Small turbo engines don't deliver | Consumer Reports

In the quest for better fuel economy, Ford is offering small turbocharged engines in the Ford Fusion and Ford Escape. And Chevy put a turbo engine in its Chevrolet Cruze. But Consumer Reports' tests find those small engines come up short. Find out how other vehicles perform with our Guide to Fuel Economy: http://bit.ly/QxSuoQ

Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #27: Models to Avoid
When you're spending your hard-earned money on a car, we think you deserve a good one - and some models are better than others. This episode focuses on those models we think you should avoid, presented by category. Don't confuse this with a list of the "worst cars." Cars like the BMW 7-Series and Ford Taurus certainly aren't among the worst cars out there, but they are bad choices within their respective market segments.

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.

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.





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 burnouts.

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: http://youtu.be/U5XyrXEZKu8 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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=k3gMTqaNwlE&NR=1





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.
