Supercharging a 1978 Chevrolet Monza Spyder! - Roadkill Episode 16
On this episode of Roadkill, it's fun with Leaf Blowers. Experts on the
Internet said it would never work. That's never stopped Freiburger and
Finnegan, and this time on Roadkill the guys put the theory to the test:
can hardware-store leaf blowers supercharge an engine and make power? Step
one was buying a '78 Monza Spyder with a 305 V8 and a four-speed stick.
Step two was to take it to the shop of HOT ROD Drag Week racer Jeff Lutz to
tune it up, swap the engine to a 350, Dyno test it with five leaf
blowers, and do a whole bunch of needless burnouts. Step three was to drive
the Monza to Willmington, Ohio, for the East Coast Timing Association's
Ohio Mile event, a standing-mile race where they'd find out if leaf-blower
power adds up to more speed in the real world. The outcome? Who really
cares? Because on Roadkill, it's always about the adventure. And more

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.
