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

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!
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:
