Ruby Tuesday - Turbo or not Turbo...

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

That is the question. Okay, I know that yesterday was supposed to be the last VW post, but then I remembered today was Ruby Tuesday. My wife suggested I post this hot red bug taking it's turn on the dyno. Even though this car didn't win "King of the Hill" in the horsepower wars it was a pretty impressive vehicle. Besides the beautiful red paint, the Porsche wheels and fat tires all tucked under the fenders you really should have heard the engine. For those of you that aren't familiar with turbochargers that's what you see at the upper end of that pipe in the engine compartment. Turbochargers, when installed on a properly built engine can really "boost" the horsepower. This car definitely sounded as nice as it looked.
