CUMMINS TURBO DIESEL 240SX
Alchemy Tuning brings you the world's first turbo-diesel powered 240sx. After 10 years of the
idea floating around, a Cummins 4bt was pulled out of a bread truck and was
swapped into a 1992 Nissan 240sx convertible.
Intercooled for 50psi, 40 city mpg!!!!!!!!!
Build still in progress, full build details still to come

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:
Autobahn: Lamborghini Murcielago "vs." our VW Diesel Golf Wagon
Located on the German Autobahn, recorded April 19, 2010, somewhere on A1, I
forget exactly where. I was driving our VW Golf Wagon rental car loaded
with 4 people and heavy suitcases, and we found this Lambo stuck behind
cars in a construction zone, so we tried to catch him to no avail. (Note: I
did not take this video while driving- my passenger did). You can tell the
driver was just itching to get the little cars out of his way. That car was
born to race!
